AFCON QUALIFIERS: There is Nothing Wrong For Super Eagles To Travel By Boat- Nff President

Published

on

President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, has said he sees nothing wrong with the Super Eagles travelling by boat to the Benin Republic for an African Cup of Nations qualifier.

Coach Gernot Rohr had said the team would most likely go by boat to avoid the bad roads that link Nigeria and the neighbouring Benin Republic.

“But because the road is not good between Lagos and Cotonou, we will travel to the match on a boat because the crossing only lasts two hours, instead of many hours on poor roads,” he said.

This raised concerns among the players.

However, Pinnick who appeared on ARISE News programme, The Morning Show, on Wednesday said he sees nothing wrong with going by boat.

“Going to Cotonou by boat, I do that all the time. When we were going to inspect we did it. There is nothing wrong with exploring other forms of adventure in Nigeria,” Pinnick said.

He, however, said the NFF is yet to conclude on the means of transporting the players for the AFCON game.

The AFCON qualifier against Benin Republic has been fixed for Saturday, March 27 in Port Novo.

Champions League Final Between Manchester City And Chelsea Moved To New Venue (See Details)

Published

on

 

The Champions League final between Chelsea and Manchester City will now be played in Portugal after the UK government and UEFA could not reach an agreement over quarantine exemptions for more than 2,000 VIPs, staff, and media for the match to be played at Wembley.

The all-English final between the Premier League clubs was originally scheduled for the Ataturk Stadium in Istanbul on May 29, but the devastating Covid outbreak in Turkey forced UEFA to look at alternative venues.

The Wembley stadium in England was considered as one of the possible venues, but the UK government has placed the country on its red list for travel, and banned English fans from going.

According to Sports Mail, the 50,000-capacity Estadio do Dragao in Porto has now been lined up as the venue for the final after UEFA struck a deal with the Portuguese authorities over the attendance at the match.

Chelsea and Manchester City will each receive a ticket allocation of between 4,500 and 6,000, with the announcement to be officially ratified by UEFA on Thursday, the report said.

Before now, health experts and MPs slammed the decision for putting supporters at unnecessary risk in the middle of a pandemic, insisting UEFA should have foregone VIPs this year and made it a ‘fans’ final’ in London instead.
