Criticism was levelled against the NFF president after pictures of him and Ebere Eze surfaced online, but Pinnick has defended the decision to share the details of the visit.

On Sunday the NFF revealed Pinnick met with QPR star, Ebere Eze with the mission to convince him to choose Nigeria over England.

However, the decision to reveal the details of the visit to the public did not go down well with Nigerians with many saying the recent Tammy Abraham’s saga should have thought them a lesson.  But Pinnick rejected such criticisms, saying it was Ebere Eze that visited him at his place in London.

There’s no single benefit in sharing this information at this time. Efforts to convince players to play for Nigeria shouldn’t be public. It is actually beneath the NFF president to go around trying to convince a player to play for Nigeria. https://twitter.com/thenff/status/1198495426162446336

”Can you imagine a midfield with Ndidi, Aribo, Etebo & Eze?.” I’ve no regrets talking to Eze, who visited me at home with his girlfriend, Pinnick said.

”We need to make a solid representation at Qatar 2022 & it starts with improving on your squad with quality players like Eze.” We talked at length in my house and I won’t relent on his pursuit until the deal is done.

“He is Nigerian, the next big football sensation and I would rather he achieves that mission wearing Nigeria’s jerseys, instead of playing for another country.”
