Three months ago, we reported that Nigeria will soon be getting an amputee football league.
Following that awesome news, the Nigeria Amputee Football Federation (NAFF) just made an even bigger revelation: The country will be playing at the Amputee Football World Cup in Mexico!
The formation of an amputee football league in the country was initially held up due to a backlog of annual fees, which the NAFF was supposed to pay the World Amputee Football Federation (WAFF).
NAN reports that the NAFF has cleared the backlog, leading to the country being invited to the Amputee Football World Cup.
This will be the first time the country’s national amputee football team, the Special Eagles will take part in the global tournament.
With the country expecting to discover talented players through the amputee football league, the Special Eagles should be looking to kick ass at the tournament – especially, since the World Cup is slated to hold in October.
So, the NAFF has ample time to put a stellar team together.
