It is not just doom and gloom that Icheoku is all about; no, when something uplifting happens -whenever there is something to celebrate in a country which has disappointed on so many expectations of many of her country men and women since her independence in 1960, we accord it the same attention! Today in far away Beijing at the Olympics, there is cause-celebre for Nigerians and Icheoku joins the teaming millions others in saying Congratulations Nigeria Men's Soccer (football) Team for your win over United States of America! Nigeria's captain Promise Isaac and Victor Obinna scored Nigeria's two goals respectively, while Sacha Kljestan gave the United States of America her only goal with an 88th-minute penalty kick. It was a 2-1 win over the United States who played with only ten men for 86 minutes of the 90 minutes game. There was an early minute red card by referee Wolfgang Stark following left back Michael Orozco's elbow on a Nigerian while jostling for position.
