Nigeria goal keeper, Vincent Enyeama who made a point blank save immediately after Nigeria’s opener has sensationally declared he had no clue how he pulled off an incredible point blank save.
“I don’t know how I did it, the Angels of God were behind me and caused my hands to be in the right place to stop the ball”.
Asked if he was worried going into the last 10 and it was still goalless “not at all, this is football and I have come to understand that as long as the game is on anything is still possible so I kept urging the guys to press on. Fortunately we got there in the end”.
The Nigerian players were obviously delighted with the win but the Nigerian press contingent and Nigerians all over the the internet sites and blogs seemed unimpressed with the qualification and have been very critical of the team’s play.
Already, the consensus is that this present Nigerian side is not good enough to get past the Ivorians who have been rampant so far in the tournament.
It is very hard to figure out who has a more difficult job between the Nigerian President or Stephen Keshi in terms of pleasing Nigerians.
