"We've been to a few World Cups in recent years, and we need to be looking at progressing further - rather than crashing out in the early stages", Olofinjana told newsmen in Uyo.

Buhari called on all Nigerians to apply the values of perseverance, resilience, discipline, hard work and team-spirit, which propelled the players to excel since the beginning of the qualifying matches, to all sectors of national life.

With the home victory over the Zambians who have never featured in the Mundial, Nigeria has registered its sixth World Cup appearance after Brazil 2014.
