'Let's forget about the 2026 World Cup'—Nigerian football fans do not believe this Super Eagles team will win the AFCON or qualify for the World Cup after struggling against Lesotho.
The Super Eagles dominated the first half but it was Lesotho who took the lead against the run of play in the second half through Motlomelo Mkhwanazi.
Although Semi Ajayi put the Super Eagles level with a brilliant header minutes later, Jose Peseiro’s men could not find the winner.
Following the match, the Super Eagles and the coaching crew came in for criticism from many Nigerians, including Oliseh.
