Fans of Chelsea Football Club in Nigeria on Sunday held a thanksgiving in various churches on Sunday to celebrate the club’s triumph in the UEFA Champions League Final.
Kai Havertz scored the only goal of the encounter in the first half to give Chelsea a hard-fought 1-0 win over fellow English side, Manchester City, at the Estadio do Dragao in the Portuguese city of Porto on Saturday.
The victory gave Chelsea their second Champions League title after their 2012 triumph.
Following the win, the club’s fans gathered in a church as seen in one of the videos circulating on social media, dancing towards the sanctuary and happily singing worship songs in jubilation.
The fans were led by a middle-aged man, who wore a suit.
Some of the fans were spotted either donning a Chelsea jersey or memorabilia while dancing for their thanksgiving.
It is, however, unknown which part of Nigeria and the particular church where the thanksgiving occurred.
See below the video as shared on social media:
Another video that also went viral on Sunday showed some fans, presumably from the South-South part of the country, also singing and dancing joyfully towards the altar.
Some of the fans were seen wearing traditional attires – suggesting that they are either from Delta, Rivers or Bayelsa State – while holding aloft a Chelsea banner.
