Fans took to social media to blast Nigeria's profligacy in front of goal after Guinea dumped them out of the 2019 Africa U17 Cup of Nations with a 10-9 penalty shoot-out win.
After the match at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam finished goalless a penalty shoot-out followed, where both teams were successful with each of their first nine kicks.
After Guinea converted their 10th, Ogaga Oduko blasted his effort onto the goal post to end Nigeria's challenge for a third continental title.
Despite the team's decent outing in Tanzania, some football enthusiasts believe the inability to convert chances cost Garba's boys their place in the final.
Golden Eaglets did their best, but paid dearly for their wastefulness in front of goals.— Dennis O. Adesanoye (@stdennis02) April 24, 2019
However, I believe they can still go on and win World Cup in Brazil. After all, we couldn't conquer Africa in 2013 & 2015, but later ruled the world on both occasions.#NGAGUI #TotalAFCONU17
The Prayer warrior among the Eaglets missed the spot that denies Nigeria a final spot in the #TotalAFCONU17 . We deh always form prayer mechanics for a situation that warrant effort.— George Sam (@Gasam101) April 24, 2019
