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

A statement issued by Special Adviser to the President (Media and Publicity), in Abuja on Friday, said the President expressed particular delight at the confidence, discipline, team-work and indomitable spirit displayed by the young Nigerian players.

He 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 urged all Nigerians to continue to rally round the Nigerian ambassadors with their prayers and other forms of support.
