Nigeria would play Burkina Faso on Sunday a country which everyone looked down upon in terms of football but now they seem to stand out strong.
Nigeria who over thirteen years hasn't got hold of the Africa Cup of Nations trophy is set to make it this time with the words of the General Overseer of The Synagogue Church of All Nations, Lagos - Nigeria, 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.
He said, "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."
He however waned that Burkina Faso shouldn't be allowed to score first saying, "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."
"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 score line but I would rather delay it till Sunday morning in order not psychologically distract the players and their coaches and not to demoralize the losing team."
"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.
The man of God also said that he isn't the only one praying for the Super Eagles to win, so he wouldn't want Coach Stephen Keshi and his team to come to his Church to celebrate.
What do the Burkinabe's have to say, would they feel demoralized or accept the words of the man of God in Fate?
All this will be left for us to know on Sunday as the Super Eagles of Nigeria take on the Stallions of Burkina Faso.
