Nigeria’s Sports Minister Encourages Super Eagles to Stay Focused for AFCON Clash

John Owan Enoh, rallied the Super Eagles ahead of their crucial clash against Cameroon in the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Ivory Coast. The Minister emphasized the nation’s fervent desire for victory while urging the players to disregard distractions, particularly from social media, as they gear up for the high-stakes encounter on Saturday.

Speaking during a Zoom meeting with the Super Eagles players and coaches on Wednesday, Enoh delivered a message brimming with fervor and conviction. “Please listen to the coach [Jose Peseiro]. Don’t lose focus, let your eyes remain on the ball,” he urged the team, highlighting the critical need for unwavering concentration amidst mounting expectations.

The Minister’s words took on a deeply personal tone as he implored the players to temporarily disconnect from the digital noise. “I will further suggest that at a moment like this, forget about social media.
