Man correctly predicts 7 AFCON matches

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a man became famous after correctly predicting seven rounds of 16 games in the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON). The man, Amadu Raheem Komba Gbandeh, said on Facebook that he had told people what would happen, and they never believed him.

In his predictions dropped before the matches were played, Amadu said Guinea would beat Equatorial Guinea and that Senegal would lose on penalties to Ivory Coast, and all he said came to pass. Amadu also said that Mali would beat Burkina Faso and DR. Congo would triumph over Egypt, and these also happened.

His prediction about Nigeria beating Cameroon also came to pass, and the same thing happened in the game between Cape Verde and Mauritania. However, Amadu's prediction about the game between South Africa and Morroco failed as the former trashed the latter with two goals to nothing.
