The communique further express the committee unhappiness over the performance of the Super Falcons and U23 national team for failing to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
“The Committee rued the unimpressive outing of the U17 and U20 National Teams in global championships this year, as well as the non-qualification of the Super Falcons and the U23 men team for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.
“It resolved that henceforth, players, coaches and backroom staff of National Teams would be tasked to work much harder in their different positions to bring honour to the country from any international match/championship.
“Board was particularly unhappy about the performances of the Super Falcons and the U23 boys despite the active and tremendous support and encouragement of the Federal Ministry of Youth and Sports.”
