Super Eagles Booed In Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport
The Super Eagles got an unwanted reception by aggrieved fans at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, yesterday on arrival from Sudan. The angry fans booed the team as security officials had a hectic time controlling them.
Sudan dealt Nigeria a serious major blow to qualify for next year’s AFCON in Morocco after they stunned the African champions 1-0 in Khartoum on Saturday.
Nigeria will now need to win their remaining three matches at home against Sudan and South Africa and away in Congo to have any mathematical chance of advancing to the 2015 AFCON.
Bakeber Bakri scored the match winner in the 42nd minute to hand Sudan the three needed points.
The Super Eagles touched down at the Nnamdi Azikiwi International Airport around 9am local time (10am CAT) on Sunday to meet angry fans and workers who booed them.
It took the intervention of armed security men before the Super Eagles were allowed to board a bus from the airport.
Nigeria now sit at the base of Group A in the 2015 Afcon qualification on one point. Sudan are
in third spot while South Africa are the new leaders on seven points followed by Congo on six points.
