Nigerian Super Eagles start their African Cup of Nations challenge next Monday. As far as I am concerned, we have a great team though we are not sure of their cohesiveness. Despite that fact, I still remain very optimistic of singing victory song at the end of the competition in Ghana. Below are some statistics that I hold on to. Call me over enthusiastic —- I do not care 🙂
A certain man ruled us for 8 years and we won no cup (1985-1993) â€“ Gen Ibrahim Babangida
A few months after, another man took over and we won the U-17 World Cup (Japan â€™93)
One year later â€“ we won the African Nations cup in Tunisia â€˜94
In 2007, Obasanjo left the seat of power after 8 years without a Cup.
A few months after â€“ Yar Adua became President and we won the U-17 World Cup.
One year later â€“ We are playing in the African Nations cup (U get?)
Nigeria won the CAN for the first time in 1980 (A leap year)
14 years later in Tunis â€“ we made it two (Another leap year)
14 years later in Ghana ????? (Another leap year)
God bless the Super Eagles of Nigeria ……… Up Eagles!!!
