We met a couple of state governments and even made presentation to FIFA in raising the money and I can assure you that the money is 100 per cent certain for them to collect,” the NFF chief stressed while fielding a question on the finances of the Glass House ahead of Russia 2018.Pinnick said that there was nothing to worry about concerning Eagles preparations for the World Cup in Russia.“We are not facing any challenge, and I would like to thank the government of Nigeria for creating the enabling environment for us to strive,” he noted.“The government has given us all the support and more importantly create that stability we always sought in football.

I thank the Minister of Sports (Solomon Dalung) who has been a major supporter of our programme.”He also revealed that he was in charge of Eagles preparation for the Mundial “I am totally in charge of the World Cup and I don’t delegate functions that are crucial because the desire of every Nigerian is for Super Eagles to do well at the World Cup.

The last friendly for the team is planned for June 6 against Czech Republic.“The tickets for Nigeria/England match is almost sold out and it will be a good game. The match would play at the Wembley on June 2, and from then we would go to play Czech Republic in Austria on June 6, before moving to Russia for World Cup,” Pinnick concluded.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
