Minister of Youth and Sports Development Solomon Dalung has congratulated Nigeria’s home-based Super Eagles for qualifying for the finals of the African Nations Championship (CHAN).
Dalung, who spoke with newsmen in New York, urged the team to ensure that they bring the trophy to Nigeria.
He said the team’s qualification, after edging Sudan 1-0 in the semi-final in Marrakech, was ‘historic’, being their first ever.
“I want to congratulate the Super Eagles ‘B’ for their successful prosecution of the African Championship ongoing in Morocco with successive victories that have led them now to the finals.
Gabriel Okechukwu scored Nigeria’s winning goal in the 16th minute.
