NIGERIA VS SOUTH AFRICA: MORE THAN A MATCH

Tonight at the Stade de la Paix, the clash that everyone is hyped up for, is finally happen. Yes, it is the clash of Africa’s giants, Nigeria versus South Africa.

And it is more than just a football match, with a lot of history between the two countries. Tensions are high, with both countries eager to get the bragging rights over the other.

Who will forget how a simple football match between the two countries ended up breaking a friendship. Remember, that AKA (South Africa) and Burna Boy (Nigeria) tw@r over a simple match that escalated into something horrific.

It has even escalated to a point where the Nigerian official representatives in South Africa, have issued a statement. The statement urges Nigerians living in South Africa to be cautious, how they celebrate, should they win.

The statement below:

But even if it banter, it should never get to a point where it escalates into something horrible. For example, the banter between DStv Nigeria and DStv South Africa has been nothing but fun, with the two brands simply pocking fun at the other.

Back to the actual football, the two sides go into the match, red hot, pulling shockers, one after the other. They have been the most entertaining sides at this years Afcon tournament.

Nigeria who started a bit unconvincing, not showing their teeth in front of goal, despite boasting the talent of the African player of the year Victor Ohsimen. They have started picking up steam, becoming a threat in front of goal.

On the other hand, South Africa started off poorly, suffering a defeat at the hands of Mali. But ever since then, they have managed to pick themselves up well, becoming the favorites to win the Afcon tournament.

Whoever wins tonight, one thing is for sure, they will have the bragging rights. But at the same time, both fans from the two countries, should always remember, it is just a football match.
