    It doesn’t matter whom Nigeria faces, you have to beat the best, to be the BEST. I repeat, to win it, Nigeria must beat the best that come our way.
    In the meantime, go to FIFA.com/vote. to submit your vote for your own Victor Osimhen. To our African brothers, Ghanaians, South Africans and other Africans both at Home and abroad, please, vote for Victor Osimhen as the best FIFA player in the World, 2022. It can happen if we all say so.

    Currently watching Liverpool vs LASK, I can for sure say that Tobias Lawal is good

    • Has he agreed to switch allegiance to Nigeria.I hope SE Gaffer would give opportunity to quality players and goalkeepers if at all he hopes to win AFCON 2024

  • Very interesting. I prefer Senegal for a start.

    Yes, Tobias Lawal is a good goalkeeper. He should be invited to the Super Eagles to fight for a shirt. I believe he will give good competition to the other goaltenders, and he is tall with good reflexes and can only get better with time. Coach Peseiro should please extend an invite to him.

    His only problem is that Austria don’t accept dual passport, which means if he wishes to play for us he will drop his Austrian passport. he has trained with the team before though.

    There is a guy name Micheal Folorunsho he played right back for Fiorentina . NFF we nee players like this to beef our national team.  He played today and actually played well. Then the Freiburg Keeper too. We need to approach them and if need persuade them by marketing the intentions of NFF and also make them see the good side of Nigeria . These players know most of our musicians if possible carry Burna boy , OBO go beg them for us.

    It dosen’t matter whom Super Eagles face ,I think if SE would like to win this cup , they must face big teams, but it needs good prepartion by NFF, good player’s selection and good tactics especially strong and rigorous tactics and organized football by Peseiro; Peseiro might play with his classic formation 4-4-2 or he can change it to 4-2-3-1 by putting tow strong defensive or holding midfielders like ( Ndidi,Al hassan Yusuf) or ( Ndidi , Esiti), then he can put Iwobi as number 10; Chukuwueze,Lookman will be atracking midfielders; Osimhen will be as striker, this on 4-2-3-1 formation; if he put 4-4-2 he can pair Iwobi with Ndidi ; Chukuwueze and Lookman in attacking midfield; Osimhen and Boniface are tow strikers.Peseiro must play organized and pressing football in order to control over the game or match,big teams like Morocco,Senegal,Tunisia,Algeria , Egypt need strong and drastic tactics to play with, good covering, strong pressing, good tackling , good finishing , good reading and studing the game , good players in good position, all these factors will leads the coaching crew and squad to win any match , even if the rival is big one.

  • He can win, he deserves it well. Best player, good striker, scoring machine young man. I really wish him the best

  • I like the confidence but please remember that other countries too are not sleeping….my favorite aside been a Nigeria will be Morocco and Senegal.

    Whether in Pot 1,2,3 or 4 a country desirous of winning AFCON must be ready to take on anybody. What’s the panic?
