Sports Wrap-up: Super Eagles sent off in Grand style by PMB

The Nigeria Super Eagles squad was hosted by the President and Vice President at the Aso Villa on Wednesday morning before their trip to the World Cup in Russia.

A whole lot was said at the hosting but the big major talking talking point which I took out, was the comment made by the Captain, Mikel Obi which says

@mikel_john_obi to @MBuhari: “We would like to say a massive thank you for what you’ve been doing for Nigerian football. This is the first time we’re going to a competition like this with no issues of money/bonuses. All we have to do now is go out there and make Nigeria proud.”

This will be the youngest squad going to the world cup from Nigeria and a whole lot of expectations have been placed on them.

Nigeria will play the Three Lions of England on 2nd June which is this Saturday and the second warm-up friendly. They will then round it off with a match with the Czech Republic on the 6th of June.

Least I forget, the Super Eagles Jersey would be available for purchase by the public on June 1.



The teams are the same. Only their journeys are different.

One year ago, the same two squads met in the NBA Finals for the third straight year, combining for a 24-1 postseason record along the way, with Cleveland dropping just a single contest to Boston in the Conference Finals and the Warriors coming through three rounds unblemished.

The 7 Game Thriller will start on the 1st of June at the Oracle Arena.
