Stanley Nwabali, the hero of Nigeria’s penalty shootout win over South Africa, wants to continue making Nigerians proud as they head towards the AFCON final.
Recall that the Chippa United goalkeeper saved two crucial penalties, securing a ticket to the championship match against Cote d’Ivoire.
Despite his impressive performance, the football star remains humble. Stanley Nwabali expressed his deepest desire to bring joy to Nigerians.
“I don’t really know how I am feeling. When I look around, because of Nigerians, I only want to make them happy and just make them feel good. I did not even expect this thing to come my way now but I give God the glory and I want to say a very big thank you to everyone, my club, Chippa United family, and my coaches here who always guide me.
Today showed me that it’s going to be a D-day for us in the final but you know football, you can never predict but I wish it is going to come our way. They always know this slogan ‘You no go gree for anybody’ and I really want to do more for Nigeria, I love them all. Thank you to everyone who wishes me well.”
