The Super Eagles of Nigeria have been rated as 29th out of 32 teams at the ongoing world cup in Russia after the first round of games.
This simply means they are the 3rd worst team following their 2-0 defeat against Croatia at the opening fixture.
According to the British newspaper, Daily Telegraph, in an appraisal of the 32 teams, Nigeria is only better than Saudi Arabia who lost to Russia by 5-0 and Panama who lost to Belgium 3-0.
Here’s what the assessment reads:
A horrible performance from a group of players who didn’t seem to grasp quite how important their opening game at the World Cup was.
“Whether the manager’s fault or those in green shirts, there was no urgency, no great surge to try and rescue a point, an isolated striker and full-backs who weren’t allowed to get forward.
“Nigeria should be so much better than this,”
However, Spain and Portugal who played 3-3 draw were place at first and second whil Mexico who beat the reigning champions, Germany were place at the third position.
