Ex-Eagles coach wishes Nigeria well in Russia


Former Super Eagles handler Lars Lagerback has sent his goodwill message to Nigeria, urging them to do well ahead of the FIFA World Cup which begins in June.

The Swede, who is now in charge of the Norway national team guided the Eagles to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, where they crashed out in the group stage.

In a short video message posted on the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) Twitter handle, Lagerback relieved fond memories with the Eagles.

“Hi everybody in Nigeria. My name is Lars Lagerback, I have come to wish you all the best in the World Cup coming up in Russia. I have some good memories with the Nigerian National team and all the friends I got when I was in Nigeria. So I hope you prepare well, everything is going alright. I really look forward to seeing you playing in Russia even if I will be in Sweden watching from the TV,” he said.

The former Iceland coach also reached out to the team’s administrator, Dayo Enebi. “I equally want to send good luck to my old colleague, my then team secretary, Dayo Enebi. Keep going and i know you will make it. All the best.”
