Vice President Kashim Shettima has said the names of the Super Egales players will be written in gold following their performance at the just-concluded AFCON in Ivory Coast.
The Super Eagles lost the final 2-1 to host Ivory Coast on Sunday.
Shettima who was at the stadium on the night was however full of encouraging words to the players.
“You are the source of our national unity. When the Super Eagles play, there is no distinction based on region or religion. You unite the nation. Your names will be written in gold in the annals of contemporary footballing history in Nigeria,” Shettima told the Super Eagles.
