At the end of 90+4 minutes, Argentina had defeated Nigeria 2-1 to qualify to the 1/16th stage of the ongoing world cup in Russia – a perfect gift to Messi on his 31st birthday.
The game ended sadly for the Nigerians as they exit the tournament after all the pomp and pageantry. The players had promised their countrymen that they are going to bring the trophy home like every warrior would on their way to the battle field.
“A clear penalty” as Mikel Obi called it, was over-ruled by Turkish referee, Cuneyt Cakir after he consulted the VAR. This got the fans of the “Super Eagles” peeved as they desperately looked for a place to vent their anger and frustrations; lo and behold, they found the referee’s IG handle and it has not been calm since.
Take a look
Nigerians lost their cool
Amadioha was invoked
Some even played the racist card
Naija really bore
It goes on and on
