Buhari receives World Cup trophy, hosts Eagles

President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday, March 7 assured the Super Eagles of the needed support to win the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation, while receiving the FIFA World Cup trophy at the State House in Abuja.

Former France global and World Cup-winning midfielder, Christian Karembeu believes the Super Eagles of Nigeria must play in a insane manner if they are to become the first country outside the continent of Europe and South America to lift the FIFA World Cup.

The trophy, on a tour of 91 cities in 51 countries across six continents before the finals, touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at 11am yesterday.

Sports minister Solomon Dalung and the NFF president Amaju Pinnick will have the first view of the trophy on the aircraft before it leaves the airport.

Amazon says the weird laughing this is a bug where Alexa mistakenly hears " Alexa , laugh" when people are talking. The laugh doesn't seem to be triggered by anything, and it sounds creepy.

President Buhari described football as a platform for economic development, saying it is a huge source of empowerment to the teeming Nigerian youths.

The ceremony which was held at the State House, also saw the President host the Super Eagles Team B, who won the Silver medal in the just concluded African Cup of Nations (CHAN) and the Bobsleigh Winter Olympic Team.

In the past weeks, Nigerians have been winning tickets to see the coveted trophy live.

With Nigeria's Super Eagles having qualified to participate in the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Nigerians have great expectations and the showcase of the World Cup in Abuja and Lagos is building up fans' excitement ahead of this year's FIFA World Cup tournament - in which Coca-Cola is a favorite.
