      Bros I doubt if you’re truely a Nigerian o. Take it easy on these guys naw!!. They’re busy trying to make us proud. No negative comments on their efforts please! All we can do is to support them and hope for the best.

      • Bro, talk is too cheap. How has their talk translated to real action on the pitch.

        When was the last time eagles played a match with (flair is a big word) seriousness. Forget Sao tome matches. Those have proven to be one off results because 2026 world cup qualifiers, after the debacle of missing out on Qatar, if the draws were morning, definitely showed the progress of this hyped-but-shallow team.

        Unnamed club drubbing is like a hoax.

        • It’s just like saying Bayern beating Rotterdam 20-0 makes them a useless team.a win is a win ,in 2013 when we won afcon we started bad but at the end we still won the best thing to do is support the team
