    Moffi would have scored all those chances that osimhen missed even Ighalo self would have used experience to bury the missed chances…

      Monkey ass: Why don’t you piss off commenting on matter less worrisome than your disgraceful outing against Cape Verde? Don’t you have shame?

  • Onwajunior 5 months ago

    Lol… Let’s no vilify Osimhen. I think we can all appreciate the fact that Rohr knew we had a problem with goal conversion and in one of his last matches recalled Ighalo to help fix that problem. Sometimes what elders see sitting…we are now seeing it.

    Did you observe that non of our player can shoot the ball very well? Moses Simon, Victor Osimhen, Zaidu, Iwobi, Aribo, Chukwueze, Lookman, etc. Most of them came close to the goal post but could not shoot hard.

    If Osimhen had fired a hot shot at the face of that Owono goal keeper, the next time Osimhen is coming, he will shift aside.

    It’s a pity. I wonder the ingredients/qualities the Coaches and NFF considers when inviting players?

    1. Pls who is our free kick specialist? Non abi? Except Iheanacho who tries small.

    2. Apart from Yusuf, others (Aribo, Iwobi, Onyeka) are below what a modern day midfielder should possess.
    Iwobi is only good at sleek passes to the striker but lack tenacity, poor tackler, deficient in skills, lacks inside/outside foot crosses, ability to receive the ball, facing the opponent, dribble to create chances, Long shots, …. Iwobi and Aribo cannot even tackle…. Can’t play free kicks…. A whole midfielders…come on, until we bring in new midfielders, we shall continue to complain and having poor & embarrassing results. SE have not gotten replacement for Jay Jay and Mikel Obi.

    Aribo and Iwobi are too soft and scared to face African physical teams. Didn’t you see how energetic Alhasan Yusuf played. Yusuf was everywhere (tackling hard, shooting, intercepting plays, passing, defending, contesting headers, dribbling, pushing the ball forward, …. Oh mine).

    The only above average midfielders we have now in the current SE are Ndidi, Yusuf,….. I have not really watched Onyedika in SE colours…

    2. Imagine our central defenders could not stop that shot for the 1st goal. All of them were just standing like an Iroko tree. None could stretch down to block the shot. It’s a pity.

    We need solid central defenders in the SE. Remember Taribo West, Yobo, Uche Okechukwu, etc. There was a case where it was just Yobo at the back in a counter against two opponents, he still stopped them and cleared the ball…..
    But now, we will have 2 or 3 defenders and one opponent will still shoot the ball and score. Sorry!

    3. What makes a winger if you cannot push the ball across your marker and cross in the ball or drive into the 18yard?????????????? (Go watch Victor Moses, Samuel Kalu)

    We have strikers who are very clinical in the air (Osimhen, Onuachu…) Why are they not receiving sparodic delicious crosses from everywhere??? Pls what’s the Coach’s game plan???

    After AFCON, we should go for certain players o; Samuel Kalu, Michael Olise, etc….Add others

    Infact, open camp and screen lots of players on merit basis and get some new crop of players with unique qualities befiting of the wing they play.

    Questions to ask;
    What are the qualities of a good goal keeper?

    What are the qualities that should be possessed by a good central defender?

    What are the qualities of a good midfielder (CM, DM, Am)???

    What makes a good attacking midfielder? Those we have now are afraid to come out to receive the ball in the midfield. Watch our last match, they were all hiding in between or behind the opponents instead of running out to space to receive the ball and face them..

    What makes a good winger?

    What makes a good attacker?

    The only positions the current SE can boast of now are; left back (Bruno&Zaidu&Bassey in that order), right back (Osayi Samuel&Aina) and strikers (but our striker must learn how to shoot with both feet & be more skillful&clinical).

    Shalom

    • Open camp for senior National Team?, you strong o

    • All what u wrote are crap. For goodness sake, those boys played extremely well except their poor finishing. Still the best team I have seen so far in this tournament, except bad luck befell them. The only players that messed up where Zaidu and Osimhen for poor finishing.

    Why do Nigerian fans always like to bitch about everything? This was the opening game of Nigeria’s campaign and they played quite well.
    In 2013 when they won the cup, their group matches resulted in one win and two draws – they went into the final group match with 2 points and were lucky to beat Ethiopia via 2 penalties.
    From what I saw yesterday, the only thing that stopped Nigeria from blowing out Eq. Guinea was a goalkeeper that was in phenomenal form that was all.
    Egypt would have been defeated by Mozambique, if not for a last minute penalty (with Mo Salah and all). Ghana lost to Cape Verde. Nigerians really need to cool down.
    In 2022, Nigeria won all its group games, only to crash out in the round of 16. You don’t get any medals for winning all your group games. Important thing is getting out of the group and hitting stride at the right time during the knockout stages.
    Good luck to the SE!

    Thumbs up brodaman. 80% of so called fans bitching the SE are doing so for their selfish reasons. THEY THINK THEY ARE SMART BY COMING OUT HERE TO LOOK FOR SUPPORT FROM IGNORANT FANS WHO WILL JOIN THEM FIGHT FOR THEIR SELFISH END. NO LET THESE SELF CENTRED EGO DRIVEN USE HEAD OOOO. SE played well considering the unfavourable weather though it could have been better and hopefully will definitely get better going forward. GOD BLESS ALL DESERVING SE, ALL TRUE SE FANS LOLZZZ. GOD BLESS ALEXANDER THE KING IWOBI, GOD BLESS OUR NEW FOUND GOAL KEEPER NWABALI. THANK TO OUR SELF ACCLAIMED SCOUT OMO NIJJA FOR SCIENCE IS DISCOVERY. GOD BLESS PESEIRO AND CREW. AAAAAAAWWUUUUURAAAA. VICTORY IS CERTAIN FOR SE ALL TO THE GLORY OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST.

    • Right again Glory. You make commenting here a joyous experience. The Super Eagles are title contenders, simple.

  • Senegal is still a team to beat in all ways. See composure and shots or goal from all angle, which all those super chickens midfielders lack. Unfortunately, we do not parade the best of super eagles standard.

    • Machaveli 5 months ago

      Troll or Tols: The likes of you will die of blood pressure when the Eagles begin to turn the screw. We know who you are. Ghana imposter.
