It is an exciting period for football lovers in the country as the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2021, kicks off in Cameroon today after it was postponed in 2021. One more reason for true fans of the game to be excited is the signing of Nigerian football legend and former Super Eagles Captain Austin “Jay Jay” Okocha as brand ambassador for “33” Export Lager Beer.

The midfield maestro is arguably one of the most loved sports heroes in the country and brought joy to many homes during his time as an active footballer with his exciting style of play.

The Eagles have never met the Djurtus of Guinea Bissau at the international level and hopefully, there are no unpleasant surprises.
