AFCON: ‘You Go Play Abi You No Go Play,’ Nigerians Ask Stanley Nwabali

Stanley Nwabali has won Nigerians’ hearts with his performances at the ongoing African Cup of Nations, AFCON, in Ivory Coast. So, when he was taken off injured in the round of 16 clash with Cameroon, the fear across Nigeria was understandable.

Therefore, news of his training with Super Eagles teammates yesterday was heartwarming. Now, Nigerians want to know if he will be facing off the boisterous Angola side as the AFCON quarterfinals begin on Friday.

‘You go play?’

Knowing Nigerians are anxious, Nwabali made a post on X (Twitter).

He wrote: “Thanks to everyone that checked up and showed disquiet in one way or the other at this strenuous time, I appreciate. We’re all human and anything is prone to happen. Onto the next one! (sic).
