Globacom has tasked the Flying Eagles to welcome President Muhammadu Buhari with theFIFA U-20 World Cup trophy as the tournament kicked off in New Zealand on Saturday.

The Flying Eagles played Brazil in the opening Group E game earlier this morning and will play Korea DPR on June 4 before concluding the group matches against Hungary on June 7.

“We have followed the Flying Eagles’ preparation for the World Cup and are convinced that the team will live up to the expectation of Nigerians,” the statement said.

It also advised Flying Eagles to work hard and win the trophy in order to surpass the silver medals won by the 1989 and 2005 sets in Saudi Arabia and Holland respectively.

“We believe that the team has quality players and the fact that they have been playing together from their Golden Eaglets days will help the team to conquer all oppositions.

“This perhaps is the best opportunity for Nigeria to win the trophy and this is the best squad to break that jinx. We believe that the current Flying Eagles have all it takes at this tournament to make history.

We therefore call on all Nigerians to continue to pray for the team to succeed,” the statement concluded.
