“It is our duty to mobilize and also to inform the Nigeria community of the arrival of the team, and the match date and time. We have been doing that. Since we got the notice from the NFF, we have started through the informal method in informing fellow Nigerians here to come out and cheer the team to victory.

“This is not the first time Nigerians in Dakar would be hosting a National Team. We did that during the African Youth Championship and during the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations, and we all are aware of the results. We went back to Nigeria with the trophies. So, Dakar has always been a victory ground for Nigeria. We are assuring everyone back home that this won’t be an exception.
