We don’t have enough money for Zambia match- Pinnick

President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick, on Tuesday raised the alarm over  a  lack of adequate funds   for the Super Eagles’  World Cup qualifier against  Zambia in Ndola on Sunday.

Pinnick, who appeared before the Senate Committee on Sports, lamented  a lack of adequate funding was frustrating   the NFF’s efforts.

He said, “Nigeria was paired with former Africa Cup of Nations winners, Zambia,  Algeria and Cameroon, who have been to the World Cup seven times. Algeria is the highest ranked team in Africa as we speak. It is a group that is called ‘Group of Death’, which means we need to intensify our preparations. We need to monitor our players and make sure that the  ticket is made available. “The good news is that I think we have a very sound technical crew and we also have a lot of our players doing very well, but the missing link is our financial incapacitation, which activates practically everything you do on the field and off the field.
