French president Emmanuel Macron has taken to his twitter official handle to charge Nigerians to support the French team at the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

This came as Macron visited Nigeria. While addressing basketballers at an event in Lagos, he urged Nigerians to support the French Les Bleus at the tournament in Russia as the Super Eagles are no longer in the competition following their group stage exit.

His tweet reads;

“I will like you to support the French team till the end of the World Cup. We defeated Argentina and at least, we did what we had to do after they had defeated the Super Eagles. So now, as the Super Eagles are no more in the tournament please support the French football team, we will win the World Cup.”

He further said;

“Sports can educate and empower people. I am a firm believer in the impact sport can have on each life and the future of a country. It’s time to invest in sports in Nigeria.”

The Super Eagles of Nigeria lost two games and won just one to finish below Argentina in the group.

France, however, defeated Argentina 4-3 when both sides met in the round of 16 clash.

France will take on Uruguay later today, July 6 and the winners of the encounter will take on the winners of the game between Brazil and Belgium in the semifinals of the competition.
