The home-based Super Eagles have crashed out of the ongoing 4th African Nations Championship hosted by Rwanda.

They lost with a lone goal to the better Guinean side who came into the game with all their zeal and held on till the final whistle.

Victory by any margin or at worst a draw would have guaranteed the Eagles a quarter –final date with the second–placed team in Group D, a feat they failed to grab.

It was the Tunisian side that eventually finished tops after devouring Niger Republic with a 4-0 wide margin.

Guinea ended second in the group with five point and one goal aggregate behind Tunisia’s plus 4 goal aggregates.

Coach Sunday Oliseh had been very skeptical of the team when he said that the team will be playing on “half tank” but refused to expatiate on the real meaning behind his words.

Nigeria forward Chisom Chikatara, on four goals, who was hoped to pose the biggest threat to the Guineans, failed to rescue the drowning Eagles.

Super Eagles’ Head Coach, Sunday Oliseh, was in the Nigerian squad that earned a 1998 FIFA World Cup ticket at the expense of Syli Nationale. 

But the Guineans also stopped Nigeria reaching the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations finals, when they drew 2-2 with the Super Eagles in Abuja in October 2011.
