Nigeria against Ghana: Eguavoen, the Super Eagles snub the media after failing to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar
After failing to qualify for the 2022 World Cup on Tuesday, neither a player nor a coach from the Nigerian team talked to reporters.

In front of their home fans, however, they were only able to draw 1-1, with William Troost-penalty Ekong's canceling out Thomas Partey's opener.

In addition, no players or even the head coach, Augustine Eguavoen, attended the post-match press conference.
The squad bus remained at the stadium for over two hours after the game had ended.
