Newly appointed general secretary of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Sanusi Mohammed has described the Flying Eagles seventh AYC title as a “personal honour”. Sanusi replaced Musa Amadu as NFF general secretary last Thursday and three days later the Flying Eagles pipped hosts Senegal 1-0 to win a seventh AYC crown for the country.
“This triumph by the Flying Eagles was a personal honour done to me,” saluted an elated Sanusi, when he received the team at his office in Abuja on their arrival from Dakar. “I was appointed general secretary on March 19 and the number 19 is significant in Islam and three days later, the Flying Eagles won the AYC.”
Sanusi restated the resolve of the NFF to now ensure they are fully prepared for the FIFA U20 World Cup in New Zealand from May 30. The newly crowned African champions are drawn in a first round group that also has Brazil, Hungary and North Korea.
