It was a distressing moment in Nigeria as they played against Argentina. Full of hope and leaving their fate in the hands of the Super Eagles, the cat and pig, Nigerians were fearless before the match boasting to their rivals of a flawless victory. A draw was all they needed and the Super Eagles would hopefully soar to victory.
But that was not going to happen.
Leaving the giant of Africa to clean their already healing wound, Nigeria were treated to a 2-1 show of disappointment as the G.O.A.T-led team humbled the Eagles on the pitch.
See reactions of Nigerians and place your hands on your chest while at it:
