The former President of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, says he still feel hurt with the inability of the Super Eagles to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Recall that Ghana crashed Nigeria’s hope of qualifying for the Mundial after playing a goalless raw in Kumasi before holding the Super Eagles to a 1-1 draw in Abuja.
However, in a chat with Channels Television, Pinnick who was still in charge of the NFF when Ghana knocked out Nigeria said he felt very bad about the result.
The FIFA Executive Council member insisted that they did everything humanly, materially, and spiritually to ensure the team qualified for the tournament but it wasn’t to be, unfortunately.
“Quite at the beginning I felt very humbled, I felt very bad because it’s not just about me or the country, a lot of people were concerned that Nigeria was not there. From the FIFA president to the CAF president, most of my colleagues in the council were asking where are the Super Eagles?
“But of course, you also understand that it is football. It can tilt towards any direction, but trust me that moment in March was my lowest moment since I was born,” Pinnick said.
