One of the major sponsors of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), Zenith Bank, has commended the Super Eagles for their exploits so far in the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) taking place in Egypt.
Super Eagles won two games 1-0 respectively against Burundi and Guinea in the preliminary stage to book a passage to the last 16 where they defeated Cameroon 3-2 in a keenly contested encounter. In the quarterfinal, the Bafana Bafana after edging out host Egypt, were unable to withstand the firepower of the Nigerian team as Eagles pip them 2-1 to book a ticket to the last four.
The Eagles was defeated by Algeria in the semifinal in Cairo on Sunday. Zenith Bank has however expressed delight over the progress of the three-time African champions. The Group Managing Director of the bank, Ebenezer Onyeagwu, commended the fighting spirit of the Eagles adding that they have displayed the quality of champions.
He said: “The Super Eagles have been amazing so far and we appreciate their efforts at the AFCON tournament in Egypt. As an organization, we are going to continue to support the NFF and also ensure we boost the senior national team to get good results at all times for Nigeria.”
