The Super Eagles of Nigeria suffered a 0-1 loss to the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia on Sunday, January 23, 2022, and are out of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Cameroon.

The only goal of the game came in the 47th minute through Youssef Msakni.

Nigerians took to Twitter after the game to express their disappointment with goalkeeper Maduka Okoye.

According to most of the opinions, Okoye should have prevented the ball from going in.

The general agreement was that the goalkeeper was at fault and should have done better.

Okoye has received a lot of praises from Nigerian ladies on social media for his looks at the AFCON.

The Sparta Rotterdam man was mocked by some Nigerian football fans for focusing on his appearance rather than sharpening his skills as a goalkeeper.

Here are some reactions to Okoye's error against Tunisia below.

Okoye became the first-choice keeper under former coach Gernot Rohr.

The 23-year-old retained his position under Augustine Eguavoen after the German tactician departed.

With the crucial 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the Black Stars of Ghana Okoye will need to prove himself once again to new manager José Peseiro.
