- Reacting to the AFCON final loss, a disappointed fan made an open appeal to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF)
- He named four Nigerian players that should not be called up to the Super Eagles team for future matches
A Nigerian man has singled out Alex Iwobi, Zaidu Sanusi, Joe Aribo, and Samuel Chukwueze for their alleged abysmal showing against Cote d'Ivoire in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) final.
The mechanical engineer, via X, appealed to the NFF never to allow them to play for the Super Eagles again.
In a sarcastic manner, @oku_yungx enumerated their names twice and referred to them as Lekki slay queens.
He warned that the NFF would have some explaining to do if those names get called up for the next AFCON tournament.

@oku_yungx advised NFF to go local
Speaking further, @oku_yungx advised the NFF to look towards the local league when scouting for players to represent the nation as the 'old heads need to rest.'
"...We have hungry heads ready to play their lives for the country wasting in our LOCAL LEAGUE. Send scouts to do their job.
"Jettison the old heads. They need to rest. You know them," he wrote.
He added that the Super Eagles need attacking midfielders, wingers and dare-devil strikers like Osimhen. He also appealed to NFF to get a local church and not interfere in his selection.
