The Nigerian Super Eagles stand a very slim chance of qualifying for next African Cup of Nations despite being defending champions. They lost their third game of the qualifying series 0-1 to Sudan in Khartoum yesterday.
They had managed one point out of a possible six points in the previous games against South Africa and Congo after a loss and a draw. Yesterday’s result leaves Nigeria at the bottom of their table with just one point.
This morning at about 9:00am, the team arrived the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport, Abuja and were welcomed by fans who showed their displeasure by booing the team. The intervention of uniformed men were needed to disperse the booing crowd.
It is definitely tough times for Nigerian football and things are not even looking brighter yet. Nigeria faces Sudan in Abuja on Wednesday in the return leg of the qualifying series.
