The Super Eagles are seeking the prayers and support of Nigerians as they prepare for the World Cup tournament in Russia.
Super Eagles’ Media Officer, Toyin Ibitoye, revealed this on Wednesday during a telephone interview on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.
“We just want Nigerians to pray for us, we have worked hard and we want Nigerians to support us with their goodwill,” he said.
According to Ibitoye, the national team is confident of making the nation proud based on its level of preparation.
He added, “This team will make them (Nigerians) proud and everything will be good. I am absolutely sure of that.”
The Eagles media officer made the plea two days after the team departed their base at the Avita Resort in Bad Tatzmannsdorf, Austria, to Russia for the World Cup tournament – Nigeria’s sixth appearance.
