Recently, Nigeria played against South Africa in a Cup of Nations qualifier in Nigeria. South Africa won the fixture 2-0 using their training balls, as the official match balls Nigeria were supposed to use were nowhere to be found.
Guess the training balls brought South Africa luck, as they have never beaten Nigeria in a competitive match. All I can say is…only in Africa. Being an ex-professional South African soccer player, I have seen this and other similar events happen and all I can do is laugh.
