It is the quarter finals of the Orange African Nations Championship, ( CHAN Orange ) SOUTH AFRICA 2014. The venue is Cape Town Stadium and Nigeria is being mauled by Morrocco (3-0). Technical team and fans in the field all looking forlorn and wondering why Keshi (Nigerian Coach) fielded the same team that lost against Mali.
Nigerians watching at home were all over the social media complaining and being sad. It’s the 49th minute (after half -time) and boom.. Nigeria gets a goal in 3-1, hope for Nigeria. 55th minute and it’s another goal for Nigeria.. POW! game on. attempts to get an equalizer for Nigeria were futile until wht do you know? it’s the 90th minute and boom pow, it’s 3-3.
It’s the second half of the extra time and the amazing man of the match Christianus Ejike Uzoenyi creates the opportunity for a goal which Abubakar Ibrahim utilizes and gets the ball in the net. BOOM BOOM POW! Nigeria gets ahead, 4-3.
It’s 124th minute and the referee blows his whistle to signal the end of the game… who would have thought it? Nigeria came from 3-0 down to win the game without going into penalties. simply magnificient … Nigeria is having a good footballing year… congrats to coach Stephen Keshi and the entire team.
