The Flying Eagles flew into Katowice, Poland from Munich, Germany on Sunday where they were welcomed by a few Nigerians and then driven under police escort to their hotel in the heart of Katowice.
Ambassador Bell-Gam, who was accompanied by some consular staff of the
Nigerian embassy in Warsaw was received at the Flying Eagles’ hotel by the leader of the Nigeria delegation, Mr. Abdulrafiu Yusuf and the team’s secretary, Aliyu Lawal Ibrahim.
The ambassador charged the Flying Eagles to go all out and make Nigeria proud when the competition starts, reiterating that himself and the Nigerian community in Poland are fully behind the team.
“The mood is very high at the embassy because of our expectations of Nigeria participating at this event (FIFA U20 World Cup),” Bell-Gram told thenff.com.
“The expectation is high as the Polish expect a lot from our team and we know that we are capable of doing it and we expect something good in terms of performance from the team.
“Let me start by saying that it is an honour that during my period as the ambassador to Poland, the country will be hosting the FIFA U20 World Cup and my country is participating. I find it to be a good thing that Nigeria qualified,” he added.
The ambassador also assured the Flying Eagles that Nigerians in Poland are solidly behind the team and despite challenges with getting match tickets, he promised to do his best to make sure that the issue is sorted out.
