Well fellow Nigerians, it’s been a good run, but unfortunately the super eagles wont be making history by making it to the quarter finals for the first time ever. They lost to France 2-0 after conceding 2 late goals from Paul Pogba & an own goal from Joseph Yobo.

The game looked destined to hit extra time until Paul Pogba headed home the ball after a failed punch out by Vincent Enyema in the 79th minute.
France added a second in injury time as Joseph Yobo deflected a Valbuena cross into his own net.
That’s it for us. Till another 4 years. We will ask the question:
