In a sad turn of events, on Sunday, February 11, the Super Eagles of Nigeria were unexpectedly defeated 2-1 by Ivory Coast in the African Cup of Nations final.
Daniel Regha responded by criticizing the Super Eagles’ performance and restating his belief that they lacked a midfield.
According to him, Ivory Coast dominated and outplayed Nigeria and the coach lacked tactical flexibility. He also faulted the officiating referees for doing an awful job.
His words: “Ivory Coast dominated the AFCON final & outplayed Nigeria, it’s almost like the Super Eagles had no midfield (which I’ve stated repeatedly but was called names). Nigeria’s performance was kinda disappointing, the coach was not tactically flexible, while the players didn’t have focus. That said, the officiating referees did an awful job.”

Popey noted: “Daniel you just packed all the generational curses from your lineage. Today you supported Nigeria I knew there would be a problem. Fake Nigerian, outcast from Ghana hiding in Nigeria.”
Nasr said: “This post is 10/10. You’re 💯 correct Daniel. You can’t play from defender to strikers and win in final. Atletico Madrid are the football club that plays like that and they’ve lost all the finals in the last 7 years.”
