The Honourable Minister of Sports Development, John Enoh, has requested a comprehensive technical report from the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) following the Super Eagles’ poor performance during the June FIFA window.

This request was announced on Monday by Diana-Mary Nsan, the minister’s Special Assistant on Media.

The Super Eagles secured only one point out of a possible six, with a 1-1 draw against South Africa in Uyo and a 2-1 loss to Benin Republic in Abidjan in their third and fourth games of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying series.

As a result, Finidi George’s team has accumulated just three points from four matches in their effort to qualify for the 2026 FIFA World Cup, which will be hosted jointly by the USA, Canada, and Mexico.

Stating that “the recent results are unacceptable,” the minister said: “Despite the immense support from President Tinubu and the high expectations of Nigerian football fans, the Super Eagles have underperformed. The NFF must provide a comprehensive technical report explaining the reasons behind this poor showing and give cause why there mustn’t be consequences for the disappointment caused by both government and the generality of Nigerians.”

He added: “Our supporters are passionate and devoted. They deserve an explanation for why the Super Eagles have not been performing to the expected standards since after the last AFCON.”
