Former Nigerian international and member of the technical committee of the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, Victor Ikpeba, has disclosed that the teamâ€™s list submitted by the Super Eaglesâ€™ chief coach, Samson Siasia, ahead of next month friendly tie against Ghana would be screened by the technical committee of the NFF.
The Prince of Monaco said on Brilla FM that the teamâ€™s list would be vetted by the technical committee before releasing it to the public today.
He dispelled the rumour over the rift between Siasia and the NFF on the inclusion of certain players in the list. â€œIâ€™m not aware of this rift because the teamâ€™s list has not been screened by the technical committee of the NFF. â€œThere is a rule that the list must be screened by the committee before releasing it to the press and we have not deliberated on the list, so I donâ€™t know where they got this information,â€™â€™ he said.
