Chicago, Illinois • The Globe Pub • February 4, 2006

Yesterday, ambulance I woke up at 5:30am to make sure I could watch the
African Cup of Nations quarterfinal between Nigeria and Tunisia.

The match began at 7am central time, and
The Globe Pub was packed and full of brilliant atmosphere.

Tunisia scored first, then Nigeria.
After playing 90 minutes the match was still tied 1 – 1.
Another 30 minutes would have to be played.
No one scored in extra time, so the match went
to penalty kicks.

Nigeria were down by two penaties, 3 – 1,
but found a way to come back and won the fixture 6 – 5.

A great result for the Pub, which was easily hosting over seventy supporters
for the Super Eagles, as well as many more football fans alike.

Photo above from the moment victory was Nigeria’s.

The match following; between Cote d’Ivoire and Cameroon,
played out in similar fashion, with the match going to
extra time and penalty kicks, in which the Ivorians won 12 – 13.
That’s heaps of penalty kicks, as the both goalkeepers
could not stop anything – and the match was only
decided when Cameroon missed.

Just watching both games was exhausting.
