Nigeria national football teams’ sponsor Globacom has urged Nigerian fans to give massive support to the nation’s U-23 male football team and the senior women’s football team as the file out for honours this weekend.
Globacom also tasked the two teams to ensure that they make the nation proud in their different football engagements this weekend.
The Dream Team hosts Congo at Adokiye Amiesimaka Stadium in Port Harcourt on Sunday in the first leg qualifying match for Africa U-23 Championship for the Rio 2016 Olympics, while the Super Falcons will play their Equatorial Guinea counterparts on Saturday at National Stadium, Abuja, in the first leg of the final qualifying round for the same Olympics in Rio, Brazil. “The Samson-Siasia led U-23 national team is doing the right thing by emphasizing intensive and rigorous preparation ahead of their match against Congo. We are confident that they will excel against the Congolese,” Globacom said in a statement in Lagos on Tuesday.
“The drafting of some of the outstanding Flying Eagles players like Taiwo Awoniyi and Musa Mohammed to the team by Coach Siasia will stand Nigeria in good stead to beat Congo comprehensively to wrap up the qualification for the Dream Team ahead of the second leg,” the statement added.
