Meanwhile, Dalung, revealed that the team’s victory was discussed and applauded at the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting chaired by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo.
“The Federal Executive Council was officially informed that Nigeria had qualified for the World Cup in Russia 2018, having completed our match with Algeria.
“In our plans for Russia 2018, we have a driving philosophy. Our principle for 2018 is that Nigeria is not going to Russia as a spectator, we are contenders. The world should watch out for the new Nigerian soccer.
“From the outcome of what happened yesterday, there is no doubt that Nigeria has made a statement,’’ he said.
