The dour drama raging the senior Nigerian football team continued unto the field of play as they were down by two goals against Congo after just about 30 minutes of play. It didn’t funny oh
For Oliseh, it is now 1 draw, 1 win, and 1 loss.
For the players, time to live up to their professional paradigm. No time for dulling!
For we the fans, we want a win on Sunday against Cameroun. Eagles should soar oh!
Here below is the match report;
Sunday Oliseh endured a first defeat as Nigeria coach on Thursday as the Super Eagles went down 2-0 to DR Congo at the Stade de la Cite de l’Oie, Vise, Belgium.
The defeat exacerbated the difficult few days that has been experienced by the team and their fans.
Oliseh, who took charge in July, and Nigeria, have endured a difficult week following reports of a bust-up in theirtraining camp and the subsequent international retirement of goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama, with first-half goals in Liege proving the difference.
The Nigerian Football Federation played down the incident as a “misunderstanding which has now been resolved”, but in Enyeama’s absence, goalkeeper Carl Ikeme conceded after just eight minutes.
Ikeme was beaten low to his left by a Dieumerci Mbokani strike from inside the box, and Jordan Nkololo doubled the advantage shortly after the half-hour mark.
Ogenyi Onazi went close with a free-kick for Nigeria before the break and John Obi Mikel tested Parfait Mandanda 25 minutes from time, but there was no way back for Nigeria.
