SM Reactions: Nigerians roast Rohr, Moses, praise Etebo

Nigeria began the 51st edition of the FIFA World Cup in disappointing fashion, after a 2-0 loss to Croatia on Saturday. Oghenekaro Etebo’s unfortunate own goal gave the Europeans a first half lead, before Luka Modric converted a late second half penalty to seal victory and all three points.

The result means Nigeria have now failed to win the opening game in their last four appearances at the World Cup.

However, the latest result has elicited a lot of reactions from visibly disappointed Nigerians, who have taken to their social media accounts to voice their displeasure.

Here are some of the reactions as they vent their frustration on the coach, and players.

Let’s start with those who have blamed the coach, Gernot Rohr, in a country with a population of over 180million, you shouldn’t be surprised to see several coaches.

This particular Nigerian didn’t hold back, going as far as calling the coach a ‘failure’

More “bashing” for the coach…

An ex international was not left out…

But Victor Moses was one player who was shown no mercy at all..

Now, despite his own goal handing Croatia the lead, Nigerians rewarded Etebo for his good all round performance by showing him some love.

Back to the coach, this time they question his changes in the game.

However, while Croatia may have won, these fans weren’t that impressed by their performance.

And this fan has another view of the game, especially Nigeria’s performance.

But not this octopus…

Finally, unlike the octopus, these Nigerians have decided to take solace in Nigeria’s beautiful kits.

And what do the players say to that?
