President Muhammadu Buhari, has charged them to play every match for the honour of motherland and make him and fellow Nigerians proud.

His words, “I will be watching, just as millions of Nigerians would also do. You have our solid support, and we will cheer you to victory”.

He noted that football is a strong unifying force for Nigerians, and urged the Super Eagles to provide a soothing balm to the many challenges facing the country, which the government is confronting with everything at its disposal.

“Nigerians are known for their unconquerable spirit. Show this in the group stages, and even beyond. Nothing but lifting of the diadem is good enough for our country,” President Buhari stated.
