“I praise you for your victory against Korea Rebuild today. It is also Africa’s first win at the World Cup in France and a perfect gift to mark Democracy Day in Nigeria.
“Your determination and resilience has earned Nigeria a positive place in the group standing, giving you renewed hope to face France in your next match on Monday. Nigerians are praying for you and we will continue to support you to victory”.Dalung stated in a statement.
