Remember the Nigeria vs India (1-99) match everyone talks about? Here’s all you need to know about it (With Pictures)  Nigeria vs India (1-99) match everyone talks about? Here’s all you need to know about it (With Pictures) 84530fa2b10a885a12327a653148f05a source nlp quality uhq format webp

Virtually everybody born before the invention of the internet must have heard the tale of a nonexistent football match between Nigeria and India that obviously took place in a parallel universe and somehow we got to hear the gory stories of that match.

Though there are many variations of the story, every prevaricator seems to agree on a couple of facts about this fictional football match. Each storyteller agrees that;

1. This match ended with India scoring 99 goals and Nigeria scoring just one goal.

2. Nigerians where unable to kick the ball because the football kept turning to a lion (or something scary) to prevent them from playing the soccer ball.

3. The Indians later agreed that if Nigeria could score a goal, they would concede defeat.

4. Samuel Okwaraji scored the winning goal and lost his life in the process.

5. FIFA banned India from soccer because they used black magic in that very game

With the help of common sense (not that it was absent back then), quick access to information and the internet, every right thinking Nigerian has come to realize that such a story should be filled under blatant lies.

The truth untold below:

Why Did This Story Thrive For So Long?

Image result for nigeria vs india 99-1  Nigeria vs India (1-99) match everyone talks about? Here’s all you need to know about it (With Pictures) 84530fa2b10a885a12327a653148f05a 2 source nlp quality uhq format webp

Most people like to pass off this story as true with the fact that no one has ever seen India in an International Football Match. Since no one actually saw India participate in most international soccer games, this gave a little credence to the story. India.

Another reason this lie could thrive for long was the fact that credible information was not readily available at our finger tips. It not like every Emeka, Audu and Ojo could visit Google in a matter of minutes and tell our ominous fabricators that they should stop spreading toxic lies.

And to be honest we have a tingling feeling that this lie was concocted by an elder of a community because, let’s be honest who questions the words of the elders in Nigeria. Remember, what an adult sees sitting down a child will never see even if he consults Google, Siri or Cortana.

The Element of Truth In This Story

On the 12th of August 1989, Nigeria lost Sam Okwaraji.

Sam Okwaraji was the player rumored to have lost his life in that game when in truth he died during a FIFA World Cup qualifying game against Angola in the 77th minute.

He collapsed and died of cognitive heart failure. May his soul rest in Perfect Peace. AMEN

So that is the only truthful thing about that story, the fact that a Nigerian player died during a football match. That’s it. The match was not against India, we did not lose the match and as you must have guessed, and there were no lions either.

What Is The Deal With India Anyway?

India qualified for the 1950 FIFA world cup as a result of the withdrawal of their scheduled opponents. But the Indian football governing body, the All India Football Federation (AIFF) decided against going to the world cup, being unable to understand the importance of the event at that time.

Some of the Reasons shown by the AIFF included the cost of travel, lack of practice time, team selection issued and valuing the Olympics over the FIFA World cup. It should be noted that FIFA agreed to bear a major part of the travel expenses, but it did not really help their decision making.

Was India Banned For Refusing To Play Barefoot?

Image result for Indian national team  Nigeria vs India (1-99) match everyone talks about? Here’s all you need to know about it (With Pictures) 8432096751 5789461302

No.

The 1948 London Olympics was India’s first major international tournament, where a predominantly barefoot Indian team lost 2 -1 to France.

Following the 1948 Olympics FIFA imposed a rule banning barefoot play.

The belief that the Indian team refused to play because they were not allowed to play barefoot is not entirely true according to the then team captain who said it was just a story to cover the disastrous decision of the AFIF.

After the 1950 fiasco, India has never come close to qualifying for the World Cup.

The reason you do not see India in World Cup competitions is because they do not qualify.

So Does The Indian Team Wear Soccer Boots?

Related image  Nigeria vs India (1-99) match everyone talks about? Here’s all you need to know about it (With Pictures) sunil chhetri india pti

Yes.

In the 1952 Olympics, the Indian team lost 10 – 1 to Yugoslavia (talking about taking a beating). As a result of this magnanimous defeat the AIFF made it compulsory for its team members to wear boots

Is it Possible to win a match with a 99 – 1 match margin?

Yes.

It is absolutely possible to rake 99 – 1 from a single football match. Let’s take a walk down memory lane and see how this is even possible. Now allow us to digress.

The highest scoring soccer game was 149-0!

Image result for highest scored game in soccer  Nigeria vs India (1-99) match everyone talks about? Here’s all you need to know about it (With Pictures) Fun Fact 59 900x608

You’re probably wondering how a soccer team could be so bad that they let 149 goals be scored, but the truth is it was a form of protest. The event occurred in 2002 after a 2-2 draw between rival teams Stade Olympique de L’emyrne, or SOE, and AS Adema of Madagascar, which resulted in the referees awarding a penalty causing SOE to lose the game.

During a match fixing debacle in Nigeria, the Feeders scored 72 of their 79-0 victory in 45 minutes of play. Police Machine scored 61 of their 67-0 victory in the second half. At one point, they scored four goals in a minute.

Arbroath won Bon Accord 36 – 0 in 1885. It held the largest margin of victory in professional football where both sides wanted to win.

So, yes, given the “right circumstances”, a team could actually receive 99 – 1 beating without any black magic whatsoever.

Gerrard speaks on replacing Chelsea-bound Lampard

gerrard speaks on replacing chelsea-bound lampard Gerrard speaks on replacing Chelsea-bound Lampard Steven Gerrard 1

Rangers boss, Steven Gerrard, has admitted he is aware of speculation linking him with the Derby County post.

However, the former Liverpool captain insists he is focused on the new season with the Scottish club.

Gerrard is believed to be Derby’s first choice, to replace Frank Lampard, who is expected to take the Chelsea job this week.

But Gerrard has stressed he has no intention of leaving “one of the biggest clubs you can manage”.

He told Sky Sports: “Yes I’m aware of it but there’s nothing to say on it.

“I’m very happy here, it’s a privilege to be the Rangers manager. My focus is on the up and coming season.

“It’s very similar to when there’s noise around players. I ask the players to stay focused on the job and that is what I will continue to do. There is nothing really to add to that.”

Asked if he wanted to re-affirm his commitment to Rangers, Gerrard added: “Do I have to do that for the sake of you?

“Nothing has changed in my mind. I was very lucky and appreciative of the opportunity I got 12 months ago.

“I’m delighted to be at Rangers, managing one if the biggest clubs you can manage, so nothing has changed in terms of my focus.”

Cameroon, the last African country standing at the 2019 Women’s World Cup, have been eliminated following a 3-0 defeat to England on Sunday.

The English ladies, who won all three group stage fixtures, completely dominated the Indomitable Lionesses.

Steph Houghton opened scoring from an indirect free-kick before Ellen White made it 2-0 late into added time in the first half.

Cameroon came out for the second half and pulled a goal back which was cancelled for offside before England sealed victory.

This result means that all three African representatives at the tournament have now quit the tournament.

Just yesterday, Nigeria lost 3-0 to Germany in a one-sided affair.
