Major sponsor of the Nigerian national teams, Globacom, has urged Super Eagles players and the technical crew to shrug off the challenges they encountered in their build-up to the on-going FIFA Confederation Cup in Brazil and focus on the task ahead.
The Eagles who are the African representatives at the global competition, missed a scheduled flight to Brazil on Thursday after playing a 1-1 draw with Namibia’s Brave Warriors in a World Cup 2014 qualifier.
Nigeria kicks off its campaign in Group B of the Confederation Cup with Tahiti on Monday, after which the Eagles will meet Uruguay on June 20 and Spain on June 23.
The Company said it is optimistic that the Super Eagle will brave the odds and do well against Tahiti.
“We want the team and its technical crew to be motivated by the fact that they are not representing only Nigeria but the entire Africa continent at the Confederation Cup. Therefore, the onus is on them to make Nigeria and Africa proud,” said the statement.
Globacom also appealed to Nigerians to pray for the Eagles’ success at the competition.
“We call on all Nigerians to support the Eagles so that they can achieve the set target of going all the way in Brazil,” the statement concluded.
Globacom is the official telecommunications partner of the Nigeria Football Federation and major sponsor of the Nigeria national teams.
