Twitter reacts to Super Eagles draw with Cape Verde

Gernot Rohr’s Super Eagles couldn’t beat the Sharks of Cape Verde but they managed to get the needed draw to book their place in the playoffs of the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.

The football fans, who have been reacting right from the blast of the whistle via social media, have much to say concerning the draw at the Teslim Balogun Stadium on Tuesday evening.

After the 2-0 win over Liberia last Saturday, the Super Eagles headed into the encounter needing just a point against their visitors to finish top of Group C.

The Super Eagles got off to a flying start when Napoli man Victor Osimhen cooly slotted past Josimar Dias for the game’s opening goal in the first minute.

But that lead didn’t last long as they were pegged back four minutes later when a corner kick was missed by the team’s defence, which allowed Lanique ‘Stopira’ Tavares to stab home.

Goalkeeper Josimar was in fine form as he denied the likes of  Joel Aribo and Victor Osimhen on multiple occasions to keep his side in the game.

However, nothing much happened in the second half as Rohr’s men finished top of Group C after garnering 13 points from six games.

The Super Eagles supporters have shared their feelings concerning the result, with many praising goalscorer Osimhen and many criticised the gaffer for the three-time African champions’ poor showing.
