NFF collaborates with Iraq

The Nigeria Football Federation has expressed interest to collaborate with countries with pedigree in the game to ensure real growth for Nigerian football at the grassroots.

NFF president, Ibrahim Gusau, stated this in Abuja on Wednesday during a courtesy visit to the Ambassador of Iraq to Nigeria, Mr. Anwer Saeed.

In a statement released by NFF’s Director of Communications, Ademola Olajire, Gusau said, “Our country has a solid pedigree in football, as well as over 200 million passionate football followers and stakeholders. We are aware of the fact that the people of Iraq are also very passionate about the game of football. It is important to seize the opportunity to explore areas of cooperation and collaboration that will benefit our two nations.

“Football is that big unifying factor that keeps getting bigger and stronger in holding the world together and assuming a greater role in international relations. It is also a soft power with a booming economy, and collaboration is needed to accomplish great things and attain higher levels.”
