Nigeria Loses 2 - 0 to France And Thus Ends Our World Cup Journey

Posted in: , ,

Captain, Joseph Yobo, scored an own goal during today's World Cup round of 16 soccer match between France and Nigeria. But his mistake at the final minute was just the nail in the coffin.

The Super Eagles had a goal ruled out for offside in the first half after Emmanuel Emenike scored the first goal of the match with a cross from Ahmed Musa. That first half belonged to Nigeria as France started slowly.

However, France finished strongly in the second half with their striker Paul Pogba scoring a late header from a corner kick that broke Nigeria's defence.

Goalkeeper, Vincent Enyeama, was finally destabilized with less than 15 minutes to go to the end of the match. We could not equalize and then Yobo got flustured and nudged in his own goal that made it 2 - 0.

The guys all tried their best. Vincent Enyeama is the man of the match, once again.
