Having registered a blistering start to their AFCON campaign on Tuesday against the Pharaohs of Egypt, the Super Eagles have been charged to add another win against Sudan on Saturday.

“33” Export Lager, the official beer of the Super Eagles, reckons that a double win resonates perfectly with its unique 33 brand name and also ensures Nigeria’s qualification for the second round of the continent’s biggest football competition.

In a statement, yesterday, the brand notes it is beginning to see the 1994 spirit in this team when Nigeria for the first time won the AFCON tournament on foreign soil in Tunisia.

The team is led by on-field captain that won the African title in 1994, Augustine Eguavoen and Joseph Yobo, who led the team to the last win of the cup in 2013. The brand sees their presence on the technical bench as good omen needed for winning mentality for the team at the on-going tournament.

Added to the combination of the duo on the Super Eagles’ bench, the firm recently unveiled Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha (AFCON winner in1994) as its Brand Ambassador to galvanize Nigerian football fans to the ‘Super Together’ campaign message at the on-going tournament in Cameroun.

Senior Brand Manager, “33” Export Lager, Aishat Anaekwe, charged the Eagles to remain focused and go for an even bigger win over Sudan.

“The campaign slogan, ‘Super Together,’ is to enable passionate fans to stand behind and cheer the team to glorious success at all matches played by the national team within and outside the country and now that Super Eagles had taken the first match, it will be good for them to win the second match,” she remarked.

While the Super Eagles are doing their part on the pitch, the firm said it would engage millions of soccer fans across its digital platforms with ‘Predict and Win’ games, where quality items are up for grabs.
