Ex-YSFON Chieftain, Ezeonwuka Warns NFF: Uyo Stadium Can Ruin Nigeria’s 2018 W/Cup Dream

Nigeria Super Eagles chances of beating Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in the double-header 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers to could be marred if the Nigeria Football Federation insists on playig the match at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium Uyo, , a former Deputy National President of the Youth Sports Federation of Nigeria (YSFON), Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka has warned.

He reasons that not much positive results have  come Nigeria’s way since national teams matches were shifted to the facility.

Ezeonwuka recalls that it was at the same stadium that South Africa, for the first time, held the Super Eagles to a draw at home, 2-2, which stopped Nigeria from qualifying for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

“It was at the same venue that the Bafana Bafana came, saw and conquered the Super Eagles 2-0 in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier last month just last month.

“If you ask me, I would advise that the NFF should move the match venue to another stadium.

“It looks like the Uyo stadium is not favourable to us, it is ‘jinxed’ and the best thing is for the NFF to look for alternative venue.

“Otherwise, Cameroon can come here and defeat the Suoer Eagles, and that will end our 2018 World Cup aspiration.

“Nigeria have failed to qualify for two straight Nations Cup finals and both have their causes linked with the games being played at the same stadium.

“If the results are no longer coming, why can’t we find alternative venue, afterall, there are other pitches in the country with natural grass,” chief Ezeonwuka emphasized.
