Reacting to the development, Pinnick said: "To fellow Nigerians, we call on the entire football fraternity to join us in praying for Carl, and wishing him the very best as he faces an arduous but not impossible journey to full recovery.
Nigeria will hope to improve on the log in the double header Russia 2018 World Cup qualifiers against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon on August 31 in Uyo and September 4 at Stade Omnisports Ahmadou-Ahidjo in Yaoundé
Pinnick, who is the Chairman of the African Cup of Nations at the Confederation of African Football, has also assured the Super Eagles will qualify for the Cameroon edition after sitting out the last two editions.
Well, I think while it is important to take a look at what went wrong in Uyo, which I know the technical crew led by Gernot (Rohr) are working on now, I also think it is important to get out of blame game fast and get set for the other games
Their first competitive victory against the Super Eagles not only boosted Bafana’s confidence‚ Baxter said‚ but can be a springboard to two more crucial wins against Cape Verde on the path to World Cup Russia 2018
