Leading financial institution, Zenith Bank, has commenced the efforts of the Nigerian Super Eagles at the ongoing 2019 African Cup of Nations.

The financial institution, a major sponsor of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), commended the Super Eagles ahead of a Semi final match against Algeria.

The bank charged the team to go for the ultimate price of winning the trophy.

Recall that Nigeria defeated Burundi and Guinea in the group stage to qualify for the knockout stage of the competition.

Subsequently, the Super Eagles defeated the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon 3-2 in the round of 16 and Bafana Bafana of South Africa 2-1 in the quarterfinal.

Expressing delight at the team’s progress, Group Managing Director of Zenith Bank, Ebenezer Onyeagwu, commended the fighting spirit of the Super Eagles, adding that they have displayed the quality of champions.

Mr Onyeagwu noted that to have sent defending champions, Cameroon, out of the competition was good indication of the team’s readiness to win the AFCON.

“The Super Eagles have been amazing so far and we appreciate their efforts at the AFCON tournament in Egypt. After sending out Cameroon, it shows that the team was ready to take over the trophy.

“We believe they can go all the way and bring the trophy home. As an organization, we are going to continue to support the NFF and also ensure we boost the senior national team to get good results at all times for Nigeria,” he said.

Defeating Algeria on Sunday, July 14, will pitch Nigeria against either Senegal or Tunisia in the final.
