Senate seeks divine intervention for troubled Eagles
from AUGUSTINE OSAYANDE in Abuja, Nigeria
ABUJA – SENATE President, David Mark, has asked his colleagues in the National Assembly to pray for the senior men’s football national ahead of their do-or-die match against Sudan.
The shell-shocked Super Eagles, the defending Africa Cup of Nations champions, are facing elimination from the tournament at the qualifying stage following a disastrous spell.
They are bottom of their group with a single point from a possible nine in three matches.
“There is nothing prayer cannot do. Let us pray for them to win their match,” said Mark.
He said a victory against Sudan later on Wednesday would erase the bitter experience of their previous loss, a 1-0 setback in Khartoum.
“Their sweet victory in the match will remove the bitter taste of the previous game,” Mark added.
Only a few months ago, the Super Eagles were the toast of the nation after qualifying for the knockout stages of the World Cup in Brazil.
Meanwhile, Mark congratulated the women’s senior team for their convincing victory over Zambia in the African Women’s Championships in Namibia.
