The Rebuild Nigeria Initiative, an NGO has expressed its delights with the current form of the Nigeria’s Super Eagles.
Coordinator of the group, Pastor Magnus Leo, in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja, said that the commitment of the Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung was paying off.
Super Eagles recently walloped Cameroon Lions 4-0 at home and were forced to 1-1 draw in Yaounde.
The outcome of the matches had further boosted Nigeria’s chances of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup in Russia
Leo said the sports minister had on August 30, vowed to deliver the World Cup ticket.
“The minister had given Nigerians great assurance that the Supper Eagles will qualify for 2018 world cup and that is playing out as the Super Eagles of Nigeria showed up superb performances at the qualifiers both in Uyo and Yaoundé.
“This has given hope to Nigerians that the world cup ticket is as good as delivered as promised.
“Nigeria has one home game and one away game in the world cup qualifiers series and there is nothing to fear as eleven points is all that the team needed to qualify for the 2018 world cup,’’ he said.
Leo said he believed that with the motivation coming from the Minister of Sports and his ministry, the Super Eagles would be in Russia and creditably acquit themselves.
