    Where are all those that were hailing the Egyptians ??? Nigerians and inferiority complex are 5 & 6. Currently Ghana is losing 0-1 to Cape Verde.

      Your mentality is too low you’re using another teams draw to encourage the nonsense result we earned today. Carry on go and make a feast because Egypt or any other drew as well.

      When the team is knocked out I wonder what you will be saying.  Unfortunately, the players also share same mentality with you. Nigerian football is a reflection of our society and it’s on a downward spiral

    @Emecco our arrogant too much. There are more minnows in Africa again. It’s even hard to play these minnows than big boys because they have cohesion working for them. Egypt was lucky to have a draw , Ghana too will be lucky to pull a draw in this match.
