Less than 15 minutes after the final whistle was blown, signalling the end of the round of 16 encounter between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon in Egypt, Vice President of Nigeria at the beginning of the Fourth Republic Atiku Abubakar sent a message of congratulations to the Eagles.
The Super Eagles defeated their Cameroonian counterparts by 3 goals to 2 in an exciting and tension soaked encounter.
With this victory, the Eagles would next face the Egypt or South Africs in the quarterfinals.
The message from Atiku came via his Official Twitter handle on Saturday.
“A delightful evening of quality and resilient football. Congratulations @NGSuperEagles on your quarterfinal qualification. We are proud of you,” the 2019 Presidential Aspirant under the umbrella of PDP commented via Twitter.
