FIFA President: Pinnick is NFF President, End of Story

first_imgShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram The Supreme Court order as interpreted by Malami, ordered Dalung to reinstate Chris Giwa, who purportedly won the parallel election held on August 26, 2014 in Abuja.FIFA has however refused to recognise Giwa as the elected president of the football association.Responding to a question on the development in NFF and on whether FIFA will ban Nigeria if its interferes with the running of the football body at a press conference in Russia, Infantino said Pinnick was the elected President of the association and warned that Nigeria risked being banned should any external body interferes with the running of NFF.The FIFA President said: “Nigerian Football Association has a President, his name is Pinnick. He has been elected, we have been very clear about that already, sometime ago. I have heard this issue came up again.“The situation is very clear. We have statutes, we have regulations, there can be no interference in the running of the association, of course, and for this reason, Pinnick is working here in an official capacity.  He is the President, he is the President for FiFA,  He is the President elected by the members of the Nigerian Football Association and that is the end of the story.“And if any external body thinks that they can change the situation, then  of course Nigeria would risk to be banned like it’s happening in other countries as well, because we have processes, democratic processes, and they just need to be respected and it is a very clear cut and simple  case, as far as we are concerned. And we have made this very clear and if it is necessary we will make it clearer, maybe you can help us by transmitting that message if it didn’t come across yet clear enough.”Below is the video clip:Video Playerhttps://www.thisdaylive.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/VID-20180713-WA0005.mp4Media error: Format(s) not supported or source(s) not foundDownload File: https://www.thisdaylive.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/VID-20180713-WA0005.mp4?_=300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.  *Says Nigeria risks ban if it interferes with football administrationFIFA President, Gianni Infantino, has waded into the controversy surrounding the leadership of the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) maintaining that Amaju Pinnick is the elected president of the association.Nigeria’s Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung, had  recently issued a statement directing Pinnick and his NFF board to vacate the Glass House in Abuja following a judgment of the Supreme Court of April 27, 2018, which restored the orders of the Federal High Court, setting aside the September 30, 2014, election in Warri that brought Pinnick to office.A statement issued by the Minister’s aide, Nneka Ikem Anibeze, had said the directive followed a written notification signed  for the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, (SAN) requesting the Sports Ministry to ensure compliance.last_img read more

Girls soccer Warriors, Northstars continue struggles

first_imgC-NS would get its own match against F-M 24 hours later, and it would prove even more lopsided as the Hornets had four goals by halftime and kept on going until it had beat the Northstars 7-0.The tough part for C-NS was figuring out which Hornets forward to contain. It couldn’t focus on Knych, who still had one goal and one assist, since Hodge and Lauren Clark both had two goals. TenEyck and Lindsay Coleman also found the net.Now Liverpool had to turn around and face Baldwinsville on Thursday night. When they first met, Hannah Mimas scored four straight goals in the second half to break up a scoreless duel as B’ville eventually prevailed 5-1. Overall, the Warriors did a better job on the defensive side in the rematch at Pelcher-Arcaro Stadium, but still lost, 2-0, twice victimized by Mimas, who converted off a feed from Simone Neivel late in the first half and then did so again midway through the second half, redirecting Neivel’s free kick.Then, in Saturday’s game against Christian Brothers Academy at Alibrandi Stadium, Liverpool played a scoreless first half and then converted in the second half thanks to Abby Brancato’s goal.Yet it still wasn’t enough as the Brothers prevailed 2-1, overcoming Burns’ four saves thanks to a pair of goals by Kennedy Paciaga as CBA netminder Emily Jones recorded seven saves.Meanwhile, C-NS was at Chittenango, who had started 7-0 before taking defeats to Westhill and Marcellus earlier in the week. And the Northstars would continue the Bears’ slide, prevailing by a 3-2 margin.Constant pressure forced Chittenango goalie Cassidy Kelly to make 20 saves. But C-NS saw Madelyn Jackson put in a pair of goals, with Juliana Marullo also finding the net, to offset goals by the Bears’ Madison Wagner and Sarah Martin.After a game Sunday against Athens (Pennsylvania), C-NS would have tests at Baldwinsville and Marcellus this week as Liverpool goes to West Genesee Saturday and hosts Rome Free Academy on Saturday. After a crowded week of girls soccer that included Cicero-North Syracuse defeating Liverpool head-to-head Sept. 19 at Archie Hall Stadium, things got a bit less crowded.The Warriors were back in action last Tuesday night, hosting defending sectional Class AA champion Fayetteville-Manlius, and could not contain the Hornets’ Hannah Knych in a 4-0 defeat.Three times, Knych found the net to earn a hat trick. Morgan Goodman had the other goal, with assists credited to Anna Hartzheim, Chloe Hodge, Sophia TenEyck and Lauren Farrella. Liverpool goalie Mikayla Perry finished with 10 saves.

