Coach Jorge Sampaoli was under massive attack from fans after Argentina lost 4-2 to Nigeria in an international friendly on Tuesday.
Alex Iwobi bagged a brace while Kelechi Iheanacho and debutant Brian Idowu scored a goal each as Gernot Rohr’s men brilliantly fought from two goals down to put Argentina to the sword.
Argentina fans took to social media to blast the coach, saying he does not have what it takes to handle the two-time world champions.
“Sampaoli has less football idea than my old one,” Valeentin Moran wrote on Twitter.
“Sampaoli does not have to direct the national team anymore,” Pablo Almeiraa wrote.
However, Sampaoli insists his side did their best and will overcome in due time.
“The team has the ability and individuals to overcome these incidents, but we have to improve,” He told LA NACION.
“As for the positive ones, there is one game, the mastery of some situations that without being executed were very close to the idea that we propose in training.”
