We’re Not Happy – Super Eagles Vow Comeback After Disappointing Qualifiers

Share

The Super Eagles have returned home following a challenging series of World Cup qualifying matches, expressing their dissatisfaction with their recent performances.

In a post on X.com, the team acknowledged the difficulties they faced and committed to a relentless pursuit of World Cup qualification.

The statement says, “We are back in the country and we are not happy about the way the two games panned out.

“We have had talks among ourselves and have resolved to fight hard till the end to ensure we do the impossible which is qualifying for the 2026 World Cup.

“We don’t take your support for granted, we thank you immensely. #SoarSuperEagles.”

Nigeria’s 1-2 loss on Monday to the Benin Republic, a team considered less formidable, has been a significant setback for the Super Eagles and their supporters.

This defeat, along with a preceding 1-1 draw against South Africa’s Bafana Bafana, has thrown the team’s qualification hopes into jeopardy and sparked concerns about the team’s current trajectory under coach George Finidi.

The Super Eagles now find themselves in fifth place in Group C after four matches, making the path to the 2026 World Cup in the USA, Canada, and Mexico increasingly challenging.

The looming danger of missing out on another World Cup, having already failed to qualify for the 2022 edition in Qatar, adds to the pressure on the team and its management.
