Minister drums up support for Eagles

The Honourable Minister/Chairman of the National Sports Commission, Engineer Sani Ndanusa, Tuesday, called on Nigerians to storm the National Stadium, Abuja, in their large numbers on Sunday to support the Super Eagles.


Engineer Ndanusa spoke as he received top officials of the Nigeria Football Federation in his office, just before the Super Eagles began their evening training session at the National Stadium.

“We want Nigerians to come out and support the team, and wear green attires as was the case the last time the team played at home, against Kenya. We won that match 3-0 and I believe we will win handsomely on Sunday as well, with the support of our people”.

Nigeria, with five points from three matches, clash with seven -pointer Carthage Eagles in what could be the deciding match of the group. Both teams played a 0-0 draw in their first clash in Tunis in June.
