Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on Nigeria´s 2010 World Cup qualification, Governor Rotimi Amaechi has told the Super Eagles to rise valiantly from Tuesday´s shocking embarrassment by champions Egypt and put their Cup of Nations campaign back on track with a win over Benin Republic on Saturday.

The Rivers State Governor, who watched the match alongside other PTF chieftains like Sports Minister Sani Ndanusa, Mr. Olusegun Adeniyi and Mr. Austin Okocha and members of the Senate Committee on Sports and House of Reps Committee on Sports, spoke to the players and officials at their Hotel Praia Morena in Benguela on Wednesday morning.
