Ahead of the FIFA 2018 World Cup in Russia, the Nigeria Football Supporters’ Club (NFSC) says it will uphold the nation’s integrity at the mundial. The assurance was given through its National Chairman, Samuel Ikpea, in a chat with sports journalists, stressing that such was expected of the body and it must live up to the expectation.
Ikpea said preparation was in progress to ensure a significant representation of the nation through its members in the soccer fiesta holding from June. “As a body, ambassadors and official supporters club of the nation, we are mindful of the image of our great country Nigeria and making sure that we portray good impression. “Anything contrary to this idea in the bid of drumming support to our national team in the World Cup will result in national disgrace which must be avoided.
“Meanwhile, our members are working hard to collaborate with our sponsors so that we will storm Russia in our great number to cheer our Super Eagles,’’ he said.
He insisted that there were no two chairmen of the NFSC, adding that he was democratically elected as the national chairman in the club’s elections held in Lagos in December 2016.
The former national secretary of NFSC added that the body’s main objective is to be united in support of the National football team, while intensified efforts in making its representation in the World Cup a reality.
