The Leganes defender trained separately to the rest of the group during Wednesday’s training session at the VSTS-ANNEX, Roumde Adija Stadium, Garoua.

      Algeria may not qualify from their group, mark my words. If they qualify from the group, they will be eliminated by a minnow team. Just watch.

    You guys made us proud yesterday, beautiful football played the Nigerian way,I wish u guys good luck in your next matches,failed coach rohr was lambasting the team he coached for six years and later weakened yesterday bf the match saying that we don’t have players playing for man u, Liverpool and man City therefore Egypt and Algeria are better and that Egypt will beat us,but my guys made me happy and proved him wrong .

      Lolzzzzz. We are happy we our Super Eagles. Fans who are no longer interested in Nigerian football should just stay away. Lolzz.
      Heaven bless Eguavoen and all deserving Super Eagles champions.

    He played like the Kenneth Omeruo of 2013 Afcon, FIFA Confederation Cup and 2014 FIFA World Cup. His passing from the back was excellent.
    Well, if he’s not fit enough to start next game, it’s a chance for Awaziem or Ajayi to show their worth.

    Get fit quick Kenneth

  • Good. No time to waist..

  • Happy 7 days ago

    Where are the Super Eagles haters? Go and cuddle live wire.

  • Work well done Kenneth. You can even take your rest for next match while Awaziem or Ajayi Stand in for you.

    Eguavoen, let’s retain the same Starting eleven we used for Egypt. Except Chukwueze position. It’s like he is not fully fit yet. Ejuke may start pending the time Chukwueze would be fully fit.
    Moses really tormented the opponent from the left wing somebody must be doing the same from the right wing.

    If the attack is coming from left, right and centre, no team would be able to withstand Nigeria. This will help not Ihanacho and Awoniyi to score many goals.

    Well done guys.

    God bless Nigeria.

    Bad belle people, how market na

  • Kenneth will be ok before Saturday and if it’s not too good he can rest the Sudan and Guinea-Bissau game and ready for the round of 16 games.
    Meanwhile, I’ll advise the boys that they shouldn’t underestimate Sudan. If they have the opportunity, they will score and disgrace you. Nigerians fans are unforgivable fans. They will remember. Now that they are cruising, the boat should not stop o. It’s a good thing they have started retraining immediately after yesterday. It may be light one but by tomorrow ernest training will start. Sudan and Guinea-Bissau are strategizing now. So be careful.

  • So everyone now beingginning to understand when i always used the words beautiful football cus super eagles really played beautifully this is how nigeria played
