Super Eagles Back To Hostile Reception

Super Eagles Back To Hostile Reception

The Super Eagles returned to the Nigeria capital Abuja on Sunday morning to a riotous welcome from irate fans at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport.

The Eagles handled by Stephen Keshi on a stop-gap basis, were defeated 1-0 by Sudan’s Falcons of Jediane on Saturday to put their chances of qualifying for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in jeopardy.

The team have now lost two games after three qualifying games and will miss the chance to defend the trophy they won in 2013 if they fail to win all their remaining games in the qualifying series while their group rivals drop points.

Completesportsnigeria.com scooped that soldiers stationed at the international airport had difficulty dispersing the crowd, moments after the Eagles arrived via a chattered Air Sudan flight.

The Eagles were unable to leave the airport as insults were directed to the team by visibly angry fans.

The team are expected to begin training on Monday morning ahead of the reverse fixture against the Sudanese on Wednesday.

    How are we sure they will qualify, Can this team beat the Congolese in their own ground? Even if we defeat S.A and Sudanese here, which am not even sure of the result yet,because S.A have a better team at the moment that Super Eagle. Most of the player Keshi invite are nowhere to be found in Europe. Except the like of Onazi, Eayema and Emenike. No doubt about it, S.A will qualify and the Congolese will not just sit back at their home ground and allow the eagle to take away 3 point at their backyard. I believe this is a grace to Nigeria football generally, Its a shame that we won Nation Cup and we don’t qualify to defend it. Keshi can only be blame for his bride for thinking that the like of IK Uche and Martins are not good for his team. He did same thing in Togo toward Emmanuel Adebayor before 2006 WorldCup

    Eagles that I have seen that lost two matches cannot beat Congo in Pointe Noire talk less of beating Bafana Bafana,the players only know how to talk too much and do little in the pictch.I watched Nosa Igiebor falling like a pack of card. Kenneth Omeruo and Oboabona were just shadows of themselves, not to talk of creative and combatant midfielders namely Mikel and Onazi.
    Martins dont merit a shirt in the team but he is better that Gbolahan Salami twenty times. I dont even know how Keshi invited those player from china who are not better that Abia warrior players nor Warriwolves.
    Bye bye to Morocco 2015.
