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…
>> 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…
>> 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?
