Chairman of the NFF Technical Committee, Barrister Chris Green has stated that the provisional Eagles World Cup list is ready and only a little consolation is being made before it is finally unveiled to the public.
Bar. Green was making the clarification
Bar. Green was making the clarification in a press statement as he frowned at an earlier news report claiming that both the NFF and Coach Stephen Keshi are playing hide and seek with the eagerly awaited list.
The list of players is ready. As we said, Coach Keshi is making more consultations and the list will be released next week. We have not defaulted in any way, because the
deadline for the submission of provisional list of 30 players to remains May 13,” Green said at the NFF Secretariat in Abuja.
The NFF top gun decried a report in a national newspaper which sensationally reported that the NFF and Coach Keshi
lied to Nigerians about the provisional list of Super Eagles for the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals. The report had claimed that Coach Keshi did not submit any List at Tuesday’s Technical Committee meeting and that the
NFF and Keshi tried to manage ‘a bad case’.
“There was no bad case at all. We met with Coach Keshi and we discussed the programme of preparation for the World
Cup, and everyone was happy.
“It was wrong for anyone to say that NFF and Keshi lied to Nigerians. We are responsible citizens and diligent in what we
do, and will never take the nation and its people for a ride Green concluded.
