jonathan_goodluckWorld Cup-bound Green Eagles were May 20th given a presidential send off party at the Villa with a wish from the president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

It was the president’s first official engagement with the country’s national football team and the coach, Lars Lagerback and Dr Jonathan did not spare any moment in ensuring he made the best out of the occasion.

After all the drinks and chattering, the President settled for business. In his ever joyous mien and countenance, President Jonathan told the party that the 2010 World Cup was a very serious engagement for the country. He urged the team and the technical officials to do well at the Mundial because a good outing in South Africa would not only boost the country’s image internationally but will also justify the huge investment government had put into the project.

“I wish you well. I wish you goodluck in South Africa. Be good ambassadors of our great country Nigeria and show the world that we are truly the giants of Africa,” President Goodluck Jonathan said.

The number one citizen said the South Africa 2010 World Cup, the first to be held on the African continent was not just like any in the past. “I want us to make a good impression because this is the first World Cup on the African continent. We must prove our relevance and tell the world that we are no longer the dark continent in world football.”
