Nigeria recorded a fabulous 1:0 win against Egypt in their respective Afcon curtain raiser yesterday after Iheanacho blasted a first half effort home.
I wanted to witness 5 quality and memorable matches from the Super Eagles in this tournament and they delivered the goods in yesterday’s heartwarming victory against Egypt.
So 4 more games to go. Anything outside that remains Dreamland for me. Based on the beautiful nature and ultimate outcome of yesterday’s game, I have no doubt that the Super Eagles will deliver the expected minimum number of games for me with the fabulous and entertainment outlook that I am expecting.
On a slightly different but related note, my interest and love for “table soccer” has grown in leaps and bounds following how Eguavoen brought to life his YouTube tabular illustration in a most ruthless and refreshing manner against Egypt. 🙂
The greatest accomplishment yesterday was how Eguavoen corralled the Super Eagles fans around what he is trying to achieve. Finally we are starting to feel invested in the national team again.
We felt carried along with the direction of travel of the Super Eagles. The emotional bond with the national team has been resurrected and the brand identity that we associate with our much beloved brand is revived.
Well done Eguavoen and well done Super Eagles!
We love you all.
