Jonathan hails Super Eagles stunning victory

26 January 2014, 07:24

Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan has congratulated the senior men's national team for their exhilarating victory over Morocco in the ongoing ongoing African Nations Championship.

The Super Eagles recorded arguably the greatest comeback in Confederation of African Football (CAF) competitions to book a berth in the semifinals of the tournament held in South Africa.

The team went to the break trailing 3-0 but rallied back to win 4-3 in extra time.

“President Jonathan applauds the indomitable spirit with which the Super Eagles fought back from being three goals down to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat and win a most memorable victory with almost the last kick of the match,” Reuben Abati, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, stated from Abuja.

Abati said the President commended the courage, patriotism, determination and dedication to national service exhibited by the Super Eagles today to all other Nigerians.

He urged the team to maintain their exemplary commitment to national duty until ultimate victory in the continental soccer championship for home-based players is achieved.

“President Jonathan assures the team and its handlers that they will continue to receive the fullest possible support from the Federal Government and all Nigerians as they strive to add the African Nations Championship trophy to the African Nations Cup which Nigeria won last year,” he added. - CAJ News
