  • Things are surely moving in the right direction with 23 players now in camp and several testing negative for Covid after initial positive tests.

    The Super Eagles should expectedly be able to produce vibrant football across no less than 5 matches in Cameroon.

    Anything more that 5 games will be a blessing owing to our initial-derailed preparations and the quality of other teams in this tournament.

    The mood in the camp is said to be high and preparations are slowly picking up pace. The goalkeepers are having their drills and the outfield players are being taken through their paces.

    It’s all great stuff! And inevitably building up to the production of a fascinating and truly memorable outing against Egypt in our first match.

    Expectations are starting to rise and it appears that recent upheavals might prove to be a minor wrinkle in what would eventually be a memorable journey for the Super Eagles in Cameroon.

    One can only take an optimistic tone to the Nigeria’s Afcon installment this month. To be honest, even if Rohr were incharge, there would still have been glitches in the Super Eagles preparations. This would have been no fault of Rohr’s as the NFF are experts at rubbish preparations.

    If one unnecessarily broods over NFF’s disgraceful handling of the team’s spadework ahead of this tournament, the enjoyment of it will be lost: I won’t allow Amaju and his gang do that to me. Rather, I will pay less attention to the glass house flim-flammery and focus more on the team’s tactical approach to matches and how patriotic the players are in wearing the green-white-green. They aren’t the first athletes to work under a poorly organised Nigerian FA.

    Sadly, I am afraid they will not be the last! NFF and shoddy management aren’t mutually exclusive.

    Hence, we are where we are.

    Feelers from the camp suggests a measure of zen and phlegmatisim among the players and coaches which bode well for the team’s psychological and mental preparedness for the challenge ahead.

    I am now looking ahead to our first encounter with renewed interest and great optimism.

    So, all I can say now is: Come on Super Eagles! Come on Super Eagles!

      Great piece. If you ask me, we’re dreaming of an exciting outing for the SE. Yea, that exhilarating, razzmatazz outing that accelerates the heart beat and drives emotion through the roof . . . and produces results. Not the soporific stuff we’ve been forced to endure lately.

      Who says this crop of players can’t give us a sterling performance? The groundwork was not it as you alluded to, but Nigerians shine most when expected to fold.

      Go the SE.

  • Safe trip lads……our prayers are with you……Go to battle and fight like true warriors……we can bring back the Afcon…….It is possible no matter the condition that preceded the tournament…….All we need to do is want it the most and show it on pitch that we want the Afcon the most.
