Rufai Oseni, an Arise TV host, has slammed the Super Eagles after their AFCON 2023 final defeat to Ivory Coast on Sunday.
Oseni, in a statement following the game, expressed that Jose Peseiro's players put up a 'woeful' performance against the hosts, with only one shot on goal.
He said, “Don’t politicize this loss, it’s not about politics, the team was woeful. We had just one shot on goal! We were terrible today.
“So upset I really hoped the boys would win it for those that died during the semifinals. That makes me sad. So let’s go back to our problems, food is expensive ooo.”
