It’s the World Cup opening day and for all Nigerians and fans of the Super Eagles, especially those not opportuned to be in Brazil right now, we have a never-seen before documentary mini-series shot on location in Salvador da Bahia in support of the Super Eagles!
The Road to Brazil Mini-Series features a special group of Nigerians who either live in Brazil or studied there in the year leading up to the World Cup starting today! Indeed, the students of Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU) on their year abroad exchange programme in Salvador played a big role in making this project possible, not only as subjects, but as Portuguese Language interviewers and translators – OAU has been running this exchange programme for more than 30 years now, and these students stand out as being pretty much the ONLY people in their age group in Nigeria who are fluent in Portuguese!
To get an idea of what it was like to be in Brazil when Nigeria played there at the Confederations Cup last year, and a feel for what the support for the Super Eagles will be like at the World Cup, watch out for more from this mini-series during the big dance. The next part will be released tomorrow – stay tuned!
