A brief drama performed out after Nigeria’s humiliating 4-0 loss to Portugal on Thursday in a world pleasant.
Assistant Tremendous Eagles coach and 1994 FIFA World Cup star for Nigeria, Finidi George, was pictured requesting the jersey of veteran Portugal defender Pepe.
As a post-game ritual, gamers change jerseys – which was what Simon and Portuguese defender, Pepe was about to do when George was seen asking to get the jersey as a substitute.
George seemed visibly disillusioned as Pepe defined to the Nigerian legend that the pledge had been made to his participant, Simon.
The ex-international, Finidi George has now come out to clear the air on the incident saying that he didn’t beg Pepe for his jersey, however solely reminded him he had earlier promised to provide it to his son.
The Tremendous Eagles assistant coach Pepe later apologised and promised to provide his son one other jersey.
