Pepsi, official sponsor of the just-concluded African Cup of Nations hosted by Angola, has congratulated the Super Eagles of Nigeria for winning the bronze medal at the championship.|
Mr. Mazen Al Masri, Marketing Manager, PepsiCo International, said that in a competition, winners and losers will surely emerge, adding that Nigerians should congratulate the Super Eagles for being among the top three teams that were honoured in Angola.
â€œThe 2010 African Cup of Nations has come and gone. Sixteen best football countries in Africa participated and for Nigeria to come out third is worth celebrating, knowing that some other strong football nations in Africa crashed out before the semi-final stage of the championshipâ€, Mr. Al Masri said.
According to him, the performance of the team in Angola should form the foundation for a better preparation for the World Cup in June. Suggesting also that some players from Kano Pillars and Heartland FC who played till the latter stages of the CAF Club Champions League which Pepsi also sponsored can be drafted to the Super Eagles to fight for shirts for the World Cup.
