But Bature who has featured for COD United in his youthful career says Nigerians should support the team.

“Support is key for soccer and I am calling on all Nigerians to support the team at the Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium to gear them towards victory,” Bature told News24 on Monday.

“All the players in camp now are not there just for the fun of it, they are there because they want to do something for the nation.”

“I am a player and I know what support means.”
