The sister of Real Madrid star David Alaba, Rose May Alaba, has congratulated the Super Eagles following their 3-1 win against Sudan on Saturday at the 2021 AFCON in Cameroon.

The Eagles made it two wins after two group games and qualified for the round of 16.

Samuel Chukwueze, Taiwo Awoniyi and Moses Simon were on target, as the three-time African champions recorded their first win against Sudan at AFCON since the 1976 edition.

    God bless Nigeria, God bless super eagles, God bless eguaevon.

  • CSN with some of their type of news. How does this news hold water I don’t know, I even thought it was the main Alab.

  • @Knet,when you consider how much of Nigeria image have been damaged in many foreign country and how numerous Nigerian in diaspora does not want to be identify with their father’s land you will know that a new like is highly welcome.

    Just one good platform that makes people to hold their heads up beat their chest and open their mouth to say am a true Nja is sport, football in particular.

    So if we are reading the confirmation of the above view in a news like, then we are to promote this game very. There is no new about eagles now with their sterling performance that doesn’t hold water.

    God bless @Yinkus you for this reply. No more argument! Football is more than sport, far more powerful than you think. It’s the only activity where no one ask which player comes from where. Iheanacho from Owerei will score in Cameroon, and the Alhaji in Kaduna will jump up to celebrate. A game that will make even Boko Haram members down their weapons for a moment and see how “their guys” are doing. It’s good CSN reports stuffs like this to let the NFF know that when SEs don’t play well, Nigerians everywhere , anywhere are affected.

    She made out time to watch the SE, just like he would watch his brother play for Real Madrid. That makes a lot sense in many respect for those who can reason.

    To think David Alaba could have played for Nigeria, but was stopped because of egunje.
    The DAVID ALABA law is needed. Any official caught collecting bribes during player recruitment or for any other reason should be punished to the fullest extent our law allows!

    • Spot on @pompei, more reason why we need to find out what is fishy in the Ademola Lookman, ejaria, Olise, et al., cases now!!!

      Amaju Picmilk led NFF, you owe us accountability. Fans are Worried!!!
