Qatar 2022 WCQ: Sports Minister Hails Super Eagles’ Away Win Over Cape Verde

Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has showered praises on the Super Eagles for picking their second consecutive win of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

The Super Eages beat their hosts Cape Verde 2-1 on Tuesday to make it two wins in two games and go three points clear at the top of Qatar 2022 African qualifying Group C ahead of Liberia, Central African Republic and Cape Verde.

“Congratulations to Nigeria, congratulations to all Nigerians and the Super Eagles. The team has made us proud once again,” Dare said.

He also commended the Nigeria Football Federation(NFF) for ensuring that the team travelled in comfort.

“I salute everyone for the roles they played. The NFF ensured the team travelled in comfort and the coaches had to overcome a lot of setbacks owing to the Covid 19.

“In the game, we had to dress only nineteen players as against the twenty three allowed by FIFA for World Cup qualifiers. Added to this, we had to fight from a goal down to snatch all three points at stake.

“Inspite of this victory I will like to charge everyone that the journey to Qatar 2022 is still a long one. We must keep fighting and working hard until the World Cup ticket is firmly in our hands.” Dare concluded.

    Do your own part, too, Oga Minister. It seems you are working against the SE by allowing emotions to blind you, making you to take games to poor stadia. We MUST RETURN TO UYO.
