Eaglets Get Cash Boost To Beat Gabon

A good hearted Libreville-based Nigerian businessman, Chief George
Uche, has offered a handsome cash reward to the Golden Eaglets if they
win next weekend’s African U-17 Championship finale qualifying
match against Gabon.
Uche, who owns a thriving freight business in the Gabonese capital, said
he was impressed with the performance of the team despite the odds
against them before their 1-2 loss to Gabon on Sunday, hence the
reason behind the dinner reception he hosted before their departure.
Apart from doling out $500 to the players, Uche has pledged the sum of
One Million French Francs (about Three Hundred Thousand Naira) to the
team should they make good their promise to beat Gabon and pick one of
the tickets to Niger 2015 Championship.
Prince Udofia, Golden Eaglets’ coordinator has therefore, commended
Uche’s magnanimity, while calling on eminent Nigerians as well as
Corporate Nigeria to rally behind the team in their quest to qualify
for the CAN championship.
“Chief Uche has really done well and we want to thank him from the
bottom of our heart,” he said. “This is an exemplary conduct and we
want to believe this would ginger other well-to-do Nigerians to come
and motivate the players in the crucial game against Gabon.
“This is an opportunity to remind Nigerians that the U-17 team are the defending World Champions, and they can only defend the trophy by
first qualifying for the tournament in Niger, as such this is the time
to motivate the players,” he noted.
