Flying Eagles star Ibrahim Muhammad has dedicated his goal in Nigeria’s 2-0 victory over Argentina at the U-20 World Cup to President Bola Tinubu.
He scored the opening goal with Haliru Sikiru adding another as Nigerians beat the host nation to reach the quarter-finals of the competition.
In his post-match conference, a joyful Ibrahim hailed his team for the feat, dedicating the game’s first strike to the new Nigerian leader.
With Wednesday’s win, Coach Ladan Bosso’s charges have now set up a tie with either Ecuador or South Korea for a place in the last four.
The win against Argentina was sweet revenge for the Nigerians who were only meeting the South Americans for the second time in the age-grade competition.
