Nigeria’s wait to reach the second round of the FIFA Women’s World Cup lasted 20 years, plus a nerve-racking final 12 minutes in the match between Thailand and Chile.
From Rennes to Nigeria, the anticipation was severe, but, it was perhaps Social media that showed the trepidation and ultimately the joy that followed.
Nigerian’s pulled out their creative wands on Thursday painting every scenario as humorously colorful as they could at every moment’s notice.
From name merging Thailand and Nigeria to adopting and re-christening Francisca Lara to Omo-Lara, they didn’t hold back.
