A 2-0 loss to Madagascar in Sunday's Africa Cup of Nations outing has left Nigerians fuming on social media.
A first-half effort from Lalaina Nomenjanahary and a Carolus Andriamatsinoro deflected free-kick in the 53rd minute was enough for the Barea to grab a famous win against the three-time African champions.
Although the Super Eagles qualified for the Round of 16 as Group B runners-up behind Nicolas Dupuis’ men, football enthusiasts across the country are far from happy after the embarrassing loss.

We have only managed to get the results against Burundi and Guinea without really playing well. We were always going to hit a brick wall against a well organized and clinical side like Madagascar, who are fast becoming a powerhouse in African football. #TotalAFCON2019 #NGAMAD— Godwin Odiko ⚽™ (@GodwinOdiko) June 30, 2019

Kill the eagle
The rest is Nigeria
The Super eagles 🦅 didn't play like a serious team in any of their group games. No surprise at all that they lost to a determined Madagascar team.— Uzokae | Eddie (@EnduringPersin) June 30, 2019
Credit to Madagascar, they were handed a gift, they took it. The Super Eagles will do better in their next game. We move! #AFCON2019— JJ. Omojuwa (@Omojuwa) June 30, 2019
