Fans rush to Star Fan Park Eagles’ poor show
It wasn’t what they expected but the cross section of fans at the Star Fan Park at the National Stadium in Lagos and other designated parks across the country on Sunday remained resolute that the Super Eagles could still go all the way to conquer at the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.
Despite being the overwhelming favourites, the Super Eagles were stunned 0-2 in their last group game on Sunday by Madagascar.
As always, it was a carnival-like atmosphere at the Star Fan Park as fans trooped in massively to see the Eagles soar in style into the knock out phase.
The official beer for the Super Eagles provided another electrifying atmosphere, which availed fans to win lots of prizes as they took part in trivia and other fun games.
While Coach Gernot Rohr’s decision to field a second string side proved costly, the fans at the Star Fan Park described the loss against Madagascar as a temporary setback.
“For me, there is no cause for alarm. I believe the Super Eagles will bounce back after this defeat… it is just one of those things in football.”
Adewale Akinwale, one of the fans at the Star Fan Park on Sunday said.
The brand continued with their tradition of rewarding fans for their passion for the Super Eagles and their loyalty to the beer.
A raffle draw was conducted after the Eagles’ game and lucky fans won mouthwatering prizes.
Babatunde Kolawole, who is one of the lucky winners, thanked Star Lager for bringing the AFCON action closer and also charged the Eagles to rise up to the occasion in the Round of 16.
Also the duo of Abraham Mba and Chukwuka Adimoha, who emerged as prizewinners in the raffle draw, thanked Star for the pleasant surprise, while also tasking the Eagles to provide an improved performance in the Round 16.
