Nigeria Isn't Coperating - Tanzania Tell CAF

The Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF) have sent a letter to CAF telling the association that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) are not cooperating.

The TFF have also absolved themselves of any problems which may arise when the NFF delegates and Super Eagles camp in the coutry ahead of the AFCON 2017 qualifiers clash.

TFF President Jamal Malinzi expressed his disappointment over the actions of the NFF in relation to arriving in the East African country.

He said: “We are really dissapointed with the actions from the Nigerian FA which borders on disrespect to our federation.For starters they have failed to respond to our inquiries about arrival and even keeping a secret the hotel they are staying “

He continued: “We view such actions have been done in bad faith since we are the hosts and yet we have no information about our visitors. In thiese days of insecurity they are putting themselves in jeopardy since we can’t organise or secure their internal travel since they are not responding to us.

He added: “In light of what has happened we have written to CAF absolving ourselves from any issues that might crop up while Nigeria are in Tanzania since they have flatly refused to heed our calls to provide information.”

Meanwhile, the Super Eagles will be missing Vincent Enyeama ahead of the game after the death of his mother. Joel Obi of Torino in Italy has also been ruled out due to a stubborn hamstring injury which has affected his career.
