Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria had said, ahead of Tuesday match between Nigeria and Argentina at the ongoing World Cup 2018 in Russia, that no matter what the outcome of the match would be the Super Eagles players remain a source of pride for the country.
This was the comment of Vice President of the country, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, which he posted on his twitter handle on Tuesday.
Osinbajo said in the tweet: “Today in Ibadan, someone asked me my thoughts on the Nigeria vs Argentina game. My response was simple. By God’s grace, victory will be ours but no matter the outcome, we are proud of these young men and what they represent to us as a nation.”
The Nigerian team, despite their good performance, lost to the South American nation’s team in a critical football struggle the team’s captain, Messi, has described as a “very difficult one”.
