Myth Revealed (The Truth About The Nigeria Vs India Match)

October 8, 2019

THE TRUTH ABOUT THE NIGERIA VS INDIA MATCH This is one of the oldest lie (or should I
say myth that I know of) and am sure almost every Nigerian born in the 1990s can relate
to this. Most, if not all of us have heard of the story
that goes thus: During a particular world cup edition, the 1990 World Cup, as it is
in some cases. Nigeria was pitted against India and India
was leading Nigeria by 99 goals. each time Nigerian players are about to score or when
the Indian players kick the ball at Nigeria’s goal, the Indian players by use of some magic,
(maybe black or white, I don’t know) always change the ball into some form of hideous
creature which makes the Nigerian players run away from the ball. This had apparently been going on throughout
the game. Five minutes to the end of the match, the
Indian players sought to give Nigerian players respite and said if Nigeria could score a
single goal, they would concede defeat and accept Nigerians as the winner of the game. Well, the Nigerian players agreed to this
and the match went on. Samuel Okwaraji, being a very patriotic Nigerian
player, got the ball from an Indian Player, managed to dribble his way to the Indian team’s
18 Box and just when he was about to kick the ball, It turned into a very big stone
which would weigh thousands of tonnes. But Samuel Okwaraji kicked the ball with every
ounce of energy he had in his body, despite knowing he could die but he sought to sacrifice
his life so Nigeria can win the match. The ball soared, or should I say rolled into
the net, which was a goal and according to the agreement between Indian and Nigerian
Players, Nigeria wins the match. But Samuel Okwaraji was never to kick another
football again because, well. He died after he kicked the ball. This led to the world governing body, FIFA
banning India from active football for a hundred years. Really? If that isn’t the most absurdly,
bagful of lies, tall-tale story have ever heard. The whole nine yards is false. I don’t
think Nigerian has ever been pitted against india in any soccer game, and even if they
had, it’s not a game of magic vs soccer, I mean come on Nigerians, we also have our
own magic, especially the dark one, at least that’s what Nollywood movies portrays most
the time. Come to think of it, there is no way, all that stuff we were told about is
going to be happening on a soccer pitch and thousands will be watching it, not to talk
of the soccer officials. So how did Samuel Okwaraji really Die? Here it is: Samuel Okwaraji
lost his life while playing against Angola in the 1990 World Cup Qualifier. Ten minutes
to the end of the game, Samuel Okwaraji fell down on the pitch and immediate first aid
treatment could not revive him, so, he was rushed to the nearest hospital where he was
pronounced dead. Samuel Okwaraji died from and I quote “congestive heart failure.”
he didn’t kick a ball which had turned into stone which would weigh thousands of tonnes
and damn impossible to kick. As to India, India is not banned in Active football, India
hasn’t just qualified for the World Cup competition in a long time, well except since
1950, in which India was able to qualify for the world cup due to withdrawal of other teams
but declined to attend, one rumor being that they declined because FIFA wouldn’t allow
Indian Players to play barefoot, well that might be true but the truth behind the matter
as an associate editor of the journal Soccer and Society of India, put it: “A careful
study reveals that beneath the apparent financial difficulties given as cause of withdrawal
lay the A.I.F.F.’s unusual failure to appreciate the importance of participating in the Cup,
despite assurances from the organizing committee to bear a major part of the tour expenses.”
To India’s A.I.F.F. in 1950, the Olympic mattered to them more than the World Cup which
was not seriously taken into account. India has a National Soccer Team, you can
check it out on Wikipedia. India may not be good at Soccer but they aren’t pussies when
it comes to Cricket. So as to India being banned from Football for a Hundred Years,
that’s just another lie, and India using Black Magic against Nigeria in some Phantom
Match which was never officially or unofficially played, that also is a lie.

  1. This story originated from all the jobless uncles that stayed with us when we were toddlers. They had no jobs to go to and had to baby sit while our parents were away. They needed a good story to tell to keep us entertained.

  2. I remember that story in the late 80's when I was a kid told to me by some older kids in the neighborhood in Lagos. Like many other bullshit stories I heard growing up. This is probably how Nigerians developed their 419 scamming mentality.

  3. I will Answer Your All Question :….
    1. I don't know who is Your Samuel Okwaraji ๐Ÿ˜ฐ.
    2. No bro , India not Banned from Football. We host FIFA U 17 WORLD CUP in 2017…but your 5 time champion Nigeria not Qualified that Tournament….
    3. No .

  4. true story my daddy told me this when he was alive. even Samuel okwaraji friend those days named Andrew ahamogbe also said the same thing. this is a true story.

  5. please don't spoil my childhood with your "discoveries".

