T.B. Joshua Predicts Super Eagles Will Win Nations Cup

Published

The General Overseer of The Synagogue Church Of All Nations, Prophet Temitope Balogun Joshua, says Nigeria’s Super Eagles would defeat Burkina Faso in Sunday’s final of the Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.

T.B. Joshua, who warned Eagles’ coach, Stephen Keshi to avoid conceding a late minute goal in their AFCON Group C opener against the Burkinabe, told P.M.NEWS that Nigeria’s case in the Nations Cup final this year is like the biblical Jacob who wrestled with God, saying that “on Sunday we’ll tell God unless He gives us our heart’s desire we’ll not let Him go.

“The cloud is darker over Nigeria’s Super Eagles, but with God we’ll scale through. If it were not to be the final, anything could have happened. The first match we played with Burkina Faso, it was just by the grace of God that it ended in a draw.

“On Sunday, our opponents will play defensively because they will be looking out for penalty shootout at the end of the game. They will also play through three of their strikers upfront; one of them very tall and huge player and two others.

“What I’m seeing I don’t want to say it because it would be too frightening, but I want to assure that we’ll scale through the challenge on Sunday.”

The prophet who established a football club, My People FC to groom young players, however, warned the Eagles not to allow Burkina Faso to score first in the final, saying that “if this happened the Burkinabe would fall back to defend the goal, which will be very dangerous for our team. I still repeat that no matter the situation, we’ll scale through.

“The Burkina Faso that we played in the group stage will not be the same team we’ll play on Sunday, even though some of their players are out of the squad due to injuries. They are still a team. But I hope for celebration.”

Joshua said as the giant of Africa, Nigeria last won the Nations Cup 13 years ago, which was too long ago for a great football nation like Nigeria.

“I think God should give us this cup to make the youths of this country happy. Winning this cup at this time of religious intolerance and violence will calm down the youths. I want to appeal to all Nigerians to pray for Eagles’ victory. I would have told you the scoreline but I would rather delay it till Sunday morning in order not psychologically distract the players and their coaches and not to demoralise the losing team.”

Prophet Joshua concluded that he would not want Keshi and his team to come to his church to celebrate their victory after the match because he is not the only one praying for the Eagles to win.

“My voice may be the one louder among the men of God in the country but this doesn’t mean that the team should come to my church to celebrate. I would rather prefer that they celebrate their victory with all Nigerians,” he said.

    Satanic false prophet what has football got to do with the gospel of Christ? If u r a prophet tell us how many goals and who would score them. BTW why didn’t u predict it from the beginning when noone could see it coming? Fake ass demon worshipping publicity seeker, only blind ignorant people regard u as a prophet of God. Ur sorcery and witchcraft would eventually be exposed, though some of us can see it clearly already…

    Hello pple, if u don’t understand what a Prophet or a Pastor is doing, just hold ur peace, ignore him & go ur own way. Serve ur own God ur own way. Don’t blaspheme anybody dat calls himself a man of God bcos u feel he is a false prophet. U may end up committing blasphemy against d Spirit of God; dis is an unforgivable sin. Leave TB Joshua n his prophesy alone, he is not begging u 2 believe in his prophesy. Serve ur own God ur own way.

Place your bet in Nigeria only on 1xBet on the most popular matches and win

Published

on

The current Champions League season has already brought a lot of sensations, but there was no
intrigue in the first semi-final. PSG confidently took on RB Leipzig 3-0 and reached the
tournament final for the first time in its history. You should bet in Nigeria only on 1xBet.ng to
get the best conditions for earning money and numerous bonuses for active gambling.

Before the game began, it was already clear from the RB Leipzig players’ emotions that they
were not confident in their victory. The PSG players’ mood demonstrated the contrary. At the
very beginning of the game, the Parisians began to attack the opponent’s goal, with Neymar
keeping wasting his chances. PSG fans were pleased with Kylian Mbappe joining the game,
which significantly sharpened the team’s attack. However, the hero of the game was not the
Frenchman, but Angel Di Maria, who scored a goal and gave two assists. Only on 1xBet, you
should bet in Nigeria to get plenty of benefits from the best bookmaker on the market.

