President Muhammadu Buhari has asked the Super Eagles to play a clean and fair game but bring the World Cup trophy back home.

The President stated this on Wednesday when he met with the Super Eagles at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

The meeting was held just before the commencement of the weekly Federal Executive Council, (FEC).

Also present at the meeting was the Youth and Sports Minister, Solomon Dalung.

The Super Eagles are expected to leave the country today for London in preparation towards their match against England at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday evening, another pre-World Cup friendly.

In five previous outings at the FIFA World Cup, the Eagles have reached the Round of 16 on three occasions (1994, 1998 and 2014), but excited at the group stage at the 2002 and 2010 finals.
