NGA 3-1 SEY: Reactions as Nigerians frown at Asaba pitch

Nigerians have expressed their disappointment with the state of the pitch at the Stephen Keshi stadium, Asaba, as part of reactions to Nigeria’s 3-1 win over Seychelles in the AFCON2019Q on Friday.

The Super Eagles survived a scare from the Pirates of Seychelles to secure all three points in their final match in the AFCON2019Q.

Goals from Odion Ighalo, who converted a first half spot kick, and two beautiful goals in the second half from Henry Onyekuru and substitute, Moses Simon, earned Nigeria a much needed win that sees them finish as group winners.

Rody Melanie caused a scare in the first half when he capitalised on a Francis Uzoho howler to cancel Ighalo’s opener for Nigeria. However, Onyekuru and Simon ensured Nigeria finished on a high.

After the match, Nigerians, who were not satisfied with the performance of the Super Eagles, took to their respective social media accounts to express their displeasure, with many particularly furious with the state of the Asaba pitch.

Here are some of the reactions;

With Nigeria set to host Egypt at the same venue on Tuesday, this fan is keeping his fingers crossed that the game will be moved to another stadium.

Still on the pitch…

Were there fans who celebrated the victory at least? Of course.

Finally, despite manager, Gernot Rohr, taking Nigeria to two major tournaments now without much problems, this fan still does not see what the Franco-German coach has done for Nigeria.

Do you agree with him?
