The Kaduna State governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, has expressed confidence in the ability of the Super Eagles to overcome the Pharaohs of Egypt when both sides take to the pitch in today’s African Cup of Nations qualifier at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium, Kaduna.

El-Rufai, predicted the victory while receiving officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) who paid him a courtesy call.

“I want to wish the Eagles victory. It’s going to be a tough match, but we are confident that the Eagles will win, by God’s grace,” said El-Rufai.

Also, the governor informed his visitors that his administration considered football as a very important component in the ‘unify Nigeria’ project.

“Kaduna has made great contributions to national football. We gave the world the likes of Daniel Amokachi, Rashidi Yakeni, Tijjani Babangida and the Babayaro brothers.

“For us, the development of football is a major goal. We have started work on establishing an academy,” he disclosed.
