Super Eagles

Despite the 2-1 loss to Argentina, in what will be Nigeria’s final game at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, celebrities in the country have paid tribute to the Super Eagles for their efforts in the tournament.

Marcos Rojo, an Argentina player, scored a stunning late goal against Nigeria to rescue Argentina’s World Cup hopes on Tuesday, progressing from Group D alongside Croatia to set up a last-16 match against France.

Lionel Messi scored his first goal of the tournament in the first half but Victor Moses equalised shortly after half-time to put the South Americans on the brink of an exit before Rojo’s late strike.

Celebrity football fans such as Wizkid, Banky W, Olamide, Mr. P, Rude Boy, Adekunle Gold, Ubi Franklin amongst others have reacted to the loss on social media.
