“Our plane tried to land twice and had to come back up because there were other planes in our way,”–Miley Cyrus.

As it turns out, air travel can be just as big a nightmare for the rich and famous as it is for us common folk.
Recently, Miley Cyrus flew out to the U.K. for the Glastonbury music festival, and was joined on the flight by her family, her management team and her band. However, the trip apparently didn’t go off without a hitch.
According to Miley’s older sister, Brandi Cyrus, everything was going fine until it came time to land, at which point the experience got dicey.

“Our plane tried to land twice and had to come back up because there were other planes in our way,” Brandi recounted to co-host Wells Adams during the latest episode of their podcast, Your Favorite Thing.

“Out of nowhere, as we’re landing, we swoop back up and like bang to the left and turn. It feels crazy,” she recalled, adding that her mom, Tish Cyrus, and her sister are “very nervous fliers, and when they get nervous they just feed off of each other, and just make each other more nervous.”

 

“They just start losing their minds,” she recalled. “And even though I’m scared, I was like, ‘Someone has to be level headed here’… so, Miley’s in my lap, my mom’s holding my hand across the aisle… and nobody is telling us what’s going on.”

After a full five minutes of terror, Brandi said she could tell that they’d basically flown right back to altitude, and that’s when the passengers were told what had happened.

 

“They finally come back and tell us, ‘No need to panic but somebody was in our lane in the sky and we were going to hit them,'” she recalled. “That’s terrifying to think about.”

Brandi said that they then tried to descend again after circling the runway for 10 minutes, and, “The same frickin’ thing happens!”

“My mom starts crying and goes, ‘If we die, Noah is gonna be alone’ and freaking out. I’m trying to hold it together for everybody,” she shared. “It was really crazy.”

Luckily for all of those on board, and all of Miley’s fans, the plane did eventually land successfully, and the “Mother’s Daughter” songstress went on to rock the Glastonbury Festival with one wildly raunchy performance, proving that even near-death experiences can’t put her off her game.

Nwankwo Kanu hailed Nigerians for their support as Super Eagles slid into semi final of 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.

Nigeria and Arsenal legend, Nwankwo Kanu has hailed Nigerians for their support as Super Eagles slid into semi final of 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON.

Kanu, who had earlier expressed confidence that Gernot Rohr’s men would beat the Bafana Bafana at the Cairo International Stadium, congratulated Super Eagles on their victory against South Africa on Wednesday night.

Samuel Chukwueze gave Super Eagles a 1-0 lead at the break after an assist from Alex Iwobi.

However, South Africa levelled in the second half, thanks to Video Assistant Referee (VAR) decision.

With the match looking to head into extra time, William Troost-Ekong forced the ball over the line in the final minute of play.

The 42-year-old, in a video posted on his official Twitter page on Wednesday, wrote:

“Incredible support from Nigeria Super Eagles fans. Another fantastic win well done boys.

“The boys gave it a great teamwork effort and push. We are all proud. Nigeria officially through to the #caf2019 semifinals. We thank God.”

The victory over South Africa means Nigeria will now play the winner between Ivory Coast and Algeria in the semi-final on Sunday.

Incredible support from @ng_supereagles fans. Another fantastic win well done boys.The boys gave it a great teamwork effort and push. We are all proud. Nigeria officially through to the #caf2019 semifinals. We thank God.

Nigeria Vs South Africa: How Kanu Nwankwo reacted to Super Eagles 2-1 AFCON victory [VIDEO]

“We are very happy we won this game against them–William Troost Ekong

Super Eagles defender, William Troost-Ekong, has blamed himself for the first goal Nigeria conceived against South Africa at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nation, AFCON, quarter-final encounter on Wednesday night.

He also identified Gernot Rohr’s side as the favourite team to win this year’s AFCON after dumping South Africa out from the competition with a 2-1 victory.

The 25-year-old, who scored the winning goal against South Africa, noted that before the quarter-final, it was the host nation, Egypt that were favourite to win the AFCON but the Bafana Bafana defeated them last weekend.

“Before the game we showed South Africa a lot of respect because they are a good team,” Troost-Ekong told SuperSport.

“We played them last year in the qualification and they won us at home and we drew at their home.

“We are very happy we won this game against them. And I am happy to have scored the winning goal after the mistake I made in the goal we conceived against them during the second half.

“We have a very good team to win the AFCON and before the quarter final everybody were talking about Egypt as the favourite to win this year’s AFCON and South Africa beat them and after that they became favourite and now we have beaten South Africa.”
