    So they now introduced a mini tournament for FIFA ALL PLAY off from each confederations! Amazing 

    The fifa play off tournament is also going to be lit 

  • This 48 nations world cup will make it highly competitive. For any country that will win the tournament should be ready to play 8 games and win next 5 games at stretch after group stage.

  • TALK UR OWN 12 months ago

    FORGET GHANA, ALGERIA, SENEGAL, CAMEROON.
    LET PRAY THAT NIGERIA SHOULD NOT BE GROUP ALONG WITH COMOROS, GAMBIA, EQ.GUINEA, C.A.R, BOTSWANA, CAPE-VERDE. BECAUSE THESE ARE THE MOST IMPROVE AFRICA TEAM THAT CAN SERVE AS SPOILER TO SUPER EAGLE.
    AND DUE TO UNSERIOUSNESS OF OUR PLAYERS THAT LIKE TO BE PLAYING LIKE CHICKEN ON THE FIELD together with SENTIMENT & CORRUPTION OF OUR COACHES & NFF, AM NOT SURE THAT NIGERIA WILL QUALIFY FOR NEXT WORLD CUP.

    From experience world cup qualifiers are not beans and now that we have lost our fear factor at home, may God save us in Jesus name.

    We should adopt Uyo for our home games,we need to use every advantage to achieve qualification.
    We cannot afford to miss the World Cup again after Qatar 2023 heartbreak.Won’t forget so easily how Selfmade and Yaw led there Ghanaian troops to rub it in our face everyday on this site,it was a long and difficult experience I wouldn’t want to go through again.

    I WILL LIKE TO ADVICE THE UPCOMING GOVERNMENT TO BE BUSINESS-MINDED AND BAN SUPER EAGLE IN PARTICIPATING IN W/C QUALIFIER DUE TO THEIR UNSERIOUSNESS & LACK OF COMMITMENT ON THE FIELD OF PLAY. AS A STAKEHOLDER, THIS WILL HELP GOVERNMENT TO SAVE A LOT OF COST AND INVEST ON OTHER SPORTING EVENT THAT WILL BENEFIT THE WHOLE NIGERIA.
