The National team, Super Eagles has been advised to make Nigeria proud when the team lock horns with Bafana Bafana in the crucial last qualifying match of 2015 African Cup of Nations in Uyo today.
“ The Eagles need maximum support from 170 Million Nigerians in their quest to win the match and pick the second Group A ticket to 2015 African Cup of Nations’ in Equatorial Guinea.” Globacom said in press statement released in Lagos on Tuesday.
Globacom therefore tasked the Super Eagles not to spare Bafana Bafana on Wednesday, adding that only total victory will make Nigerians happy, especially after the team returned to reckoning in the group with their heart-warming victory over the Red Devils of Congo in Pointe Noire on Saturday.
Bafana Bafana leads Group D with 11 points going into this game while Eagles are second with 7 points, although they tie with Red Devils of Congo who will play Sudan in Khartoum, same day but with superior goals advantage.
“Like we expressed belief in the Super Eagles to beat Congo last weekend, we are also backing the team to pick the three points against South Africa in this game. We equally believe that the Eagles have rediscovered their rhythm and are on course towards featuring in Equatorial Guinea where they will defend their title in January next year,” the statement added.
According to Globacom: “We cannot fail to appreciate the collective effort of the team in surmounting the challenge in Congo as we believe the players will not take their feet off the pedal at this point in time until the AFCON ticket is secured,” the statement further said.
Meanwhile, the team has intensified preparation for the match with the Head Coach, Stephen Keshi, assuring Nigerians of good outing on Wednesday.
Globacom also commended the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for its steadfastness in supporting the national team, as well as the supporters club and the fans for their prayers.
