Nigerians may just have run out of patience with Chippa United and Super Eagles goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi after another unassured 45 minutes against Argentina on Tuesday.

Daniel Akpeyi, who has been in the Super Eagles fold for a while, has messed up his chance of being named as Nigeria’s first choice goalkeeper.

Akpeyi’s bizarre school-boy error — picking up a dropped up outside the box —  was duly punished by Ever Banega in the 29th minute.

Seven minutes later, the Chippa United goalkeeper was hesitant as Pavon bore down on goal, allowing the Argentine winger time and space to play a timely pass for Aguero to double Argentina’s lead.

Just as unforgiving as Nigerians were about Ikechukwu Ezenwa four days ago, Daniel Akpeyi deservedly suffered a similar fate.

The Super Eagles recovered well to hand Jorge Sampaoli his first defeat at the helm of the Albiceleste, thriving 4-2 with Arsenal forward Alex Iwobi grabbing a brace while debutant Brian Idowu and Kelechi Iheanacho rounded off the scoring.
