It was a bitter night coupled with emotional breakdown after the Super Eagles lost to Argentina 2-1 in an intense match last night.
The beautiful tough game which was tied at 1-1, would have been a beautiful moment of victory for Nigerians when Marcos Rojo handballed the ball in his own penalty area in the second half of the clash. The match official used VAR, but decided against awarding the spot-kick, much to the dismay of Nigerians and to football supporters all around the world.
Super Eagles might have had a possible win if they were awarded the penalty. Nigerians felt they were robbed by the Turkish referee, Cuneyt Cakir.
Nigerians worldwide however felt cheated and they stormed social media to express their anger and lucky enough, they were able to fish out the Instagram account of Cakir where they have since been dropping several insulting and derogatory comments.
The Turkish referee’s Instagram page has since garnered over 20,000 comments from angry Nigerians. Some even went as far as wishing death upon him and raining curses on his children.
