Soccer fans in Nigeria on Wednesday reacted to the Three Lions of England’s inability to reach the final of the 2018 Fifa World Cup after Croatia’s Mario Mandzukic grabbed an extra-time goal to end England’s dream of winning the World Cup.

The Three Lions took the lead via a Kieran Trippier free-kick in the 5th minute of the game but Ivan Perisic leveled for the 1998 third-placed finishers.
