AFCON Loss: Comedian, Okey Bakassi Shades Super Eagles Goalkeeper. Last night was a painful one for Nigerians after the Super eagles team crashed out of the 2019 African Cup of Nations.
Reacting to the 2-1 loss to Algeria, Nigerian stand-up comedian and actor, Okey Bakassi blamed Eagles’ goalkeeper, Daniel Akpeyi after for the loss.
The Super Eagles fought back from a goal deficit in the second half to hold Djamel Belmadi’s men to a 1-1 draw until injury time. After four additional minutes in stoppage time, Riyad Mahrez rose to the occasion and scored a free-kick in the last minute of the game.
However reacting to Super Eagles’ loss, Okey Bakassi congratulated every other person on the team for their hard work except the goalkeeper.
He jokingly launched a campaign for a goalkeeper to be picked from Cotonou in the next edition of the football competition.
See his video came with the caption; @ng_supereagles minus goalkeeper you guys tried and we appreciate you. #afcon2019 #algnga
