Nigeria's President, Goodluck Jonathan has promised a surprise package for the national team if they are able to make a major impact at the ongoing World Cup being hosted in Brazil.
Speaking through Senate President David Mark, who led a Federal government delegation to wish the Eagles well in the championship, Jonathan said it was time an African country won the World Cup.
He added that the African champions were motivated enough to do the magic.
"When we won the Olympics gold medal at Atlanta 96, we defeated countries like Argentina and Brazil, so I believe we can have a repeat performance at this year's World Cup, with the talents available to us in this team", he said.
Earlier, Nigeria Football Federation President, Aminu Maigari, assured that with the caliber of players paraded by the African champions, Nigerians and indeed, Africans will not be wide of the mark if they start thinking of winning the World Cup.
Responding, Head Coach of the team, Stephen Keshi said he was happy to see top government functionaries visiting the team before they kick their first ball of the tournament, stressing that it would motivate the players to perform even better.
Team Skipper, Joseph Yobo, assured Nigerians once again that the team will not disappoint at the tournament, even as he called for prayers and positive attitude from all and sundry.
