Former president of Nigeria Good Ebele Jonathan has saluted the Nigerian U23 Eagles despite losing to Germany in the semifinal of the Rio Olympics football event for men.
The former president applauded the team via his Facebook page and urged them to bounce back in their next match against Honduras on Saturday and at least win the bronze medal. In his message he wrote :“The Dream Team gave it their best. A commendable performance. All is not lost. I look forward to a resurgence against Honduras on Saturday.”
It was obvious that the former president seems to have been following the team’s performance in the global event, as he also congratulated the team after they defeated Denmark in the quarterfinal stage of the tournament.
