Blaming him for Nigeria’s exit, users wished him death and alleged that he was distracted by praises he got for his looks.

Here are some of the hurtful comments compiled by TGM:

NOT THE ONLY PLAYER TO BE THREATENED

Okoye was not the only Nigerian player to receive threats following the ousting of the Nigerian team. Alex Iwobi, a second-half substitute, who conceded a free kick and got sent off with a red card, also received threats.

In both their cases, there has been no confirmation that fans made efforts to follow through with the threats. But a similar case almost claimed the house of Kei Kamara, a Sierra Leonean striker.

After Kamara missed an 85th-minute penalty against Equitorial Guinea on Thursday, condemning his side to a 1-0 defeat, displeased fans marched to his house in Sierra Leone to burn it down.

However, security officials were quick to douse the situation. These events show what football fanatics can go to extreme lengths when matches do not go in their favour.

In 1994, Andres Escobar, a Colombian footballer was shot dead after scoring an own goal that eliminated his country from the FIFA world cup tournament.

With her goal, the United States, Colombia’s opponent, ended up winning 2-1. After the June 22, 1994 defeat, he returned to his home country and issued a statement that ‘life doesn’t end here’. But in the wee hours of July 2, 1994, he was shot six times while returning from a bar.
