Despite Nigeria’s abundant talent, the country’s national football teams have been performing below expectations in recent years.

Nigeria’s Football Federation General Secretary, Mohammed Sanusi, has acknowledged this and promised a significant improvement in the Super Eagles’ performance during their upcoming 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sao Tome in June.

In their previous match, the Super Eagles suffered a shocking 1-0 loss to Guinea-Bissau, which caused them to lose their top spot in Group A.

However, they managed to bounce back in the second leg, winning 1-0 and reclaiming their spot at the top of the group.

The team still has a long way to go to meet their target of winning the Nations Cup, but Sanusi has assured fans that the NFF is working diligently to improve the team.

“We are working out logistics, you know Rome was not built in a day,” Sanusi told NFF TV. ” We are gradually doing things that will improve on what was done last time.

“The former board has done their best. They did well, but we want to improve on what was done.

He stated that the NFF is identifying the areas that need improvement and working on them gradually.

“There is always room for improvement, and we have identified the areas that need improvement, and we are working on them.

Sanusi also acknowledged that apart from the Super Eagles, most of Nigeria’s national teams have not been performing well.

“I can assure you that very soon, all the national teams will improve,” the NFF general secretary added.

The Under-23 team is struggling to qualify for the Olympics AFCON, the Under-20 team won bronze at the last Nations Cup despite their average showing, and the Super Falcons have not been inspiring confidence under Randy Waldrum.
