President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Super Eagles on their two-nil victory over the national team of Iceland in their second match at the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup on Friday.
The President in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media & Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, said he was particularly delighted at the confidence, discipline, team-work and indomitable spirit displayed by the young Nigerian players. He, therefore, urged them not to limit themselves but sustain the current winning momentum by going all out against their last group opponent, Argentina, next week.
Furthermore, the President urged all Nigerians to continue to rally round the Nigerian ambassadors with their prayers and other forms of support.
Ahmed Musa struck twice on Friday to become the first Nigerian to score at two World Cups. The African side will secure a spot in the knockout stage if they beat Argentina on Tuesday in Group D’s final round of fixtures.
A draw would be enough to eliminate the Argentines but would leave Nigeria’s fate hinging on the outcome of Iceland’s game against Croatia.
