The good result in Nairobi will count for less if the Super Eagles fail to sustain the momentum against Namibia in Windhoek next Wednesday, NFF President Aminu Maigari has warned.
The NFF boss has charged the Super Eagles not to lose focus of three points in Namibia next week after scooping the maximum points against Kenya in Nairobi on Wednesday.
“It is important that we keep our focus. There are no longer small teams in international football and I believe you will approach the match with your usual seriousness and total dedication, which helped fell Harambee Stars.
“President Goodluck Jonathan (GCFR) is happy with you, the Honourable Minister for Sports is also, and every Nigerian is proud of you for the result against Kenya.
“Let us put the icing on the cake by winning in Namibia,” Maigari told the players in Nairobi, just before they departed for Windhoek.
Nigeria top Group F of the African series for the 2014 FIFA World Cup with eight points, and will qualify for the two-leg final qualifying fixture if they win on Wednesday and Malawi fail to beat Kenya in Blantyre same day. Malawi have six points, followed by Namibia with four, and Kenya have only two points.
