    I would have wanted a draw but this is not bad for us.

    Iwobi is badly missed .People like Ikpebe Victor will go about criticizing Iwobi.See how SE struggle to create chances without his lubrication in midfield. Good substitute for Iwobi is urgently needed going forward.

      Ogbeni shut up. Is iwobi the only player nigeria as. Abeg save your data if you have nothing to say.

  • A disaster has happened……Now the enemies of coach Rhor will flood this place to rejoice like baboons on heat….. You can’t win all games because losing only makes us stronger and know our mistakes…… Collins offers nothing in attack he can’t even cross properly…….Moses was not crossing to my taste today with too many flat corner kicks…….Balogun and Ekong don’t coordinator balls coming from the back well and their defending is scary and weak sometimes……SE doesn’t have a play maker and the CAR took advantage of it today by playing man on man with us……..No much supply was getting to the strikers…..better game next time.

      Big brother nobody hates Rohr . We all want Eagles to perform well that’s why we complain all the time of lapses here and there.

    I am not an Oga Rohr fans but then I can’t blame him nor the players . Rohr selected the best and the players , particular the goalkeeper tried .

    The only difference is the Cape Verde were more resilient and played to their game plan, well piloted by their daring coach .

    This game has just thought us once again , big names and big clubs players may not necessarily translated to great result.

    Rohr and the players must take this result as a great lesson , and then sit up.

    We should also stop overhyped of our players and Rohr .

    Oga Rohr need to get good playmaker and then need to up his tactical approach to games

  • When I tell you Onyinye Wilfred Ndidi is the rightfull Captain of this squad una go dey roll eyes okay o no shaking. Ndidi doesn’t just stop attacks he starts them too from the same attack he stopped thats irreplaceableif you ask me.

    Like i mentioned a few weeks ago Ndidi is as important to Nigeria as he is to Leicester City

    Anyway i think we lost because over confidences the boys felt they had already won before they kicked the ball. Its a learning experience for extremely talented young players and it is the first time some them played together. I.e. Frank Onyeka was made to fill in a very important part of the team. Ndidi’s shoes thats not easy again just ask Leicester City.

    Also I will add and I have too. Rohr lacks sound and interesting football knowledge. The boys are playing a boring game. And if you guys think tactical Coaches aren’t important then you will have to ask yourself why they are costing as much as players in club football these days. Anyway I think Nigeria needs Herve Renard

    In saying that i believe they will now take CAR seriously and the second leg will be a different story

    Of course the blame will be on the coach, if we had won the coach would be praised. Wrong substitution. Musa and Kalu didn’t impact the game. Simon is more effective on the left wing,, the reason why he has the most assist. Ejuke should learn how to release the ball on time.
    Ekong’s recovery is shocking. Whenever he goes forward he leaves a hole behind and the CAR capitalized on this wrong positioning. They had similar chances thrice and finally scored from Ekong’s error. Balogun tried to bail him but he was clumsy as well..
    Play Simon from the left and utilize Aina as wing back.
    352 formation will open up the game against a defensive team and the attackers will have more opportunity.
    We paid dearly for a wrong substitution and the technical superiority of the CAR bench is evident. Another team that is about 100 behind us in ranking has showed Belmadi’s boy pepper..

  • NDIDI is the most important player in Leicester City


    And you have clearly seen Today that the same applies for Nigeria, Thats why he is nicknamed Great wall of China it double Engine take ur pick

    Its just a pitty Etebo is injured, because 2 CDMs in the shape of Onyeka and Etebo in the second leg would not have been a bad Idea.