    All i know was that Indian were beating us (Nigeria) 99 to 0, before Samuel Okwaraji (RIP) Said "God give me my last power" he shot the ball and scored. later died on the football field resulting from the indian "juju".


  6. Actually, the ball turned into a lion not a stone by the aide of Indian Juju. Anytime the Indians played the ball to Peter Rufai, the ball changes into a lion's head and he'll simply allow it to pass. That also later affected Peter Rufai's eyes. Samuel Okparaji (Okwaraji) as we call him was the one who scored the only goal against India and he died after scoring on the pitch. I played the ludo game where Late Samuel Okwaraji was put as a hero there. This is the reason Indians were banned from playing football for 100 years by Fifa. And this lie is legendary.
    Don't come and spoil it with your discoveries abeg, Haba.
    So you mean I grew up believing a lie?
    How many more lies am I still believing?

  7. Well the myth does not include Samuel Okparaji but it was Thunder Balogun, and that is why they called him Thunder and he didn't die the myth, but his leg was broken beyond repair and it was amputated. Although it's a myth and fable.

  8. this is a B.S story i hope you know.
    1st Nigeria did not qualify for the Italia 90 world cup.
    2nd Okwaraji died before the world cup in 1990.
    3rd, He died during a world cup qualifier at the National Stadium in Nigeria (Lagos)
    4th Indians only play crickets and maybe use the insect as snacks.
    5th it will take approximately 85 seconds to take the ball from the net, stop rejoicing, and pass the ball by the losing how can they score 99 goals in 80mins?

  9. It was Nigeria vs Angola in a qualifier match, The match was even played in Lagos. The death happened 10 minutes to the end of the game.

  10. You people are liers which one should I believe every time you people tell lie about things it always come with differnt story so please stop telling lies

  11. Good attempt but the alleged match predate's 1990 world cup. Samuel Okwaraji death was in 1989 on the field of play against Angola. The supposed player that was said to have scored the one goal for Nigeria was "Thunder Balogun". Respect Bro.

  12. Even though this is a myth, the narrator got it wrong. This myth belongs to Teslim Thunder Balogun and not the late Sam Okwaraji. This myth has been making the round since the early 1960s way before Okwaraji's death.

  13. Ok, in the Ghanaian version, I heard the indian players were emerging from the ground and the referees' pockets

  14. the internet has deprived us of lies to tell the next generation.
    try telling a kid a story why the turtle have cracked shell and see
    if u dont sound stupid after they bombard you with facts from the web.

  15. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Lol Nigeria lost the game ..why are you blaming black magic ? first learn to play

  16. I heard of this myth story several times until today i watch the video proving that it's lie thanks u so much

  17. I also heard about this same India Vs Liberia, they beat Liberia 100 goals to 1, but the game was given to Liberia at the end..

  18. No… This story is not completely told… at the time, India had 11 players on the pitch while additional eleven was in the air, making them 22 players against Nigeria in addition to the lions and big heavy stones the ball would turn into, sometimes a bunch of palm-fruit, when Nigerians approach it. That was Indian talisman at it's best hahahahahahaha.

  19. I never believed that story even as a kid. And by the time I was leaving primary school, I learnt Nigeria's first world cup appearance was USA '94 (I started watching football in '94). Maybe today's 20 year olds believe that but I think it is highly unlikely because of access to the internet.

  20. this lie was planned by all Africa country, Nigerian believe this story.Ghana people said their elderly one also told them the same story that it was Ghana vs india ooh my God even Liberia people,now we all know the truth.but i tell you this Africa will continue to tell their children this lie story because they love to tell lie story's

  21. Fuck you shithole talks
    If you could recall India donโ€™t know how to play in any roles of football

  22. Congratulation for 99 goals to Nigerian team……and i would like to invite Nigeria play cricket with India then you see what can Indian player do ….

  23. India can't defeat nigeria if not for their black magic. .they use to kill our hero Samuel okwarji

  24. And we were told it was actually a game against Cameroon lol… they were even playing with slippers ..and so they banned them lol

  25. HahahahA… Actually, this funny story has been making rounds since the 70s. Can't believe it's still a thing. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

  26. Haha haha๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ‘ฃyes๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜Ž

  27. This story was never a lie jaree. It really happened. Proof is okparaji's death after he scored for us ๐Ÿ˜ช. May his soul rest in perfect peace

  28. I am from india and i don't know about this match before yesterday night. Even 99.99% indian don't know anything about it๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.

  29. In telling the truth, you also lied, NaijaPeek. That video clip you showed covering Samuel Okwaraji's death is actually that of Entourans Intachor who died in Sudan. Na wa ooo!!!

  30. The story did not start on the 90s but 70s and it was no okwaraji that scored the goal but teslim thunder balogun in the original story
