The Nigerian social media space hasn’t been the same since the Super Eagles of Nigeria defeated the Pharaohs of Egypt 1-0 in their group stage yesterday, January 11, 2021.
The football teams had clashed at the ongoing 33rd Africa Cup of Nations on Tuesday in Garoua, Cameroon.
The Eagles made history with the win since it broke Egypt’s unbeaten (in group stage) record.
Nigerians have celebrated the victory on social media hailing the boys and specifically, the Interim Manager, Augustine Eguavoen.
Reca that The News Beam had earlier reported that Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) had relieved Gernot Rohr of his duties has Super Eagles Coach and replaced him with Augustine Eguavoen but as interim manager.
Last December, the Nigeria Football Federation again announced its decision to settle for 61-year-old Portuguese manager Jose Peseiro as the new head coach for the Super Eagles.
Social media users have questioned this decision after the recent win, showing preference for Eguavoen.
