Salute Our Dream Team! By Muhammad Malumfashi
Even though they left US few hours to their game, they managed to win in a nine goals thriller. Imagine this; Nigerian team so in love with the City of Atlanta; where it won 6 medals 20 years ago in 1996 that they had to leave about 6 hours to their game, and almost getting 6 goals. Just while, you are in America, suddenly you’re celebrating in Brazil, beating Japan. Nigeria! This is not African time (its Nigerian time) even South Africa has arrived earlier and finished their match, when Team NIJA was on plane, probably. But who cares, Na so we carry gold for Atlanta
Even at the US, robbers attacked the Coach, they stole his mobile phones, some cash and his assistant’ too, imagine. Breaking the car doors of a man who was last paid, eh, this month…February. That was the last time he saw alert from the FG. And they wan hire Oyinbo coach for this nonsense? Thank you Paul, he said Mba! Le Guen – La salary.
After solving the ticket issue, Nigerian plane reached Manaus. Let’s not talk about Dalung now, but I’m telling you the Minister man, he’s not much to blame. I tell you. You know this time around we aren’t having that 300-men entourage as before, carry 313 pipu then carry 1 bronze come back Nija. No be Comrade Minister’ fault.
Prior to US, our athletes had poor facilities to train with at the Lagos stadium. One of the athletes, Faith Obiora, complained that there’s no light, to make things worse, the roof was leaking. Our only boxer, Efe Ajagba made similar complains too, but he was told to be more patriotic. The situation in Abuja wasn’t that good too, but the athletes were charged to bring the gold home, in other words they should steal the damn gold, isn’t that the only way? Nigeria!
Nigeria Dream U-23 Team managed to defeat Japan with 5-4. One Etebo like that scored 4 o! Only in Dream I’ll thought that Dream Team will win their match. Talking of our striker, Etebo (or what’s the name), He’ll soon join the Super Eagles and turn to a very stupid player. Captain Mikel dash him one penalty sha. Mikel, the Captain, who changed his name from Mikel Obi to John Mikel Obi. Please, remind me to change my name from Muhammad Malumfashi to Muhammad Adamu Malumfashi if we win the gold medal in 3 weeks. Wait! We even changed Captain. While we had our Captain who played all the qualifiers, our Sports Minister said our Captain is another player. Siasia has resolved that wahala Abeg. Now we only need to decide; who should we pair that Muhammed with at the Center back, then who is even our NFF Pres., Giwa is heading to Supreme Court, and Pinnick is hoping to be elected to the African Pres. Council of FIFA or something like that.
Dear Dream Team and others, we sincerely don’t give a damn if you don’t bring no medals. We just pray they return you back safely, as today is Friday; I pray no one attacks your hotel. Ameen! Forget about Sweeden and Colombia, Rio is a good city. Wait, I was joking, please do this, but for only Late Stephen Keshi and Shuaibu Amodu.
Concerned and Patriotic Nigerian.
