AS Roma to support Super Eagles at the World Cup


Italian football giants AS Roma will be backing Nigeria’s Super Eagles when the World Cup starts on June 15 in Russia.

“Good luck to the squad at the @FIFAWorldCup in Russia,” the club said on its English Twitter page during the week.

“Italy won’t be there, so #ASRoma will be supporting our own players and the #SuperEagles – #ForzaSuperEagles.”

The Italian club which was knocked out of the UEFA Champions League in the semis by Liverpool have two Nigerian players on their payroll.


However, both Nura Abdullahi and Umar Sadiq will not be featuring for the Super Eagles at the Mundial.

Roma’s romance with Nigeria is not limited to the coming World Cup: the club also put up a nostalgic post about Nigeria’s Dream Team successful campaign at the Olympics in Atlanta in 1996. It also tweeted the position of the Super Eagles on the latest FIFA ranking, accompanying the message with a picture of Nigerian football fans.
