Nigeria fans blame coach Eguavoen for defeat against Ghana

Published on: 11 July 2011

Nigeria fans are livid at the tactics implored by coach Augustine Eguavoen in their 2-0 defeat to Ghana on Sunday.

The Black Meteors thus pip their arch-rivals to the ticket of qualification for the All African Games on the away goals rule as both side were pegged at 3-3 at the end of the day.

The vociferous Nigeria supporters who were in significant numbers at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium have pinned their loss to 'the tactical bankruptcy' of their head coach.

"The coach cost us this game, " a fan told GHANAsoccernet.com after watching their beloved Dream Team V crush under the feet of the Ghanaians.

"How can you play 90+5 minutes without even attempting a goal on target, Eguavon doesn't have the mental strength to play away games."

Eguavon, a former Nigeria international dodged the lenses of the media even from his won country upon arrival at the team's hotel where he was said to have locked himself in his room all night.

Already there are calls for him to either resign or be sacked after failing to hold on to a significant 3-1 advantage carried from the first leg but a firm decision would be taken when the team returns to Nigeria.

    Ghana seem to be confirming their current superiority over Nigeria in football. After stopping Africa’s champions, the Falcons from the All Africa Games they have gone further to make a stronger statement over Nigeria by eliminating Nigeria’s Olympic team from the festival in Mozambique slated for September. Two goals, one in each half in Kumasi Sunday ended Nigeria’s dreams of any medal from football in Maputo. They played better and deserved their victory. It took only 10 minutes for them to fire the opener. Badu found the net with a free kick that the Nigerian keeper, Theophilus Afelokhai had no answer. Shortly after this the Ghanaians missed two close chances that would have given them a resounding first half lead. But they needed not worry for Richard Frimpong was, in the 71st minute, to score a goal that they needed to cancel out Nigeria’s 3-1 first leg win in Benin. After the Benin match the Ghanaians repeatedly dubbed the Nigerian team not good and said that they would emerge triumphant in Kumasi. Their game yesterday proved that they were not just boasting. They knew what they could do and they did it superbly. Ghana reached the quarterfinals of the 2010 World Cup after their Under 20 team won the FIFA Under 20 World Cup. Nigeria fell out in the second round of that tournament and crashed out in a shameful way in the first round in South Africa 2010 World Cup. Now, they have clipped two Nigerian teams from any further progress to Maputo.
