CHAN 2018: Moroccan Envoy Tips Super Eagles For Glory
The Ambassador of the Kingdom of Morocco to Nigeria, His Excellency Moha Ou Ali Tagma has given the Super Eagles room for optimism ahead of the 5th African Nations Championship, CHAN which kicks off in Casablanca on Sunday, January 14th.
Speaking in Abuja on Tuesday during a courtesy call by an NFF delegation led by the General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, the envoy said he would be happy to see Nigeria and Morocco play the final of the 2018 CHAN.
“Having said that, I will be most fulfilled if Nigeria and Morocco should play the final match in Casablanca on 4th February,” Tagma said, adding: “If your B team is like the A team, which easily qualified for the World Cup and defeated Argentina 4-2 in a friendly match two months ago, then it can go all the way.”
Sanusi insisted that the NFF treasures the warm relationship between the Federation and the Federation Royal Marocaine de Football, whose President, Fouzi Lekjaa, is the 3rd Vice President of CAF and also a member of the CAF Emergency Committee, like Nigeria’s Amaju Pinnick.
“Morocco is like a second home for us. As I speak now, our Super Eagles are in Rabat training ahead of the CHAN and have the support of the FRMF. We appreciate the good relationship between our two Federations and between our two countries, and will always do what is necessary to service and protect this wonderful relationship.”
Also present during the visit were Morocco’s deputy head of mission, El Houssaine Oustitane, NFF’s Director of Communications Ademola Olajire, NFF’s Head of Protocol Tunde Aderibigbe, Paul Okwudolor and Ayo Ibidapo.
