President Goodluck Jonathan has promised that he will be part of the live audience cheering on the Super Eagles in Brazil, if they qualify for the quarter-finals of the World Cup – that is, if Nigeria wins the match against France in the Round of 16 tomorrow Monday June 30th, Goodluck Jonathan will travel to Brazil to watch their next match.
Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo, revealed this to KickoffNigeria.
According to Yobo: “He assured us when he called that he’s behind us and if we beat France and qualify for the quarter-final, he will come and visit us and watch the next game. That’s a very big motivation for us to know that the president will come and visit us.
“It’s better than money and we are determined to go there and fight and give our best. It’s a morale booster,” he said.
The Super Eagles lost 3-2 to a star-studded Argentina team but managed to qualify for the World Cup Second Round on points.
