Nigeria's leading brewing company, Nigerian Breweries Plc has told the Super Eagles to beat the Bafana Bafana when the two sides meet on Saturday in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations match day five game at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa.
It would be recalled that the Bafana Bafana defeated the Eagles 2-0 at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state in the opening Group E game of the qualifiers in June 2017, but the Marketing Director of Nigerian Breweries Plc, Emmanuel Oriakhi, believes coach Gernot Rohr and his boys are motivated to avenge that loss and confirm their ticket to the biennial African football fiesta in Cameroun next year.
“As an official partner of the Nigeria Football Federation, Nigerian Breweries Plc is solidly behind the Super 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 Super Eagles arrives the team's camp in Asaba, Delta state from Monday November 12, to begin preparations for the game scheduled for the 94,000-capacity FNB Stadium in Johannesburg and Nigerian Breweries Plc, whose brands ,Star Lager beer and Amstel Malta are the Official Beer and Official Malt drinks of the Super Eagles respectively has assured NFF and the team of its support all the way to South Africa.
