Controversial Twitter personality Daniel Regha has taken to social media to express his opinions on Nigeria’s Super Eagles’ performance in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) final against Ivory Coast.
The match, held on Sunday, February 11, saw the Super Eagles unexpectedly defeated 2-1 by their Ivorian counterparts.
Daniel Regha expressed his disappointment with Nigeria’s display on the field.
One of the major points of contention for him was the perceived lack of a midfield presence in the Super Eagles’ lineup.
According to Daniel Regha, the Ivory Coast team managed to exert control over the game, leaving Nigeria seemingly unable to assert themselves in the crucial midfield battle.
The controversial personality went on to critique the tactical approach of the Super Eagles’ coach.
He claimed that the coach lacked tactical flexibility, suggesting that this deficiency contributed to the team’s subpar performance on the field.
Additionally, Daniel Regha expressed his dissatisfaction with the players’ lack of focus during the crucial match.
In 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.”
@Yankee suggested: “Nigerians let’s all visit the referee social media page and pray for him”
@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.”
