Today, the eagles will fly over the elephants, and bring a CUP home. In the sky, the eagles rule. On the land, the lions rule, but the eagles have already overcome the lions in the competition. The eagles are respected in most African cultures. In short, you can ascend into the Ikoro (the room-size wooden drum) in ancestral Igbo only by bringing an eagle or a leopard home; no other animal qualifies. And by that logic, eagles are superior to elephants.
So, the Super Eagles of Nigeria should fly over the Elephants of Ivory Coast. Go Super Eagles and bring smiles to Nigerians as many mourn the tragic exit of one of this generation’s finest bankers – and many many struggle under a miry clay of an economic avalanche.
Inspire a new generation of footballers and make many Lookmans, Victors, Ekongs, Nwabalis, etc. The goalkeeper has gone how many games now without conceding a non-penalty goal? Credit the defense and the offense. We want them to deliver today. As that happens, I want to commend the Nigerian government. Yes, for a very long time, I did not read that our allowances have not been paid, etc. Well done government for motivating the boys as agreed.
