President Goodluck Jonathan has congratulated the Super Eagles for defeating the Eagles of Mali.
"Again, coach Keshi and our skillful and patriotic players have shown the world the indomitable Nigerian spirit.
It is this spirit that Nigeria's leading lights came together to celebrate on Monday the 4th of February 2013 as we began our centenary celebrations.
The Super Eagles have done us proud, the Cup is within reach and Nigeria is indeed grateful and expectant of a special centenary gift from our players." GEJ
