Watford Commiserate With Troost-Ekong, Okoye Over Eagles’ AFCON Exit

Premier League club Watford have commiserated with their Nigerian stars William Troost-Ekong and Maduka Okoye, following Super Eagles elimination at this year’s AFCON.

Troost-Ekong and Okoye were in action but could not prevent the Eagles from losing 1-0 to Tunisia in the round of 16 on Sunday.


After a tight first half, Tunisia broke the deadlock early in the second half after Okoye was beaten by a Youssef Msakni’s long range shot.

Both players will hope to put the disappointment behind them when the Eagles face Ghana in the 2022 World Cup qualifiers in March.

    Maduka okoye is not ripe yet to be the number one for the eagles,how on Earth do you use one hand to make that type of save,when a long range shot is fired low,u need to hands to push the ball away unless the ball is coming up,then u can tip over the post,if it’s a curling shot,u may use one hand but this is a direct shot and he has a good view ,how ekong and omeruo or even ndidi allowed that guy take the shit still baffles me, knowing that our keeper is basket which I have always complained on this forum.im glad he has played himself out of our post going forward.he distracted himself with our loose girls that were praising him on social media,he wasn’t able to concentrate on the job, without knowing that Nigerians will come for him,he did same thing against searra Leone ,cape verde home and away, conceding cheap goals,I knew immediately that this guy isn’t ready yet

    • So he should have use 10 hands. The problem with you guy is blame game. We warn you but you wouldn’t listen. When you were hailing the team we said it that just a small blip you had start calling for players and coaches head better learn from this defeat.

    We no fit shout for Maduka okoye matter again o… Make una direct annoyance go give the coach wey discover am for us come promote go first choice and guys for this forum for wey the guy na the best thing wey happen to Nigeria after slice bread…

    I still recall all the videos of Enyeama poor saves for chief Dr. Drey upload here just to insult Enyeama as having started worse than Okoye in Super Eagles career… Imagine insulting Vincent Enyeama because of just a fine oyibo boy wey no fit catch grasshopper… Have you seen Dr.Drey say anything bad about Okoye’s howler? Or Ahmed Musa that has become motivation speaker to the team because he can’t kick ball again?

    Ranieri’s sacking was all I wish for according to my post concerning Dennis matter and this has come to pass now. So Watford can now rise again with the help of our stars
