Meanwhile, the Nigeria Football Supporters Club (NFSC), has applauded the Super Eagles for their monumental victory over Libya in both legs of their 2019 AFCON encounter.
The club’s national chairman, Samuel Ikpea, said, the national team put vibrant smiles on the faces of supporters amidst serious doubts as they drummed out the Mediterranean Knights.
“I commend their brilliant performance and the wonderful technical input in the team by the coaching crew. That indeed is a refreshing relief for us.
