The Nigerian, Super eagles, today, threw away a four-goal lead against Leone Stars of Sierra Leone. This match was played at the new Samuel Ogbemudia Stadium in Benin City, Edo State. The eagles settled for a disappointing 4-4 draw in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match. Alex Iwobi, who scored twice, Victor Osimhen and Samuel Chukwueze had given Nigeria a 4-0 lead, before Kwame Quee, Al-Hadji Kamara (two goals) and Mustapha Bundu getting the equalising goals for Sierra Leone in the second half. Notwithstanding, the eagles are still top in Group L with seven points with the second leg taking place on Tuesday in Freetown.
This final scoreline has, however, gathered a number of reactions and criticisms from Nigerians on twitter.
