Calling on Nigerians to get behind the Super Eagles, he said, "We are using this medium to call on Nigerians to get behind the team and those spreading rumours regarding the welfare of the team should make enquiry".

The only number to have started all five group stage opening games for Nigeria: Peter Rufai (1994, 98), Ike Shorunmu (2002), Vincent Enyeama (2010, 14).
