The Nigeria Amputee Football team, AKA ‘Special Eagles’ have finally recorded their first victory at the ongoing tournament in Mexico. This win is coming after enduring losses in their first two games.
The Special Eagles pipped their counterparts from El Salvador by a lone goal.
The victory, though slim, is quite historic and commendable knowing the odds the Nigeria Amputee Football team braved to make their debut appearance at the World Cup after missing out on the past three editions and almost also missed out in Mexico.
PDP’s presidential candidate Atiku Abubakar has also sand their praises by given them words of encouragement.
”I am super excited that Nigeria’s Special Eagles, against all odds, recorded their first victory in their maiden World Cup outing in Mexico. It is my hope that with greater support, they can only get better and soar like the Eagles they are,” he said.
But will he also remember them if luck shines on him and he becomes President in 2019?
