The Nigeria Amputee Football Team who battled through several odds to make an appearance at the World Cup have started their campaign on a losing note.

The Special Eagles as the Nigerian team are fondly referred to were schooled by the Amputee team from Brazil that hammered them 6-0 late Sunday night.

The defeat for Nigeria would not be surprising especially after the tortuous journey which took over 55 hours for most of the players who actually traveled in batches and the last set arriving on match day.

While Angola won their own opening game, Ghana, the other African country present in Mexico were also beaten in their own opening group.
