    Goodluck Team Nigeria Goodluck Mr Bosso please be sincere with the selections and go for the trophy to bring back smiles to Nigerians with all that’s going on in the country and the continuous dismal performance by the falcons.

    Nigeria should win this one, the flying Eagles are more talented than the Senegalese, they have a good and dangerous player in the attack, their captain (Samba Diallo, no 10) who plays like Sadio Mane, but the flying Eagles should be able to stop him and if they do, they will carry the day.

    ‘Experience’ will help them scale through, meaning Bosso is back to his old antics of using overaged players instead of taking the time and work to groom actual 20 year olds.
    Well, we all saw how that went.
