The days of Nigerian players falsifying their ages to get into any of the age grade National Teams or for any other purpose for that matter appear numbered, as the Nigeria Football Federation has concluded plans to get a Registration System through the FIFA connect.
The system will provide the NFF and its clubs throughout Nigeria the ability to manage national and international transfers on one platform, generate transfer activity reports and have greater monitoring levels to enhance transparency and governance.
In a chat on Monday evening, Jibril, a former Nigerian international, also disclosed that Nigeria has now paid for the very important IRT tool that will make possible a lot of things.
“This means that we are now going to be able to register all Nigerian players, wherever they may be, amateurs or professionals, from the age of 10.
“That way, we can keep track of their history, of their progression, no matter where they go, thus eliminating age falsification.”
