Cup holders and nine-time winners Nigeria took a 2-0 win from the first leg and then survived a blistering first half in which goalkeeper Chiamaka Nnadozie saved a penalty kick, to rock the Ivorians with a goal one minute before the end and achieve a 3-0 aggregate win to qualify for Morocco 2022.

In a statement released in Lagos, Shina Philips, the President of the Nigeria Pitch Awards, stated that organizers ‘will continue to abide by our core principles of transparency, credibility and integrity as we work assiduously to sustain the longest running football awards in the nation’s history’. 

Pinnick said this on Thursday in Lagos at the formal signing of global telco giant, MTN, as the official communication partner of the Super Eagles and other national teams.
