Players and staff of the national team came under fire after it failed to secure at least three points from a possible six. A form which leaves them sitting on gh third spot in the Group C qualifier groups.

“It’s really sad to know that we have the best players in the world, but it is difficult to win games convincingly these days. It is really sad,” she wrote on her Instagram page and was quoted by Daily Post Nigeria.
