Nigerians have reacted to the Super Eagles’ 2 – 1 loss to Argentina 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 as gathered by DAILY POST:
