Sports: Nigeria Loses 2:1 to Coratia

A very lethargic looking Nigerian side lost to Croatia by 2 goals to 1. Though this result makes no difference to Nigeria’s standing at the top of group A, their performance in this third game leaves a lot to be desired.

the Nigerian Golden Eaglets were hardly recognizable as the Croatian team made them look very ordinary. The Croatians started the game very much in control. The Nigerian team however went ahead to take the lead in the 20th minute through a coolly crafted move by Osimhen who beat the keeper before calmly slotting the ball into the net.

The Croatians came into the second half and continued their ball possesion and control which resulted in their first goal in the 50th minute. Shortly after this, they capitalized on a defensive error to net their second goal.

From this point on, the Nigerian team were made to look like babies. The Nigerian team tried to wake up towards the end of the match but could not get a another goal.

With this result, Croatia and Nigeria move on from group A with Nigeria topping the group. Hosts Chile may also move on as one of the best losers as they beat USA 4 goals to 1 to gather 4 points.

As Nigeria gets ready for her next match on october 28, it is hoped that any kinks would have been ironed out.Nigeria will be playing the best loser from groups C,D or E.
