NFF rates festival football high
The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has thumbed up the standard of the football event, especially that of the women's, at the ongoing National Sports Festival in Lagos.
Executive committee member of the football federation, Effiong Johnson, who has watched most of the women's games at the Agege Stadium in Lagos, said to supersport.com he is impressed by the quality of players on ground.
He also believes the women's national teams and clubs can get a large pool of players from the teams participating in women's football at the games.
"From the games I've seen we have a very bright future in the women's game. For instance, the Enugu women's team have been very impressive and this is where the coaches of the national teams and even clubs should be to look at and select players for grooming.
"Personally I've seen impressive players here and these players over time will become future stars of our national teams," Johnson, who also doubles as the Akwa Ibom State FA chairman, said.
The NFF chief also applauded host of the 18th edition of the National Sports Festival, Lagos for providing good security at the venues of the games.
"The security is top notch. I will score the governor (Babatunde Fashola) and the LOC of the games high for this," said Johnson.
