  • Why I guess what the boys actually needed what just a boost in morale. But if the coach takes over and we go back to our rhor days. I think the nff should do the right thing if they don’t want to see Nigerians’ anger. They believe the white men can do better than the locals cause this new coach is known for being friends with Mourinho lol

    • If Cezero or Cesero wins this Afcon, we will occupy Nigeria against any oyibo coach

    If Eguavoen wins Afcon , he takes us to the World Cup period !!!… taking us to the world cup should be his motivation and Picnic will not stop , neither is the new coach !!.. Eguavoen is our own and this is the first time I am watching Super Eagles with no BP!!..Not that we won , we outplayed our opponent and that is what super eagles is known for .

    • It’s true o. I watched SE for d 1st times with my legs crossed without hb pressure. I even go about doing other things in d house without stress. If we value our own, who else will.

    Victory is sweet. We dont need a foreign who is not needed by his country. We have men who can deliver. Football has no language.

    If our own wins the AFCON, he takes us to the World Cup. If the Oyinbo is imposed on us by the power-that-be, then we make the Administration ungovernable and born down their hiding places both in Abuja and in Lagos.
