President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the Super Eagles of Nigeria on their victory on Friday over the national team of Iceland in their second match at the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The President expresses particular delight at the confidence, discipline, team-work and indomitable spirit displayed by the young Nigerian players.

President Buhari urged them not to limit themselves but sustain the current winning momentum by going all out against their last group opponent, Argentina, next week.

According to him: “I am confident that if our players believe in themselves, they can qualify out of their difficult group and even go very far in the tournament,” adding that “with determination, nothing is impossible.”

The President urges all Nigerians to continue to rally round the Nigerian ambassadors with their prayers and other forms of support.

Nigeria defeated Iceland by two goals to nil in the match, with Ahmed Musa scoring both goals in the second half of the match.
