"We want to assure Nigerians that we will definitely make good our promise of delivering the ticket for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation".

Latest addition to the Super Eagles Ola Aina has spoken about representing Nigeria after spells with the English age grade teams.

He said: "When they were presented to the ministry on Tuesday, we sought the approval of Mr. President which he graciously approved to receive them on Wednesday, and indeed they were received in council and having emerged as champions they are qualified for the competition in Spain in 2019". The Super Eagles will want to maintain their number one spot in Group B as their opponents are now on the back foot due to their recent poor form.

The Ccameroonian team captain, Benjamin Moukandjo, said that the team was focused and had prepared hard for the match.
