The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria could not hide his joy after seeing the Eagles triumph against Iceland yesterday in a win or bust encounter in Volgograd.
President Muhammadu Buhari congratulated the Super Eagles on their 2-0 victory over the national team of Iceland in their second match of the World Cup as he expressed delight at the confidence, discipline, team-work and indomitable spirit displayed by the young Nigerian players.
He also stressed that they shouldn’t be carried away but keep on performing at the highest level and sustain the current winning momentum by going all out against their last group opponent, Argentina, next week.
“I am confident that if our players believe in themselves, they can qualify out of their difficult group and even go very far in the tournament,” President said, according Media Adviser, Femi Adesina.
“With determination, nothing is impossible,” Buhari added.
The President urged all Nigerians to continue to rally round the Nigerian ambassadors with their prayers and other forms of support.
