The Chairman of Air Peace Airlines, Allen Onyema has made a Promise of Cash Reward to the Nigerian Super Eagles if they win their second Fifa World Cup Qualifying game against Cape Verde on Tuesday, September 7th.
The Franco-German men began their campaign with a 2-0 victory over Liberia on Friday, at the Teslim Balogun Stadium in Lagos. With the Leicester star man Kelechi Ihenacho bagging a first half brace.
Rohr is expecting a more difficult encounter in Cape Verde due to the absence of some of the players who had to leave because of the UK government’s strict regulations on Red List countries, with Nigeria travelling to Cape Verde for their next World Cup qualifier.
“We knew some of our players have to leave after the match and they had to do well before leaving because they cannot go to Cape Verde.
“We scored our two goals in the first half and we were calm and played our football.
“But under difficult conditions, because after the rain, the pitch was not easy to play for the two teams but we had to adapt under the circumstances,” Rohr said.
To boost the team’s morale, the chairman of Air Peace addressed the team as they departed for Cape Verde on Monday morning.
Addressing the team on board, The chairman of Air Peace Airline Allen Oyeama said.
“You won your first match resoundingly, and we expect that the one happening in Cape Verde in 24hours time will not be different.”
“You’re carrying on your young shoulders the aspirations and the hopes of a Nation. You must help us in restoring hope to this country. Nigeria is a great country with so much potentials to achieve. We are yet to get there. We may have our differences but we love ourselves.
“Because of this, if you win this match, I am going to give the team 20 million naira on arrival. This will serve as a stepping stone in unifying our Nation. Go there and die for the country. Thank you and God bless you.” He concluded.
