My world cup narration: unforeseen reactions!

 

Check my first and second narration out before you proceed, if you haven’t already.

 

I was very sad yesterday when Nigeria lost, and consequently couldn’t gather myself together for a blog post until now.

Basically, today’s post is about how scattered-all-over-the-place my emotions were yesterday.

I also didn’t bother to check through some interesting things on my timeline: I just logged off.

>> it was that bad.

 

So, let’s just go ahead to my social media posts:

  • I want to say “Thank you Germany”, but my mind keeps straying to the Argentines and how they’re currently planning to use us to shine and come-back…
    Oluwa, biko, help us o!
    Someone please help us tell the Eagles to win their next match, biko…

>> Let’s start with this throw back: the day Germany won (and to think they’ve also gone… sobs some). This post was on the 23rd: I knew it very well that the Argentines were going to fight very hard… I was however hoping that Nigerians were equally prepared. To a large extent, Nigerians were, to be honest, it’s just that it didn’t work out for them.

>> if I were to be a bit analytical, I’d say that we should have had more ‘strikers’ with Musa and Iheanacho at the fore (amongst other things), but, is there really any need for more analysis?

  • Dear Lord, we are not “dying there”: we are WINNING THERE!
    Our boys are making it!
    What are they coming back for when their ‘mates’ are still ‘in’ the World Cup?
    Our prayers are answered in Jesus’s name.

>> I prayed hard o! I hoped! I really wanted them there, especially for their own good and expertise: they would have played against great teams, tried out their skills and learnt a lot: they’d have returned way better and more confident. But now, we’re back to square one, and we’d have to keep at it until we get it. All the best to them.

  • Within the next couple of hours, I want to be saying many thanks: “Thank you, Iwobi!” “Thank you, Shehu!” “Thank you, Ndidi!” “Thank you, Iheanacho!” “Thank you, Moses!” “Thank you, Mikel!”… “Thank you, SuperEagles!” I want to be bursting with a combination of all the positive emotions of victory! Yes, we can! It’s a Blessed Super Eagle’s day: Let’s do this!

>> how I wish this came to pass… sobs a bit … I however think our boys are good players regardless: a little tact here, a little pruning there, and we’re good to be great. Musa for instance had improved a lot in confidence from 2014, and if Ndidi adds a little more tact and apt calculations to his shots, they’d be very clean goals… All the best to them still… And I didn’t even get to say, “thank you Moses”; I was too alarmed at his somersault to utter any word, and I don’t know why. Thank you, Moses , please!

  • I’m fine, in case you’re asking: I’m just not bursting out in jubilation yet…
    I think our boys are doing better though… I pray we win… One quick question : was Iheanacho trying to get us a free kick / penalty there? And lest I forget, Di Maria is a better player than your man crush whatever.

>> Yes, Di Maria is a better player. The other one is overrated in my estimation.

  • It’s like Victor Moses has been practicing this Somersault for a long time?!

>> this was before the sadness erupted… and it seemed Moses had been waiting to perform this particular somersault for a long time.

  • And for the first time in my life, I set out with all the ‘motions to properly fan a football club, and get heart broken as a result…
    Just send money to my bank account, it will help me feel better…
    *dabs eyes*

>> this was too painful, and is a good reason why am not a football league fan. Plus, no one sent money yet. You can redeem the situation. Let me give you my account details, please.

  • I really wish we had this: our boys had improved since their first game!
    Now, they’d be back and watching their colleagues compete for the World Cup?!
    That’s so painful to imagine!

To console myself, I’m postponing teaming/fanning till the next team that plays out Argentina… You can call it hate if you want… Or better still, you can ‘bribe’ me to team with/fan your fav team: but your bribe needs to carry weight, and it better not be Argentina.

>> I really felt bad for the boys. It’s back to square one for them, and I really wished they had lasted a while longer for their own good. No experience is as good as the world cup, for a footballer. It tries them and makes them better, now the boys have missed out till another time… sad And I’m still not team Argentina, not even for Di Maria’s sake.

  • So we got to wear our celebrity jersey just once? So many painful things…

>> so painfull… although I saw some (oyibo) fan wearing it during the Serbia/Brazil match… I was like, “see our jersey o”, lol.

  • I knew there was a problem when Shehu spelt Match as “March” on one of his recent Instagram posts…
    And to think he was my SuperEagle ‘crush’

>> when the little things started to matter, lol

  • To those happy for Argentina/Messi right now on my TL, I am side-eyeing you with all my heart.
    Why rub it in? Couldn’t you wait until tomorrow?

>> at this point, I couldn’t believe those that were hailing our opposition! Like, how could they? Nawa o.

  • However, Nigerians that bought this new celebrity jersey have made it as the real MVPs…
    What will y’all be doing now with your very nice jerseys?

