As the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations head into crucial quarterfinal stages, fans who have been watching across the globe have been treated to a fantastic spectacle.
However, the mother of them all was witnessed in the match featuring tournament favorites Nigeria and Guinea-Bissau.
Nigeria was leading 2-0 against Guinea when Kenyan referee Peter Waweru left fans in stitches with his ridiculous running technique in the 89th minute.
Waweru has gone viral for his quite brilliant running technique in the later stages of that match.
With a straight back, high knees and flapping arms, Waweru sprinted during a Nigeria counter-attack set play from the opposite goal creating a buzz from fans on social media.
