Nigeria’s ambassador to Portugal, Alex Kefas has praised the Super Eagles despite the team’s 4-0 defeat to the Selecao on Thursday night.

Kefas visited the players after the game and was joined by the
Nigerian ambassador to Guinea Bissau and Nigeria’s ambassador to the Czech Republic.
“I’m happy that you are here, even though the outcome of the game was disappointing. I believe this is just the beginning of our relationship with the Nigeria Football Federation,”Kefas stated.
“It was a friendly game and the Super Eagles have done well over the years. It was their first game against Portugal and the first time they will be playing here.
“I see this as a sign of friendship between us and the Portuguese national team.
“Aside from the Super Eagles coming here to train a couple of times in the past, this is the first time we are seeing the team in action here.
“I observed some of you were devasted when you came in, but that’s football. You lost today, but it is also important to concentrate on the future.
“We will keep on supporting you and the NFF as well as our head coach, Jose Peseiro.”Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
