Kenyan opposition leader Raila Odinga declares support for Super Eagles

Nigeria is among four other African nations that will be participating in the competition.

In Kenya, most fans tip Brazil or Germany to lift the coveted cup, according to a survey conducted by Geopoll.

However, for one Raila Odinga, the Super Eagles of Nigeria is the team to root for going into the tournament.

The opposition leader seems to have declared his support for the Nigerian football team going by his tweet on Saturday evening that read: "Well done Nigeria Goodluck to the Super Eagles! Who are you supporting in this year's World Cup?"

The tweet stirred up mixed reactions online but also came as a surprise to his followers on a platform he mainly uses to address political and economic issues.

Nigeria is among four other African nations that will be participating in the competition. They include Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco and Senegal.
