🗣 AFCON 2021: Rio Ferdinand reveals which country he supported

Rio Ferdinand always loves to show his passion. The former Manchester United has revealed which nation he supported at AFCON 2021.

The former England captain went on Twitter to reveal that the Super Eagles of Nigeria were the team he held close to his heart, before their sudden elimination on Sunday night.

Ferdinand posted a simple quote tweet of Nigeria’s official account saying “Let’s goooo, soar Super Eagles.”

Nigeria had gone into the last 16 round as the best team in the tournament with three wins out of three in the group stages. Sadly though, tournament football is cruel. Nigeria were sent crashing out after Tunisia claimed a 1-0 win, thanks to Youssef Msakni’s 47th-minute strike.

Meanwhile, Nigeria are now looking ahead to facing Ghana in the final play-off match for the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
