ROAD TO BRAZIL Mini-Series #4: NAIJAs in BRAZIL wishing the SUPER EAGLES the best of luck – in PORTUGUESE!

16 Jun

It’s D-Day for Nigeria at the FIFA 2014 World Cup, as the Super Eagles kick off their campaign to soar higher than any Nigeria team has ever done at the Big Dance, facing off against Iran tonight! 8pm Naija time!!

As the Eagles prepare for kick-off and the rest of us wait in glorious anticipation, we bring you a special message for Nigerians and the team, from our Portuguese-speaking Nigerians from Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), who were on their exchange were in Brazil last year during the Confederations Cup! This the first look we have of them speaking in Portuguese – Enjoy!

Indeed, the OAU students on their year abroad exchange programme in Salvador played a big role in making this project possible, not only as subjects, but also as Portuguese Language interviewers and translators – OAU has been running this exchange programme in Brazil for more than 30 years now!

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, check out the first three episodes of the mini-series which we’ve been running since the World Cup started!!
