On Sunday 10th of February the Nigerian national team the Super Eagles beat Burkina Faso to claim their third African cup of nations’ victory. The country has been in jubilant mood since then and Nollywood stars are not left out. Today Nollywoodgossip spoke with heavyweights in the Nigerian entertainment industry and below are what they told Delia Innoma (Live Online With Delia).
Great feat in view of the fact that a lot of us doubted at initial stage, now is the time to harness the gains of this victory. The team has to be kept together but still infuse new players; we still have the WC qualifiers and the Confederation cup waiting. Let’s get back to work quickly. It’s an evolving team.
It is great to have this feeling of triumph in football after so many years. They played much better during the Ivorian and Mali matches than they did in the final though. I think that Keshi should continue with his strategies and build up a much stronger team that can cause real upsets in the upcoming confederation cup. He has done a great job. Congratulations to him and the boys.
I didn’t watch the match. But I already knew the cup is ours. Yes, my confidence was that large, because Keshi’s Eagles fly strong and high. I love u Nigeria!!!
I knew Nigeria was going to carry the cup and I told my wife, so after the game my wife said “Congrats My Prophet. We made it.”
