Former Super Eagles player, Femi
Opabunmi has vowed to stop any of his children from joining the national team in the future. The third Most Most Valuable Player of the 2001 FIFA U17 World Cup like I reported days back is losing his sight and needs money to cater for himself and his children.
Speaking on a live radio programme on Top Radio FM, Lagos yesterday, the ex Golden Eaglets players mentioned that the NFF abandoned him in time of need.
“Its a bad story. Sometimes I don’t want to watch Nigerian football because any day I want to do so, I cry, I don’t know if the NFF will help me now. I needed their assistance. I will like my children to play professional football in future, but I will not allow them to play for this country.
He continued, “My experience brings me bad memories. I will rather encourage them to take up nationalities of other countries
and play international football elsewhere. I believe in God. If He says they (NFF) will do something
for me, they will, and if they can’t, there’s nothing we can do.”
