The President of the Nigerian Football Federation, Melvin Amaju Pinnick has called on the Super Eagles players to make Nigerians forget the defeat inflicted on them by the DR Congo on Thursday, October 8, 2015.
According to the NFF president, the way to achieve that will be to beat the Indomitable Lion of Cameroon come Sunday, October 11, 2015.
Speaking to the players in the dressing room after the loss to the Leopards of Congo, Pinnick urged the players to put behind the loss and also the rift between Oliseh and Enyeama so as to focus on Sunday’s game.
“There is no time for us to dwell on this defeat. We were not at the last Africa Cup of Nations finals, but the Congolese were there and finished the tournament as bronze medal –winners.
“It is not an excuse to lose to them but it is a fact. However, I have no doubt in your ability to turn things around when we play Cameroon on Sunday. That means you need to put this defeat behind you and focus hard on Sunday’s match,” Pinnick explained.
