With the Golden Eaglets having a date with Iran tomorrow in the ongoing FIFA U-17 World Cup, National Academicals Sports Committee (NASCOM) has charged the players and the coaching crew to remain focused in their quest to lift the trophy.
Speaking through its chairman, Yemi Idowu, NASCOM commended the team for berthing in the second round of the championship, while urging Nigerians to rally behind the team.
“I am very happy with the attitude of the team and coaches. They are all well behaved and they get on very well. They are well-prepared and very fit. I wish Issac Success good health and a fast recovery becuase he is a very pleasant boy.
I have tried to give the best wishes from the National Sports Commission (NSC) and NASCOM wherever we can. We are grateful to the Minister and NSC for the support they gave to Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the team. We should also thank Cross River State Governor, Liyel Imoke and their Sports Commissioner, Patrick Ugbe,” he said.
He added: “My advise to the team is that they need to be ready to surprise the next opponents by playing a wider game .”
