President Muahammadu Buhari has applauded the Super Eagles on their triumphant win after yesterday's match against Guinea-Bissau.

The Super Eagles beat Guinea-Bissau 2-0 to be the first team in their group to make it to the knock out stage after a record of nine points.

Congratulating the team for their excellent performance, President Buhari urged them to remain good ambassadors of Nigeria both on and off the field.

He assured them of his 'unflinching support' to emerge victorious in the AFCON games.

His post reads, "Congratulations to our Super Eagles on winning all their three games and advancing to the second round of the AFCON in grand style.

I urge them to maintain and even surpass the terrific form that has made them leaders in the group stage, and to remain good ambassadors of Nigeria on and off the field.

The entire country looks forward with hope to a total of SEVEN emphatic wins in this competition. Three down, four to go!

They are assured of my unflinching support as they soar like the Eagles that they are to write yet another brilliant chapter in the unfolding story of Nigerian football."
