The 2018 FIFA World Cup is less than 100 days away, and ‘all eyes’ are on the Nigeria Senior men’s team as we move towards the competition. The Super Eagles are scheduled for a number of friendlies in preparation for the tournament, but as we have witnessed over time, lack of good moral support can also mean a downturn in the team’s overall performance.

Support across the globe

The Director-General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Otunba Olusegun Runsewe disclosed in an interview in Abuja on Thursday that the council will be mobilising a three million-man support across the globe for the Super Eagles for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
“We will soon open the window on a website, so that if you are supporting Super Eagles, you will key into it. You will be asked one or two questions – Who was the Super Eagles’ captain in 1972? Who was the team’s goal keeper in that year? – or other questions. If you answer correctly, you will then get a muffler and other cultural gift items from NCAC. Also, on the days the Super Eagles will be playing their matches, all supporters will wear various traditional attires and hold the country’s national flags. We will start it here in NCAC, we will go round the world, and yes we must build a cultural support for the supper eagles. — Runsewe
