Star Lager Beer continued its support for the Nigerian national team at the Super Eagles Dome in Lagos, as the squad faced Argentina in their final Group D game at the Russia 2018 World Cup on Tuesday in St Petersburg.
The Dome hosted thousands of passionate fans in an atmosphere of exciting football, music and games as they cheered the team all night, hoping for a positive result.
Among the Nigerians cheering the Super Eagles were former Nigerian World Cup stars Okechukwu Uche, Ben Iroha, Ike Shorunmu and Tijani Babangida.
Even though the game ended in a victory for the Argentines who ended up joining Croatia from Group D in the Round of 16, viewers all over the world acknowledged the Nigerian team’s resilience, paying homage to their bravery and exciting style of play.
Speaking after the game, Abayomi Abidakun, Senior Brand Manager Star Lager Beer, Nigerian Breweries Plc, said:

We will continue to support this great team and keep rewarding the fans with amazing experiences even in the days ahead.”
