Super Eagles will get total support to beat Algeria in next month’s World Cup qualifier in Uyo because Nigeria will qualify for Russia 2018, according to the chairman of the supporters club.
“Nigeria must qualify for the World Cup and for that, the 12th man must be united. Peace has returned to the supporters club and we are happy for that,” declared supporters’ club boss Vincent Okumagba, who has personally sponsored the country’s fans’ club.
“We did not go to Zambia because of the wranglings in the supporters club so as not to distract the team.
“Nigeria will be at Russia 2018 and so they will get total support from us to achieve that. We plan that at least 500 registered supporters will be in Uyo to cheer the Eagles to victory.
“We will energise the players for them to go and do Nigeria proud.”
Elections of new leaders of the supporters club has been fixed for December 10 and Okumagba said he is confident of victory.
“I hope to return as national chairman with a landslide victory when we do the elections because I have something to offer after 20 years in the club,” he said.
