    Is it strange that Ejuke is not in the matchday squad? I thought the guy tormented Egypt, but was unlucky not to score.

      We don’t want that unluckiness to happen against Tunisia…you get?

    • I think Ejuke in the EG game is a more productive player than Chukwueze. He’s toned down on his selfish game. He knows how to weave past defences like Simon. Chukwueze is becoming predictable and can hardly use his right leg.

  • The Tunisians outsmarted us. The Nigerian mentality is to allow your success enter your head and relax. The Tunisians came with a plan and they followed it. The Eagles were not pushing or forceful. The Tunisians were there to beat and we couldn’t. It was disappointing.
