Nwabuoku said the team will reciprocate the kind gesture by putting up a good performance when the World Cup kicks off June 06.

“From the day I joined the team from my base everything has been going on as planned.

“I want to, on behalf of my teammates, thank the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for keeping to its promises to prepare us very well for the competition.

“We are really grateful and we want to promise that we will not let them down as we hope for a good outing.

“Since we came here, the training sessions have been going on well and we have not missed any training because of the proper organisation of things.

“We also need the supports and prayers of Nigerians to spur us to do more at the World Cup,” said the former Rivers Angels playmaker.

Falcons has continued with its training sessions since arriving Toronto for a training tour and may engage the Canadian side on Monday in one of the build-up matches.

The African champions will open its title account against the Scandinavian giants, Sweden, on June 8 in Winnipeg before confronting other Group D opponents, Australia and USA on June 12 and 16 respectively.
