‘Let’s Do It Again’ Team Praises Super Eagles For AFCON Heroics, Thanks Nigerians

With the conclusion of the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’Ivoire, organizers of the ‘Let’s Do It Again’ campaign for the Super Eagles of Nigeria have expressed utmost respect and gratitude to the team for their gallant displays.

Three-time African champions Nigeria on Sunday evening were beaten 2-1 by hosts Cote d’Ivoire in the final of the 34th edition of the tournament but not many had given the team the chance to reach the latter stages ostensibly due to the stuttering start to the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying fixtures.

Toyosi Oyetunji, Senior Partner of Sportdom Limited, said the campaign is a call to make Nigerians believe in the Super Eagles (and indeed other National Teams) once more.

“Our objective is to revive the nostalgic enthusiasm for Nigeria football, engaging both the young and the old, with a particular focus on the Gen Z demographic.

“To amplify this message, we engaged a plethora of celebrities and influencers to galvanize support and convey the message that every Nigerian is an integral part of the Super Eagles’ journey.

“Big kudos to the Super Eagles for their silver medal-winning effort, which is commendable as 24 teams started the race.

“Big kudos also to all Nigerians, including the Minister of Sports and the chieftains of Nigeria Football Federation who believed in the campaign and gave it oxygen and drive.”

On his part, project coordinator Abubakar Umar Danladi said:

“The Super Eagles did a marvelous job wading through the group phase, conquering subsequent challenges and getting to the Final.

“In the Final match, we were up against so many odds, hurdles and obstacles as we faced the host nation. In reality, there were more than 80,000 spectators in that arena and it would have been a daunting task for any team.

“We praise the Eagles for their second-place finish, and their efforts surely were not in vain as Nigeria produced the Player of the Tournament in William Ekong. We also had three players in the competition’s Best Eleven, which was no mean feat.
