Concise News reports that Paul Aigbogun’s boys succumbed two-nil to the Americans in a Group D encounter and must avoid another defeat against table-toppers, Ukraine in their last group match if they hope to proceed to the next round.
A chunk of Nigerians are clearly unhappy with not the result per se, but the shoddy display of the team. See the reactions of social media:
Buhari’s flying eagles! Dead, inept, lackluster, unintelligent, moronic and zombified! #FlyingHerdsmen

After watching Flying Eagles last night, here is my verdict: Physicality 100%, Tactical&Technical ability 10%, Teamwork and coordination 10%. Worst U20 team since Ladan Bosso’s 2007 squad!

I missed the Flying Eagles’ opening win against Qatar and decided to watch tonight’s game. My verdict after 30 mins: Physicality 100%, Tactical&Technical ability 10%, Teamwork and coordination 10%. Worst U20 team since Ladan Bosso’s 2007 squad!

USA thoroughly played the Flying Eagles.
They played with purpose – we played aimlessly,
They started with a plan – we started lost already,
They passed well – we are just scattered all around the pitch.
The Flying Eagles played “try & error” football. #PoojaFootball

Honestly watching the worst flying eagles team of all time.
Went with old players that could not still play football#Shame

Flying Eagles looking un-coached. We just pretty assembled some 11 guys and left them to their discretion.
