Following the continuous rise of Nigeria’s Super Eagles in the FIFA rankings which has now seen the team climb to 5th position in Africa and 40th in the world, Super Eagles’ Media Officer, Toyin Ibitoye has attributed the team’s rise to hard work and dedication.
The Super Eagles are enjoying an unbeaten run under Franco-German tactician, Gernot Rohr as they have under his tutelage won three games and a draw against highly rated Teranga Lions of Senegal.
However, Toyin Ibitoye maintained that the successes and steady rise of the team on the rankings is as a result of hard work.
