Popular Nigerian entertainer DJ Cuppy has dumped Arsenal for their Premier League rivals Manchester United after Nigeria’s Odion Ighalo’s goal helped the red devils book FA Cup semi-final ticket.
Ighalo, 30, was left unmarked in six yards away from goal as he flicked the ball past Tim Crul in goal.
And just before kick-off of the game, DJ Cuppy had dared the Nigerian to score promising that she will officially become a Manchester United fan.
She had tweeted: “As a Nigerian I think it’s only right that if Odion Ighalo scores a goal today… I will officially join Manchester United as a fan.”
To confirm her decamp to Manchester United fan base, after the game, she tweeted:
However, Norwich delayed the party for the Red Devils as Todd Cantwell grabbed an equalizer in a spectacular fashion in the 75th minute to make it 1-1.
The Canaries suffered a big blow late on when Timm Klose was shown straight red following a foul Odion Ighalo and the hosts were reduced to ten men.
It was 1-1 at full-time and the game extended into extra-time. Tim Krul put up a breathtaking performance denying United on several occasions, but Harry Maguire fired home a late winner for the Red Devils as Manchester United cruise to the semi-final of the FA Cup. It ended: Norwich 1-2 Manchester United.
Below are reactions, welcoming her to the football club:
