Former Super Eagles captain, Austin Jay Jay Okocha has said that he was sad over the team’s early exit at the just concluded Africa Nations Cup in Cameroun.


Speaking with journalists in Lagos at the weekend, when leading sports and digital entertainment company, BetKing, rewarded two of its customers with brand new SUVs as part of its AFKON campaign, Okocha said:

“I felt so sad that the Super Eagles was knocked out in the round of 16 in Cameroun. It has never happened for a long time in Nigeria’s football.”


Okocha, a brand ambassador to BetKing, however said that he is optimistic the Super Eagles would turn the disappointment in Cameroun to joy in the Qatar 2022 World Cup playoff against Ghana.



The BetKing campaign, tagged #ThatAFKONFeeling, was launched in January as part of the company’s efforts to celebrate African football and reward its customers during the African Cup of Nations in Cameroun.


The car presentation ceremony, which took place at Ikoyi, Lagos, on Sunday, had key stakeholders in attendance, including Okocha, BetKing and KingMakers executives.
