    One would’ve expected the friendly to be btw ua and a d fellow potential afcon paticipating team like algeria, ghana, sudan, ethiopia have all done but mr “nonsense ” and his consortium of coaches have gone for a clubside that can’t even stand some of our domestic clubs on a very, very good day. Abi, them no wan show us preview of their “movie” before the competition starts proper? Hehehe…. Sidon look mode activated with my popcorn beside me.

      Mr Man go and sleep somewhere, because your white man is not the one leading the team. It is obvious you and your parrot boss are looking for excuses to discredit the current crew. I will suggest you get cable service to realize there is pandemic out there. And with only one week agreed upon to release players. so which afcon team will they be playing since everyone is preparing for the tournament proper. If you and parrot mouth like make una off Tv during Afcon, no one cares. Abeg no chop popcorn, you fit get cow shit and milk to drink

      Then friendly With cotonsport will be good… atleast they played in CAF competition last year… Now the boys need to take it easy to avoid injuries.

      Friendly games versus other nations are tight to organize now because of timing… injuries are also of concern, I think all these factors will be better if AFCON starts being hosted in June/July… it can be done because with science and technology regarding rains and weather… South America almost has same equitorial climate with rains in June as most parts of Sub Saharan Africa…

      Rainfall distribution by month in South Americas:

      Africa and CAF really has no excuse staging nations cup in June/July/August at which time all stakeholders across the globe will be happy. It’s a better solution than this unforgiving January/February schedule.

        @Jimmy:
        African countries that most of us don’t even have minimum standard playable pitch/stadium to play during dry season, na dem go apply science and tech to provide the facilities to play in the raining season abi.

    “You guys own”(Eguavon) think he is smart…LMAO!! But we all know the trick…Dude is scared of getting exposed quite too early before the tournament that is why he chooses to play a friendly against a small club like that… LMAO!!

    Despite the thrashing, I give Ghana kudos for having the balls to play against a top African team(3rd best in Africa)like Algeria.. That is how you get to know a team that is bold enough and not shying away from knowing their flaws on time so as to work on it before Jan 9…

     
  • Up!up!!up!!! Super Eagle, remain confidence and focus throught the tournament until you conquer the cup. I wish you all the best

    Afcon Fact: Nigeria has never won AFCON Cameroon took part in.

     
  • I don’t trust this squad to do well in Cameroon. No preparation. No clicking together. I have my fears.
