‘This victory means we enter the competition in the best possible way, but we know it will be a difficult match against Japan.”And on the kind of support is team are getting following the win, he said:

“I guarantee the whole of Africa is supporting us. I get phone calls from everywhere. We are proud to represent Africa.”

    It was no big deal the Senegalese defeated the Polish National team. What’s the big deal in being able to defeat THE ONLY TEAM THE SUPER EAGLES MANAGED TO BEAT DURING THEIR FRIENDLY GAMES?
