Goodluck Ebele Jonathan (center) is the president of Nigeria and has a pretty powerful approach of inspiring his country’s national soccer team. Since Nigeria failed to advance out of their group and since they were one of the heavy favorites out of the African teams in the World Cup, Goodluck has felt it necessary to take matters into his own hands and use his powers as president to lead, encourage, inspire, and demonstrate his love for the beautiful game by……….suspending the entire Nigerian national soccer team from competing in any international competitions for two years due to the embarrassing and horrific performances during World Cup play.
The BBC reported:
Nigeria’s president has suspended his nation’s football team from international competition for two years after a poor showing at the World Cup.
Special presidential adviser Ima Niboro told reporters the decision by Goodluck Jonathan will “enable Nigeria to reorganize its football.”
He said: “This directive became necessary following Nigeria’s poor performance in the ongoing World Cup.”
Uhhhhhhhhh am I missing something? Does this make any sense to anyone? I understand that the country needs to retool its program but not allowing them to compete at the top levels for two-years!?!? I almost find it harder to believe that the president of Nigeria actually has a name like Goodluck Jonathan.
Well, good luck to you Goodluck…………Good luck.
