  • I like the way Nigeria always do the talking on the pitch

  • Nigeria already has a head start because SE played and won it’s Q4 match within regulation time and a day before SA….Also no traveling for SE and a days extra rest…..I hope coach piseiro takes full advantage of this factors.

      Nope, they’re traveling to Bouaké for the Semi Final fixture.

  • The Capo verdian were the architect of their misfortune. They had everything to win that match in normal time. Also there coach did not cover himself in glory with his silly substitute. How can you substitute all your best players in a match that you had upper hand.That is why I don’t like all this local coaches they lack technical accumen. Also don’t know why the Cape Verdian players were kicking their penalty in one side and the coach is there looking. Don’t think they practice penalty at all because all their kick were very poor and they played very good football. To be sincere to me they are the best team in this competition in term of playing pattern. See how they string passess together, long passes and very good control nice build up in fact I doff my hart for them. They were very very unlucky against South Africa yesterday but that is footbal. This is a lesson to my Nigerian fans it is not how good football you play but the result matters, the game is about winning winning. Oh! what a beautiful football by the Cape verdians no doubt they should be the team of the competition forget about who won. The only difference between them and South Africa was just technical. The South African coach is very good and calm i like the man so much.
