Eagles Off To Brazil Tuesday

Nigeria’s Super Eagles will arrive in Brazil on Tuesday to feature in the 2014 FIFA World Cup beginning in that country on Thursday, 12 June.
Eyeonthesports.com gathered that the Eagles will fly aboard an American Airline from the Miami International Airport on Tuesday morning and land at the Guarulhos International Airport, Sao Paulo just before 9pm local time.
President of Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Aminu Maigari, who has arrived in Sao Paulo, Brazil for the 64th FIFA Congress billed for Tuesday and Wednesday in the big city, assured that the team would do Nigeria proud.
Maigari, who was with the Eagles at their final training camp in the United States of America before flying to Brazil for the important gathering of the world’s football administrators, said in Sao Paulo on Monday that he was satisfied with the team’s build-up to the tournament and is confident the African champions will impress at the finals.
“For sure, our people would have wanted the team to win the matches against Italy, Mexico, Scotland, Greece and USA. But we drew the first four and lost the last one.
“I have spoken with the Head Coach and he is optimistic that his boys will be ready for the finals. The earlier draws, and the loss to Team USA have afforded our boys a lot of lessons, which will be useful against Iran in
the first match and subsequently.”
