The committee settled on that slogan after putting out three options through the FIFA World Cup Twitter handle and asking fans to vote.
‘The Spirit of Unity’, ‘The Dream of One Team, the Heartbeat of Millions!!!’, and the ‘The Wings of African Pride’ were the three choices presented.
After voting, ‘The WIngs of African Pride’ had 48% votes, ‘The Dream of One Team, the Heartbeat of Millions!!!’ had 28% of the votes while only 24% voted for ‘The Spirit of Unity’.
The ‘The Wings of African Pride’ which was voted for will be on the Hyundai bus which will be provided for the Super Eagles.
