Sports Host: You are on to the number one Nigerian TV station; we will be bringing to you live the AFCON quarter-final match involving the indomitable lions of Cameroon and the Super Eagles of Nigeria. In the next few minutes, we’ll join our guys in Alexandria. Can I have your prediction now having seen both teams line-up?

Guest: I can see a strong Cameroonian line-up; for the Nigerians, I still see them porous with that selection at the back. I give it to Cameroon with a 2-0 scoreline.

Sports Host: That, we shall see at the end of 90 minutes. Let’s join Alexandria, Egypt now.

4:01 PM

Commentator I: I’m Azuchukwu Olawale; I’m your commentator for this West-African battle between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the indomitable lions of Cameroon. With me here in the commentary box is Mohammed Austin-Ekpeyong. ‘Mo’ what can you say about the atmosphere right here in Alexandria?

Commentator II: Thank you Azu, we have a full house today compared to the first round of matches where the supporters club of both countries were the only one chanting their team in a scanty stadium. Well, this is a clash of heavyweights in African football; it is an opportunity for the fans to see the players who ply their trade in Europe. Guys like Alex Iwobi, Andre Onana, John Obi Mikel…….

4:04 PM

Commentator I: Oh! That was the first blood drawn today; the Cameroonian number 19 jersey almost caught the shaky Nigerian goalie off guard there. Number 19, erm! Ermm!! Chipou-Moting

Commentator II: Chipou there is as fit as fiddle, despite concerns about his availability. The PSG man…. What a pass from Wilfred Ndidi there…

Commentator I: I can’t believe my eyes, I don’t believe it, Odion Ighalo sends the ball to Chibok with that strike. It is as if he trains with stones. Horrible!

4:18 PM

Commentator II: The Cameroonian defender with dada (dreadlocks) almost scores into his own net. Prayers of Nigerians back at home are really working now with the pressure mounted on the opponent’s goalmouth. 

Commentator I: Oops! Alex Iwobi there rolls on the turf for the umpteenth time today. Don’t know why he has to replicate the naira, falling every now and then.

Commentator II: Kikikki! Azu, don’t you see that this Cameroon coach looks like Ned Nwoko

Commentator I: No, that is the Ac Milan legend, Clarence Seedorf

Commentator II: Azu, forget that; legend or stout, I just know that his team has been poor after the early minutes rush.

4:32 PM

Commentator I: Goal! It’s like an offside from here, VAR seems to be absent in the nations cup.
