Nigeria’s premium malt brand and official malt drink of the Super Eagles Amstel Malta, has congratulated the team after a stunning second outing at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia.
The 2018 edition of the world’s biggest football tournament kicked off on Thursday, June 14 and got underway with 32 teams competing for the ultimate prize.
Nigeria’s national team, the Super Eagles, had their second outing at the Volgograd Stadium as they played against the Strákarnir okkar of Iceland.
The Group D match had generated positive reactions from millions of Nigerian fans across the world. With Iceland – the tournament first-timers -facing the Mikel Obi-led Eagles, the match provided nail-biting excitement as it ended in a 2-0 win for Nigeria.
This is the first time Nigeria will play against Iceland in any competition. The goals which were scored by Ahmed Musa, have earned Nigeria three points putting the Super Eagles in a comfortable position to play the next game against Argentina.
Amstel Malta, along with millions of Nigerians, has expressed joy and satisfaction at Nigeria’s match.
The brand, which signed a partnership deal with the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF) in February 2018 as the official malt drink of the national teams, including the Super Eagles, conveyed its excitement alongside Nigerians all over the world, as Nigeria recorded their first win in the tournament.
Reacting to the victory, Portfolio Manager, Nigerian Breweries Non-alcoholic Drinks, Ngozi Nkwoji, said: “Amstel Malta believes in the Super Eagles, the best is yet to come”.
Amstel Malta is a proud supporter of the Nigerian Football Federation.
