Leading telecommunications company, Globacom, has called on the Super Eagles to go for outright victory when they confront the Flames of Malawi in their Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifier scheduled for the U.J Esuene Stadium, Calabar on Saturday.
Nigeria tops Group F that also comprises Namibia and Kenya with nine points from five games, trailed by Malawi with seven points, and only needs to avoid defeat to the Flames to qualify for the next round.
“The Eagles should beat the Flames to put the World Cup ticket beyond the Southern African nation ahead of the qualifiers’ final round taking place next month,” Globacom said in a statement in Lagos Thursday.
“We are also aware of the mind games that the Malawians have played in the build up to this encounter and we urge the Eagles and their technical crew not to be distracted but rather field a crack squad in the Calabar game to win the group’s ticket in style.
“We therefore urge the Eagles to play the visitors as true African champions, with determination,” said the telecom firm.
Globacom is the official telecommunications partner of the Nigeria Football Federation and the major sponsor of the Nigerian national teams.
