Nigeria Vs Argentina: Fans warn Super Eagles against defensive play

The Super Eagles of Nigeria have increased their chances of going for the Russia 2018 World cup by winning their Algerian counterparts by 3-1 on Saturday in Uyo.

That was the opinion of some of  football fans who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Abuja.

According to  Linus Ikenna, the Algerians paraded a lot of talents,but the god of soccer was not on their side.

“Having won Algeria by 3-1, winning Cameroon should not be a problem for the Super Eagles, they don’t have the stars they use to have before.

“They are just like our own players,I believe we are going to beat them in Yauonde, no matter what, he said.

Emeka Nduka, the match was not all bed of roses, but the Eagles still got the needed victory.

“ It was a great match, although the first half, we played like a team,but seems they were tired in the second half,we still win, I give them kudos for having six points”.

Christian Ikeji, another  Super Eagles fan said : I am very, very glad at the victory because it is only football that unite us as a nation.

“I pray for more victory so that Nigeria will be uniting every time we play. That is my own prayer. I praise the coach for a job well done,” he said.

NAN  reports that Victor moses scored twice for the Eagles while Chelsea team mate, John Mike Obi scored one of the goals.
