On Sunday, the 22nd of November, the Golden Eaglets' number one goal keeper, Dami Paul narrated his experience just before the 2009 FIFA under-17 world Cup with Prophet T. B. Joshua to a large congregation in The Synagogue, Church of All Nations.

“Before I introduce myself” Dami addresses the congregation, “I want to say thank you Man of God and everyone for your prayers and supports. I had an injury and was being treated just before the tournament. Four days before the tournament, my coach told me that if I didn't recover in time, I would be dropped from the team”.

Before then, Dami went to The Synagogue Church of All Nations for prayers, and the man of God, Prophet T B Joshua, encouraged him, telling him not to worry that he would bounce back before the tournament.

The Golden Eaglets' first choice keeper shed tears while addressing the large congregation.

A day before the tournament, Paul told his coach that he wanted to go home to see his mother. He cried to his mother who encouraged him and told him that God would definitely do it.

Later, Dami called The Synagogue, Church of All Nations and Prophet TB Joshua asked one of his evangelists to tell him not to worry that he would play the tournament.

Dami went back to the camp the next day and to his greatest surprise he felt no pain while jogging. He trained with the team and the doctor confirmed he was fit.

This shows that God was really involved in Dami's recovery and performance. He did well throughout the tournament. He was acclaimed one of the best goalkeepers in the tournament because he eventually took his country, Nigeria, to the finals of the 2009 FIFA Under-17 World Cup.
