Super Eagles Squander 4-1 Lead To Salvage A Draw Against Sierra Leone by emdidy: 8:22pm On Nov 13, 2020
It was a comedy of errors culminating into an utterly disappointing evening as the Super Eagles of Nigeria squandered a 4-1 first half lead against The Leone Stars of Sierra Leone to end the game 4 apiece in their 2021 African Nations Cup qualifying match.

The game, which was played at the Samuel Ogbebudia Stadium in Benin City, Edo State, ended up to be one that many Nigerians would want to forget in a hurry. Despite the huge expectations of a smooth victory to give the Super Eagles a better chance of qualifying for the biggest football competition in the continent, the Nigeria national side showed that perhaps, they were not mentally ready for the task at hand.

The goals started pouring in as early as the 4th minute of the match when Alex Iwobi made it 1-0 to the Super Eagles. Victor Osimhen added the second goal in the 21st minute and Iwobi scored a brace to make it 3-0. Samuel Chukwueze joined the party as he included a 4th for the Eagles in the 29th minute. It was almost turning into a pool party for the Nigerian side before Kwame Quee scored what many thought was going to be a consolation goal to make the score line 4-1 at half time.

No one would have predicted a comeback for the Sierra Leoneans in such circumstance. Nigeria's coach, Gernot Rohr, showed tactical deficiency and incompetence as his team was smoldered in an unprecedented manner by a relatively inexperienced Sierra Leone side. Nevertheless, it was a brilliant performance by the Leone Stars in the second half as they fought their way into salvaging a valuable point against the lacklustre, disgraceful Super Eagles of Nigeria. Two goals from Alhaji Kamara and another from Kwame Quee secured the fantastic draw for Sierra Leone.

The draw leaves Nigeria still top of Group L with 7 points, while Sierra Leone is third with 2 points.

The return leg of the tie will take place in Sierra Leone next week, Tuesday 17th November.

Thats football its not over until the final whistle .

Once there is tactical error from the bench due to wrong or right substitution thats when you will see this kind of result.

Super eagles substitution was wrong but our opponent substitution was right. Mind you we don't have small teams in football again.

Secondly experience matters a lot in the game of football. You cant compare their own experience with own , for instance Alhaji kamara came back from retirement in order to play against super eagles . and the guy justify his inclusion by scoring two brilliant goals.

In the game of football it is the bench that wins the match not the players on the pitch , coach ability to read the match from the bench then make fundamental changes that would bring the result.

We are meeting them again in their own backyard let's see how far it goes

Till then good bye for now.

I'm trying hard to understand what's happening here.

I still don't know why I hate football.

I only watch football so that I can have something to say when the LOUD guys are arguing about Messi and C.Ronaldo

Pathetic, I didn't watch the match but I followed proceedings online, was beyond shocked when I saw the final score cos I concluded at halftime that the match was already won by the super eagles. We need to re-jig and find good players to really add bite to this present crop of players.

I don't blame the coach in one bit because the government has blatantly refused to develop local leagues. Rorh had a tough time choosing his first eleven.

I couldn't help but watch tears roll down my cheek bones. Our football federation should be scrapped completely, the coach lacks ideas on how to turn things around for us. His substitutes were just useless. Nigerians have never had it this bad before. All round failure.
