A lot of Nigerians have showed their disappointment after the Super Eagles lost out and failed to qualify for the AFCON 2017 scheduled for Gabon.
While many people blamed the down fall of the Super Eagles on the former National Coach, Sunday Oliseh, others lambasted the Nigeria Football Association (NFA).
Nigerians trash NFF, Oliseh for Eagles AFCON failure
encomium.ng gathered tweets of Nigerians on the issue:
Veronnyodili – The Super falcons should take over super eagles. What? Can’t they play better? Obviously? Or the under 17 boys.
FemiTRIPP – I still think it was a mistake hiring Sunday Oliseh in the first place considering how he left super eagles.
DadaTitiloye – The NFF is to be blamed for appointing an I.T student “oliseh” when we had chartered and professional coaches to select from.
Josites- it is obvious Oliseh was a huge mistake by the @nff he he shouldn’t have been hired in the first place.
El-Gandalf – where is the Stupid Sunday Oliseh? He has landed us in a tight corner and ran away. FOOL.
Euginhocortez – so we can’t frame Oliseh for coup plotting or something? I really think he should go to jail. Let’s tell Fulani Herdsmen he killed a cow.
Uj_Okaro – They blame Oliseh but forget that someone hired him and christened him pep Guardiola of Africa.
Terance_Nwachi – Pinnick should be punched for calling Oliseh the Guardiola of Africa. What a useless coach.
Nigeria’s National Football team, Super Eagles have failed to qualify for the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) after losing by a lone goal to the Pharaohs of Egypt on Monday, March 29, 2016 in Alexandria, Egypt.
Ramadan Sobhy scored the lone goal that qualified the Egyptians.
Nigeria’s chances became slimmer after Chad’s withdrawal from the AFCON qualifiers due to lack of funds. Egypt topped the group, leading Nigeria with two points and Tanzania on one point. The Chadian’s decision created a situation where only one team could qualify, as against the original scenario where the second-placed team could go through if it amassed enough points to finish as one of two best second-placed teams.
