The Spanish football league governing body, La Liga Santander, has sent good luck message to Nigerian trio of Moses Simon, Francis Uzoho and Kenneth Omeruo ahead of Saturday’s Group E 2019 AFCON qualifier in Uyo.
The football body took to their verified Twitter handle to send their message to the three Nigerian stars.
Simon and Omeruo both play for Levante and Leganes respectively in the Spanish top flight, while Uzoho is on loan to second-tier side Elche from Deportivo La Coruna.
“Best of luck to this #LaLiga trio when the @NGSuperEagles play their #AFCON2019Q today! @Uzohof, @Simon27Moses @omeruo22,” they wrote on their verified Twitter handle with a picture of the players inside the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo.
All three players are expected to be in action for the Eagles against Group E leaders Libya who are yet to taste defeat in the qualifiers.
The group’s other game will see South Africa host Seychelles also on Saturday.
