Johannesburg — The Federal Government has said it was ready to make the present set of Super Eagles players become the first beneficiaries of the National Sports Hall of Fame that was recently given approval by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.
Minister of Sports Mallam Bolaji Abdulahi, who disclosed this on Thursday night while addressing players and officials of the Super Eagles at their Garden Court Hotel camp in Milpark, South Africa, also said that the government has mapped out a heroic welcome for the team by Monday next week.
Abdulahi also said the government is proud of the achievement of the team so far but added that the team must complete the job by winning the trophy.
"Victory is not everything but victory is the only thing", he declared.
He admonished the team to go all out for victory in the final against the Stallions of Burkina Faso at the Soccer City in Soweto on Sunday.
