The African Cup Of Nations 2021 has just been concluded with Senegal taking home the trophy after defeating Egypt in penalty shoot-out.
AFCON 2021 definitely brought so many surprises with some popular team exiting the tournament earlier than expected while some not so popular team stayed on the tournament longer than expected.
As surprising as it was, followers of popular prophet, Primate Elijah Ayodele were not caught unaware as the prophet already prophesied before the beginning of the tournament all that was going to happen from the beginning till the end of the tournament.
This was made known during the release of his 2022 prophecies on Wednesday, 22nd Of December, 2021 at his Lagos church. A sports journalist had asked the prophet on what the super eagles of Nigeria should expect at AFCON 2021 since the man of God is also a Nigerian. In his response, he categorically said the super eagles are not going anywhere despite being one of the strongest team in the tournament. He added in the prophecy that they will be eased out technically in the tournament.
This statement by the man of God was perceived by some as false because they didn’t see what the prophet was seeing at that time. Super Eagles team had brilliant performances in their first three games but were unexpectedly knocked out by a weaker Tunisia team by technicality, as Primate Ayodele prophesied.
Going further in the 90-page 2022 prophecies signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Primate Ayodele mentioned some teams that cup before the tournament started. It has always been the style of the man of God to prophesy ahead of events as prophecies are to give details of what is yet to come.
Among those he mentioned are close to the cup include Egypt, Cameroun, and Senegal and we all know these three teams played the Semi-Final and Final. Cameroun took on Burkina Faso to emerge third in the tournament while Senegal took on Egypt to emerge winner of the competition.
Though heavily criticized for his sports prophecies, Primate Ayodele has been able to prove that God is interested in every areas of man’s life including the most ‘unserious’ thing like sports. AFCON 2021 prophecies have once again proven that Primate Ayodele’s prophetic call is genuine.
