The Super Eagles of Nigeria crashed out of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon after losing 1-0 to Tunisia in their Sunday encounter in the round of 16.
Tunisia took Nigerian Eagles by surprise by scoring two minutes into the second half.
It was a long-range shot from Youssef Msakni that gave the Carthage Eagles their first goal in the game.
Things got worse for Nigeria after Alex Iwobi was shown a red card for a bad tackle barely two minutes after he was brought into the game.
The Super Eagles never recovered from these misfortunes as the match ended 1-0, meaning Nigeria crash out of the competition.
Meanwhile Nigerians are blaming President Muhammadu Buhari for the Eagles’ misfortune against Tunisia. Buhari had called the team a day before the match to give them motivation, but Nigerians feel he gave that bad luck rather.
See some reactions from some Nigerians on Twitter:
Anthony Joshua was minding his business. Eguavoen & the Super Eagles were doing a good job. Until Buhari decided to show his face.
Everything Buhari touches…..🌚🥶

Super Eagles used to win or score in the first half until they received a call from President Buhari.

It’s also imperative to note that the Super Eagles are losing for the first time in this tournament after President Buhari spoke to them via Video Call…
I prefer not to speak👍

I really don't know who comes up with this Buhari calling the team to wish them good luck though.
This isn't the first time this is happening.
Buhari is a bad omen. #Nigeriavstunisia #NGATUN #AFCON2021
