Super Eagles technical director Austin Eguavoen has asked Nigerians to beg the leader of the INRI Evangelical Church, Oke Afa, Lagos, Primate Babatunde Elijah Ayodele.
Primate Babatunde Elijah Ayodele in a video, monitored by SportsRation gave Nigeria certain conditions to follow for Super Eagles to be victorious against Ghana.
Nigeria and Ghana will play over two legs with the first in Ghana and the second leg at the Moshood Abiola Stadium with the aggregate winners taking the slot to Qatar 2022.
According to Primate Babatunde Elijah Ayodele the three conditions needed for Nigeria to qualify are:
For Austin Eguavoen to remain as the Super Eagles coach, ensure they score in the first 68 minutes of the game and also not invite a certain player.
It is unsure what Austin Eguavoen is reacting to, but according to BSNSports Austin Eguavoen appreciates the Primate and asked Nigerians to plead with him to overturn his prediction.
“He is a man of God and sometimes you’ve to give it to them,” said Eguavoen to BSNSports.
“But he is a Nigerian if you know him please tell him to overturn it because it will be a joyous thing for Nigeria to be in Qatar, in 2022.
“He can overturn it because he is a man of God and he prays and God listens to him. He is an intermediary between us and God.
“It is easier said than done. We have worked hard and fought and make sure we want the ticket more than Ghana wants it.
“You know Nigeria is a country that prays a lot, so we will continue to pray but we will work hard. We want it more than Ghana and we will get it.”
So, what exactly should the Prophet pray to God to overturn as he never said Nigeria will not qualify for Qatar 2022 – he only said certain conditions must be in place.
