Imagine beating the odds and correctly predicting the outcomes of seven out of the total eight Round of 16 matches in the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON). Sounds impossible, doesn’t it? But for one keen eye on the game, that’s precisely what happened. Let’s indulge you in this mouth-gaping tale of precision and foresight.
An individual accurately forecasted the outcomes of seven rounds of 16 matches in the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON), and gained attention because of it. This person’s uncanny ability to accurately predict the outcomes was nothing short of impressive.
Amadu Raheem Komba Gbandeh is the person behind these precise predictions. His accurate predictions include foreseeing Senegal’s loss in penalties and Nigeria’s victorious match against Cameroon. He even predicted the surprising victory of Cape Verde over Mauritania- each one came true, just as he foretold.
In Amadu’s earlier foresights, he had accurately stipulated that Guinea would prevail over Equatorial Guinea, and intriguingly, that Senegal would succumb to Ivory Coast during penalty shootouts. Just as anticipated, his predictions manifested.
Predictions for AFCON matches
Amadu also said that Mali would beat Burkina Faso and DR. Congo would triumph over Egypt, and these also happened.
His prediction about Nigeria beating Cameroon also came to pass, and the same thing happened in the game between Cape Verde and Mauritania.
However, Amadu’s prediction about the game between South Africa and Morroco failed as the former trashed the latter with two goals to nothing.
The man said:
“Just as I predicted, Cameron, Namibia, E. Guinea, and Egypt have all been knocked out. What makes it interesting was that Egypt got ousted on penalties just as I said a few days ago.”
He has predicted that Guinea will reach the finals and win the AFCON cup by defeating Cape Verde in extra time. He insists that Nigeria will not reach the finals but will make it to the semi-finals but will lose to Cape Verde.
“At the grand finale, Cape Verde will dominate the match and may likely score the first goal. However, the Guineans will come stronger which will see an equalizer. Guinea will then go on to win the match in extra time. Watch out for Guinea Conakry.”
Reactions to Amadu’s predictions
Habib Kemoh Gassama commented:
“That’s great, man, your predictions are working let’s continue to the quarter finals stage and if it will happen.”
Kazeem Taiwo Omo-Oduduwa said:
“You wrote this like you were a seer. We’ll revisit this after the semi-finals are played.”
“Omo this guy suppose dey drop sure odds o.”
