Nigerians and Ghanaians on social media trolled the Super Eagles after they failed to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar following their 1:1 draw with the Black Stars of Ghana on Tuesday evening.
Ghana qualified on the competition’s away goal advantage after holding the Super Eagles to a goalless affair after last Friday’s match at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi, Ghana.
Nigeria hosted arch-rivals Ghana in the second leg of the 2022 World Cup playoff on Tuesday at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja.
Nigeria failed to win their match against Ghana in Abuja on Tuesday to be able to qualify for the World Cup.
A Qatar ticket would have been the country’s fourth successive appearance at the global tournament.
Football pundits and fans blamed the Super Eagles’ lack of enthusiasm for the draw with the Black Stars.
On Twitter, both Nigerians and Ghanaians are trolling the Super Eagles under the hashtag #SuperChickens.
Ghanaian politician Sam ‘Dzata’ George wrote: “Whilst we watch the Black Stars of Ghana in Qatar, dear Nigerians, you can watch the Super Chickens in a witchcraft movie on Netflix.”
