National U-23 team, Dream Team VI and the female national team, Super Falcons have been advised by telecommunications giant, Globacom, to work assiduously towards qualifying for the final of the tournament.
While the U-23 Eagles who topped Group B ahead of Senegal will face Burkina Faso, the Super Falcons who surprisingly lost to Cote d’Ivoire in their last group match and came second in Group A, lock horns with rivals, Banyana Banyana of South Africa who topped Group B.
Globacom saluted the fighting spirit and doggedness of the Eagles which saw them trouncing Ghana in the first match and forcing the Senegalese to a draw in the second match, adding that victory against Burkina Faso is a must.
The country’s biggest supporter of football said: “We urge the team to remain focused on the task ahead. We believe that victory is achievable and we stand by you as ever, believing fervently that you will do Nigeria proud.”
The company also advised the technical crew to use the fittest players who can withstand the pressure associated with matches of this magnitude.
“We encourage all the players and coaching crew of the Dream Team and Super Falcons to remain determined to excel throughout the 90-minute duration of the matches,” the company said.
Globacom is the major partner of the Nigeria Football Federation and official telecommunications sponsor of the national teams.
