However, fiveb Nigerians reportedly died while watching the nerve-wracking game.

Chief Angus a very wealthy Igbo businessman and a pro one nigerianist and renowned anti Biafra agitator based in Abijan died in the stadium the moment South Africa equalised

Ayuba Abdullahi, the deputy bursar at the Kwara State University (KWASU), died from complaints of possible high blood pressure after watching the match.

Also, Samuel, a corps member serving in Adamawa state, fainted just before the last kick that ensured Nigeria’s victory in the match.

He was rushed to the hospital but died before they arrived at the health facility.

In a video released by the Eagles’ media team, the players observed a minute of silence and prayers in honour of the dead.

Ahmed Musa, the team’s captain, said Nigeria will win the AFCON trophy as a homage to the people who lost their lives.

“We lost good Nigerians because of the game yesterday. We will make a minute silence, and [Chidozie] Awazie will lead us in prayer to wish their families well because they need our support right now. And, God willing, on Sunday, we are going to lift that trophy for them,” Musa said.

The Super Eagles will face Ivory Coast in the final on Sunday at the Olympic Stadium of Ebimpé, Abidjan, by 6pm.
