'You are the best' - Many Nigerian ladies stand by Okoye as GK breaks his silence
Maduka Okoye has taken to social media to break his silence following the Super Eagles' elimination from the ongoing Africa Cup of Nations after a shock 1-0 loss to Tunisia on Sunday.

The Watford loanee and Everton winger Alex Iwobi have both been scapegoated by the fans and media for the defeat to the north Africans.

Although his defensive-minded teammates let him down in the build up to the goal, including Ola Aina, Joe Aribo and Wilfred Ndidi, the Super Eagles number 1 should have done better stopping a shot from Youssef Msakni in the 47th minute, but he went a bit early to his right side and it was difficult for him to adjust and make a save.

The Sparta Rotterdam glovesman was emotionally devastated after his blunder cost one of the tournament favourites Nigeria a spot in the quarterfinals and had to be attended to by Super Eagles medics.

Two days after Nigeria exited AFCON 2021, Okoye braved the criticism and posted on Twitter : "Glory to you Jehova(h)".

While many male Super Eagles fans are refusing to let bygones by bygones, a large number of Nigerian ladies have stood by Okoye and also expressed their love for him.

Here's how they responded to Okoye's post :
