Following the Super Eagles’ disheartening 1-1 stalemate against Zimbabwe—their second straight draw in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign—Nigerians took to social media to voice their displeasure.
Nigeria’s blushes were spared at Butare when Kelechi Iheanacho of Leicester City tied the score with a beautiful curler from inside the box.
Nevertheless, despite their best efforts, the Jose Peseiro-led team was unable to secure a victory, as the Zimbabweans made sure the Eagles would never taste triumph.
The Super Eagles have only collected two of a potential six points in their qualifying campaign for the 2026 World Cup, meaning they are still without a victory following the draw.
This result adds to the disappointment of Nigerians on social media, and many are calling 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.“
