NIGERIA’S SPORTING EXPLOITS IN THE PAST WEEKEND.

It was a great weekend for Nigeria in the world of sports, with the spectacular win of London born Nigerian, Anthony Joshua who clinched the Heavyweight boxing title after an impressive win against Russian opponent Wladimir Klitschko in Wembley.

Anthony Joshua famously declared that the secret of his success is the delicious Nigerian meal- Eba and Egusi soup. (Google it if you don’t know).

His honest revelation thrilled Nigerians and West Africans, and makes us love him even more. It also gives credence to our long held belief that there is something special about Eba. Indeed a food of champions.

And in the Bahamas at the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup 2017, Nigeria emerged victorious in their game against Mexico. The game almost ended in a draw until Nigeria’s Sand Eagles number 8, Abu Azeez delivered a stunning goal, elevating Nigeria to the champion status. Here’s wishing him and the rest of the team success in the tournament.
