President Buhari has showered encomiums on the Super Eagles of Nigeria following their impressive win over Egypt on Tuesday.
Iheanacho’s strike was the difference between Nigeria and Egypt in Garoua in the opening match of Group D.
“President Muhammadu Buhari commends the Super Eagles of Nigeria for an impressive start at the ongoing 33rd Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon, defeating a formidable opponent, Egypt 1-0, in their group stage encounter,” reads a press statement signed by President Buhari’s Special Adviser Media and Publicity, Mr. Femi Adesina, made available to journalists on Wednesday.
“The President urges the Augustine Eguavoen-led team and the coaching staff to keep their eyes on the ball, remain good ambassadors on and off the field, and give loyal fans and all Nigerians more exciting moments to celebrate.
The Super Eagles will seek to continue their winning start against Sudan on Saturday.
