Despite the attempts and goal scoring chances created by both of the teams in the match, they failed to convert them into a goal tonight.

The Referee was however, right with this decision. Here is why.

The black stars player that committed the handball in the penalty box was fouled by Kelechi Iheanacho, outside the box.

The black stars player handled the ball in the box as a result of the foul tackle on him by kelechi Iheanacho. Hence, the need for the referee to overrule the decision.

In as much as we want the Super Eagles to win tonight, we want to win the match in a fair play.
