All the football viewing centers in Kubwa, including NINA hotel phase iv, are patriotically agog for Nigeria’s AFCON match against the Djurtus of Guinea-Bissau starting by 8pm today.
Some of the persons our correspondent spoke to, said that the match is a mere formality for Nigeria.
Nigeria with two wins, 6 points and 4 goals, had already qualified from Group D.
Musa while speaking with us, warned that AFCON has shown that there are no minnows again in African football. He cited the defeat of “almighty Ghana” yesterday by Comoros and prayed that Supper Eagles should not underrate Guinea-Bissau.
Nigeria with 6 points from 2 games is sitting on top of Group D (defeated Egypt 1-0 and Sudan 3-1)
Guinea-Bissau has also played the same number of games, with only one point to show for it; they drew with Sudan and lost to Egypt.
Another sports enthusiast, Ikechukwu, said that Guinea-Bissau will be a formidable opponent, as they are playing for national pride and not to top the group.
He wishes Nigeria luck and predicted that Nigeria will score two goals to seal her position on top of Group D ahead of Egypt that has a match against Sudan at the same time.
The match comes up by 8pm.
