The Liberian President, Mr. George Weah, on Monday advised the Super Eagles to prepare early to enable them to make impact in the Russia 2018 World Cup.
Weah, a former professional footballer, made the call in an interview with State House correspondents after meeting President Muhammadu Buhari behind closed doors at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The Liberian President also urged Nigerian sports authorities to provide conducive environment for the players in the camp.
He warned against a situation where players would be deprived of their allowances, saying such situation makes players to lose focus.
He said, “I think Nigerian team is a model, we all follow them. “I have played with great Nigerian players, I played against them. Now you have a new generation, the fact that they qualified is a good thing for Nigeria. “But I hope they will prepare very early, because they are going to represent Africa and we will be there to watch them, for them to bring the trophy for the first time if it is possible.”
