Former Super Eagles Player, Victor Ikpeba came under serious scrutiny for his comments during the world cup qualifiers game between Nigeria and Zambia.
Ikpeba first drew the ire of fans, female especially, when he said that football is not a ‘woman’s’ game. The Nigerian international was also roasted for referring to English football club, Arsenal as ‘Arsenal city’.
See some of the reactions to IKpeba’s different blunders.

Hear Victor Ikpeba o! “Football is a men’s sport, not a women’s sport.” In another country, he would have been in the headlines tomorrow.
