The Super Eagles of Nigeria has lost 1-0 to Algeria in an international friendly match played on Friday in Austria.
The encounter against Algeria was the first game the Super Eagles were playing this year, following the entire football calendar disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Gernot Rohr despite withdrawals and injuries named a fairly strong side to face the Desert Foxes.
However, it was the African champions who took an early lead through Ramy Bensebaini who pounced on a rebound after Maduka Okoye has pushed an effort away, to score the only goal of the game.
Some Nigeria supporters have taken to Twitter to decry what was a poor display by the Super Eagles after the 1-0 loss to Algeria.
Nigeria will play their next friendly on Tuesday against another North African side, Tunisia.
Below are some comments;
@Itx_victoric: I dont even understand this team man….hope its because its just friendlies cause this guys cannot even qualify for AFCON #NGAALG
@FootballChef: This game has just reminded us that Wilfred Ndidi is the heart and soul of this Super Eagles set-up. Our midfield today was just above useless. #NGAALG
@NeeCJoe: There’s only one reason we lost that #NGAALG game We played utter rubbish! …but for that midfielder wearing red boot and Chukwueze
@NGfooty: FT Algeria beat Nigeria 1-0 in Austria. A lacklustre performance from the Super Eagles. #NGAALG
@ovieroskoles: #NGAALG That Nigerian Midfield is poor and it is the reason the team hardly had any shot on target. I can’t believe the absence of Aribo and Ndidi could be so obvious. While chasing the game the team could not even keep possession or keep the ball on the ground. Just hit and hope
@Henroh4: Naija played like one village league team nothing was professional about the ball. P.Onuachu one human being that I don’t like as a player too doll for football.#NGAALG
@Andygalant19: This match is just rubbish. Just wasted my data watching this nonsense. In 2020 we still have Ahmed Musa. Onachu should play basketball. Iwobi was okay but that’s what he usually is in games like this. Ekong #NGAALG
