Nigeria Breweries’  brands lend support for Super Eagles in destiny-shaping tie with Sierra Leone



After propelling the Super Eagles to a face-saving 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 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 their  matchday 5 fixtures on Sunday.

The Super Eagles, though with a match at hand on Sunday are currently second on the  Group A log.

But avoiding a defeat will see them back on top. A draw will see them at par with interim group leaders who have 10 points from five matches as against Nigeria’s nine from four matches.

A win on Sunday will settle the group leadership and qualify the Super Eagles for the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations finals holding next January in Cote d’Ivoire.


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 qualifying game with the already eliminated Sao Tome & Principe.


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 aspire to be in Cote 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.”

Now going against an even more desperate Sierra Leonean 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 La Liga, 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.
