At Peak breakfast, Eagles reaffirm desire to win Egypt 2019 AFCON
Nigeria won its last continental trophy seven years ago in South Africa, but since then, this is the country’s first outing in the competition. The Eagles failed to qualify for the 2015 and 2017 editions.
At the weekend in Asaba, the team was treated to a sumptuous breakfast by one of their main sponsors, Peak Milk, where the players reaffirmed their commitment to winning the trophy in Egypt.
All the 25 players in camp as at that time, as well as their officials were at the breakfast session.
Captain John Mikel Obi and his teammates could not hide their excitement at the gesture by the brand, which has stood behind the squad over the years.
Coach Gernot Rohr said with the support from Peak, the team would be inspired to conquer in Egypt as the Super Eagles chase a fourth African title after the successes of 1980, 1994 and 2013.
Goalkeeper Ikechukwu Ezenwa expressed his delight at the special bonding session and said that Peak had been his No 1 milk.
“I am happy with Peak. I love Peak milk. And I am thrilled that the brand is supporting the Super Eagles,” the goalkeeper enthused.
Since 1998 when it backed the Super Eagles to the FIFA World Cup in France, Peak Milk has been supporting the national football team.
The brand was part of the success story of the Super Eagles as they went all the way in South Africa to lift the Africa Cup of Nations in 2013.
It is set to see the Super Eagles triumph again in Egypt 2019.