  1. RB Leipzig demonstrated no satisfactory game, which may have been affected by the following
    factors:
    1. Absence of Timo Werner. Of course, the German wanted to finish the season quickly to
    start a successful career with Chelsea, but he could also help the former team in difficult
    times.
  2. The tactic was too risky. 3-4-3 with a smooth transition to 3-5-2 is not the best solution
    against attacking PSG. This largely affected the result. Cool live casino on 1xBet.ng has a
    lot of profitable offers and games with huge prize money, so that everyone could earn
    more.
  3. Poor leaders’ game. Sabitzer looked lost on the field, Poulsen wasn’t visible either. The
    fans could only see Upamecano’s efforts, but the defender alone couldn’t withstand one
    of the best attacks in the world.

It is also worth mentioning the game of PSG. The Parisians played a great match and deserved to
qualify for the final.

Profitable 1xBet sport betting with lots of advantages

PSG is performing well this season. Profitable 1xBet sport betting brought considerable profit to
all the bettors who bet on the Parisians. But we should mention RB Leipzig as well. The
Germans have had a great season and surprised many fans.

This success is attributed to the head coach Julian Nagelsmann, who seems to remain with the
team for at least another season. The specialist asked the management to buy several forwards
and a defender, and also insisted that Dayot Upamecano remained at the club. Profitable sport
betting at 1xBet is supplemented by numerous bonuses and profitable promotions that
additionally help you to earn money.

The Bundesliga is to start soon, so RB Leipzig should do its best on the transfer market and have
a good pre-season preparation to improve the team’s results.

Talented Nigerian Players of the NFL

Published

on

The NFL is quickly becoming one of the most popular leagues for Nigerian athletes. Over the last few years, we have seen some immensely talented players from Nigeria, or with Nigerian ancestry, come into the league and take over. While all positions in the sport of American football have benefited, notably there has been a focus on defensive positions from these athletes, with linebackers and defensive ends rising to prominence. Here are some of the most talented Nigerian athletes in the NFL that you need to know.

Jeremiah Attaochu

Jeremiah Attaochu is a 6’3”( 1.91m) outside linebacker who is currently playing for the Denver Broncos. He was a member of the 2014 draft, selected in the 2nd round as pick #50 overall. Attaochu played briefly for several teams like the 49ers and the Jets as he gradually tried to find the perfect fit. Recently, Attaochu has been re-signed by the Broncos on a one-year $1.5 million contract. Clearly, the Broncos liked what he brought to their defensive line.

Since Peyton Manning left the Broncos, the squad has been testing new offensive schemes, but their defense remains very strong. All-star player Von Miller has recently been placed on the injury list, so Attaochu will be called on to perform his best. With his aggressive tackling and limitless gas tank, Attaochu certainly helps bring the Broncos favorable American football odds. The team’s main division rivals are the Kansas City Chiefs who have one of the strongest offenses in the league. Heading into the 2020 season, defense is a priority for the Broncos.

Jeff Okudah

Okudah was born in Texas, USA in 1999 to Nigerian parents, making him one of the youngest players on this list. In the most recent NFL draft, Okudah was one of the most in-demand athletes and was selected #3 overall by the Detroit Lions. In the buildup to his NFL debut he quickly became known as the best cornerback in the entire country, and has proven to be yet another exceptional Nigerian athlete to gr3aduate from Texas universities.

This is excellent news for the Lions, who certainly need all the help they can get on defense. Okudah made his NFL debut this past Sunday, playing against the Green Bay Packers and MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers. All things considered, Okudah played well and showed that he can perform at the professional level.

Emmanuel Ogbah

Born in Lagos, Nigeria, Ogbah has come a long way on his journey to becoming the standout outside linebacker that he is. He was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2016 as the #32 overall pick. After two years with the squad, he was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs, where he really came into his own as a linebacker.

Ogbah played a big role in the Chief’s 12-4 record while he was active during the 2019 season. His standout performance was during week 3 versus the Baltimore Ravens, when Ogbah sacked quarterback Lamar Jackson 1.5 times.
