#ACN_2019: Nigeria Loses To South Africa In UYO

No Comments

The Super Eagles of Nigeria have lost  their 2019 Africa Cup of Nations to the Bafana Bafana of South Africa in UYO stadium Nigeria

The super eagles lost 2goals to nil with goals from Tokelo Rantie and Percy Tau in the 54th and 81st minutes ensured that South Africans got only their second victory over the Eagles.

Nigeria failed to utilize their opportunities as they controlled things for a larger part of the game but failed to take the initiative and would now seek redemption in their next qualifying game against Seychelles.

The absence of John Mikel Obi and Victor Moses has got many Nigerians talking as the super eagles paid dearly for failing to convert the numerous chances they got while also making it very obvious

The first goal came in after the Nigerian defenders were marking spaces and paved way for Rantie sneaking in to head in after Elderson Echiejile failed to deal with Mphahlele on the right hand side.

A bid to salvage the situation saw the team go all out for a corner kick and left the goalkeeper unprotected. The South Africans  took advantage of this mistake when Percy Tau scored with his first touch of the game after beating the offside trap, went round Daniel Akpeyi and finished it off brilliantly to make it 2-0.
