… Says officiating was very poor

Super Eagles interim coach Austin Eguavoen has criticised the performance of Senegalese referee Maguette Ndiaye following Nigeria’s round of 16 exit at the 2021 AFCON.

The Super Eagles promising campaign in the competition came to a disappointing end following a 1-0 loss to Tunisia on Sunday night.

Youssef Msakni’s strike from outside the box was all the Carthage Eagles needed to progress to the quarterfinal at the expense of Nigeria.

Msakni’s goal was not the only talking point of the game, though, as Nigeria also had Alex Iwobi sent off five minutes after coming on.

Initially, Ndiaye awarded the Everton man a yellow card but changed his decision following a VAR review. And speaking after the game, Eguavoen criticised the controversial Senegalese referee, saying some of his calls were wrong.
