President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Super Eagles of Nigeria over their 2-0 win against Iceland in their second match at the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup.
The President expressed “particular delight at the confidence, discipline, team-work and indomitable spirit displayed by the young Nigerian players.”
Buhari urged them not to limit themselves but sustain the current winning momentum by going all out against their last group opponent, Argentina, next week.
In a statement by his media aide, Femi Adesina, Buhari said, “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,” adding that “with determination, nothing is impossible.”
The President urged all Nigerians to continue to rally round the Nigerian ambassadors with their prayers and other forms of support.
