Former FIFA World Player of the Year and Liberia legend, George Weah, has joined the bandwagon of those criticizing the performance of the Super Eagles in the African Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Sudan last weekend.
Conducting an analysis on the game for ABN Sports channel, the retired AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain star aired his concerns, stressing that Nigeria allowed the North African opponents to dominate the match.
The retired Liberia skipper also pointed out that Sudan, who had been written off before the tie, caused a sensation by defeating the defending champions.
In his own words, George Weah said that Sudan controlled the game from start to finish, and Nigeria did not do anything meaningful during the contest at the Khartoum Municipal Stadium.
Ignoring added time, the Super Eagles had 48 minutes to get an equalizer and score the match winner, but the home team held on for one of their most famous victories in recent times.
George Weah believes the Falcons of Sudan have a chance of qualifying for their ninth African Cup of Nations on the back of the favourable result against the defending champions.
That said, Nigeria will be aiming to bounce back with a win against Sudan in the reverse fixture on Wednesday.
