    Stanley Nwabali, Super Eagles

    Others needed to step up

    The Super Eagles players depending on (Stanley) Nwabali to save Nigeria was an absolute misplaced priority.  The goal was the GOAL not Nwabali. I wish the Super Eagles played better than what we all watched. – TeeKeyz

    Jose Peseiro, Nigeria

    Coach to blame?

    Nigeria lost this game because of the decisions of the head coach. Why play Calvin Bassey in defence and leave your midfield exposed because Alex Iwobi was not noticed throughout. Adingra has Ola Aina in his pocket all day. Aina should have played his left wingback position. – Ticklefari
