It must have been a great relief for the Nigerian sports minister, Sunday Dare, as he soaked the excitement of Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets on Saturday night.
He was reportedly watched the match on television in his house at Ibadan, Oyo State, South West Nigeria.
In a tweet he posted after the match, the minister wrote: “I was on my feet almost throughout the game.
“I watched these boys train in Abuja and I knew they were a bunch of good players. We move on with lessons learnt. I am confident they will get better and stronger. We just saw the Nigerian football spirit back on !
