AFCON: “God no go shame us,” Pastor Jimmy Odukoya prays for Eagles against Angola 

AFCON: “God no go shame us,” Pastor Jimmy Odukoya prays for Eagles against Angola 

Nigerian Pastor Jimmy Odukoya has prayed for the Super Eagles of Nigeria ahead of their African Nations Cup (AFCON) quarterfinal match against Angola. 

Odukoya offered his prayers in a video released on his social media handles on Friday.

The pastor released different prayer points that he wants Nigerians to use to engage God.

Pastor Odukoya noted in his new video that he has never seen an antelope eating or destroying an eagle, saying Angola has no way to defeat the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

The Nigerian pastor offered special prayers for the Super Eagles’ frontline, including Victor Osimhen, Moses Simon, and Samuel Chukwueze.

He noted that all of their shots would find their way inside the back of the net whenever they took aim.

Pastor Odukoya wrapped up his prayers, saying, “God, no, go shame us.”

Recall that the popular Nigerian youth clergyman has been one of the biggest supporters of the Super Eagles since the start of the AFCON.

He dropped some inspiring messages for the Super Eagles ahead of their quarter-final clash against Angola, just as he did before the Super Eagles match against Cameroon.

The prayer points were to help Nigeria defeat the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon. However, his messages came across with a lot of humour and teasing.
