BAUCHI State governor, Mallam Isa Yuguda, on Wednesday described Nigerian senior national team, the Super Eagles as “Super, Super, Super Eagles” shortly after watching the team mauled their Malian counterparts 4-1 in the semi-final of the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

This is even as the sport-loving Governor Yuguda said that from what he had seen from the team in the tournament, there is nothing stopping the boys from winning the African Cup of Nations.

An elated Yuguda, who watched the semi-final match in his office alongside other top Bauchi State government functionaries, declared that, “with the way these good ambassadors of Nigeria are playing in far away South Africa, the glory days of Nigeria football are here again, we are going to rule African football once again.”

The governor commended the resilient and fighting spirit of the players, coupled with the technical abilities of the technical team led by Coach Stephen Keshi, pointing out that with the two arms working together, the team would definitely brush aside any opposition, no matter how strong and stiff to ensure that the cup make a return to Nigeria.

He jokingly said, “We have a team that can stand the test of any other team in the world. I am convinced that the cup is gradually making a return to Nigeria after a very long time. This is because we have a lucky man as our President; he carries his Goodluck anywhere he goes.”

Governor Yuguda then urged the Eagles not to relent until the final match was won and their skipper lifts the cup to the admiration of the entire African nation and the world indeed considering that all attention of the world of football has been beamed on Africa for the AFCON.

He then promised to reschedule his official assignments in order to be in South Africa with President Goodluck Jonathan to cheer the team to victory during the final match on Sunday, February 10.
