Read somewhere that NFF has a 9-man team heading for Moscow. What on earth are they going to do there? Is there a requirement for each country to form a 3x3 matrix at the Draws?

Seriously, I know FIFA would have communicated its requirements regarding how long each nation's wedding gown and bridal train at the Draws should be, and I guess even at 10 per each of the visiting 31 nations, the 6,000 capacity Kremlin arena should suffice but for the sake of judicious expenditure and war against jamborees, we don't need more than Pinick, Rohr & a marketing executive to be in Moscow. For crying out loud, they are just gonna be looking at just 8 pots and a screen all through...maybe do selfie ops. The more important thing will be to broker deals for friendlies and hospitality for Super Eagles.

That the likes of Seyi Akinwumi and Shehu Dikko will be on the plane is just Pinick preparing for a battle royal election against a more popular and APC-backed Maigari next year.

Maigiri shouldn't contest. We need some one better. The current VP that runs the NPFl is a good candidate.

Is Dikko not head of marketing committee?

There is a lot to do at the draws:

[1] Negotiate friendlies with other federations who will be at the draw
[2] See if any new marketing deals can be picked up on the sidelines
[3] View the Russian facilities in details
[4] Check out the locations where your team will be based
[5] Agree on a main camp site
[6] Reach agreement with any local vendors or temporary staff you want to hire
[7] Go over every logistical detail with a fine toothcomb, dotting ever I and crossing every T
[8] If you want to do as Germany did in 2014, shipping over their entire camp, this is the opportunity to look for a good location for it
[9] Use this as an opportunity to address the issue of racism among Russian fans. All nine members should go out and listen to what the fans are saying to get a feel for their prejudice
[10] Work on security arrangements. if Nigeria is drawn in the same group as say England or Russia for instance, our fans will need police protection. This is not a laughing matter

These are mostly the jobs of consultants, not NFF staff who neither have knowledge of the Russian terrain nor speak Russian.

Per visiting stadia, you can only know the stadia you will play after the Draws and what's the point in assessing the stadia when league matches are still gonna be played and over 6 months ahead of schedule?

NFF needs to engage a consultant to help look for hotel options and possibly make reservations. The options, based on our first round locations, can be checked out in later alongside the pitches. Rohr's co currence should matter not lackeys.

If we are sending 9 people to the draws, we'd be preparing 90 officials for the WC.

Based on FIFA mock draw simulation, I see Iran in Nigerias group more than anything else

According to the Daily Mirror:

Quote:
What's the worst possible draw for England?

Based on the October FIFA rankings it would be Germany, Costa Rica and Nigeria. There are other nightmare scenarios too though - Brazil, Sweden and Nigeria would also be pretty unpalatable.


I'm glad they are at least acknowledging that Nigeria has potential to lambast them.

I concur with you on this Ayo.
