After their agonising 2-1 loss to Algeria who won the game with a last-minute freekick from star man Riyad Mahrez, Nigeria had to face Tunisia in the Losers’ Final on Wednesday, July 17.
An Odion Ighalo goal just three minutes into the game was enough for the Super Eagles to confirmed themselves as the third-best team in Africa wit a 1-0 win over the Cartage Eagles.
It was this feat that the Star Lager, one of the sponsors of the Super Eagles is celebrating Nigeria’s senior men’s national team.
"We are indeed proud of our stars. The Super Eagles did us proud despite not making it to the final. We all saw that they gave their best and Star Lager was solidly behind, unfortunately, we missed out on the title narrowly,” Portfolio Manager – National Premium Brands, Sarah Agha said in a statement.
“We congratulate the NFF, the team, and all Nigerians, we are confident that there is a bright future ahead of the Super Eagles.”
Since the beginning of the continental football showpiece in Egypt, Star Lager has been making the AFCON a worthwhile experience for its loyal customers and passionate football fans with its Shine On Naija Campaign.
In selected cities across the country, fans have been enjoying the continent's biggest football showpiece in a carnival-like atmosphere.
Also, hundreds of fans have been rewarded with mouthwatering prizes from the Official Beer of the Super Eagles, Star Lager.
