FOOTBALL enthusiasts must be thrilled that the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) has organised high quality friendly matches for the Super Eagles ahead of the big game between Nigeria and the reigning African champions, the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.
The friendly matches will put the Eagles in a great shape mentally for the match against Cameroon, a team that was given little or no chance at the last AFCON championship but which nevertheless went on to shock pundits.
The Eagles must invoke the spirit of Tunisia 94 and USA 94 and do Nigeria proud. They should obtain and watch videos of the games played by the Eagles’ team that was then ranked fifth in the world.
We cannot afford to miss out on the global stage this time around. Even FIFA knows that Nigeria always brings elegance to the global championship.
