Tommy Yisa Aika, a self-styled prophet, said that Nigeria lost their opening match to Croatiabecause God was punishing them for hiring a white coach, Gernot Rohr.

To appease God, he has volunteered to intervene with his over 60 prayer warriors who are ready for action, "so that what has been destroyed can be readjusted to grant the Super Eagles divine favour all through the tournament".

Spiritual materials

Aika is however, asking for the sum of N750,000 ($2,000) which according to him, covers some spiritual materials.

"What I need is a token 750,000 (naira) to get some spiritual materials and also to give my prayer warriors as honorarium," he said in a television interview.

The Super Eagles play Iceland on Friday, needing a win to stay in the tournament, after they were beaten 2-0 by Croatia last Saturday.
