Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has called on Nigerians to be patient as the new Executive Committee is determined to do things differently and turn things around for good.

NFF President, Amaju Pinnick made the plea on Sunday after reflecting on the Super Eagles’ unimpressive outing against the Falcons of Sudan in Khartoum on Saturday.

Having never lost to Sudan in the past 47 years, the Eagles played poorly and lost 1-0 in a match they needed to win, thereby endangering qualification for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

It was also Sudan’s first goal in the qualifying race, having been humbled at home 3-0 by South Africa and pipped 1-0 in Congo Brazzaville.

“We understand that Nigerians are furious over the fact that the Eagles are last in their pool and are in danger of not qualifying for the finals in Morocco. Everyone feels bad about this, including the members of NFF Executive Committee.

“I just want to call on Nigerians to have patience. This new board is determined to do things differently. We are passionate about the Nigeria game and what we want to achieve is build a sustainable football culture for our dear country,” he said.
