Imama Amapakabo, the Assistant Coach to Nigeria's Super Eagles, has revealed the call he received from the founder and General Overseer of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, SCOAN, Prophet T.B. Joshua on the eve of Nigeria's Semi Final encounter between Algeria at the just concluded African Cup Of Nations, AFCON, in Egypt.
Amapakabo, who is also in charge of Nigeria's U-23 National Team, disclosed that the prominent Nigerian cleric told him that whoever wins the encounter would go on to take the coveted trophy.
Algeria defeated the Super Eagles of Nigeria 2-1 in the semi-final and went on to beat Senegal 1-0 to claim the trophy in Cairo last night.
"Got a call from Prophet T.B. Joshua on the eve of our game against Algeria and he prophesied that we should play that game as the finals - in other words, whoever wins the game wins the cup," the former Enugu Rangers and El Kanemi Warriors boss wrote on his personal Facebook account.
"And true to his words, it came to pass," he added.
It was the second triumph for the Desert Foxes at the AFCON, following their victory against Nigeria 29 years ago in 1990.
