…Prays they lift the cup on Sunday

A former member of the Nigerian Senate, Senator Ifeanyi Godwin Araraume, has said the Super Eagles of Nigeria have so far demonstrated patriotism on the field of play since the start of the tournament

He therefore commended them for their victory over Bafana Bafana of South Africa in their Wednesday’s AFCON semi-finals encounter.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria defeated South Africa 4-2 on penalties.

Araraume said; “I commend the team spirit, doggedness, wit and grit that are evident in the character of the team and I hope they will double down on their campaign to win the AFCON trophy on Sunday against the hosts, Cote D’Ivoire”.

He also said that the Super Eagles must approach the final game as if they had not beaten Cote D’Ivoire in the group stage of the tournament.

According to him; “Knowing full well that the hosts will be playing before the home crowd and desirous of a sweet revenge, the onus lies on the Super Eagles to ensure they are technically more balanced than their opponents in all departments of the game and ensure they nick an early goal which they must defend while looking for more scoring chances to increase the goal tally”.
