The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON 2019) group stage is a wrap, leaving fans of the Super Eagles are tightly unimpressed.
Despite the weak start, the Nigerian team has managed to make it into the round of 16, leaving us wondering if they will make it beyond this stage.
If you are a pro-Super Eagles fan, this should be very concerning. Considering that the team will face Cameroon in three days to decide who goes on to the quarterfinals.
Yes, it’s true that top teams have been struggling since the competition started, but let’s not forget that Cameroon is the defending champion.
The Super Eagles, on the other hand, struggled to bag 1-0 in their first two games, and they then ended up losing 2-0 to Madagascar in their last group game. The loss was a disgrace, to say the least, and we might end up seeing Cameroon kick Nigeria out of the tournament.
While it’s looking like the trophy isn’t for the Super Eagles, it could also go the other way.
If the team uses the loss as motivation, they could end up surprising us. To ensure that, some fans believe that the coach, Gernot Rohr, should make some changes to the team.
Well, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed as we watch this highlight from their previous game.
