Italians are of the Opinion that Nigerian fans were responsible for the lackluster performance of Juventus defender Angello Ogbonna in last nights 2-2 draw with the African champions.
The Juventus defender was continually booed┬á by┬á Nigerian fans even before the blast of the whistle. Things didn’t get better on┬á the night┬á for Ogbonna when Shola Ameobi beat him in the air to give Nigeria a 2-1 lead.
An Italian Newspaper caught this from a┬á fan┬á in the stands “Se non andr├á in Brasile, ripenser├á al momento in cui sÔÇÖ├¿ fatto bruciare dallÔÇÖultratrentenne Shala Ameobi”. Translated as┬á “If you do not go to Brazil rethink of the moment when you were made to burn by the Thirty Something year old Shola Ameobi”.
Angelo Obinze Ogbonna is of Nigerian decent but chose to represent Italy at international level. He┬á made his senior debut for the Italian┬á on 11 November 2011 in a friendly won 2ÔÇô0 against Poland.
