Super eagles of 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 and declared that the angels of God were behind him.
Enyeama, who captained the team as skipper Joseph Yobo was benched, said, "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".
Two penalty goals from Chelsea attacker, Victor Moses gave enabled Nigeria to qualify into the quarter finals of the ongoing AFCON 2013 and are expected to play tournament favourites, Ivory Coast in the next round
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.
