MADAGASCAR HUMBLED THE SUPER EAGLE FROM THE 2019 AFCON

Nigeria could not stop Nicolas Dupuis’ men and suffered a humiliating loss in their final group outing at the Alexandria Stadium. 
Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr admitted his players were not good enough after their disappointing 2-0 defeat against Madagascar at the 2019 African Cup of Nation (Afcon) on Sunday.
The defeat ended the Super Eagles unbeaten run of nine games in the biennial showpiece since 2010. As a result, Nigeria finish Group B as runners-up.

Mikel's Off Day There was so much expectations on the shoulder of Mikel ahead of the AFCON but his performance on Sunday left so much to be desired.         

Mikel needs to improve subsequently or the call for his retirement will hit the roof top!

Ighalo And Etebo Won Tackles. The duo of Odion Ighalo and Oghenekaro  Etebo won lots of tackles in the game. Before it all went wrong eventually for the Eagles, Ighalo had to drift back and win balls.

And No Support For Ighalo, The China based striker was mostly isolated barring a few times that Ahmed Musa troubled the Madagascan defence.  

Perhaps Gernot Rohr could implement a two man strike force in the Round of 16 to reduce the pressure on Ighalo.        

The Improved Support From The Nigerian Fans The Nigeria Football Supporters Club were in the stands to cheer the Super Eagles against Madagascar and that was pleasing to see. Unfortunately the performance on the evening did not match the support.
