It was an Africa Cup of Nations qualification game to forget for Nigeria's Kelechi Iheanacho.
Buhle Mkhwanazi's own goal had put Gernot Rohr's men in front after a sublime finish but a resurgent display from South Africa saw them equalise thanks to Lebo Mothiba.
And Iheanacho was at the heart of a calamitous outing for the three-time African kings, as his numerous misses cost his side victory at the FNB Stadium.

If it was an Npfl player that had a poor first touch like Iheanacho, some of you will write an epistle on why Npfl players are useless and have poor technique.— Olaleye Dada (@olaleyedada) November 17, 2018
I Dey here dey observe
Kelechi Iheanacho has moved from a promising young footballer to a poor footballer. Completely off form and struggling at the minute.— Ediye (@iamOkon) November 17, 2018

RT GodspowerSpeaks: Only God knows if Kelechi Iheanacho woke up in Morata's body or Lukaku's. This is definitely a freaky Saturday for Nigerians.— Erin Douglass (@ErinDouglass5) November 17, 2018
