The Nigerian government has once again showed how supportive they are for the Super Eagles to beat Argentina in Group F and get a qualification to the next round. The latest being the president will give an inspirational message to the team before they face Argentina on Wednesday.

Earlier yesterday, Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) board member, Emeka Inyama, confirmed that Jonathan was going to personally speak with the players as a way to motivate them against Argentina who struggled to gain maximum points from Iran last Wednesday.

Meanwhile, a businessman who prefers to remain anonymous has promised to pay N10million for every goal Eagles score against Argentina tomorrow.

Inyama further revealed that  the businessman has even promised to provide the cash here in  Brazil before Eagles move to the next  stage of the tournament.

Meanwhile, It was a smooth one hour, thirty minutes flight for the Super Eagles and its officials from Campinas yesterday to Porto Alegre, as the team gears up for tomorrow’s group decider against former World Champions, Argentina.

On the flight with the Eagles was the Vice President of the NFF, Mike Okeke Umeh, House of Reps members led by Vice Chairman, House Committee on Sports, Alhaja Ayo Omidiran, Coach Stephen Keshi and his crew and all the 23 players registered for the tournament.

The team is quartered at the Holiday Inn Hotel, about 10minutes drive from the airport and the good news for the team is that defence trojan, Godfrey Itama Oboabona, will be back in training yesterday afternoon. “I am ready to resume training today and the medics have given me a clean bill,” Oboabona said smiling as the team alighted from the TAM flight that brought them from Campinas.

The team departed for training immediately it settled down at about 2:15pm local time, which is 6:15 in Nigeria, with team skipper, Joseph Yobo, saying he prefers a win tomorrow  to his much advertised attainment of a 100 caps if featured in the match against Argentina.

“It’s good news that I will reach that milestone but what is uppermost in my mind is for the team to win and for us to advance to the next stage. The rest will be a bonus”, he said late yesterday.
