Nigerians have reacted to the Super Eagles’ 2 – 1 loss to Argentina on different social media platforms 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:
