After their hard-fought Uganda in the quarter-finals, Nigerian coach Ladan Bosso made just one change to the starting lineup, right full-back Augustine Njoku was dropped for returning captain of the team, Daniel Bamaiyi who was suspended for their previous game.

With just seven minutes into the game, Adama Bojang scored to put his team in front, as the 18-year-old registered his third goal of the campaign. The Flying Eagles however fought back with plenty of chances to score, but the team lack finishing and composure in their attacking lines. Nigeria was however presented with a golden opportunity to level the game in the 86th minute when they were awarded a penalty, but Abdullahi Ahmed failed to convert the spot kick and the game ended 1-0 in favor of Gambia.

After the disappointing 1-0 loss to Gambia on Monday, many Nigerians took to social media to share their view on the performance of the team.
