How Nigerians reacted to Super Eagles’ loss to Argentina

Nigerians on different social media platforms have reacted to the Super Eagles’ 2 – 1 loss to Argentina in the on-going FIFA World Cup 2018.

Argentine Captain, Lionel Messi, had put his side ahead with a 14 minutes strike.

But, Victor Moses leveled up for the Eagles through a penalty kick six minutes into the second half.

However, Rojo gave the South Americans their first win of the tournament with a clinical finish less than 10 mins to the final whistle.

In reaction, some Nigerians expressed sadness over the outcome of the game, but a good number of citizens were either indifferent or positive in spite of the Super Eagles’ exit from the tournament.

Here are some reactions on social media:

@festus_kei: “A great performance by the SuperEagles. We fought a good fight. However, you win some, you lose some. Raise your heads you…”
