President Buhari made this known in a three paragraph statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Chief Femi Adesina said he “recognises the hardwork, team spirit and sportsmanship the boys have exhibited in the tournament, which are good signs for a team destined to excel.”

He said with yet more hurdles to scale before lifting the diadem, the team and their handlers should remain focused and determined, assuring them of the fervent prayers and support of all Nigerians.
