Abuja - A team of Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) officials has left Nigeria for Addis Ababa ahead of the country’s World Cup play off against the Walya Antelopes of Ethiopia.
The Chairman of the media committee of NFf, Emeka Inyama, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Umuahia on Thursday that the association would treat the encounter with all the seriousness it deserved.
"We have sent an advance team to Ethiopia to ensure that all logistics are in place. We will ask Nigerians to continue to pray for Nigeria and the Super Eagles.
"Football makes us happy, it brings us together, it binds Nigerians.
"So, we know that a victory in Addis Ababa will put us one leg into the World Cup in 2014.
"So, the players have responded to it. They reported to camp like at no other time in full force, dedicated, geared. So far, everything is okay."
