Put Madagascar setback behind, Okumagba tells Eagles

By George Aluo
President of Super Eagles Supporters Club, Prince Vincent Okumagba has charged the Super Eagles to put behind the loss to Madagascar and forge ahead in the tournament.
Okumagba whose men are now in Egypt after the initial delay over visa said he is confident the Eagles would bounce back and make Nigerians happy as the tournament enters the knockout stages.
“Yes, Nigerians are not happy the way we lost to Madagascar, but the important thing right now is how the boys react to that setback. I urge them to put it behind them and come out smoking in the round of 16 game. I don’t think there is any team in the tournament that is not beatable. If they step up their game, they can beat whoever comes their way in the second round and forge ahead.”
Okumagba stressed that with a good number of his group already on ground in Egypt, the Eagles would get more support from the stands in the round of 16 tie.
“Some of my men arrived in Egypt on Monday and more would be storming Egypt before Saturday. We are going to propel the boys to action. By the grace of God, we would come out smiling on Saturday,” Okumagba said.
With the 2-0 loss to Madagascar on Sunday, the Eagles finished runners of Group B and would face the runners of Group F which has Cameroon, Ghana, Republic of Benin and Guinea Bissau.
