A disappointed Nigeria Football Federation president Amaju Pinnick has warned the country’s top stars they must be ready to give everything for the team or stay away.
A new-look Super Eagles lost 1-0 to visiting Uganda in a friendly in Uyo on Wednesday.
Pinnick, accompanied by his executive committee members, challenged the players to be at their best and have the best attitude when they represent Nigeria.
“On Wednesday, we were supposed to celebrae with Vincent Enyeama on his 100th cap, but your poor performance has ruined the party and Nigerians are very angry,” Pinnick said.
“When next you receive an invitation letter to come represent Nigeria, you have a critical decision to make: accept it only if you believe you are in the frame of mind to give your everything or decline if you do not feel that way.
“The camp of the national team would no longer welcome average players or good players with poor attitude.”
The Eagles will today confront the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in another international friendly match.
