At last, something to be proud of again! MIGHTY Nigeria floors South Africa! Our boys did it! Chukwueze and Ekong did it! They slaughter our people in SA but we tore off their @BafanaBafana pants in Cairo! Well done boys! Proud of our @NGSuperEagles! #SuperEagles#BafanaBafana pic.twitter.com/YkbvAeU7a6

South Africa players sang their way from the bus into the stadium. Nigeria players will sing from the stadium all the way to the bus. That’s how stars do. #NGARSA
