A quick drive around Lagos this afternoon showed that the streets are clogged as Lagosians race home and to viewing centers to take vantage positions in front of their television sets.
7pm is kick off time for the finals before the Finals. Nigeria vs Argentina and venue is the St Petersburg Stadium.
The two foes meet in what is a make-or -mar Group D match at the ongoing World Cup in Russia.
Nigeria has 3 points from a win over Iceland and a loss to Croatia while Argentina has 1 point having drawn against Croatia and lost to Iceland.
A win for Nigeria guarantees us 6 points and a place in the next round. A win for Argentina nets them 4 points and sends us home. So, the best result today is a win or draw for the Super Eagles.
The odds favour Argentina but this year’s world cup has shown that the footballing giants have feet of clay.
No one is sure who will win but what is sure is that will or lose, Nigerians will not sleep tonight. If we lose, we mourn and if we win, we party all night.
Go eagles, soar!
