Lagerback recalls memories of 2010 World Cup with Super Eagles


Former Super Eagles coach, Lars Lagerback, has sent his goodwill message to the team ahead of the World Cup tournament, expressing how fondly he holds the memories he had during his time with the team.

He enjoined the team to prepare well for a very good outing in Russia.

The 69-year old who is currently in charge of the Norwegian national team took Nigeria to the 2010 FIFA World Cup edition where they failed to win any game for the second time since her 1994 debut, losing their first two games to Argentina and Greece before drawing with South Korea to crash out in the first round.

“I wish Nigeria all the best in the World Cup coming up in Russia. I have so much good memories from my time with the Nigerian national team and all the friends I had in Nigeria,’’  he said in a 44-second clip.

“So I hope you prepare well and I really look forward to watching them play in Russia even though I would be watching on TV from Sweden.’’
