AFCON final: Mark warns Eagles against complacency

Senate President David Mark, on Saturday warned the Super Eagles against complacency in the final of the African Nations Cup in South Africa.

This is contained in a statement signed by the Super Eagles’ Media Officer, Ben Alaiya.

The statement quoted Mark as assuring the Super Eagles that the people and government of Nigeria were solidly behind them in their quest to win the AFCON for the third time.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Mark made a surprise appearance at the Super Eagles last training session at the Soccer City Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Mark was at the Eagles training to deliver President Goodluck Jonathan’s message to the team.

President Jonathan had appointed the Senate President to lead the government’s delegation to the final match following his visit to Europe.

Mark expressed optimism that the Super Eagles would win the trophy against the Stallions of Burkina Faso on Sunday.

He said that Nigerians were thrilled by their performance so far.

“Yes, the job has been well done, but like we say in local parlance the snake is dead and it’s time to cut its head,” Mark said.
