Super Eagles World Cup Exit

The Super Eagles of Nigeria failed to break the jinx against Lionel Messi’s Argentina in the World Cup after Marcos Rojo’s strike sealed the fate of the three-time African champions.

Prior to the make-or-mar encounter, the Barcelona star was on his way to bagging his worst World Cup outing which would have been capped by an early exit if the Albiceleste had eventually lost to Nigeria.

Argentina fans already uncertain of their fate got fed with hope as Messi found the back of the net in the 14th minute of the game.

In the end, despite Victor Moses’ leveler from the spot, Manchester United’s Rojo got the winner with 4 minutes left before added time.

Fans of the Super Eagles have been trading blame and most of them seem to be pointing at Odion Ighalo who missed two chances on goal.

Blames have been apportioned at the Referee, Coach and other players but this tweet summarises where the fans place the brunt.

 

And to cap it up, this particular tweet showed just how a section of the fans despise the former Watford striker.

Ighalo is reported to take responsibility for the loss. According to the Cable, he said:

“I take responsibility for this game because if I had taken those chances I had, that would have made it a different ball game now.”

“I missed a couple of chances that would have finished the game but that’s football because sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.”
