It is an unfavourable atmosphere for Super Eagles fans on X on Sunday.
How the game unfolded
The match delivered everything one could anticipate from a football game, resulting in two goals. Iban Salvador secured the lead for Equatorial Guinea in the 36th minute, but their advantage was short-lived as Victor Osimhen equalised for the Super Eagles just two minutes later, concluding the first half.
Following the interval, the Super Eagles took control of the game but were unable to establish a definitive lead.
Osimhen missed two excellent chances, while Sanusi Zaidu and Ademola Lookman also failed to convert their opportunities. Equatorial Guinea endured intense stoppage-time pressure to secure a crucial draw.
Super Eagles fans register their displeasure
According to one fan, even his local football team could string up passes more than the Super Eagles.
Super Eagles can only pray and dance
Another fan, obviously saddened by the results, didn't mince words when he described the Super Eagles as being good with prayers and dancing but rubbish on the pitch.
No hope lost
Another fan was optimistic that the Super Eagles could turn things around and even go ahead to win the tournament as was the case in 2013.
