Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari has held video call with his country’s national men’s football team the Super Eagles, urging the squad to keep on winning.
In his post on Facebook awhile ago, Mr Buhari disclosed that he had “a video call this morning with the Super Eagles, to thank and encourage them. We are very proud of their exploits in the ongoing AFCON.”
He stated that “It was a pleasure to speak with Coach Augustine Eguavoen, Team Captain Ahmed Musa, President of Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), Amaju Pinnick, and our Ambassador to Cameroon, Gen Abayomi Olonisakin (Rtd).”
“I told the team, “You’ve been doing Nigeria proud. You’ve been winning. Please keep on winning. The Federal Government is supporting you, and I say thank you to all the technical crew and the players. Please keep doing the country proud.”
The Super Eagles will face Tunisia at 7:00pm tonight in Cameroon in the Africa Cup of Nations knockout clash.
Nigeria won all her three Group stage games against Egypt, Sudan and Guinea-Bissau.
