Guinness has justified it’s support in cheering the Super Eagles to victory after beating the Elephants of Cote d’ivoire 2-1 in the quarter finals in South Africa.
Speaking on activities around the ‘Fly With the Eagles Campaign’, Marketing and Innovations Manager, Guinness Nigeria Plc, Austin Ufomba remarked that ”This feat is a reflection of the good wishes of Nigerians for the Super Eagles at the AFCON 2013“. He further reinforced the commitment of Guinness to encourage massive support for the Super Eagles.
It will be recalled that Guinness Nigeria Plc has been rewarding the Super Eagles with $5,000 for every goal scored during the competition after their first two draws earlier.
The Super Eagles face Mali on Wednesday for their semi- final clash.
