Udofia promised Eagles’ $20,000 per goal


Businessman Aka Udofia has offered the Super
Eagles the sum of $20,000 for every goal scored
in today’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying
cracker against the Indomitable Lions of
Cameroon in Yaounde.

The young and ebullient businessman from
Akwa Ibom State made the promise as he
briefly greeted players and officials inside the
chartered ARIK Bombadier CRJ 1000 aircraft
just before take –off at the Ibom International
Airport, Uyo yesterday.

“I am a very good friend of the NFF President,
Mr. Amaju Pinnick, and I am happy that I am
here in time to see you guys before take –off
for Yaounde.
“I watched the game against the Cameroonians
here in Uyo on Friday and I am sure you have
the ability to conquer them again in their own
territory. I promise to reward you with $20,000
for every goal scored in Yaounde,” Udofia
announced to the applause of players and
officials.
Three –time champions Nigeria play Cameroon
this afternoon in Yaounde in a Day 4 encounter
of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Africa qualifying
race, with five points clear of second –placed
Zambia and seven ahead of third –placed
Cameroon.

Meanwhile, NFF President Amaju Pinnick has
called for even more passion and commitment
from the Super Eagles as the Nigerian
delegation landed in Yaounde yesterday
afternoon.
On Thursday last week, the NFF supremo and
CAF Executive Committee member charged the
players to approach Friday’s leg in Uyo with
passion and to play with their heart, soul and
spirit – the players obliged with a near –
incredible 4-0 bashing of reigning African
champions Cameroon on the turf of Godswill
Akpabio International Stadium.
The Nigerian delegation touched down at the
Aeroport Nsimalen-Yaounde at about 1.27pm
yesterday, and Pinnick again told the players
not to take their feet off the pedal as the race
to Russia continues apace today at the Stade
Omnisports Ahmadou Ahidjo.

“The Cameroonians will come at us with
everything on Monday, knowing they have to
get a result and with anger born out of their
humiliation in Uyo. That is why we cannot
afford to relax yet. On Monday, you must play
with even greater passion and show even more
spirit than you did in Uyo to come out with a
result here.
