Major sponsor of football in Nigeria, Globacom has called on the U-17 National team, Golden Eaglets to ensure total victory over their Zambian opponents on Saturday at the on-going African Youth Championship in Niamey, Niger Republic.
The company, in a statement released in Lagos on Thursday, said that outright victory over the Zambian U-17 National team in the last group match of the Championship would place the Eaglets at a vantage position to amass the three points and also qualify for the quarter finals.
The Eaglets, who held Guinea to a 1-1draw in their last group match, need outright win against Zambia to boost their chance of qualifying from the group.
“The draw with Guinea was not a bad outing, but the Zambia match is a must-win and we believe the Eaglets can make it,” Globacom added.
Globacom, therefore advised the Eaglets to concentrate and go for early goals which according to the company “will boost the team’s confidence to win the match.”
The Golden Eaglets with four points jointly lead Group A with Guinea who also amassed four points but with less number of goals.
Zambia with three points occupies the third position, while Niger Republic rocks the bottom of the table without any point.
Globacom is the major partner of Nigeria Football Federation and the official sponsor of all Nigerian National teams.
