He added that it would be another clean sheet and an easy game for Nigeria. He also stated that the match would produce Nigeria's highest number of goals. He went further to break down his prediction:

"In simple English the match will end 2-0 in favor of Nigeria if Nigeria is NOT leading already by 2-0 by the end of the first half. So if the match is 0-0 or 1-0 by the end of first half, the game will end at 2-0 by the end of 90 minutes. If Nigeria is however leading by 2-0 at the half time whistle, the game will be a 4 or 5 goal rout at the end of the game.

"2-0 at half time = 4-0 or 5-0 at final whistle.
"If you no understand I can't break it down more than this. Ask your friend wey dey quick understand book."

He appealed to South Africans not to retaliate violently against Nigerians residing in their country when Bafana Bafana eventually lose the game.

Rise in accurate AFCON predictions

A CAF-accredited sports expert, Ayomide Oguntimehin, has shared with his thoughts on the increase in accurate AFCON match predictions. He said:

"Actually, 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?
