President Goodluck Jonathan with the Super Eagles
By Olawale Ajimotokan
President Goodluck Jonathan Thursday urged the Super Eagles to sustain the chase for a ticket to the 201s world Cup in Brazil by beating Namibia in Windhoek next week.
Jonathan tasked the team Thursday at the flag off the Rhythm and Play mobilisation project initiated by the Nigeria Academicals Sports Committee (NASCOM).
He described as heart warming the Eagles 1-0 win over Kenya in Nairobi on Wednesday and charged the team focus on qualification for the World Cup in Brazil.
He said government would provide all necessary assistance to set the country on the path towards achieving that objective.
The Rhythm and Play project will target and introduce about two million Nigerian children per year into sports through collaborative engagements of the National Sports Commission (NSC) and the Ministry of Education.
