Ahead of Friday’s Super Eagles second group D match against Iceland in Volgograd, the Nigeria Football Federation, NFF, has disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari will once more speak with the players and officials of the team before the match.

The chat, according to the NFF, is aimed at motivating the boys to see the game against Iceland as the only game that would determine Nigeria’s continued stay in the World Cup, adding that the players have already seen the game in that way.
