The presiding officer of the country’s senate has boosted Gernot Rohr’s men with cash gift ahead of their clash with the Three Lions
 
Nigeria’s Senate President Abubakar Bukola Saraki has splashed the sum of fifty thousand dollars ($50,000) on the Super Eagles ahead of their clash with England.

Gernot Rohr’s men were held to a 1-1 draw by Congo DR on Monday and will continue their preparations for the World Cup with a friendly versus the Three Lions on Saturday.

In a mini event held at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja on Tuesday evening, the country’s top lawmaker lauded the team for their sense of commitment while urging them to soar high in Russia.

“I have been following the performances and general behaviour of this squad. I must confess that I am very impressed,” said Saraki.

“We no longer have schisms and different camps in the same camp, and you sacrifice a lot for the country without demanding so much before you go to battle.

“From the captain, Mikel Obi to the newest member of the squad, I assure you of the love of the entire country and the well-wishes of every Nigerian as you go to the Fifa World Cup and in fact, in all your endeavours.”

Aside the windfall, senator Saraki also pledged an undisclosed package for the team when the competition gets underway in Russia.
