NFF Postpones Release After Keshi Submits 38-Man List for World Cup
However, Paul Bassey, a member of the Technical Committee, told newsmen after their meeting that the decision to withhold the list was to allow for more consultations.
“However, we took the opportunity to look at details of the programme, which was presented by the Technical Department, concerning preparations for the World Cup in Brazil. Among these are the camp site, personnel and all of that,” Bassey said.
He said the list could only be authentic when it came from the Technical Committee of the federation or the Super Eagles’ Head Coach.
“If we release this list in a hurry, it will look as if we are heating up the polity. But, be assured that when it is ready, we will give it to the media.
“Most European leagues will end in about three weeks from now and Keshi is still studying some players, the number to invite and who to invite.
“For instance, we have read that Austin Ejide has an injury. So, Keshi has to consult to know how serious it is.”
