Super Eagles’ second-choice goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa has come under attack after a video of him appeared online asking Barcelona star, Lionel Messi to give him his shirt after Nigeria’s 2-1 defeat to Argentina in the 2018 World Cup on Tuesday night.
Messi had opened scoring in the game, before Victor Moses equalized in the second half from the spot.
Marcos Rojo fired home a late winner with six minutes left.
The Enyimba International of Aba shot-stopper, who has won 24 caps for Nigeria but did not feature at all in Russia, with Francis Uzoho manning the posts for the three games was caught on camera collecting Messi’s shirt.
However, Nigerians have condemned Ezenwa’s action, while others were of the opinion that Messi was his role model.
