They were called the Biafran team, but the feat they achieved was for the glory of a whole nation, irrespective of language, affiliation or association. Their heroics has become the stuff of folklores, their names have become like spittle in our mouths; ever present. It might have had more Igbo constituents but they were Nigerians.
But did this crop of players make a claim for the Igbo people? Remains to be seen though.
Doubted and discounted for majority of the tourney! But came out to be counted when it mattered the most.
I pray this victory helps to mend broken fences and scarred flesh.
Salute to our national heroes for making us smile once again.
Enjoy some scenes from the just concluded AFCON 2013 after the cut:
