The Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Sunday Dare, has charged the Super Eagles to go for the win against Liberia later today in their 2022 World Cup qualifier.

The Lone Star of Liberia host the Super Eagles in Tangier, Morocco in this all-important clash.

Nigeria won the reverse fixture 2-0 in Lagos earlier in the year.

Dare, in a statement to the team on Saturday, urged them to do the nation proud and brighten their chances of qualifying for the final stage of the 2022 World Cup African qualifiers.

“The whole of Nigeria is behind you,” Dare said in his statement to the team.

“I believe in you. I know that the coaches have worked hard and the entire team is fired up for this.

“So, go and do us proud. Do not take anything for granted.

“Give your 100% on the pitch to get a win today and then we wrap things up in Lagos next Tuesday,” Dare said.

The Gernot Rohr tutored Super Eagles are currently on top of Group C with nine points garnered from 4 games.

They are followed by Cape Verde on seven points, Central Africa Republic four points and Liberia three points.

The Super Eagles had won two matches against Cape Verde and Liberia before the shocking 0-1 loss at home to less endowed Central Africa Republic on October 7.
