President Muhammadu Buhari has held aloft the prestigious World Cup trophy which will again be contested for by Nigeria and 31 other countries from June in Russia.
At this event he also received the home-based Eagles, who reached the championship game at the recent CHAN in Morocco.
Mr President had personally followed the progress of the country’s ‘B’ team in Morocco, where they recorded the country’s best performance at the CHAN by playing the final against hosts Morocco.
Could he also be receiving the main Super Eagles with the World Cup on July 15?
Here are photos from that history-making day.
