Fear of Eagles’ early exit grips Supporters Club boss
President of Nigeria Eagles Supporters Club, Vincent Okumagba, says he is not sure the Super Eagles will be able to make it from the group stage going by the way they approached the first game against Croatia.
“As of now, I don’t even know if the team can still qualify from the group. We don’t have any reason losing that game to Croatia. Now, people are rating Iceland higher than Croatia. We have registered our displeasure to the players and their handlers. I personally flew about 30 of our members to the match venue against Croatia. All that money is wasted. I didn’t envisaged that Croatia would beat us in that match.
“Now, more of our members have come in and I hope the players will leave up to their responsibility in Friday match against Iceland. But it will be very bad if we crash out at the group stage considering the effort Nigerians put into the World Cup campaign. But I am still hopeful we will qualify.
“With more of our supporters on ground now, the Eagles will not lack support on Friday. We are ready to do our part. I hope the players won’t disappoint Nigerians,” Okumagba stated.
