Nigeria’s national team, Super Eagles have been told that they have what it takes to advance to the quarter-final of the ongoing FIFA World Cup at the expense of France.
They were advised to work as a team and come out victorious in their match against the Le Blues of France on Monday in the Round of 16 of the World Cup by major sponsor of Nigerian national teams, Globacom.
The indigenous telecommunication company urged the team to improve on their good showing against Argentina in the last Group F match by defeating the French team to clinch the quarter final ticket.
The telecommunication company encouraged the team to work harder and play with cohesion in order to give the team the necessary confidence to win the match.
“The team have started to blend as evident from their last encounter against the Argentines where the Eagles exhibited a lot of confidence and played purposeful football despite losing the encounter,” Globacom said in a statement made available to P.M.NEWS Sports.
“The fact that the Super Eagles almost picked a point from the encounter signifies the new spirit in the team and their determination to excel,” the company said.
Globacom therefore advised the Stephen Keshi led coaching crew to correct the lapses noticed in the last match and use the fittest players to ensure victory over the French team in Brasilia on Monday.
“We are also glad that Nigerians have rallied round the team and we implore the nation to continue to support the team with prayer and goodwill messages in order to inspire the team to excel,” the telco said.
Nigeria is participating in its fifth World Cup. The first was USA 94, followed by France 98. Nigeria’s third appearance was in Japan–Korea 2002 while the fourth was in South Africa 2010.
This is the third time that the Super Eagles will progress to the second round of the tournament as they played in the second round in USA 94 against Italy and against Denmark in France 98.
Africa’s best record at the World Cup is reaching the quarter final which Ghana achieved four years ago. Out of the five teams representing Africa at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, only Nigeria and Algeria made it to the round of 16.
