The Sports Writers Association of Nigeria (SWAN) has called on support and best wishes for the Super Eagles of Nigeria ahead of their World Cup group match against Iceland which comes up today.
The call was made by the National President of SWAN Mr. Honour Sirawoo, who spoke with Sport Intelligence (www.sportintelligencemag.com) from Russia.
Sirawoo in his message to Sport Intelligence said: “We expect victory from the Super Eagles, and wish them well as they file out against Iceland today”.
The national president also noted that victory against Iceland is key to keep the team’s hope of qualifying for the round of 16 alive, and nothing less than that is expected from the team.
Super Eagles face Iceland today following a poor result recorded by Argentina in their 3-0 loss to Croatia yesterday, and a win against Iceland could keep the team’s chances alive ahead of their final group match when they meet Argentina.
