Obiano Hails Super Eagles on Victory over Iceland .


 

Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has congratulated the Super Eagles for beating the national team of Iceland in their Group D World Cup match yesterday.

Governor Obiano described the national team’s win as well deserved and a product of hard work, determination and team spirit.

He described the win as an important victory coming against the setback suffered in the opening match against Croatia and the increasing group qualification stakes. 

Said he: "It was a game in which the players displayed individual talent, tactical skills, resilience and group focus. Their composure is particularly commendable in the light of the difficult first half which was capable of lowering morale."

Governor Obiano noted that the vastly improved performance of the Super Eagles in the second half made all the difference. From being seen as a side that could be taken for granted, the opposing team soon began to search for containment measures.  

The governor hailed the Nigerian team for rising to the occasion in difficult circumstances and making not just Nigerians but the African continent as a whole, proud.

He expressed the hope that with the psychological boost of this victory, the team would continue to improve with every subsequent match. The Governor reminded the team that Nigerians were looking forward to record the best outing yet in the World Cup since 1994 and there could be no better time to achieve this than now.

Governor Obiano urged the national team to remain conscious of Nigeria’s rating as a football power in Africa and go the extra mile in next match to announce Nigeria’s new standing on the international scene.
