The NFF boss also revealed that the new Super Eagles goalkeeper coach Enrico Pionetti was hired as a result of the poor performance of Daniel Akpeyi in the 2-0 home loss to South Africa in June.

"Every game we play we get technical reports and after the last game, we saw some defects in the goalkeeping department," Pinnick explained in the interview.

"We have a goalkeeper trainer, but like they say, two heads are better than one.
