    See Peseiro and Paul Bassey!It’s only in Nigeria that national team manager is also chief groundsman, otherwise the stadiums fall into disrepair and decay

    Nigeria has no quality playing turf… Complete shameless country. Yorubas and crusade killed National Stadium Lagos. The Abuja one is a millet farm. Poor maintenance culture and classless people! Meanwhile I am not excited about the Sao Tome & Principe game. Guys we already beat 10 goals to nil, so match has nothing serious about it. Some African Soccer National Teams have arranged a friendly match alongside their AFCON qualifiers but never Nigeria. Meanwhile Jose Peseiro should forget all that rudderless 4-4-2 he likes to play… You can’t beat any serious soccer nation playing 4man midfield (2 midfielders & 2widemen) in this day and age… Use that against Spain you won’t see the ball for 90minutes!

    @JimmyBall, did you re-read your post before hitting the comment button at all.
    “Yorubas and crusade killed National stadium Lagos”.
    What has tribe got to do with the state of the National Stadium, Surulere???

    Please and please educate me, perhaps I am missing something here…

    • GentleD, the most appropriate thing is to ignore the obviously attention-seeking, empty-headed moron. Do not dignify his silliness with any response.

      LMAO I can understand your frustrations and neither did he know when he spilled the truth out because Surulere is Yoruba land. Truth is bitter make una take am easy, eko o ni baje but national stadium Lagos just like Abuja is nothing to write home about.

      National Stadium Lagos Turf was killed by incessant use for Christian Crusade Purposes. After LG Cup of 2003, the rate at which crusades were held there to pack enough people repeatedly by the mega churches in Lagos killed the grass… this is Historyville!

    • JimmyBall 10 months ago

      …@GentleD, in the name of worshipping God and competition for converts to swell their congregation. The mega churches in Lagos were all guilty of using the Surulere National Lagos to host crusades where people come with the usual open defecation culture in Lagos mess up the whole toilet and trample on the grass bringing that sports arena to extreme derelict conditions… this is not just badmouthing but that was primarily what killed National Stadium Lagos… in the name of worshipping God and evangelism for christ.
