Seeking a world cup salvation, Argentina was able to beat Nigeria 2-1 after their abysmal performance in their previous game with Croatia.
So we went to check what is happening on social media and as usual, various platforms were barraging of the trolls, the rants and the consolation messages. Some Nigerians went the extra mile to find the referee who denied them of two penalties and ‘gave it to him’ well well.
We sampled a few of the reactions for you.
