NFF thanks SuperSport for funding Super Eagles trip to Ndola

Lagos - The Nigeria Football Federation has thanked SuperSport for funding the cost of the return trip of the Super Eagles’ 2018 World Cup qualifier at Zambia.

Nigeria beat Zambia 2-1 in Ndola to begin their quest to feature in Russia on a positive note.

Aware of the challenges at hand, major partner Supersport paid the charter cost of the 148 –seater ARIK Air plane that conveyed the delegation to and from Ndola, in addition to paying ticket refunds for the

“The gesture from Supersport was heartwarming, but we have always known the organization to be that responsive and of noble intentions. We thank our other sponsors as well, because at all times we must praise them for being there.” NFF president Amaju Pinnick said in a statement.

The NFF also appreciated the federal government and other sponsors.

Two first –half goals by England –based Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho steered the three –time African champions to a 2-1 win, three precious points and early leadership of the so-called ‘Group of Death’ in the World Cup qualifying race.

Pinnick said the NFF and the team have put behind the victory in Zambia and already fully focused on next month’s Matchday 2 clash with the Fennecs of Algeria, who like Nigeria played at the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cup finals.

“We have three points and lead the group, but we do not have the World Cup ticket yet. We must keep our heads. Picking three points in the encounter with Algeria next month is paramount.”

“We also want to use this opportunity to appeal to other corporate organizations to join and assist the NFF with more financial support to help the Super Eagles land safely at Russia 2018, as Government alone cannot afford the huge cost of prosecuting these games, with so many other sectors in need of support.”
