Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, commended the Super Eagles of Nigeria for a spectacular start at the ongoing 33rd Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon for defeating a formidable opponent, the Pharaohs of Egypt 1-0, in their group stage encounter.
The governor described the victory of Eagles over Pharaohs of Egypt as a sweet victory, charging the Eagles should put their eyes on the ultimate victory which is lifting the trophy.
The Governor strongly believes, like millions of soccer aficionados in Nigeria, that the spectacular outing in Garoua, Cameroon is a preview of what to expect from the committed and patriotic team as they lock horns against other opponents in the tournament.
Bello charged the Augustine Eguavoen-led team and the technical staff to keep their eyes on the ball, remain good examples on and off the field, and give the diehard fans and all Nigerians more exhilarating moments to celebrate.
While praising the general performance of the team and the technical crew, Bello also commended the Super Eagles Defence for its solidity that remained impenetrable for the Egyptian strikers throughout the game.
He charged the team to soar like an eagle in order to write another glorious page in the soccer folklore for the country.