>> I would have felt worse if I had bought this jersey: it’d just be reminding me of all that could have been… sniffs

  • I want to ask Arsenal fans a sincere question though… but today’s not about them…

>> Let me just celebrate these group of people… they are usually great with this kind of situation…

And then, I returned to chill with the World Cup, lol:

Neymar is just too extra with his falls: giving us different versions: lie flat for five minutes on the floor today, perform turn and roll level 10 tomorrow… which kain sef! 😀😀😀

Yes, I know I said I wasn’t going to watch again after yesterday, but look at us now: lol

Lest I forget, I stand with the Germans today in their FIFA-loss: I really do: they were supposed to be my next fav… but, look at us: In fact, look at me- hopes being dashed left and right!

Right now, I’m in between low-key rooting for Brazil and high-key being indifferent, cos it may seem as though this Cup is not about being nice to my emotions…
Anyway…

>> someone suggested I stand with the Mexicans instead, that they’d go far… I might even stand with the Croatians: I know an unexpected team will win this cup; I’m almost convinced of this.

In conclusion, I’m looking forward to England Vs Belgium, and to be honest, I think England had it very easy with Panama… let’s see how tomorrow goes though.

 

You? How are you taking in this World Cup, or you cannot be bothered at all?

Engage me in the comment section, or via Twitter or Instagram, and I’ll respond.

Ciao!

My world cup narration: today’s match

You may want to catch my other narration before you proceed….

First, a few interesting things from my social media timeline:

My new crush: MUSA

>>Musa surely got himself a lot of love today… but in the Nigerian way, I hope it lasts.

“Someone should help me inform MTN that we scored 2 goals not 1”

>> MTN also sent me that annoying text. This brother wasn’t having it though.

“His full name is Amadi chiMUSAram from Umunnachi, Dunukofia, Anambra Central. Popularly known as Ahmed Musa.
Nwanne m o!”

>> Ndi Igbo have already resonated with Musa in a great way: “ChiMUSAram” should mean “God birthed for me”: ‘Genuises’ everywhere, lol.

“Where is our shaku shaku?!?”

>>I saw just a few Shaku from the players-on-bench, at the end of the match. But none from Musa. Why? He doesn’t know to?

“Nigerian pastors are at work. Over the bar!!”

>> LOOOL

“Henceforth, We play with only one jersey”

>> A lot of people still believe that this jersey worked. How, please? I’m still at a loss.

“Our Tuesday game is key. We need to declare a fast. Lol. Nigeria”

>> Very key!!! I can’t imagine how very ready Argentina is already! But we can, yes we can! We can also like to fast, anything for the win, lol (no lol)!

 

Then, my comments (I sure did put out a lot of words today!):

I first started with the call for prayers:

Please, let’s take a minute to pray for our goal keeper: that guy seems very dodgy: coordinated now, and uncoordinated a minute later- could it be a function of his 19years though?
pray up guys

And while at it, let’s pray in Wisdom to the minds of our strikers: the wisdom to run and score regardless of Mikel and Moses- cos it may seem as though someone erroneously told them that these two are that great (we should find this person and judge him/her though).

Let us also give thanks that our defence is good- at least, something to thank God for.

Now, we have about 4+hours to lift our hearts in prayers, because, logically speaking, I don give up…

My prediction though- 0:1 against Nigeria. God please help my unbelief and disappoint this prediction, amen.

Happy Super Eagle’s day to us all.
May we laugh last and best!

>> All of this was based off our last match. But I’m very glad our eagles did better! It may seem as though someone is feeding them with our comments. Please whoever you are, thank you and keep it up.

And then, I flashed back:

In the spirit of Flash-Back-Friday, Brazil has won me over in this World Cup. I must confess though that I haven’t watched a lot of the matches (and teams); but out of the much/few I’ve watched, Brazil gave me all the good vibes, and I’m not even “starring” Neymar right now: Marcelo got me glued!!! Silva? Even the young Jesus, and a lot more that I do not remember their names!
The team is good, and I sincerely pray the get to the finals…

>> Neymar though! Why was he falling like that in the match against Costarica? Nawa o! Oke aruruala, lol.

In other news, who else thinks Senegal’s captain is cute (in a weird way, lol)…
And he feels familiar too. Who knows if we’ve met before? Who knows… Someone help!

Happy Super Eagle’s day once again!

>> For real though, with that Senegal player: for real!

Then, Panic set in:

Why is Shehu not playing na? He did great defending in the other game!
I am tired already, confused… but hopeful…
We no get another choice.

But, I sought hope:

It seems the temperature is in our favour: 30+degrees…
Naija, abeg o!
Na beg we dey!

>> indeed, I thought the weather was in our favour with that temperature.

But, panic won’t let go:

These Iceland-ers are not smiling though!
With their strong body frames!
Oluwa bikokwa!
Fear don dey catch me already!

