Celebrities drum support for Eagles

15 November 2013, 18:27

Calabar - Movie star Osita Iheme and music maestro Dare Art Alade were among celebrities already in Calabar ready to support the Super Eagles against Ethiopia in  2014 World Cup qualifier on Saturday.

Also, former Super Eagles skipper, Nwankwo Kanu, who helped Nigeria to its only Olympics gold medal win in football, way back at the Atlanta ’96 Olympics is present to motivate the team.

Kanu was not alone in the drive to make the Super Eagles one of the best national teams in the world. Sultry voiced R&B top act, Dare Art Alade, was also on ground to give support to the national team, donning his green and white national colours ahead of Saturday’s duel. He was even at the last training session to ginger the team.

Eagles Media Officer, Ben Alaiya, quotes Assistant Coach Dan ‘The Bull’ Amokachi as saying that there are many more music and Nollywood stars who are already in the city just for the World Cup qualifier and the team appreciates their support and will not disappoint.  “Certainly, we won’t disappoint them and Nigerians”, he said.
