“We are soaring to the finals, but one day at a time. We know the game will be tricky, Tunisia is like the British weather, today they are shitty, the next second, they are flying. So we have to win it,” he said.

Meanwhile, Emmanuel Adebayor stated in a short viral video, “originally, my parents are from Nigeria, and I am a Nigerian, so you guys have to win for me. If you don’t want to win for yourself, it is your problem, but win for me. Super Eagles, we need to celebrate, we need to party, we need to dance.”
