After the heartache of failed attempts to qualify for recent soccer tournaments, the Super Eagles of Nigeria seem to have found sure footing in the current qualifying rounds for the Russia 2018 World Cup.
Displaying stamina and dexterity during their last two-legged tie against Cameroon who are the reigning African champions, it was gathered that the Eagles improved their fitness levels with Lucozade sports drink, which helped the team secure a first leg victory and a precious second-leg draw against their familiar foes.
This was showcased by Eagles goalkeeper, Ikechuckwu Ezenwa, who replenished his energy levels during the cagey affair, after surviving a chest-clattering tackle from an overzealous Cameroonian attacker during the second leg in Yaounde.
The remarkable results by the Eagles have ensured continuous outpouring of tributes from soccer-mad and happy Nigerians.
