Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has hailed the Super Eagles after their resounding victory over familiar foes, Cameroon.

The Super Eagles on Saturday defeated the Indomitable Lions thanks to a brace from Ademola Lookman.

In a series of tweets, he wrote, “I totally enjoyed the Super Eagles’ incredible display of teamwork and determination tonight against the team from Cameroon.

“From Osimhen’s hard work to Lookman’s brace to Ekong and Bassey’s very solid performances as well as Nwabali’s solidity, kudos to the entire team.

“Onto the quarterfinals! Let’s carry this momentum forward, Super Eagles. Best of luck in the next round, and may our journey in #TotalEnergiesAFCON2023 continue to shine bright.”
