Speaking with Weekend Sporting Sun, Stanley Nduka Oji, a foremost grassroots football promoter and agent, admonished all Nigerians to eschew bitterness and rancour presently pervading the country's football as a result of recent poor performances of its various national teams.
"There are definitely bad times for our football, Oji stated. "However, I don't think we should continue to dwell on the past or lose hope in the efforts of the NFF, and its plans to take us to Russia 2018.
" We have to believe also in the potentials and abilities of our players to qualify for the World Cup. The players certainly want to go to the World Cup and all we need to do is give them total support, "he further admonished.
Conclusively, he challenged lovers of football and stakeholders to change their mindset positively towards the fortunes of Nigerian football. Adding that such positive aura would definitely rub on the Super Eagles in their onerous quest to regain their pride of place in the football world.
