Nigeria vs Algeria Nigerians criticize Peseiro’s team, saying “He cost us the World Cup”. A cross-section of Nigerians have resorted to Twitter to share their varied emotions as the Super Eagles of Nigeria get ready to play the national team of Algeria in an international friendly match on Tuesday at the Miloud Hadefi Olympic Complex. The remarks follow Jose Peseiro’s squad’s struggles against Algeria’s home team (team B) in a friendly match on Friday night at the Mohamed Hamlaoui Stadium, Constantine, according to DAILY POST.
Karim Aribi took advantage of Maduka Okoye’s error to give Algeria the lead after 33 minutes as the Super Eagles and Algeria squad B battled to a 2-2 draw.
After the half, the three-time African champions came back, scoring goals through replacements Alex Iwobi and Cyriel Dessers.
Despite the absence of players like Wilfred Ndidi, Ahmed Musa, Leon Balogun, Henry Onyekuru, Emmanuel Dennis, and Samuel Chukwueze due to injuries, Algeria’s Aymen Mahious scored from the penalty spot in the second half to guarantee a draw.
However, several Nigerians questioned Super Eagles coach Jose Peseiro’s decision to invite Okoye for the friendly match against the Desert Warriors before to Tuesday night’s friendly match between Nigeria and Algeria. Numerous sports fans asserted that Nigeria’s ticket to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar was lost due to the goalkeeper’s fault in the goal post.

@moolah79, Is there ever a game where this Maduka man makes a mistake that costs us goals? HABA! How does he even continue receiving invitations?
@efe okedi, “I’m curious as to how the game would turn out if you could only tie with the Algerian B squad.”
@MichaelOsas29, You must stop doing it, Maduka Okoye. That man is not a trained keeper.
@NoahHum94994416, “If Nigerian football is to succeed, it should always start with inexperienced players who have received better training. If people would listen, there is the solution: Who hasn’t made much yet. Nigerian players will never again be the same because of the country’s growing love of money. Once they notice a small difference in their money accounts, these gamers cease using their skills. Because of this, the majority of them in Europe play for mediocre teams or on the bench. This is known to the foreign coaches. Then locate some players who were not born in Nigeria who would concur and add to it.
@Wadada7Jah, “You shouldn’t anticipate the Super Eagles to play that ferociously because if they did, many players may have had injuries since they didn’t take it seriously. Go

@Mr Yummiest, We have been attempting to explain to certain individuals since the afternoon that this is simply a practice game, but some take it so seriously that they even criticize the team show and claim that many people are eager to complain on Twitter without saying anything.
@oluwashina, “Amaju Pinnick has converted Algeria’s B team into jokers, the Super Eagles? The Lord is good.
@Emmajosiah44, “You believe that bread and beans are football. Have you ever considered that if the Algerian B team can hold the Super Eagles A squad at bay, it implies that they possess a strong domestic league capable of defeating any A team on the African continent?
@Rfbolajitwitts, “All of you making comments here, Algeria wasn’t pushed to a draw by Nigeria. The Algerians were the ones to force a draw by tying the score in penalties. Observe the highlight. Algeria’s two goals might have been prevented! the keeper’s blunder and the shove on the penalty.
The Algeria vs. Nigeria game is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m.
