Nigeria FA to review Super Eagles’ World Cup performance

LAGOS Nigeria (Xinhua) -- Nigeria’s football governing body would have a meeting to review the performance of Super Eagles, the country’s national team, at the 2018 Russia World Cup, an official said on Sunday.

Bitrus Bewarang, head of Technical Committee of the Nigerian Fotball Federation (NFF), told reporters that the federation was yet to do a review of the Eagles’ matches at the World Cup.

This will enable the federation to know the strength and weaknesses of the team and to do a surgical operation with a view to move forward, he added.

The Super Eagles lost the first Group D match 2-0 to Croatia in the opening game, won their second match 2-0 against Iceland but failed to qualify for the round of 16 after a 2-1 loss to Argentina.

The committee head said the NFF seemed to emphasize on the development of young players, where there would be U-13 and U-15 competitions.

UPDATE:

Algeria considers submitting joint bid with Morocco, Tunisia for World Cup 2030

ALGIERS (Xinhua) -- Algerian Youth and Sport Minister, Mohamd Hattab, on Sunday said it is considering the idea of submitting a joint bid with neighboring Morocco and Tunisia for the organization of the World Cup 2030, local media reported.

El Khabar newspaper website Sunday noted that Hattab told reporters in the Spanish city of Tarragona that “Algeria is open to submit a joint bid with Tunisia and Morocco to host the World Cup 2030.”

The idea of organizing the World Cup jointly between these three North African nations was already promoted in Morocco and Tunisia.

Several news websites reported recently that the Moroccan King Mohamed VI has sent a message to Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika to propose him to submit a joint bid to host the World Cup 2030.

This idea has also been widely hailed by users of social media platforms, as they considered that football may alternate politics and diplomacy to unite the divided North African nations which failed so far to build their Maghreb Union entity.
