    Senegal know how to play gra gra football in Africa because CAF referees tolerates most of those physicalities. But in the world stage they will always find it difficult to make impact because FIFA referees do not tolerate rough play . Moreover it more of tactics than physicality. Let them go learn from Nigeria , Ghana and perhaps Cameron how to play at the world stage.

    At this stage Nigeria (Flying Eagles) should play as a united team. Emphasis should not be on who score goal, but determination to win. Let them see the next match as the final of finals. Unnecesary style of play is not important. Play together and put ball in the net.

    Naija football fans, we are never consistent, i thought Senegal has the best youth system in Africa. Yeye pple, they are african gragra.
    We expect Nigerian teams to win every competition they go for as of they are the only team in Africa.

    whach The Gambia

  • Gambia have been impressive,theyre a possession based,closely knit side that give much away and in my eyes are the TRUE African champion,Our beloved Nigeria are a decent and solid side that is capable of surprising even itself,the Tunisians are a gritty and feisty side with a tendency to explode in moments while Senegal is the local champion that huffed and puffed to no avail and I loved how they were disgraced out of this tournament.
