Is it Nigeria's jersey that is drawing all the love or is it just love for the most populous black nation in Africa?
Just as the Super Eagles are preparing to face Croatia, more love is coming to the team and this time it is from Brazil.
Brazil’s President, Michel Temer, on Saturday expressed his best wishes for Nigeria’s Super Eagles at the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup.
Temer made this statement of support when Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama, paid him a courtesy visit in Brasilia.
A statement by the Media Aide to Onyeama, Ms Sarah Sanda, on Saturday in Abuja, said the minister was on a week working visit to Brazil.
