The man burning the Super Eagles' jersey
A Nigerian football fan has set his Super Eagles' jersey on fire.
The disappointed fan took to social media to show off the unfortunate act as a result of Super Eagles' last Saturday's poor performance against Croatia in their opening game at the FIFA World Cup taking place in Russia.
Many Nigerians, including Media personality, Emmanuel Ugolee have condemned the act calling it an unpatriotic behaviour. Ugolee reacted on his Instagram thus:
"Without giving an excuse for a dissappointing outing, the public bashing on the eagles is even more dissappointing.
Nigeria lost her 1st match. So what? Even with that loss, is she not better of than heavy weights Holland & Italy who are but mere spectators to the tournament? Should Ghanians and South Africans hang their players for keeping them away from all the fun?
Germany, 4 time winners, also lost their opening match. Did any Argentine or Brazilian expect a draw? Like life, the game is full of disappointments and embarrassing moments.
No man alive is immune to such times. The reaction of those around you when it is your turn to temporarily be down should be very closely observed because nothing better reveals who deserves or is undeserving of your company after the storm.
With the slightest fall there are those [like the culprit responsible for this video] who would very immediately distance themselves from you and at the next opportunity tarnish your image with a verbal deliberation on your weaknesses both real and imagined. Spreading doom with no sense of hope.
When you find people like this near you. My brother please run. They are like a wicked mum who beats her child for loosing a school race. How do you go from wearing a jersey proudly on the 16th to burning it on the 17th? Clear fake love. Same goes for any who has been using hate speech on the boys."
