Liberian President and former FIFA World footballer of the year, George Weah says his prayer is for Nigeria to win the 2018 world cup in Russia.

He said this during his visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, FCT Abuja on Monday.

He urged the Nigerian government and the Nigeria Football Federation to provide all that the players would need at the camp so that they could prepare well for the tournament.

Weah who came to Nigeria on a thank you visit said that the Super Eagles would not only be representing Nigeria but Africa.

He noted that Nigeria had great players some of whom he had played with and now that the country would be parading young, talented players, there should be no reason for non-performance.

“The government should not hold players allowance so as not to dampen their morale,” Weah said.
