Amstel Malta Reiterates Support for Super Eagles
Amstel, the premium malt brand and official Malta drink of the Super Eagles has reaffirmed its support for the senior national team notwithstanding their outster from the 2018 World Cup tagged Russia 2018 as it yielded to a 2-1 defeat by La Albiceleste of Argentina.
Nigeria’s third game of the mundial against Argentina started well with the Super Eagles trying hard to penetrate the defence of their opponents. The Argentines however, stood their ground and were able to keep the Super Eagles at bay. The first goal of the match came from Lionel Messi who was able to get the ball past goalkeeper Francis Uzoho to the back of the net.
This is the fifth time Nigeria would be defeated by archrivals Argentina at the quadrennial event. This leaves Nigeria with no additional point to enable a progression to the next stage.
Reacting to the outcome of the game, portfolio manager, non alcoholic drinks, Nigerian Breweries, Ngozi Nkwoji said “The Super Eagles of Nigeria gave their best and despite the result of this competition, we will continue to urge them to greater heights”.
Nigerian Breweries through its premium malt drink – Amstel Malta, entered a partnership agreement with the Nigerian Football Federation as the official malt drink of all the national football teams including the Super Eagles.
