Minister of Youth and Sports, Solomon Dalung  has tipped the Super Eagles to qualify for the round of 16 from Group D.

In his reaction, Dalung congratulated Eagles for their victory and enjoined them to carry over the hard work, commitment and discipline which brought about the emphatic win against Iceland to their next match against Argentina.

“I commend the players and officials of the Super Eagles for their superlative team spirit, unity of purpose and outstanding performance in Volgograd.

“This victory is sweet and soothing to millions of football loving Nigerians. You have displayed the typical Nigerian spirit that says we can when it appears we can’t. I have no doubt in my mind that the Super Eagles will not only do better against Argentina but will also go beyond expectations at the World Cup in Russia.

“The government will continue to lift the team with the available resources while we expect you to make us proud with your sterling   performance”.
