President of Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Aminu Maigari has stated that the Super Eagles will play with their hearts when they confront Ethiopia on Saturday in their 2014 FIFA World Cup final qualifying match, not thinking of the result of the first leg in Addis Ababa last month.

President of Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Aminu Maigari has assured Nigerians that the Super Eagles will earn a ticket to the 2014 FIFA World Cup finals in their final qualifying match against Ethiopia in Calabar on Saturday, only eight days after the Golden Eaglets set a world record of four wins in the FIFA U-17 World Cup competition.
