Temitope's prediction of Nigeria vs South Africa

While reiterating that Nigeria would win the tournament, Temitope revealed that the scoreline recurring in his subconsciousness was two-nil in favour of the Super Eagles.

He added that it would be another clean sheet and an easy game for Nigeria. He also stated that the match would produce Nigeria's highest number of goals. He went further to break down his prediction:

"In simple English the match will end 2-0 in favor of Nigeria if Nigeria is NOT leading already by 2-0 by the end of the first half. So if the match is 0-0 or 1-0 by the end of first half, the game will end at 2-0 by the end of 90 minutes. If Nigeria is however leading by 2-0 at the half time whistle, the game will be a 4 or 5 goal rout at the end of the game.

"If you no understand I can't break it down more than this. Ask your friend wey dey quick understand book."

He appealed to South Africans not to retaliate violently against Nigerians residing in their country when Bafana Bafana eventually lost the game.
