NFF Move To Ban Two Players From Super Eagles After Latest Act Of Indiscipline, Pressure Mounts On Peseiro

The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has launched an investigation into the conduct of two senior players of the team over their act of Indiscipline during the last round of international games, where the team engaged Guinea Bissau in back to back AFCON qualifiers games.

OGN exclusively gathered that the portion of the communique released by the NFF which centered on players commitment to the team is targeted at two players who were part of team for the last round of games.

They were accused of arriving Nigeria early but instead of joining their teammates in camp, they stayed behind in Lagos partying at various night clubs before arriving the camp of the team on Tuesday ahead of the game in Abuja on Friday.

Despite taking part in one and half training session as the floodlights went off during the first day they trained with the team , the duo were surprisingly included in the team that started the game against Guinea Bissau in Abuja, which Nigeria lost 0-1 at home.

One of the players was subbed off and he immediately changed into his normal clothes instead of the team’s official wear. He sat behind the bench and was on his phone for the remainder of the game, showing no interest in the game.

The other player lasted longer and started the next game where he was judged as one of the worst players on the pitch for Nigeria. Some even said over both legs he played well below the standard he shows when he plays for his team.

Pressure is now on head coach of the team Jose Peseiro to drop both players from his subsequent squads. Furthermore he has been accused of favouritism towards the duo who he still see as a one of the senior players in his team despite their misconduct.
