Why Super Eagles partnered with Google- Tinubu

Board member of the Nigeria Football Federation and chairman of its marketing committee, Deji Tinubu says they decided to partner with Google because they thought they national team should get to the homes of the fans.

For some time now, fans of the national team have been able to interact with players through the YouTube and google plus and Tinubu told naijafootball247.com that it was something they had to do.

"I think we just felt that we needed to show the Eagles a bit more to the outside world and a bit more than you do not see on TV or the pages of newspapers.

"We wanted to show the other side of the Eagles, like who is the jester in the team, who is the prayer warrior of the team, people need to know how the Eagles relax, the bonding in the team. It is actually a relaxed thing. We needed to close the big divide between the players and their fans," Tinubu said.

Deji Tinubu added that they got a hundred percent support from the NFF when the idea came up though he admitted that some players found it strange.

"It's just banter, just to peep into their private lives a little bit without actually intruding and we really got full support from the NFF even though some of the players actually found it strange at first."

Fans can follow the Eagles on www.google.com/+SuperEagles and www.youtube.com/NigeriaSuperEagles for exclusive updates.
