Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo on Tuesday visited the Super Eagles and Super Falcons during their training sessions at the National Stadium, Abuja.
The Falcons are preparing for the Women’s Africa Cup of Nations scheduled for Cameroon from November 19 to December 3. The Eagles are preparing for Saturday’s Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier against Algeria in Uyo.
“I commend you for your patriotism and commitment to the cause of your fatherland. By going to Zambia to defeat them on their own ground for the first time, you have shown your determination to conquer your group and qualify for the World Cup,” the VP said.

“I want to assure you that the government and people of Nigeria are behind you in your quest to qualify for the World Cup. I believe that you will certainly pick the ticket from your group to make it to the World Cup finals.”
Eagles captain Mikel Obi praised Osinbajo for his visit, saying Nigeria had one of the youngest teams in Africa.
Osinbajo told the Falcons, “I am happy that you girls are the reigning African champions, and I believe you will go to Cameroon and retain your trophy. The whole nation is behind you. You must start by beating Mali and then going all the way so as to bring the Cup back to Nigeria.”
