[size=14pt]HALLELUJAH!
E don happen for the glory of Almighty God.
For Nigeria to defeat Croatia in Basketball is a big miracle.
I see the Almighty Hand of God in this historic Olympic victory.
Congratulations D'tigers of Nigeria!
God bless Nigeria 24/7!

The best attitude under the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari is to be more optimistic than the pessimistic.

Aww so happy for them. They put up such a great fight even against tough teams like Argentina and Lithuania

How many teams qualify from a group? And do we still have hope?

General Casandra toured the world at the onset of the propaganda government with our money. Flying the presidential jet upandan only to lie to us that there is no cash for team Nigeria in a sports event that is hosted once every four years.
If we win now, he will shine his gworo rotten teeth and give them 20k.

Congrats boys. Every region is represented in the team and together they are fighting hard to bring us glory. That's way the country should be ran.

Wow! I think its the first time an African team has won a basket ball game at the olympics...if anyone knows better please correct me. Our girls were also the first African basketball team to win an Olympic basketball game when they qualified in 2004 Athens game...Angola keep dominating Africa for years but never wins a game at the Olympics.
