AFCON Qualifier : Bad Luck Our Only Luck – Sani

A former Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Shehu Sani has cried over the failure of Nigeria to beat Guinea-Bissau in an AFCON qualifier in Abuja on Friday.

Nigeria entertained and lost disgracefully to the Djurtus of Guinea-Bissau in the first leg of their double-header AFCON qualifier matches at the Moshood Abiola Stadium, Abuja.

The Super Eagles conceded in the 29th minute through a goal from Esperance Sportive Troyes Aube Champagne forward, Mama Balde.

Balde ran in between Nigeria center-backs Kevin Akpoguma and Calvin Bassey, to slot into the net of  goalie Francis Uzoho.

Several attempts to restore parity in the game by Nigeria was resisted by the Djurtus who stood their grounds.

So, this would be the first time in history that Guinea-Bissau will win against Nigeria. And the loss also implies that Nigeria under Jose Peseiro has lost five consecutive games.

And many Nigerians have different opinions about the game. But majority is blaming the tactics of the coach, the poor State of the stadium, poor officiating and bad luck.

Reacting about the game, the 55-year-old rights activist, suggested that Nigeria stays away from anything football until after May 29.

He said, the reason is for the welfare, peace and health of the various hearts of soft-minded Nigerians. He stressed that ‘bad luck’ has become the only luck currently peculiar to the Nigeria people.

Nigeria should stop AFCON qualifier matches:

“For the peace and health of our hearts, it’s better we stop playing any international football tournament until after May 29th. Bad Luck has become our only luck,” the former Kaduna-Central Lawmaker wrote on his verified Twitter handle Friday evening.

“It’s one match in two, any team can lose. I believe if we can play(again) like we played today(Friday), we can beat any team,” Jose Peseiro said ahead of the reverse fixture on Monday.
