“Hard-fought victory, but well deserving. We won because of the individual qualities of our players and especially the quality of that final ball laid to Lookman who is likely to emerge the player of the tournament.”

What the Supper Eagles of Nigeria players just did on the pitch right now is called "Nationalism & Patriotism" no religion or Ethnic sentiments. I pray our Politicians will learn from them. Nigerians are happy so also we supposed to be happy with our leaders.
