Eagles thank President Jonathan

19 November 2013, 16:42

Lagos - The Super Eagles have expressed their appreciation to President Goodluck Jonathan for his support for the team since the start of the year.

The team said that President Jonathan has been their number one supporter in the run-up to a splendid display at the Nations Cup in South Africa in and a smooth run through the World Cup qualifiers.

Speaking through stand-in skipper Vincent Enyeama, the team also heaped praises on the Aminu Maigari-led Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), whose leadership and management has been of an exceptional standard.

They did not leave out the National Sports Commission leadership of Hon. Bolaji Abdulahi, which Enyeama noted has been directing the NFF in the right direction.

Speaking in London, the team noted that but for the support of relevant government agencies starting from the President, the team would not have gone far in qualifying.

He then reminded Jonathan and Senate President David Mark of their promise to boost the team after qualification for the World Cup.

“We know that they are very busy officials who will in no time make good of their promise to ensure that the team is boosted and well prepared for the World Cup in Brazil next year.

"Mr. President has been visiting our preparatory sessions and the Senate President has been our avid supporter, which is why we must remain focused to keep doing the nation proud”.
