Head Coaches of the U-23 National Team Samson Siasia and the Senior Women’s Team, Super Falcons Edwin Okon will this week meet with Chairman of the NFF Technical and Development Committee Felix Anyansi-Agwu as regards crucial qualifying matches for the 11th edition of the All-Africa Games’ football tournaments.
Siasia’s men were held to a disappointing goalless draw by Zambia’s U-23 side at the National Stadium, Abuja on March 22. The team is billed to travel next week for the return leg at the Levy Nwanawasa Stadium in Ndola on April 4. The Super Falcons also drew 1-1 with their Malian counterparts in the first leg of their only qualifying fixture in Bamako on March 21 and wait to host their opponents in Abuja on April 5.
Anyansi in a statement on NNF’s official website confirmed the scheduled meeting with both coaches as mandated by the body’s Executive Committee.
“I have been mandated by the Executive Committee to meet with the Head Coaches of both teams and find out what they will need to ensure qualification. The NFF President is categorical that both teams’ qualification is non-negotiable.
“We will sit down and deliberate seriously on what must be done, what must be addressed. We cannot afford not to qualify for the All-Africa Games,” Anyansi-Agwu said in Abuja.
Anyansi who is a ranking member of the NFF Executive Committee was there when the two teams failed to make it to the 10th All-Africa Games in Mozambique in 2011, meaning he understands how painful it will be for the teams in question to miss out on the All-Africa Games.
The Falcons in during the 2011 qualification lost to Ghana’s Black Queens while the Dream Team were banished on the away goal rule by Ghana’s Black Meteors, losing 0-2 in Kumasi after winning the first leg 3-1 in Benin City.
