The Selecao proved to be too much to handle, but fans believe they could have done better
Fans have taken to social media to lash out at the Super Eagles after their disappointing 4-0 loss to Portugal on Thursday.
Nigeria played Portugal at the Estadio Jose Alvalade in what was a preparatory fixture for the Selecao ahead of the Mundial that begins on the 20th of November.
The Super Eagles were expected to put up a good fight against a Portuguese side that did not have Cristiano Ronaldo. However, they flattered to deceive.
Nigeria’s play was mostly disjointed, they offered very little in attack, and they were dominated in midfield. Bruno Fernandes scored a first-half brace to give Portugal a comfortable cushion.
Emmanuel Dennis had a chance to put some respect on the scoreline, but he fluffed his lines from the penalty spot.
Two late goals from Joao Mario and Goncalo Ramos ensured that Portugal picked up a deserved 4-0 victory.
Fans took to social media to share their displeasure with the result.
When will the Super Eagles of Nigeria be great again? Our football has gone from top to bottom.

Clearly, we can now see why Rohr kept Emmanuel Dennis at arms length. That Nigeria continues to call him up after his pre-Afcon shenanigans shows why our team is in this deep a hole

A Nigerian coach should take charge of the Super Eagles let's learn from Senegal and Tunisia. For a foreign coach the money is all he is here for.

Whenever your favorite journalists hype up the NFF, remind them of how low Amaju pinnick and his board has brought the super eagle..
Remind them of the continuous humiliation the super eagles face because of their ineptitude.
Don't absolve Sunday Dare too

Argentina will never beat a Rohr team 4 goals to zero…
The problem we are having in Nigerian football is that we have too many Chelsea fc fanatics in Nigeria who wants to win every game they played. Check the super eagles' win ratio with Rohr and without Rohr
