Angry Nigerian Fans Clamour For Okocha’s Eagles Return By Akeem Busari
Following the unimpressive performance of the Super Eagles after their first game against Croatia at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Russia, soccer-loving Nigerians are preparing to storm Aso Rock in protest over the shambolic display, clamouring for the return of mercurial midfielder, Austin Jay- Jay Okocha.
Nigeria lost its opening game to Croatia 0-2. And football fans have described the display as the worst by the team in recent times.
According to a disgruntled fan, “I am greatly disappointed by the way the boys played. The team lacks creativity, cohesion, and determination. That’s why we need experienced players like Okocha to return to the team” he posited.
Chinedu Nnamani, another angry football enthusiast, lamented the dearth of quality and skillful players in the team, hence the planned protest for Aso Rock.
“We are going to the presidency to protest against the lackadaisical display of this team. They are not playing the Nigerian way. And we believe a player like Okocha can help salvage the situation and restore our soccer pride”, he added.
