What I did with Super Eagles in Cameroon before they beat Egypt: APC governor reveals, shares photos
Meanwhile, before the Nigerian national team, Super Eagles took on the Pharaohs of Egypt on Tuesday, January 11, in the ongoing AFCON 2022 tournament, they got a visit in Cameroon from Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu and his delegates.
Via his Instagram page on Tuesday, Governor Sanwo-Olu said he was with the team before the match to pray with and encourage the players.
Sanwo-Olu said he relayed to the team the best wishes and goodwill of Lagosians and inspired them to have a great start at the competition.
The Lagos governor stated:
"We paid our team, the Super Eagles a quick visit before their match to pray with them.
"I also gave them a pep talk and best wishes from Lagosians. I let them know we’re in high spirits just like they are, and looking forward to a great start at the competition."
Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho's superb strike sealed victory for the Super Eagles against a very lethargic Egyptian side as Nigeria opened its AFCON 2021 on a winning note.
Nigeria’s interim coach Augustine Eguavoen named a very attacking lineup as Moses Simon, Taiwo Awoniyi, and Kelechi Iheanacho were preferred in attack with Joe Aribo, Wilfred Ndidi bossing the midfield.
