Super Eagles goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa will be heading back home from the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia a happy man after gaining one valuable souvenir – Lionel Messi’s match shirt.
A video clip making the rounds on social media shows the moment Super Eagles’ second goalkeeper, Ikechukwu Ezenwa, asking Barcelona star, Lionel Messi to give him his shirt after Nigeria’s 2-1 defeat to Argentina in the 2018 World Cup on Tuesday night.

The Enyimba International of Aba shot-stopper, was trailed with mixed reactions and criticisms from angry Nigerians who mostly condemned Ezenwa’s action, while others were of the opinion that Messi was his role model and his shirt was priceless.

Meanwhile, here are some comments of Nigerians on Twitter who reacted after Ezenwa was caught on camera collecting Messi’s shirt.

@Chris: “I think that’s all u went to Russia to do. That’s y while others were crying u were busy eye- monitoring Messi. I hope u will present it to buhari as the trophy your team promised him.”

@Candor: “But there is nothing wrong with that. We all have mentors and role models in our various professions. whom we get resource materials,advice,and guidiance from.”

@Mykel: “Useless goalkeeper, that’s why I never supported u to be number 1.had it been Messi lost that match, would he give u d jersey?.”

@Anonymous: “Disgraceful, uncultured, typical lowlife embarrassing Igbo behaviour, to ask of the shirt off another person’s body, greed, and he will use it to boast and show off to others. If you see nothing wrong with this, you are poorly raised. I really dont expect different from a local lowliife like you. Game recognise game and youre just too stupid to understand.”

@Uche: “Haters!!!! at Mykel and Chris, like you wouldn’t do the same…That’s a world superstar(Messi)”.

@Victor: “@chris and mykel, why the hate? If messi came to Nigeria, do you know how many supporters will struggle to get his autograph? Either we won that game or not, exchange of jerseys would have still happened. Its just pure sportsmanship.”

@Idowu: ”dey there ezenwa for collecting world best player jersey.”

@Ayo: “Me think ezenwa attitude shows he is always after personal glory .do u know that fifa president visited Nig dressing room at some point in Russia and guess what he ezenwa was the only player who suddenly put up his phone for a personal selfie with the distinguish visitor to the embarrassment of nnf president who almost push him away. Don’t get me wrong iits good to be bold but boldness as a limit especially wen your team seems to be in mourning mood U don’t go about doing otherwise else pple will think u don’t care about what was going on at that time ,and for me that is a show of lack of patriotism. Think about this:if Argentina had lost that game would they have time to be exchanging jersey with any of our players? The answer is noooo. Ezenwa has further shown that blacks don’t have common sense as we don’t feel for ourselves even in time of defeat of such magnitude . Sebi is happy we lost and narrowing it down uzoho as failed and ezenwa is happy ? No problem .whatever u do to others some will do it to u too. What ezenwa did was bad timing by him and is shameful to say the least.”
