Nigerians have expressed their discontent on social media following the Super Eagles‘ disappointing 1-1 draw against Zimbabwe, marking their second consecutive draw in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.
Leicester City’s Kelechi Iheanacho saved Nigeria’s blushes in Butare after he drew level with a fine curler from inside the box.
The Jose Peseiro-led side, however, could not get a winner despite all efforts as the Zimbabweans ensured that there was no taste of victory for the Eagles.
The draw meant the Super Eagles are still without a win in their qualifying campaign for the 2026 World Cup, as they have picked up only two points from a possible six.
For Nigerians on social media, this outcome adds to the disappointment, and many are advocating for the dismissal of Peseiro.

My 2 cents!
Terrible situation our football administrators got us in’
@preciousekeke: “If pesiero survives a sack letter after this dismal outing, then the NFF should tell us what he has against them.”
@isibor266: “The entire team and coaching crew should be disbanded. This is a shame and a waste of scarce resources.”
@yoboydonchichi: “You can never do anything again. Please drop this slogan after another disgraceful result against Zimbabwe. With a failure like Jose Peseiro as a coach, Nigeria can never achieve anything in football.”
@gagnatbiz: “We are not doing it again o.. We want a better performance with a win at the end. Not all this draw and “let’s do it again”.
@Mvolgap: xUseless: “NFF, do you shameful people need people to tell you to sack this coach and this goalkeeper? Not every player needs to be invited into the national team, just like the late Steven Kishe said.“
