Against unimaginable odds the Super Eagles yesterday won the African Cup of Nations…19 years since their last win – and to them I say a huge congratulations for achieving this feat. After all the jubilation the big question now is what are we to expect in Nigeria:
- Fireworks being set off over the next couple of nights
- All Nigerian newspapers carrying a picture of the team celebrating the win
- Lost office hours resulting from staff conversing about the epic final
- Hypertensive Nigerians finally settling to watch the full match replay (which they refused to watch earlier)
- A surge in the population of new-born babies in November (or perhaps sale of birth control pills)
- In that same month a rise in the number of male babies named ‘Sunday’ (regardless of the actual day they were born)
- Abuse of bragging rights over the next 2 years, to the annoyance of every other African country.
- A renewed sense of patriotism displayed with Nigerian mini flags sticking out from vehicles.
- Stephen Keshi will be asked to lead us to qualify in the next World Cup
These are merely speculations but only time will tell if I’m wrong…and I doubt that 🙂
Thank you Mabu and thanks for stopping by!
That is extraordinarily exciting news! I am sure that Nigeria ground to a halt the minute that final ball was kicked/thrown/batted over the/into the final goal! (can you tell I have NO idea what sport this is?). 🙂
LOL. It’s Football or if you prefer, Soccer 🙂
What about the usual? Fights, deaths, stab exchange, etc. Those usually happen to you know
Well, I can tell you that the atmosphere in Lagos is calm – business as usual. This kind of news usually unites everyone, in my opinion.
Yes o. Well said.
i’ll just add Rumour about the Cup (missing or stolen).
Lol. It’s possible.
