One hundred and fifty out of the 300 members of the Nigeria Football Supporters Club to cheer on the Super Eagles at the World Cup in Brazil are expected to depart for the South American country on Friday.
The NFSC President-General Rafiu Ladipo said this after a joint prayer session for the Super Eagles by Christians and Muslims at the National Stadium, Lagos on Thursday.
Ladipo said the remaining 150 would leave on Saturday, adding that they would be joined by 500 members of the club in other countries in Brazil.
He commended President Goodluck Jonathan and Globacom for supporting the club.
He said the Eagles should not be judged on the outcomes of their friendly matches ahead of the World Cup, saying the team would perform in the tournament.
Ladipo said, “Nigerians should continue to support and pray for the success of the team in the World Cup.
“We, members of the supporters club, believe in God and the efficacy of prayer.
“That is the reason why we organised this joint prayer session of Christians and Muslims for the success of the team at the World Cup.”
