As the Super Eagles of Nigeria look forward to their World Cup opening match against Croatia on Saturday, Rivers State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Felix Obuah has charged the Eagles to approach every match with a winning mentality.
In a press statement issued in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, Bro. Obuah said he is confident that Super Eagles would not disappoint Nigerians as he has fervently prayed to God to grant the Gernot Rohr’s boys a good outing.
Bro. Obuah advised the Eagles to put behind the disappointing outing which they had in their last two warm-up friendlies against England and the Czech Republic respectively, and approach all matches with the conviction that all things are possible with God.
His words: “I have prayed, just as I believe that millions of other Nigerians have also prayed for Super Eagles to come out victorious in their group, qualify for the next round; to the quarter finals and victory all the way!”.
“There are two basic truths which will play out for the Super Eagles in this World Cup. One, their opponents would see them as underdogs and take them for granted, but with God on their side, they will spring up surprises that will shock all those who have written them
“Secondly, Super Eagles have a history of rising to the occasion when they are least expected. They are known for their grit, doggedness and a fighting spirit”, he summed up.
Bro. Obuah who is President/Sole Sponsor of Go-Round Football Club of Omoku, a side plying its trade in the elite professional league, re-emphasized that football is a game where anything can happen, adding “That is why it is not mathematics which must follow the rules
of addition, subtraction, multiplication, etc”.
The State PDP Chairman who is also the Sole Administrator of Rivers State Waste Management Agency (RIWAMA) also charged Nigerians not to relent in their prayers for the Super Eagles even as he urged
supporters and Nigerians living in Russia to come all out and cheer the boys to victory.
