Nigeria's Flying Eagles have crashed out of this year's FIFA World Cup staging in Poland at the round of 16 stage.

Coach Paul Aigbogun's men suffered a 2-1 defeat to fellow African side, Senegal at the Stadion Widzewa Lodz on Monday night.

A goal each from Amadou Sagna and Ibrahima Niame rendered Success Makanjuola's 50th minute strike a mere consolation at the end of the meeting.

It would be recalled that the Nigerian contingent reached the knockout stage as one of the best losing teams at the group stages.

However, their failure to improve their performances before this evening's game saw them crash out of the competition at the early stage.

Aigbogun's men kicked off their campaign with an exciting 4-0 win over Qatar, but were floored by the United States U20 team in their second game.
