AFCON 2021: Eguavoen Bans Pinnick From Super Eagles’ Dressing Room.

Pinnick was present in the dressing room during the 1-0 win over Egypt and 3-1 victory over Sudan, both in the group stages of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations.


However, the NFF boss was absent during the last fixture against Guinea-Bissau, which the Eagles won 2-0.

Ahead of Sunday’s Round of 16 clash against Tunisia, Eguavoen was asked about Pinnick always coming in to talk to the players, especially when that is time for the coaches to iron out mistakes or talk tactics.

Responding, Eguavoen promised it won’t happen again.

“We talked about timing and I am still talking about it. It’s our culture – motivation is good.

“Guests can have short discussions with the team at the restaurant and not inside the dressing room.