(AP Photo/Tony Gutierrez)ExpandARLINGTON, Texas — The Angels won a game without a hero.The Angels’ 8-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Monday was cobbled together by 10 position players and six pitchers, with just about all of them providing something for the winning recipe.And Shohei Ohtani wasn’t even among them, with the day off after pitching seven innings on Sunday.Ohtani’s absence provided the opportunity for someone else to shine, but instead the Angels simply collaborated on a rather routine victory, one that pushed their record to 8-3. It equals the best 11-game start in franchise history, last accomplished in 1987. Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone “I didn’t know whether to slide head first or feet first,” he said. “I didn’t know which one I was going to do, but it worked out.”Relievers Noé Ramírez, Jim Johnson, Blake Parker and Cam Bedrosian finished the game. Parker, who had been struggling, tossed a perfect inning.About the only negative on the night was Richards, who in three starts has not yet finished six innings. He’s walked 12 in 15 innings.“It’s still early in the season, so this stuff I’m going to figure out before my next start,” he said. “I’ll get with (pitching coach Charlie) Nagy and watch some film and do some drills in my next bullpen. Hopefully I’ll get my timing and tempo and everything down to where I can fill up the zone.” Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Albert Pujols hit the only homer among the Angels’ 13 hits. Martín Maldonado had two hits, each driving in runs, and one acrobatic slide to score a run. Andrelton Simmons, Zack Cozart, Kole Calhoun and Pujols had two hits apiece. Nine of the 10 players who came to bat reached base at least once or drove in a run, with only Justin Upton coming up empty.The Angels have now scored 68 runs, the most in the American League, even though projected leadoff hitter Ian Kinsler has played only one game.“I think (the lineup) is deeper and we’re getting contributions from a lot of spots in our lineup,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “Some guys aren’t locked in like we hope they will be, but we are doing a good job of pressuring teams with some really clutch hitting.”The hitters and the relievers – one in particular – bailed out Garrett Richards on a night that he walked five, including three to load the bases before he was pulled with one out in the fifth.José Álvarez then came in to face two of the Rangers’ most powerful hitters: lefties Nomar Mazara and Joey Gallo. Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Maldonado acknowledged afterward that the play was more accident than design.Related Articles Álvarez said his mindset was to “just make pitches and stay out of the cookie spot.”Álvarez succeeding in avoiding the middle of the plate, and he got both hitters on routine popups, preserving the 3-1 lead.“That’s a key spot in the game,” Scioscia said. “For him to come in and get two really good left-handed hitters – either one of them can hit the ball out of the ballpark – is huge.”They padded the lead to 5-1 in the sixth, mostly thanks to Maldonado’s bat and – believe it or not – his base running.Maldonado’s two-out single drove in Simmons. He then came all the way around from first on Chris Young’s double down the left field line. Maldonado appeared to be out easily at the plate, but he contorted his body to avoid Robinson Chirinos’ tag, slapping his  hand on the plate. He was initially called out, but ruled safe upon review.last_img read more
