Updated: February 24, 2021

Speaker of the Nigerian House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, has hailed the Super Eagles over their win over IceLand in the ongoing World Cup mundial in Russia.

Nigeria beat Iceland 2-0. The victory has given Africa’s most populous nation another opportunity to advance to the second round of the World Cup.

The two goals came from Ahmed Musa in the second half. The 26-year-old became the first Nigerian to score in two World Cups.

Dogara said with this win, the national team has put smiles once more on the faces of Nigerians after their disappointing outing against Croatia.

While urging them to maintain the fire displayed by the team in the second half of the game, he assured them of the support of Nigerians across the globe.

“Nigerians were full of expectation of victory and did not give up on you after the initial disappointment and you delivered!

“I urge you to now prove why you are called the Super Eagles’ in your next game against Argentina. Do us proud!,” he charged.
