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
