According to Alhaji Abdullahi, the eagles are well prepared to take on their opponent in the opening match and Nigerians should expect the best from the team.

He said president Jonathan charged the super eagles to ensure that they bring laurels to the country pointing out that Nigeria’s absence at the medal tables in major outings is unacceptable.
