I was just going through some post in this community when I came across the post about the contest, and we were instructed to write about our unforgettable world cup experience. I am glad it did not pass me, this is my first time writing a contest post on this community.
Sports has always been my thing, my love for sports didn’t just began today, it has started a long time as a kid, though my mom tried to discourage me saying she don’t want me to play and one day break my legs in the process she gave me a stain warning one faithful day when I was about to go for training in the small team I was playing for, she said if I go I shouldn’t come back to her house again lol. Of cause it was her house I was raised up by my mom.
As a result of that, I started having less interest in football but as soon as I left home and started leaving on my own the spirit came back to me, but only as a fan not as a player she killed the dream I had in playing for one of the clubs in future, In this contest we were told to write about our favorite world cup experience. Immediately my mind ran down to the 2014/2017 world cup and during the match that was played between Nigeria and Argentina mhen the match was the best world cup I have ever watched.
It was the 6th time Nigeria qualify for world cup, though they were not able to make it to the finals but at least they were able to reach semi-finals. It took place in Russia during that time the whole of Nigerians were happy for the super eagles of Nigeria qualify for the world cup after 6 years, I could remember that during that time I just wrote my junior certificate exams, and on-hearing that our dear Nigeria qualify for the competitions we were all filled with joy we will sneak out from the dormitory just to go out and watch super eagles play.
Even though some players who were eager to play were ruled out because of injury sustained in other matches, the likes of Elderson Echiejeile. The game with Iceland was what really got me and most of the fans to enjoy the competition more, the player Amed Musa really trilled fans he was the one that made Nigeria qualify for the finals he was named the man of the match.
But sadly we were rolled out by Argentina the football legends. Even if we were out of the competition at least we were able to reach the quarter finals after six years. This was the most remembered world cup competition ever.
