Aleksandar Mitrovic netted a second-half double to give Serbia the 2-0 win at the Hive Stadium in London.
“Serbia 2 – 0 Nigeria Just when we were boasting that things have CHANGED Serbia came like Bill Gates to tell us the bitter truth,” a Twitter user wrote.
“Poland scored against Nigeria, it was cancelled ! Serbia scored against Nigeria, it was also cancelled ! This luck may not continue in Russia oh #NGASRB,” another user wrote.
“With the performance of our Super duper Eagles so far, my heart is telling me they are going to Russia just to play 3 friendly matches,” another user wrote.
“Let’s not deceive ourselves we are not ready at all for the World Cup . And who is his uzoho? Guy can’t keep for sh**,” another disappointed Nigerian wrote on Twitter.
The game was heavily followed on Twitter as two items ‘@NGASRB and Serbia’ from the friendly made it top the top trends.
