President of the Nigeria Football Federation, Amaju Pinnick has revealed that the Super Eagles top priority is to win the 2019 edition of the African Cup of Nations.
The Organizers of the football showpiece last week voted Egypt as the host nation for the football tournament, and the NFF boss revealed that he would ensure the nation gets the best warm-up training prior to the showpiece in a bid to reduce the trophy difference between Nigeria and with the rest of the major winners of the football competition.
“There are so many competitions this year and we intend to, as usual, put our best foot forward in each and every one of them. The target always is to emerge victorious,” Pinnick said in a statement by the NFF.
“However, the very big one that we do not want to miss is the AFCON title. We have won it three times but we want it for a fourth time, so that we can close the gap with the likes of Egypt and Cameroon.
“The NFF will work with the technical crew to achieve an excellent preparation for the Eagles ahead of the tournament. Everything legitimate would be done to ensure the Eagles triumph in Egypt. The NFF will equally give the Super Falcons all the support to perform excellently at the World Cup.”
