AFCON 2019 - Algeria VS Nigeria: Is Super Eagles' Away Jersey Jinxed? by Gracealone(m): 1:02pm On Jul 12
It is a known fact to all that the Nigerian Super Eagles have been drawn against the Algerian national team in the AFCON 2019 Semi-finals. Super Eagles are going to be the away team, this suggests that they would probably be donning the deep green away jersey.

Frankly, I am not the superstitious type, but my observation is that Nigeria has never recorded a good result in these colours. I have shared it jokingly with some friends and they laughed it off.

What is your take?

I asked for the blood of ten virgins to make this jersey as good as the other,instead they gave me the blood of ten feminists.Now the nation will suffer cus of this feminists but I will intercede to the gods with the head of a feminist.

Forget all these guys yammering about jerseys not playing the game ; fact is even the most 'unsuperstitious' Nigerian knows he is, in his heart of hearts, very superstitious when it comes to football.

I ain't superstitious... All I know is that the white and green zig-zagged jersey depicts speed, confidence and agility...

But I believe that no matter the color we're putting on on Sunday, the Algerians are going home.

I'm not one to be superstitious.. However, lady luck is not always on our side when we wear that Jersey... And for the sake of aesthetics, camera ish... I prefer our home Jersey.

Nigeria is jinxed. A daugther of Afernifere leader was murdered before an important match. Same thing happened in the world cup, where the was a mass murder in Plateau State by Fulani herdsmen before Argentina. And we needed only a draw.

The Nation is in a mourning mood. A win in this competition will not wash all the blood spilled in Nigeria.
