Super Eagles stars Leon Balogun and Shehu Abdulahi have thrown their weight behind the Nigerian side who will in the next couple of minutes file out against Ghana in the 2017 WAFU Cup of Nations.
To reach the Championship match, the Super Eagles B, who qualified for the 5th African Nations Championship finals after a 2-1 aggregate win over Benin Republic in August, ejected Sierra Leone with a 2-0 win in the first knockout phase, and drew 0-0 with Mali and Guinea before seeing off hosts Ghana 2-0 in last group phase attrition. In the semifinals, CHAN qualifying victims Benin Republic
were turned back 1-0, meaning Nigeria is yet to concede a goal in the sub-regional football fiesta.
Balogun in his support message for the Super Eagles wrote: "Good luck @NGSuperEagles in the #WAFU2017 final 2nite. Best jollof rice comes from us, show them that we are the better ballers as well." the Eagles defendwer
