Nigeria football legend, Segun Odegbami, has warned against distractions as the national team plays Ivory Coast in the final of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations on Sunday.
Odegbami, who won the 1980 edition of the competition, said the players must be allowed to concentrate.
The Super Eagles take on the hosts, looking to win the trophy for the fourth time in their history.
“It is never over until it is over. The NFF should not allow any kind of distractions around the team before the match.
“Let us allow the boys to concentrate and focus hard on the task at hand. No frivolous visits to the team camp should be allowed.
“We must all endeavour to help the team. Let them be themselves and remain themselves. This is of utmost national importance and all for the glory of our homeland.
“Nothing must be allowed to distract the players from this crucial national assignment,” Odegbami said.
