The Super Eagles of Nigeria won the gold medal at the 2013 African Cup of Nations on Sunday, February 10th. It took the team 19 years to hoist the gold cup since the last time it held the trophy.
Congratulations to coach, Stephen Keshi, who made discipline a key aspect of his coaching tactic.
Congratulations are equally in order for the players, all of whom displayed exemplary skill on the field. They gave many of us Nigeria-lovers and observers something other than the negative to focus on over the last few weeks.
I grew up rooting for this team and I have now got my children and husband doing the same. With continued effort, I am sure there will be many more times for us to do that again.
