The Godswill Akpabio Stadium, nicknamed the Nest of Champions, has been described as one of Africa's most modern football stadiums because of its aesthetically-pleasing design and this was once more confirmed by Alhaji Ahmed Mgoyi, the leader of the Tanzanian delegation for Saturday's match against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
However it was the action of the Egyptian match officials for Saturday's Nigeria versus Tanzania Africa Cup of Nations qualifier which took everyone by surprise when they came out to do some stretching exercises inside the mainbowl.
The Egyptians, apparently awestruck by the beauty of the stadium, excitedly took turns to snap selfies and group pictures on the sidelines.
They were also seen looking around the expansive stadium as they walked and jogged around the pitch.
