As the Nigeria’s Super Eagles square up with their Swaziland counterparts in the ongoing World Cup Qualifier, the chairman of Rivers State chapter of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Felix Obuah wants the Nigerian side to go all out to chinch the three points at stake by beating the visiting Swazi side.

Welcoming the coach Sunday Oliseh-led Super Eagles to the Garden-City of Port Harcourt, venue of the international engagement, the State PDP boss through a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Jerry Needam said the Super Eagles should take advantage of the prevailing peaceful atmosphere and face-lift given to infrastructural and social facilities in the State as well as the unrivalled enthusiasm of Rivers people in football to win the match and improve their chances of making it to the 2016 World Cup fiesta.

Obuah recalled that Port Harcourt has a history of hosting international football matches which had brought both victories and fame to the country and expressed optimism that today’s (Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2015) version will also end in favour of the Nigerian side.

He enjoined all sports lovers in the State and indeed, all Rivers people to turn out en-mass and oblige the Super Eagles their maximum support and prayers for a resounding victory over the visiting Southern African Country.

Meanwhile, football enthusiasts are upbeat for the match with many urging the Super Eagles to emulate the U-17 junior world cup champions in Chile 2015 who engaged every opponent in the tournament in an attacking football.

Super Eagles played a barren draw in Swaziland on Friday and will need a clear victory to advance to the next stage of the world cup qualifier. Coach Sunday Oliseh is yet to make a convincing victory in a competitive match since he became the gaffe of the national senior team some months ago.
