We will cheer Super Eagles to victory – Okumagba




By Tunji Faleye

Members of the Nigerian Football Supporters’ Club, NFSC, have stormed Uyo, Akwa Ibom State capital in their full capacity to cheer Super Eagles to victory over Bafana Bafana of South Africa.


Speaking to Nigerian Newslive before his departure to Uyo, Chairman of the club, Prince Vincent Okumagba says, our main objective is to cheer Eagles to victory in their 2018 African Cup of Nations qualifiers against South Africa on Saturday June 10.


“We do not have any other assignment in Uyo than to make Eagles record 100 per cent success against the South Africans.


“We are indeed ready and we will sing right from the blast of the whistle to the end of the 90th minute.”


It will be recalled that Okumagba had promised that he would mobilise more than one thousand supporters to Uyo to cheer Eagles to victory.
