Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu has called on Nigerians to continue to believe in the Super Eagles despite their 2-0 loss against Croatia in Saturday’s World Cup opening Group D fixture.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr Uche Anichukwu, on Sunday in Abuja, he said that losing to Croatia wasn’t the end for the team because he’s confident Nigeria would qualify.
“Nigeria is in a tight corner after the loss to Croatia.
“However, I am sure that the players and coaching crew have picked some lessons.
“The technical crew might have to rethink the team’s formation.
“Maybe, also, we stand to gain more from the players in their natural wings.
“I am an optimist. It is not over yet for the Super Eagles in Russia, especially given their traditional resilient spirit.
“I have no doubt also that they understand that they bear the expectations and hopes of over 180 million people on their shoulders.
“But, we owe them total support and prayers,” he said.
