The Youth and Sports Minister, Sunday Dare has commended the Nigerian U-23 National Team ( Olympic Champions) for walloping the Sudanese national team 5-0 at the Stephen Keshi Stadium, Asaba Delta State, thereby qualifying for the African U-23 AFCON tournament slated for Egypt, November this year.
Mr Sunday Dare hailed the Team’s stellar performance and that this is only possible by our acclaimed Nigerian spirit of doggedness and resilience to succeed in our endeavors.
Overcoming the Sudanese by a 5-0 goal margin, according to Dare, makes a resonating statement of the qualities our Olympic Champions are made of- purposeful teamwork, astute display of Skills and clinical finishing on the field of play.
While commending the efforts of our players to clinch the ticket to play in the U-23 AFCON tournament in Egypt later this year and represent Africa in Tokyo Olympics 2020, the Hon. Minister on behalf of President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, wish the U-23 EAGLES best of luck in their next continental and intercontinental matches !!
Mr. Ramon Balogun.
