    No problem Iheanacho, all praises due to God almighty. I did not believed that the whole world still love us in football until I watched the highlight of the match Nigeria vs Iceland on YouTube last night. Nigeria is a great nation. I’m proud to be a Nigerian.

    Even, I have never heard or seen an opponent to supports their rival team to win against another team. A video posted by Channels TV on YouTube, showing Argentina’s fans painted the Nigeria Flag colour on their bodies because, they wanted Nigeria to beat Iceland so that they can beat us on Tuesday. What a funny scene lol.

    Sorry, God has answered our prayers and your prayers to favoured Nigeria on Tuesday and particularly in Russia. I’m so happy that “Iheanacho said It too when they interviewed him yesterday after the match.

    “He says, Argentina wants Nigeria to win against Iceland so that they would beat Nigeria. So they sure to beat us on Tuesday? Mmm… interesting lol.

    Can’t wait to see Nigeria sending Argentina packing and they would be shocked comes on Tuesday in sha Allah. God bless Nigeria!!!
