Russia 2018: Nigerians 'Roast' Ighalo Over Eagles' Ouster
"It’s a sad day for me, the boys and the country because we went out in a bad manner and we deserved more in the game. We had a penalty in the game and another one which the referee did not give.
"I missed a couple of chances that would have finished the game but that’s football because sometimes you win and sometimes to lose."
Super Eagles's Odion Ighalo said this while reacting to the begging chances he missed that could have secured a win for the Nigerian team against Argentina.
But Nigerians are not having it. They have taken to social media to 'roast' the striker.

Gernot Rohr's No.9 Ighalo has scored only 4 goals for d Super Eagles in 3 yrs. The German also had Simeon Nwankwo in his squad but he didn't think Lokosa is good enough cos he plays in the Npfl abi?— Olaleye Dada (@olaleyedada) June 27, 2018
He also had Joel Obi&Onazi in that team&u people say i shouldn't criticise him?
I can’t even watch Love Island without Ighalo’s stupid face flashing in my head— Jason Bourne???? (@_Cxllins) June 26, 2018

I really don't think we were robbed. That ball was clear ball to hand, no intention. It'd be embarrassing for any world class ref to call that a penalty.— Baamofin Lu'Jesha (@O_Nife) June 26, 2018
That being said, let's ask Ighalo about his meeting with Yakubu and how they conspired to roll back the years on us.
