The President expressed particular delight at the confidence, discipline, team-work and indomitable spirit displayed by the young Nigerian players, said a presidency statement minutes after the game.
Buhari urged the Eagles not to limit themselves but sustain the current winning momentum by going all out against their last group opponent, Argentina, next week.
According to him, “I am confident that if our players believe in themselves, they can qualify out of their difficult group and even go very far in the tournament. With determination, nothing is impossible.”
The President also urged all Nigerians to continue to rally round the Nigerian ambassadors with their prayers and other forms of support.
