After earning rave reviews in the first game, the Flying Eagles have been heavily criticised for their poor performance on Monday.
Nigerians have slammed Paul Aigbogun’s boys for their 2-0 defeat against the USA in their second Group B game of the U20 World Cup.
Sebastian Soto’s double condemned the Flying Eagles to their first defeat in Poland. Fans were disappointed that the match was also dominated by the Americans.
The result leaves the West African country with a must-win game when they take on Ukraine for their last Group D fixture on Thursday.
Football enthusiasts on Twitter have questioned the players’ technical abilities and also the coach’s football knowledge in the wake of the disappointing loss.
We are playing badly very very poorly#..#USANGA

The Nigeria U20 captain reminds me of the recent Ashley Young.

Even with 3 more hours this Nigerian boys will not score. No tactics, no team play, just boys in their 20s running around American teens .
