It’s your main man, Coach, back again with another exhilarating edition of Nigeria’s top sports magazine! I’ve got a knee-slapping sports joke that’ll make you laugh so hard, you’ll feel like you just won the championship! Ready? Here it comes!

Why did the soccer player bring string to the game?

Because he wanted to tie the score! 😂

Now, let me share a side-splitting anecdote related to this absolute howler. Picture this: it’s the 2002 Nigerian FA Cup semifinals, and the Enyimba FC is going head-to-head against the Shooting Stars. The atmosphere is electric, and the crowd is buzzing with anticipation.

As the game enters the final minutes, the score is deadlocked at 1-1. Enyimba’s star striker, Victor “The Viper” Obi, suddenly gets a bright idea. He pulls out a piece of string from his shorts and holds it up, grinning from ear to ear. The entire stadium erupts in laughter, and even the opposing team can’t help but crack a smile.

Victor’s little prank lightens the mood, and both teams play with newfound energy. Just as the string trick worked its magic, Victor “The Viper” Obi scores the winning goal, securing Enyimba’s spot in the final! And that, my friends, is how a hilarious joke can change the course of a match. Stay tuned for more uproarious tales and sports news from your favorite sportswriter, Coach!
