    Whatever happens in June 2024 and August 2025 will determine whether we will be at the next World Cup.

    History has shown that our players are usually most lethargic between the off-season and the start of the new season

  • With GOOD Coach handling Super Eagles the likes of South Africa and others in our group are beatable at home and away. Period

    • Dr. Drey 9 months ago

      So your own Super Eagles are not beatable home and away….?

      Our opponents do not even need good coaches to defeat the SE….they already have the NFF to help them with that.

    At the last of European season in june NFF must organize friendly matches for Super Eagles before next encounter of World cup qualifier so that the player will be on form not on lethagric situation.

      I hope the new technical crew will capitalize on this…. They should make themselves useful

    With the best legs that shall prosecute these games. Nigeria shall come on top and qualify. Historically,
    some of these Countries are already conceding and wetting their pants. We appreciate the new sport Minister by return Super Eagle to Uyo as opposed to Pinnick who would take the team to Balogun Lagos, or Asaba where the home advantage is evaporated.

    We need serious midfielders now, damn  we don’t ve any world class midfielders. Guys please fish them out before is too late.we can copy England,move Aina to attacking midfield let’s what he can do. I’m not willing to swim and sink with Ndidi and Iwobi, we need more options. By the way Onyedika is not eagles material. Guys pls remove sentiments.

    My only concern is officiating because that has always been our greatest undoing.

  • Kennyson 9 months ago

    I had same thoughts when i saw the list… This coach seems to be more intrested in strikers than midfielders.
