  • It’s you that will be praising them tomorrow. I wish them good luck, luck was not on our side that y we couldn’t win the match. The eagles played very well, if not their coach could have been making noise now, but he knows that lucky rode on them he couldn’t talk, come tomorrow eagles 3 Benin 0.

      Bros I support the super eagles are coming victorious tomorrow.

  • tayo 1 week ago

    Yes Eagles played very well but do they outplay their opponent? No it was a balance game 50:50 that can go either way

    • The Super eEagles were marginally better than the Banyana. The stats show that in the game. We expect a better result tomorrow or else we should forget about qualification.

    Thanks God for the journey mercies. This is a rare opportunity to see the former coach of the Super Eagles once again.

    If Oga can beat Super Eagles tomorrow, I will accept that NFF and we patriotic Nigerians made a huge mistake by asking the NFF to sacked Oga Rohr but If Finidi play good football and win convincingly tomorrow then Amaju pinnick should be blamed for hiring such a coach for Nigeria.

    I know that many former Oga Rohr fans will be praying and fasting for Oga Rohr to win tomorrow’s match but we the patriotic Nigerians are praying also and we just want to prove to ourselves who is better between our own and the foreign coach.

    So, tomorrow encounter is totally different ball game. It’s beyond a match.

    It is a matter that have bn on ground for years and I am deeply happy that we are going to know the answer tomorrow.

    Kai, you former Oga Rohr followers, how you na dey ooo? How market ba? No tension please. Tomorrow is the judgment day for you people and your former manager lol. Fingers crossed.

    For we Super Eagles fans, put your minds at rest. “Ęlọfọkanbalę”. Victory is ours. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

      Hahahaha…..see this one that disappeared for 2 days coming here to talk about no tension…..LMAOooo.

      No tension and yet you are writing epistles all over the place since you managed to summon some courage to come back to CSN after shame did not let you comment for 2 days….LMAOoo.

      We did not hear your usual “even though I didn’t watch the match, but I watched the highlight on youtube” and the subsequent bladderdash of an analysis of a match you didn’t watch…..LMAOooo

      O boy o je ma pa ara e. This one that people now die like fowl due to cardiac arrests when SE play matches, something that never happned even under an ordinary PE teacher like Rohr.

      First of all winning Rohr tomorrow does not qualify the SE for the WC….wait till the SE qualify for world cup before you know whether the NFF did the right thing or not. The last time Nigeria qualified for World Cup was under Rohr, and at no time were we ever bottom of our WCQ group like we are now. Let me not even remind you that we qualified for that World Cup with 5 point lead and 1 game to spare and….in a group that contained a former African Champion, a defending African Champion and an Incoming African Champion…….not this type of disrespectful group where still Lesotho, Benin and Rwanda are currently above us…….LMAOooo.

      So wait till that record is surparsed before you start passing verdicts over an NFF decision that we are still paying for till today…..LMAOOo. “we sacked rohr to avert disaster”……LMAOOoo. That disaster is 1 more draw away from becoming a PANDEMIC now…..LMAOoo. Imagine Nigeria not qualifying for the WC back to back (thanks to your local coaches), the same way we couldn’t qualify for AFCON back to back under your owns, before Rohr came and made it bread and butter for us all the time.

      Rohr again did us a favour by helping us use a lowly Benin republic to halt rwanda who could have been 4 points ahead of us now, yet instead of us going top of the group, we even dropped lower…..LMAOo.

      To save yourself from the heartbreak that turned you to a deaf and dumb boy on this forum for 2 days, better prepare your mind for a draw (especially with this learner coach who doesn’t even know how to select a starting XI yet).

      1 thing Rohr has helped this Benin team to do more regularly than before is scoring goals. They now average 1 goal per game…..while your own Super Eagles too seem to struggle to score more than 1 goal per game these days, and we only kept clean sheets when we played 7 men in defence……LMAOoo. Should Finidi line up another 4 man defence again tomorrow Nwabali will surely pick the ball from his net again before the end of 90 minutes…..LMAoooo

      Benin has played a draw with the current and immediate past African champions in recent times, so what is so special about the SE and their Kindergarten coach that leaves a Paul Onuachu on the pitch for 80mins while Moffi and Boniface were on the bench.

      If teams like Mali and South Africa can make hot dogs out of the SE under Finidi without even leaving gear 2, there is a very high possibility that a below average team like Benin can pull a draw if they play at gear 5.

      So for the sake of your own health….better limit your expectations, before SE turn you to a salah ram

      You are saying no tension upandan, but everything you have been writing since morning has tension written all over it for you….LMAooo. You are even seeking the help of God to beat Benin republic…..LMAOoo. Can you imagine…..Benin republic…..LMAOooo

      He talks from his noise and don’t even know it. If praying & fasting can win a match for you, Saudi Arabia would’ve won the World Cup several times by now.
      If the former Oga was still with us, we would not miss the last World cup and so on. omo9ja, are you happy with Finidi to see what is doing to Nigeria football today? There is a rumor going round that he is taking bribe from some players why he left out Boniface.


    We all should remember that even though it’s a home game for Benin republic, but in an actual fact, it’s a neutral ground still. So I see no reason why SE can’t just for heaven sake win tomorrow. All the same , I wish them the best of luck.

  • The Line up should be as follow’s

    Osayi Samuels

    Ndidi (C)
    Bashiru if FIt (if Not Iwobi)


    Boniface and Onuachu can also play together. Onuachu played better than I have seen him play in a while he looked more composed and Balanced how ever Chukwueze and Lookman on either flanks of Boniface is a more dangerous tactic. This team will beat Benin Republic and would have beaten South Africa, Boniface had to play. We need more from George Finidi, He needs to realise this is not only about him because if he Lose this game we will campaign for him to be bundled out of his position as Coach of Super Eagles. Thank You!!!

    P.s. Next Time if Ekong is Fit like he is he must not try leave Ekong behind Same with Taiwo Awoniyi

    Rohr did not win any trophy for Nigeria, but he did very well for us while he was with us.
    A coach that led us to victory against current world champions Argentina? A coach that terrorized our arch rivals Cameroon?
    True SE fans will always appreciate him.
    But tomorrow, for 90 minutes, we will set our love for Rohr aside, and we will try our best to beat him and his team.
    After the match, we will give him a big hug, and our love and appreciation for him will continue.
    Tomorrow is a must win for Nigeria!!!
    We can’t afford to drop points and start hoping for other teams in the group to do us favours!
    The die is cast. The gauntlet has dropped. Go big, or go home.
