The Nigerian Super Eagles will not participate in the 2017 AFCON tournament after their failure to qualify for the games.

Although they had several shots at qualifying, their first leg match against Egypt which resulted in a draw lowered their chances.

To add salt to injury, Chad dropped out of the game stating financial reasons and the Eagles were left with one chance: Win or Get Lost!

The Eagles faced the Egyptian Pharaohs for the second time on March 29. Unfortunately for them, the Egyptian Pharaohs came hard this time, scored the only game of the match and earned a 5 point lead.

When you realise the Nigerian Super Eagles will be missing the AFCON tournament for the second time.

What a disappointment!

Kuku kill us in this country.

Could this be why they didn’t win the game?

The team are now a shadow of what they used to be.

Who is to be held responsible for disappointing Nigerians like this?

Could it be the exchange rate?


On the bright side, they’ve helped us save our money.

The team begged Nigerians sha..

But apology cannot buy fuel or wipe disappointment sha.

In the end, Arsenal FC still takes the biggest L.
