Nigeria’s telecoms operator and official sponsor of Nigerian national teams, Globacom has called on the Flying Eagles and National Under-17 team - ‘The Golden Eaglets’ to approach their respective football engagements this weekend with a focus on total victory.
Flying Eagles and Golden Eaglets will this weekend mount a double assault for African Youth Championship and 2013 African U-17 qualifier tickets in Johannesburg and Calabar respectively.
Globacom in a press statement called on both teams to make Nigeria proud by winning their matches to pave way for early qualification for both competitions.
While the U-20 team takes on Amajita of South Africa on Saturday, the Golden Eaglets will on Sunday file out against junior Menas of Niger in an all important African Qualifier.
Total victory according to Globacom is required as the battle for qualification gathers momentum.
Globacom called on the two teams to make it a memorable weekend for soccer loving Nigerians by defeating their opponents and advancing towards the next stage.
Acknowledging that there are no more minnows in African football, Globacom noted that beating South Africa and Niger convincingly, should not be a very tough task for Nigeria given the fine collection of tested players the U-20 and the U-17 teams will be parading.
As the foremost corporate supporter of football in Nigeria, Globacom said it is fully behind the National Teams in their quest to land the two qualification tickets.