Well, I enjoyed the match regardless and had a few to say after the first half:

My few things:
We’re doing better, let’s make it great (1).
Only Musa seems to want this win badly, why na? (2).
Sweat on black skin looks fine on my screen; is this a thing? (3)
Uzoho has been alright: God answering our earlier prayers. (4).

The game dikwa nwa intense!
We’re still hopeful.
We need to put more uchu!!!

And Musa scored:

I said it! Only Musa wants this goal…
And he got it, thank God!

After the game:

Na who born this Musa?!
Nigga be on da point!!!

Congratulations Naija, and it was indeed a happy Supper Eagle’s day to us!!!

And I saw Timi jubiliating:

I saw Timi Dakolo there o, lol!

And had a few other things to say:

My other few things:
Musa no fit Shaku? He deserved some good Shaku! (1)

We have a good team: we did better, thankfully, and Uzoho wasn’t too dodgy today, thank God (2)

Besides Musa, no other player wants to score goal? Nawa o! (3).

Our boys are good, we just need ginger, drive, zeal and a strong desire to win… so far we have a greater zeal not to loose, but to win, we need the zeal (4).

We can do it, even though I know Argentina is right now planning to use us to shine, but o well (5).

For now, let’s bask in the victory.

Lest I forget, our boys improved a lot. Did anybody show them our social media posts?

Happy Super Eagle’s day to everyone once again: whether for or against! Musa made you proud!

 Then there were some very futuristic fans, I dare say:

These fans in Hard Rock Cafe should better calm down…
Which one is “we’re bringing the cup home”?
Make God help us o!
Abeg o!

The way this World Cup is going, a seemingly regular team may win. No one is joking! Every game is intense. Teams are doing better with each game. No one is taking the fall.

I wish the eagles the best. They can, I sincerely hope they do.

Meanwhile, catch me on Twitter and Instagram… I’d be screen-grabiing some Facebook comments on the go: engage me.

Happy Super Eagle’s day, everyone!

 

My World Cup Narrations… 1

First of all, there were the funny comments on my social media timelines:

“Although the goals were not that spectacular, we hope for more action from the Super Eagles. Take more risks. It’s the #WorldCupBut I think they just didn’t wear the right jersey (

>> Right Jersey? Realy? Never knew that could make a difference, Lool!

“Alert Nigerians!!! If you’re in the Russia stadium come to Canopy D. They are sharing food #CRONGA #WorldCup

>> At least some Nigerian Jollof to cool temper, I think, lol! We play too much.

“Well done Messi. God loves a humble beginning! Keep the goals for the semis/final.”

>> I am yet to fathom how this works… lool.

“It’s 2018 and I can’t watch Argentina because of a drizzle. Which way, DSTV???”

>> My friend here wasn’t having it with DSTV, lol!

Then, I shared my match-opinion:

(After the 1st half)

  • First of all, my new Nigerian celebrity fav goes to Abdullahi Shehu (Northern connect please come through)…

>> Guy is so fresh abeg. He was some good distraction for me…

  • Mikel has really impressed me (like very well)…

>> He really did

  • What’s with these Croatians and Moses’s leg? They wan give him injury ni?

>> And he kept falling anyhow: talent everywhere, lol

  • Uzoho?! I’m very much afraid o… it’s not looking good from his end o…

>> And to think they kept mentioning his teenage age of 19 years as a thing to be proud of: if you know, you know.

  • Our boys are doing well, but I’m not liking their style: it’s a bit laid back and uncompetitive…

>> Doing great is what we need o, abeg.

  • I’m not disappointed in Etebo at all: anyhow that goal would have entered…
  • It seems we will really do with some divine intervention (cause our skills are not too all that)…
  • When are the Deutch boys coming: my alternative…

>> I’m really looking forward to the Germans, they did it for me in 2014, I hope they do more!

  • Let’s hope more for the 2nd half!

>> Well, that didn’t go down well too, unfortunately.

 

(After the 2nd half)

And just like that, Nigeria breaks the record of never losing their first world cup match!

Croatia Goal Keeper is good though! And the entire team did better to be honest, from Start to finish…

Nigerian fans are to extra abeg: too extra with their regalia, too extra with their jubilation, and def too extra with their disappointment (lol): they def. wore their emotions on their sleeves today…

Abeg, who can help us read our observations to our boys? They need to do better biko if not our matches will be fewer than we wish/hope: but if God miraculously intervenes though…

Like seriously, we were way relaxed (in the beginning especially) …

Ehn, who told them to pass all the balls to Moses for scoring purposes? Hmmm… OK sha…

Please, someone help us tell them that this our strategy of “wait and take” (ask me to explain if you want) will not work o! Help us o, bikonu, thank you.

Erm, Abdullahi Shehu is still my fav though…
