    DRC Congo or Mali are two teams super eagles fans would wish to draw.
    Both teams are very strong though but have less pedigree than our team.
    History matters in football,Cameroon progressed ahead of Ivory coast because they have better pedigree than their opponent who put up brave fight and was unfortunate not to score thanks to terrific saves by Andre Onana in goal for Cameroon.Im sure Okoye would have conceded if he was between the sticks for Cameroon.

    Pinnick please Save Nigerians from this calamity Coach, Egypt and Ghana fired a technically inept coach and within a space of a month their new coach changed their fortune. A good coach doesn’t need a year to perform Chelsea also did same with Tuchel and Conte of Tottenham as well. It’s either you save the ship or we all sink together out of fear of what beholds. Rohr is not a technical adviser 5 years is enough to access a Coach. I don’t know who we can defeat amongst all this teams if Rohr keeps saying CAR Liberia and Cape Verde teams are highly technical.

      Can u sack an employee who always meet up with target? How many of our local coaches met up with their target. And if rohr leaves today who do u think will replace him, NFF gave him target of qualifying for both nations and world cup, he did that. So on wat bases are u crying for his dismissal, i thought u claim to work for a functioning and well structured organisation. Can an organization sack its worker who is meeting up to all the target given to him?. Which do u prefer, play conscious and qualify or play fancy game like siasia and fail to qualify. If u don’t like rohr as our coach u can switch off ur TV set any time Nigeria have match, or better still go and drag him out of d coaching stand

    But why is NFF and Pinnick finding it difficult to sack this man? Pinnick said they have to pay Rohr the sum of $2m to terminate the coach contract. Is he telling well meaning Nigerians that NFF doesn’t have that money to do away with this man? It is said that “…the person the devil wants to kill, he first make mad”. If NFF does not want to be honourable in their doing the needful, they will be disgraced. If the drama is not good, do you change the script or the dramatist personnel? MY PRAYER IS IF THESE PEOPLE (NFF) REFUSED TO LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF REASON, EVEN IF NIGERIA IS SEEDED AS ONE OF THE TOP FIVE IN NOVEMBER FIFA RANKING, LET THEM RECEIVE THE DEFEAT OF THEIR PLAYING CAREER AND LET ALL THESE CHARLATANS IN THE GLASS HOUSE (NFF) BE COVERED IN SHAME IN JESUS NAME. AMEN AND AMEN.

    • Because if they pay off Rohr, there will be less for the NFF bigwigs to squander/grab. It is not hard to see

      This was how we pray for God to remove goodluke and we end up with buhari, pls b careful of what u pray for. Just as u are not seeing any good in him even though he is meeting target, that is how others will not c good in u even if u share ur blood to make sure things work out

    The coach makes good selections, but, can’t seem to find a way to utilize the choices within his grasp. He is not playing to the strength of the team. His strengthies within the attacking front will awe inspiring strikers. Send the ball upfront,etc the attackers scramble for it. The midfield is on life support, defense is brittle, easily breached. Use your attackers to establish equilibrium until the.

    It’s shame that Nigeria has only one player at the moment. His name is Victor Osihmen.Speed,Passion,Ball sense and determination, He has got all of these.NFF,Please go to the family of Victor Osimhen and request if they have other sons that can play for SE, I really don’t see any current player with his kind of passion.Even Wilfred Nididi, let me down, played below standard. NFF, please Sack Rohr, He will take us no where and I don’t see SE beating any team In Europe, even Cyprus Armania, Moldova, Luxembourg will beat SE silly. Cape Verde thought SE a football lesson. We just lucky on the night.
