Sometimes over-excitement makes us do things without thinking. You have probably done something funny or rash because of how excited you were at the moment, and each time you remember the incident, you find it amusing. Such was the case of former Nigerian goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama.
All the players who won it in 1994 had all retired by that time, and these players were eager to win the AFCON trophy for the first time. The game proved quite tough, but Sunday Mba's sttrike in the first half of the match made the difference.
Stephen Keshi, who was the coach at that time, was one of the players who won the AFCON in 1994. This, he became the first Nigerian to win the tournament as both a player and a coach. And that record is yet to be broken.
The Nigerian goalkeeper at that time Vincent Enyeama, overwhelmed with excitement, made an attempt to carry the Algerian referee on his shoulders, but the referee remained unmoved and no such thing happened.
