TB Joshua Football Prophecy!

October 11, 2011

Prophet T.B. Joshua is in the news again after revelations that he accurately predicted the result of Nigeria’s game against Guinea which saw the Super Eagles astonishingly bow out of the African Cup Of Nations (AFCON).

“I was just sitting down and God showed me the game between Nigeria and Guinea next week,” Joshua stated on Sunday 3rd October during a church service, broadcast live on his Christian television station Emmanuel TV. “What I saw was not favourable towards Nigeria. If at this time we are stopped, it would be very shameful.” Expounding on the match details, he said, “Anyone who scores first takes the day… I am seeing the Guinean side shouting.”

Clarifying that it was not within his powers to change the outcome, Joshua added, “If I could do it alone, I would pray and fast to ask God to change the result. But it’s not possible for me to do it. Two of must believe to make things happen. We must agree and instruction must be given. Let’s honour God and carry Him along. Pray as if it all depends on God; play football as if it all depends on you.”

Six days later in crucial final qualifying game for the AFCON, Guinea held Nigeria to a 2-2 draw. The closely fought game saw Syli Stars of Guinea take a lead in the 55th minute as Ismael Bangoura smashed home a rebound after the ball ricocheted off the post. However, 16 minutes later Nigeria looked to be cruising to victory after two well-worked goals from Obinna Nsofor and Ikechukwu Uche. Pressing forward for a third goal to ensure automatic qualification, the Super Eagles left gaping holes in their midfield and in literally the last moments of the match, Guinea snatched an equaliser through Ibrahim Diallo. The result saw Guinea top Group B and Nigeria missing out on the African Cup of Nations for the first time in 25 years.

In a chat with reporters at the reception hall of the Transcorp Hilton shortly after the match, West Bromich Albion striker Osaze Odemwengie affirmed that the team knew of the prediction and were unhappy they did not meet Joshua before the game. “The prediction of Prophet TB Joshua really affected us. We thought we could see him to see how he could overturn the negative prediction but the officials came with another prophet who prayed for us and told us that all was well.”

T.B. Joshua has predicted the results of several other international matches involving Nigeria, especially in their run-up to qualification for the 2010 World Cup. He owns a football academy named My People FC which produced Lazio starlets Sani Emmanuel and Ogenyi Onazi. Emmanuel was voted the MVP at the 2009 U-17 World Cup. He caused quite a media stir in Ghana after their 2009 U-20 World Cup triumph when coach Sellas Tetteh controversially said he had been in communication with him throughout their final game against Brazil.

Emmanuel also won the Silver Shoe for the second highest goal scorer, behind Spain’s Borja.

Both men, along with Uruguay’s Sebastian Gallegos, scored five goals but the Spaniard had one assist where the other two had none and that proved to be the tie-breaker.

Nigeria also claimed the Fifa Fair Play award after collecting the lowest number of bookings in the tournament.

Emmanuel dedicated his award to a long list of people, starting with his teammates.

“I would like to dedicate this award to my coaches, players, widows, widowers, homeless people and those in the motherless babies homes.”

Nigeria defeated Spain 3-1 in yesterday’s semi final match of the 13th FIFA Under-17 World Cup, but the two goals from My People Academy’s forward, Sani Emmanuel were all that the Golden Eaglets needed to book a place in the final.

The youngster electrified the Teslim Balogun Stadium, Surulere, Lagos immediately he was introduced into the match. He was a thorn in the flesh of the Spaniards with his blistering runs and ball control, which earned him two goals in the match, watched by a capacity crowd.

Emmanuel, who was introduced into the match in the 48th minute began to do damage to their opponents barely 23 minutes later. He scored a brace to take his goal haul in the competition to five, making him a joint top scorer with two other players from Uruguay and Spain.

The player, who was literally raised in the Synagogue, owned by Prophet T.B Joshua, has been described as the hottest super-sub of the ongoing competition.

Eaglets coach, John Obuh says Emmanuel has been very instrumental to his team’s success at the Nigeria 2009 World Cup. “Emmanuel has become my joker and he’s playing to instruction,” Obuh said.

Apart from the praises he has received from his people back in Ikotun, it was a carnival-like atmosphere as the worshippers celebrated the performance of one of their own till late yesterday. An elated Joshua, said: “I’m happy for Emmanuel. When I noticed he’ll be a great footballer, I sent him to Sweden and registered him in my academy, My People F.C. So, I’m glad he’s making progress and the young boy will go places.”

Obuh has assured that his wards would be ready for their final match against Switzerland at the Abuja Stadium on Sunday.

Obuh, the former Kwara United coach said he was impressed with his team’s performance and disclosed that he would make some changes in the team to be battle-ready for Sunday’s clash.

“I’m really delighted that my players rose to the occasion; they played to instructions and I’m happy that we would play in the finals. It is a good thing that though we started slowly, we were able to put back smiles on the faces of Nigerians.”

On his expectations and what he knows about the European newcomers, Obuh says he knows little about them. But he believes with the right attitude and approach to the match, his team would retain the trophy in Nigeria.

He added that he is aware the Swiss are a very mobile side, but will get a strong team to beat them.

“I know them as a team that have qualified for the final. By the time we meet in Abuja on Sunday, we would get the better of them and win again for Nigeria.”

Sani Emmanuel: A Star On The Rise

November 6, 2009

My People FC’s Sani Emmanuel notched two goals in the space of five minutes in Nigeria’s 5-0 mauling of New Zealand, taking his goal tally to three from two games…

At tournaments like this, stars are made. The 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup may turn out to be Sani Emmanuel’s tournament. The lad who has played only two matches in this tournament has notched up three goals.

In his first match of the tournament, Emmanuel, who plays for My People Football Club, came from the bench to score Nigeria’s second and winning goal against Argentina in their last group game played at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Stadium in Bauchi. The goal came from the penalty spot after the Argentines had fouled a Nigerian player in their goal area.

Sani Emmanuel: Giving glory to God!

After coming from the sub’s bench in the 73rd minute to score two goals in five minutes against New Zealand, My People FC’s Sani Emmanuel is already making a name for himself…

In the Golden Eaglet’s round of 16 matches against New Zealand yesterday at the Abuja National Stadium, Emmanuel, who came into the match in the 74th minute as a replacement for Omo Ojabu, struck a minute later to increase Nigeria’s lead to 4-0. The goal was the work of sublime skill as the player, waltzing into the New Zealand eighteen, outpaced his markers and coolly slotted the ball past the New Zealand goalkeeper.

Four minutes later, collecting a pass from Stanley Okoro, he fired from eight yards out to score Nigeria’s fifth goal. With his future spread before him, the player whose explosive playing style and close ball control closely mirrors that of super eagles forward, Obafemi Martins, may not have to wait for long before getting a look in from handlers of the Super Eagles.

With three goals under his belt, he has put himself in contention for the Golden Shoe, an award reserved for the tournament’s highest goal scorer.
