World Cup 2018: Nigeria loses first match 2 – 0 to Croatia



World Cup 2018: Nigeria loses first match 2 - 0 to Croatia | BellaNaijaDid you see the match? Well, all of us here did.

Sadly, in the Super Eagles of Nigeria’s first match in the 2018 World Cup, against Croatia, they did not soar.

First, Etebo Oghenekaro scored an own goal in the 32nd minute.

Then, in the 71st minute, William Troost-Ekong gave away a penalty, which Luka Modric put safely in the net.

Hopefully, the Super Eagles play better in the 2 group matches left.

      When I said here on B.N that our focus should not be on the best Jersey, someone nicely said “at least we’ll lose in style”. I hope you are happy now. Super Eagles, always giving us HBP! Rubbish!!!!!

      @Marsala, rather lose wearing the best jersey than LOSE wearing the WORST jersey. The SE did not lose because of their jerseys.

    There were so awful. I expected more or maybe my expectations were too high. It will take a miracle for us to win .?

      ??. A listless performance. What does Mikel contribute to the game again?

    I still can’t sleep, so disappointed. We have a wrestler as defender and our midfielder converting corner kick for the Croatians, what they could not do when we had our corner kick..

    Mikel is the most annoying of all the lot, always has, you have a girlfriend abi wife, what is the yanga for? nobody is checking you out! Play the game like your life depends on it. Not one of them did besides Iwobi.,that guy has the zeal he plays with his might. If we don’t work on our attacking skills we are going nowhere. Ugly truth !!! Least I forget play like a team.
