Nigerian Breweries Plc has urged the Super Eagles to extract their pound of flesh from the Bafana Bafana of South Africa when the two sides meet on Saturday in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.
South Africa defeated Nigeria 2-0 at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, in their opening Group E game of the qualifiers in June 2017, but Emmanuel Oriakhi, the Marketing Director of Nigerian Breweries, in a message, believes coach Gernot Rohr’s side can avenge their defeat to their rivals.
“As an official partner of the Nigeria Football Federation, Nigerian Breweries Plc is solidly behind the Eagles to deliver the goals and the points to seal the very important ticket that will guarantee Nigeria’s return to the Africa Cup of Nations after failing to qualify for the last two editions in 2015 in Equatorial Guinea and 2017 in Gabon,” Oriakhi stated.
The Eagles are expected to start arriving the team’s camp in Asaba, Delta State, to begin preparations for the game scheduled for the 94,000-capacity FNB Stadium in Johannesburg. Oriakhi assured NFF and the Eagles of Nigerian Breweries’ support all the way to South Africa.
“As the Official Beer and Official Malt drink of the Eagles, the two brands will be providing support to players and the coaching crew, as well as premium satisfaction to millions of passionate fans that will be cheering the Eagles before, during and after Saturday’s game in Johannesburg to secure the ticket to participate in Africa’s premier football competition,” he added.
