Nigeria had missed the 2006 World Cup in Germany and so the expectations for the Super Eagles 2010 squad were high. The Nigeria Squad 2010 World Cup were seen as the most likely African team that could reach the semi-finals.

They had recently won the 2007 World Youth World Cup, and these talented players had the hope of the African continent behind them.

It did not go to plan as the Nigeria Squad 2010 World Cup were knocked out in the group stage. They lost 1-0 to Argentina in the first game.

Greece was the shock result beating Nigeria 2-1 in the second game.

And in the final Group B game against South Korea, they need to win to advance. After taking an early lead, they found themselves down 2-1 just after half-time. Yakubu scored a penalty with 20 minutes remaining.

The super eagles pushed and pushed for the winner. However, South Korea held on for the draw.
