President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated Nigeria’s Super Eagles on their Friday’s impressive win over the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

The Super Eagles defeated the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon 4-0 in a 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo.

The goals were scored by Odion Ighalo, Mikel Obi, Victor Moses and Kelechi Iheanacho.

The President, in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, joined millions of football-loving Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora in applauding the senior men’s football team.

Buhari lauded the Super Eagles for their disciplined, skillful and entertaining display against the defending African champions.

The president noted that with the exhilarating victory, Nigeria was on the verge of qualifying for the World Cup in Russia 2018.

He, therefore, urged the players to sustain the momentum as they approach the crucial second leg of the tie in Yaounde, on Monday.

The President enjoined Nigerians who always see “football as a unifying platform, to continue to pray and support the team to guarantee victory next week and make qualification doubly sure’’.

He also commended the Akwa Ibom government for its continued support and provision of excellent hosting facilities.
