On top of that, of course, our player scored the goal for you that makes us very proud.

“Well done and see you in Russia and I’m sure you will have a great trip.”

Nigerians are very fond of Wenger especially because of his relationship with national hero Kanu Nwankwo whom he managed at Arsenal for six years.
