“Ahead of their upcoming friendly match against England this weekend, I paid the @NGSuperEagles a surprise visit and wished them all the best — and even greater success in the upcoming #Russia2018 World Cup,” he tweeted.


The team is also expected to meet President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday morning.

The event slated for the Council Chambers is meant to afford the President the opportunity of bidding the players farewell as they depart for their sixth appearance at the World Cup.

The team will travel to London a few minutes after meeting Buhari, aboard a chartered aircraft for another friendly against England at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.
