Former Africa footballer of the year, Emmanuel Amunike has been invited by FIFA for the football conference in London.
The invitation is coming after a just concluded two-day CAF workshop in Rabat, Morocco.
The conference, said to hold before the FIFA Best Awards, will analyse the recently concluded World Cup competition from a technical and tactical standpoint. Also, trends will be identified and compared with previous world cup games based on the report from the 2018 FIFA World Cup Technical Study Group, TSG.
FIFA Deputy Secretary General, Zvonimir Boban while speaking to FIFA.com, said, “The Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup was a huge success on and off the pitch. Through this conference, we hope to present and discuss the main findings identified on the pitch by our experts while listening to the feedback from our member associations.
“The World Cup should be seen as a learning platform that could have a positive impact on football’s technical development around the world. By having a single conference, we can engage with all our member associations at once and trigger a rich and diverse football dialogue.”
It was also revealed that a single event for all FIFA member associations will be organised for the first time unlike the post-FIFA World Cup Conferences organised by FIFA after Brazil 2014 and South Africa 2010, based on the FIFA 2.0 vision, which aims to promote an enhanced dialogue with member associations and confederations at all levels.
Besides the FIFA Football Conference, individual meetings with the technical experts of the confederations and member associations are planned.
Others invited to the conference in London affiliated with the Nigeria Football Federation are the Super Eagles Head Coach, Gernot Rohr and the Federation’s Technical Director, Bitrus Bewarang.
FIFA also extended its invitation to other head coaches and technical directors of all member associations.
