ABUJA – Senate President David Mark, the leader of the Federal Government delegation to the World Cup in Brazil, on Tuesday, urged the Super Eagles to step up their game against Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Mark, who was reacting to the Super Eagles goalless draw against Iran, said that although Nigerian had tried, the team needed to improve on its next matches.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr Kola Ologbondiyan, Mark said every team was important and every match must be taken seriously.
“The Super Eagles must therefore bring their resilience and the indomitable spirit of Nigeria to bear and deliver goals to qualify for the next stage of the competition.
“Nigerians are eagerly waiting for an improved game in your next match, the national image and pride is at stake and you cannot afford to let our people down,’’ the statement quoted him as saying.
It said the senate president enjoined the Super Eagles to put the draw with Iran behind them and move ahead.
NAN reports that the Super Eagles will tackle Bosnia-Herzegovina in their second Group F match scheduled for June 21. (NAN)
