Nigeria is back in contention for second round qualification from group D after defeating Iceland 2-0
in an exciting encounter on June 22, 2018, thanks to the resurgence of the Super Eagles, and the
motivation from Energy giant, Aiteo.
Aiteo’s motivation comes in form of promise of a financial reward of $50, 000 dollars (N18 million) for
every goal unanswered by their opponents.
Owing to this, energy giant, and premium optimum sponsors, AITEO have expressed their happiness about
Eagles deserved victory and have immediately re-echoed their promise of splashing out the sum of
$50,000 to the team for every unreturned goal being scored.
And being that the team happened to have scored two goals, without any being returned, this will leave
the team carting home a whopping $100,000 (about N36mn), from AITEO.
Perhaps no Nigerian player remembers this fact more than Ahmed Musa, the man of the match who netted a
brace against Iceland. Or could it be that during the half time break that changed everything, Coach
Gernot Rohr reminded them of Aiteo’s promise?
