The senior national team of Nigeria suffered a shocking 0-1 defeat to Guinea Bissau at the Moshood Abiola stadium in the race to be at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
With Nigeria looking more likely to score with Victor Osimhen, Ademola Lookman, Samuel Chukwueze and Kelechi Iheanacho making darting runs, it was the visitors who surprisingly took the lead in the 29 minutes. Totally against the run of play.
A route one ball behind the defence of Nigeria caught the centre backs flat leaving Samba Balde to run at the ball unchallenged.
Nigeria immediately mounted a fight back but tried as they could, they failed to trouble Jonas Mendez in the goal of Guinea Bissau and ended the half losing 0-1 leaving the stadium in a tense situation. They were booed off the pitch.
Guinea Bissau showed remarkable organization in defence to see out the win and in the process go top of the group and also inflicted a fifth straight defeat on the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
The first time in history it is happening.
