National President, *Football Fans Club of Nigeria, FFCN, Ambassador Oluwakemi Ogunfuwa* on Tuesday made a passionate appeal on win-the-match spirit to the Nigeria's Under 20 side and qualify to the next stage of the FIFA U20 World Cup going on in Argentina. 

The Flying Eagles will take on the Gli Azzurini of Italy on Wednesday(tomorrow) in a second match of the group stage of the FIFA U20 World Cup, after which the attention will be shifted to Brazil in the final match of the preliminary stage

Ambassador Ogunfuwa while addressing journalists at the National headquarters of the club in Lagos said a win would surely make the third match against Brazil a mere formality as the results would be good enough to earn the team a qualification to the next round having beating Domincan Republic 2-1 in their opening game 

The CAF Award winning Matriarch said, “I am so happy for the Flying Eagles winning the first match against the hard fighting Dominican Republic on Sunday and my sincere wish for the team is to go all out and secure a win against Italy who edged past Brazil 3-2 in their opening match.I’m sure that would make the last encounter against Brazil a less burdensome encounter. We plead that our boys do us proud tomorrow and take us to the next round of the competition. May I also reiterate that Nigerians have faith in them and we implore them to put smiles in the faces of football loving Nigerians".

The Graduate of English of the University of Lagos added that “Please do it right and make over 180 Million Nigerians happy at home as we will all stick to the screen to watch the team against the European football giant tomorrow (Wednesday)".
