"As a frontline corporate promoter and keen follower of the game of football, IGI is fully persuaded that the Super Eagles will make Nigeria proud in South Africa.

"We said it at the onset of the competition that notwithstanding the initial faltering start, the Eagles will eventually get their acts together and soar to reckoning. Every match vindicates our position".

Olowude praised the Eagles for their spectacular quarter-finals performance last Sunday during which they beat favourites Cote d' Ivoire and progressed to the semi finals.

He called on Nigerians to stand solidly behind the Eagles as they get set to soar high above Mali into the final.

Olowude commended the players for their determination and also the officials, members of the Supporters Club as well as Nigerians resident in South Africa for their unwavering support for the team.

"Keep the fire burning and support the Eagles get to the final and fly home with the Nations Cup," he added.
