FIFA doesn't scare us - Dalung

Nigeria's Sports Minister Solomon Dalung has said they will not be scared by the world football governing body FIFA.

The Minister told KweséESPN on Friday in Kampala that since Nigeria is a sovereign state, they will not bow to pressures from FIFA.

Counting the cost of Nigeria's football crisis

On Tuesday, FIFA showed that it had run out of patience with Nigeria due to the continued crisis in the country's domestic football, and sent a letter warning that if the issues were not resolved by August 20, Nigeria would face instant suspension.

The news prompted Nigeria's acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, to call a meeting with both NFF president Amaju Pinnick and Sports Miniser Solomon Dalung on Wednesday.

Osinbajo did not, however, meet with Christopher Giwa, who is leading the group claiming...
