    E no go pass all this their LESOTHO na em we go dey the same GROUP with.lol.And there u go see their FAV OSIMHEN dey SCORE FIVE GOALS.the next day him go find one LEGEND DISRESPECT becos him don arrive…..lol

  • I won’t be surprised when fans are still using calculator to check if Super Eagles will qualify for the nations cup despite the weak teams in the group.

  • We should concentrate on afcon 2025.

    It’s just that the players, the coaches and nff are almost destroying my interest in this team.

    Recent nonesense from all of them have turned off my interest.

    Players do whatever they like and abuse anybody because they have temporary money and fame.

    Coaches descend so low to take bribe and use their influence to bring sun standard players into the team.

    Nff foolishly come on the payroll of rich players. The reason why some players can do whatever they like and get away with it.

    The reason why some players will never get called up no matter how good they are in Europe.

    This Oshimen finidi issue has thrown up many of these facts again.

    The reason the team has not really fulfilled potential over the years.

    Really it’s a waste of time killing yourself to support the team with all these nonesense.

    • You said it all. This Osimhen Finidi outburst really exposed the rubbish that’s going on in Nigeria football that’s generating the bad results from men football in the country.

    Guys… watch below how Thiery Henry is seen receiving players to the French U-23 Football National Team in camp preparation for the 2024 Paris Olympic games… after seeing how these players are treated, it is clear why no football player born abroad will ever look the way of Nigeria… the pomp and camaraderie is just on another level. Let’s focus on talents back home to encourage and nurture to represent Nigeria… I am blown away… these foreign borns who are tight with their game and options will never look our way… sorry!

    Nigeria has really offended God for always peaching Super Eagle vs Benin Republic which is now being managed by our former Oga Rohr. Did he not just show us that he alone knows how to beat the hell out of us from the World Cup? Now they don’t want Nigeria to go the next AFCON by demanding that we play again against the one who knows how to beat us thereby eliminating Nigeria from the next AFCON. Lord, what have Nigeria done?
    Everybody knows that, so long as our former Oga is with Benin Republic, we are their wife. I will say this. If only NFF did not fire our experienced manager Rohr the way they did. It will never end well with omo9ja and his cohorts who variously campaigned for his underserving sacking from his illustrious job he was doing for Nigeria.
    If only the NFF had listen to a wonderful fan, a patriot, brilliant, and highly learnt Dr Drey, Nigeria would not never be in this very poor and embarrassing state of affairs.
