Sunday Oliseh recorded his first loss since he took over as Super Eagles coach today, as Congo defeated Nigeria 2-0.
The social media space has been buzzing ever since. Some claiming the loss was due to the inability of the coach to manage the team, while others think the players aren’t good enough.
There was also drama on the field, as Chelsea midfielder, Mikel Obi, refused to collect the captain band from substituted Ahmed Musa which Onazi later stepped up to collect.
Here are how some Nigerians reacted to the loss on social media.
Kelechionolli Nkoro (@ K1Says) said “We are rebuilding a Hole to put the dead Eagles…. Shame on everyone that supported the selection of Oliseh as Coach.”
