Nigeria Football Federation receives Twitter ‘L’ after Tammy Abraham snub

Nigeria Football Federation receives Twitter ‘L’ after Tammy Abraham snub

Nothing pains more than a joy short-lived! That is the story of the Nigerian Twitter space on Thursday during the back and forth of Swansea striker Tammy Abraham’s international future.

The 19-year old (will turn 20 in 10 days) was one of the top 3 trending topics in Nigeria by Thursday evening and if you were wondering why? Here’s a summary of the events.

BOOM! The Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) twitter handle @thenff marched their way to social media with the big news from their website.

As expected, what followed was all sorts of reactions from fans, stakeholders and perhaps ‘Keyboard Warriors’ both positive and negative.
The happy one:


Here is also a Twitter dream coach knowing what’s next to be done.

There apparently were two types of those who did not want this news. 1. Those that believe there’s no need for him and 2. Those that want more look inwards. Here’s an example of 1.

And type 2.

Some other angles, what about this for a British accent?

But what concerns this young lady is the “fineness” of our lured Eagle. She’s searching ain’t she?

But as the celebrations continued, it was SkySportsNews that first mellowed down Nigerians.

Before more and more British tabloids drew more daggers!

And the almighty BBC

The first reaction came from an unlikely source Pius Adesanmi, highlighting who would lose in the end.

But the biggest ‘L’ expectedly went to the NFF.

NFF President Amaju Pinnick was not spared and reminded his past gaffes by this man. Nigerians hardly forget bad things sha.

Meanwhile, Aquila Sports Ltd CEO, Calvin Onwuka always feared this as he enumerated in this thread.

Could this truly be what Mr Pinnick is thinking right now?

The Ijaya 1 of Lagos asks a question of the NFF Prezido and many answers followed in the thread.

In the end though, this good Nigerian advises Tammy!
