    Brilliant result.Cape Verde victory would have put us under pressure to win against them next week Tuesday.
    Winning against Liberia is not negotiable,it’s a must win game.
    Victory on Friday will put us in pole position and Cape Verde would be under pressure to win against the super eagles, because a loss means they are five points behind should we win our first game.

    • U wil Be surprised. 4 : 4 wil be the score Nigeria vs Liberia i put 100k on it

      • Crystal Chris 3 years ago

        Bring the 100k let me hold it. No be by mouth.No go use your annual salary bet o lol

  • Please guys, let us respect Liberia.Matches are not won on the pages of newspapers .They also came prepared to win , there are no push over in African football anymore

    • Respect or no respect, seems you’ve not seen where those guys from Liberia ply their soccer trade? The their biggest star play in Czech Republic, before you say club don’t play football, I sure know that but beating Liberia in our own backyard is not negotiable .

  • The eagles ruthlessness and confidence is the key. Respecting them should come last. We the fans don’t expect anything short of a 90 mins all round possessive play with constant attacks. As I watched the seriousness of those guys at the Anfield stadium against Chelsea. I knew Liverpool where bent on and determined to beat Chelsea. But luckily for Chelsea they had to parked the bus. With all indications here and there the Liberians are came here for victory orto grab a draw.

    Nigeria has no business losing to or drawing with these teams in our group who have never won any international trophies. People often say “there are no minnows anymore.” With due respect, but I don’t see why Nigeria should panic playing Liberia in Lagos

    • Sunnyb 3 years ago

      Anything short of spanking the lone stars, the super Eagles doesn’t have any business in Qatar.has nothing to do about respect or disrespect, is about pedigree and accomplishments

    Nigeria will smash Liberia with about 4 goals. Just like Mexico smashed Nigeria in their last International friendly match the other day.

  • Common. If we can’t best Liberia in Nigeria we should forget world cup. It shows we are not serious

    Nigerians are very funny people. When we play against teams whose players play in low/backwater leagues or their local leagues, we demand and expect 5-0 thrashing, 6-0 thrashing and all other sorts of thrashings because we have supposedly bigger players playing in bigger leagues…..yet we advocate for players from our local league or low/backwater leagues to be allocated slots in our national team ahead of those playing in the big leagues.

    Awazzy and Nacho be the professional drummers. Uzoho na the lead singer 🙂
    Even the muslims Musa and Shehu joined in the singing.
    United squad.

      “…Rohr has killed the confidence of the team…” yen yen yen yen…..as if they are with the team in camp to see what goes on and hear what the coach tells them behind closed doors.

      Does this team look like one lacking in confidence despite being owed for 2 years….????

      A team with “killed” confidence yet picking over 75% of possible points haul is its competitive games…..LMAOoooo

    • Nice one @pompei, tnx for sharing…. The boys look high on morale!
