NFF: Uyo Remains Super Eagles’ Home, Not Moving To Port Harcourt

 

By Richard Jideaka, Abuja:

There is no decision yet on moving Super Eagles home games from Godswill Akpabio International stadium, Uyo to Port Harcourt, General Secretary of Nigeria Football Federation, Dr. Sanusi Mohammed has said, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Reacting to reports in the media that the federation has moved the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Cameroon to Port Harcourt after the 2019 AFCON qualifier loss to South Africa, Dr. Sanusi said he was not aware of such decision.

"We have not changed venue of Super Eagles matches from Uyo to any other venue. I read the reports, but I can tell you that the NFF did not take such decision. For now, Uyo remains home for the Eagles," Sanusi stated. 

"If we decide to change venue for Eagles home games, it will be communicated to the media, CAF and FIFA. For all I know, we have not changed venue. Uyo has been good to us and we cannot because we lost to South Africa run away from there." 

He assured that the Super Eagles would bounce back from the home defeat to South Africa and go ahead to qualify for the 2019 AFCON, adding that it was a good experience for coach Gernot Rohr ahead of the very important clash with Cameroon

The NFF scribe also revealed that Rohr will be monitoring the Confederation cup going on in Russia with emphasis on African champions Cameroon ahead of the August world cup qualifier.
