  • Hmmmm…Firstly, they supported Zonal qualifiers to erase the West African bests and to create rooms for other weak teams. It’ll only take God’s support for Nigeria to win this very edition. This man will do everything for Bayana Bayana to win for the first time. Remember, they beat us 4-2 at home the last time.
    I just pray we win for the sake of some players that worked their sucks off during Qualifiers. But I’m scared of this Motsepe of a man.
