Super Eagles coach, Austin Eguavoen has barred the President of Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Amaju Pinnick, and other guests from the Super Eagles’ dressing room during half-time breaks.
Eguavoen made this known during a press conference on Saturday, said the decision was taken to prevent the players from losing concentration.
The coach explained that the half-time break is needed for the players and coaches to discuss tactics.
“We talked about timing and I am still talking about it. It’s our culture – motivation is good.
“Guests can have short discussions with the team at the restaurant and not inside the dressing room.
“Against Egypt was the only time when the NFF president and the Air Peace president came to see the team and it was five minutes.
“In the second and third games, no one came to see the team. I don’t think this will happen tomorrow (Sunday),” he said.
Nigeria will face Tunisia today in their round of sixteen game at Stade Roumdé Adjia.
