A lot of Nigerians are still pained by the country’s early exit from the Russia 2018 World Cup after the Super Eagles lost to the Argentine team on Tuesday.
To make matters worse, wives of Super Eagles players – Kenneth Omeruo and Odion Ighalo – jumped into the fray and are currently being roasted on Social media.
It started with Nigerians going after Ighalo, who lost vital chances to score a goal that would have been enough to keep the Eagles in Russia. Ighalo locked his comment section to keep the verbal attacks away. And the battle was shifted to the Instagram page of his wife, Sonia.
She posted an image assuring her husband that she was with him inspite of the criticisms, but Nigerians slammed her. And not exercising any restraint, the mother of three, fired back with her Instagram handle, @sjighalo24.
Below are screenshots of the hot exchanges curated by Instablog9ja:
While some Nigerians frowned at those who attacked Sonia because of her husband’s mistakes, They went all out for Kenneth Omeruo’s wife, Chioma, who called former Super Eagles skipper, Austin Jay Jay Okocha, a mad dog.
Chioma lashed out at Okocha over his criticims of her husband’s performance against Argentina at the World Cup.
Okocha who was an analyst on Suoer Sports had blamed Omeruo for Lionel Messi’s goal which gave Argentina the first lead in the match.
He said: “I was a bit disappointed in Omeruo. He should have seen the run of Messi and may be take a step or two to stop the ball”
But unhappy that Okocha called her husband’s name, Chioma, who got married to Kenneth last month, slammed the Nigerian legend on Instagram with her handle, @oma_maranma.
