AFCON 2023: Nigerian Breweries Brand Charge S’Eagles for Early Qualification 

After propelling the Super Eagles to an away win in their last outing against Guinea-Bissau, three powerful brands from the stable of Nigerian Breweries Goldberg, Life Continental and ZAGG Energy Drink are back again to drive the national team to another glorious outing in the AFCON 2023 qualification series. 

With Goldberg, Life Continental and ZAGG Energy Drink solidly behind them, the Super Eagles are seeking a grand return to the Africa Cup of Nations and they will be gunning for an early qualification when they take on the Leone Stars of Sierra Leone in one of the Match-day 5 fixtures on Sunday, June 18, 2023. 

The Super Eagles were toppled from the top of the table by Guinea-Bissau who defeated São Tomé & Principe to move up to 10 points, one point above Nigeria. The Jose Peseiro’s ward need just a draw from Sunday’s clash with Sierra Leone to qualify for AFCON 2023 with a game to spare.

The Portfolio Manager – Mainstream Brands, NB Plc., Ita Bassey, while commending the Super Eagles for a job well done so far, tasked them to finish off the assignment in Monrovia even before their last game in September. 

He said: “We are confident that the Super Eagles will do the nation proud in Monrovia. We have been impressed with the team’s performance so far in the qualifiers and we believe that they have what it takes to qualify for the AFCON even before many other countries also aspiring to be in Côte d’Ivoire.” 

The Super Eagles are aware the Leone Stars are a stubborn team as they needed to come from behind before securing a 2-1 win when both teams faced off in Abuja last year. 

In the qualifiers for the last AFCON 2021  in Cameroon, Sierra Leone came back from 4-0 in Benin City to equalised 4-4. The reverse fixture ended in a draw in Freetown.

Now going against an even more desperate Sierra Leonian side, Coach Peseiro has rightly named a strong side that includes the highest goal scorer in the Serie A this just-concluded season, Victor Osimhen and the African MVP in the LaLiga, Samuel Chukwueze. 

Indeed, many are confident the Super Eagles will deliver on the result needed especially with the support coming from the powerful Nigerian Breweries brands, Goldberg, Life Continental and ZAGG Energy Drink.
