CAF-accredited sports analyst reacts

Speaking with Legit.ng, a CAF-accredited sports expert weighed in on the rise in accurate AFCON match predictions. In his words:

"I'm still surprised people are getting AFCON predictions correctly as the tournament has been unpredictable.
"It has actually been unpredictable. I mean, who would have thought Nigeria would draw Equatorial Guinea and win Ivory Coast in the group stage?
"If I was to predict those games, I'd have predicted the Super Eagles to win against Equatorial Guinea and lose to Ivory Coast. Or who would have seen Morocco's early exit from the tournament?

Man predicts Nigeria versus South Africa scoreline

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a man who had been predicting AFCON games correctly had given the scoreline for Nigeria's semis match.

In a Facebook post in the early hours of Wednesday, Temitope took a swipe at those waiting for his predictions to fail and clarified that he never claimed to be a prophet to be releasing prophecies.

While reiterating that Nigeria would win the tournament, Temitope revealed that the scoreline recurring in his subconsciousness was two-nil in favour of the Super Eagles.

He added that it would be another clean sheet and an easier game for Nigeria.
