Nigeria’s legendary former skipper Segun Odegbami motivates the Super Eagles before today’s crucial tie with Iceland

22 June 2016

Nigeria’s Super Eagles face Iceland  in about a couple of hours in a crucial World Cup Group D clash in Volgograd. After losing 2-0 in their opener against Croatia, the Nigerians must win today to retain any real hope of staying in the tournament beyond the group stages.

Last night the team was visited by arguably Nigeria’s best ever player, the right winger Segun Odegbami.
