  • Don’t promise what you can’t fulfill, because you got lucky last time doesn’t mean it would happen again. This one belong to Nigeria

      Looking at his current squad’s rich depth and strength, plus the current trophy-winning momentum from the Arab Cup, you just can’t fault the man’s assertions, he can dare to believe a second time, never write them off…that’s a star-studded team man

      • @Richie there was no reason for Nigeria to fear Algeria. Because had we assembled right Algeria is no Match for Nigeria but thanks to Pinnick Algeria are Miles ahead of Nigeria in this one. Look at Algeria’s Captain Riyad Mahrez Manchester City Star. Nigerias Captain Finished Musa playing in a lowe4ly club with and warming the Bench. And Some people here are telling Mahrez he should not promise. In short some Nigerians are deluded. Let me have you knw with this squad Nigeria is parading if Algeria meet Nigeria we will collect nothing less than 4. PERIOD!!!!!!!!!!!. When if Corruption was not the nature of the game here in Naija, Algeria should be the ones fearing us. No shaking Pinnick and Nigerian Leaders carry go your people nor get sense so Carry Go.

        @Richie you for no even talk to this Nigger sef

          @Ugo Iwunze— Y’know, each time I remember Onyekuru lying on the grass, shortly before Mahrez took that heartbreaking final free kick @ the Semi Final in 2019, plus the jittery Akpeyi in goal, I just giggle within me and shake my head in disappointment….well, here we are again; both men are currently in Cameroon! Déjà vu, Lol

          It is well……come what may, I’d still wish them all the best, no hating 🙂

          You must be joking @Richie @ugo tell me the stars that Algeria has that Nigeria doesn’t have . Apart from Mayrez who else . We have players in Leicester, Venezia Torino, Porto, German league Scottish league French league and yet you keep saying Algeria if that big head coach had done the necessary Nigeria should have beaten them and play at the final.

        Well said mate

  • Riyad Mahrez I do not Doubt you at this tournament you are the favourites along with Senegal by a Mile..

  • Bobo Colorado Springs 4 months ago

    How do you all know Algeria will beat Sierra leone. Right now is still 0-0 between Senegal and Zimbabwe (80 mins).

    • Richie 4 months ago

      Undeserved penalty at the death…..Mané pokes it in! 1-0 FT

      What a DRAB showing from the Lions of Terranga

    Zimbabwe almost shock Senegal today. Senegal came to Cameroon to play big man football. They couldn’t breakdown a stubborn Zimbabwean defense in open play. Zimbabwe we’re just unlucky with that penalty. Senegal is missing some players agreed, but they look jaded. The midfield is very porous. Against a good side they may be exposed. Though it’s still early, but I don’t see them winning the cup. Did you guys notice most of Cisse’s back room staff and assistant are foreigners?? I think that’s how it should be in Africa. A local coach with ambition working in tandem with technically savvy foreign assistant.

      Na wa for this Afcon ooo.
      Out of 5 goals so far, 3 have come from the penalty spot.
      Zimbabwe were unfortunate.
      Senegal like to sit back, draw you in, and hit you on the counter. Zimbabwe were very disciplined at the back, and this made it difficult for Senegal to create chances from open play. That’s the key to beating this Senegal side. Defensive discipline. DO NOT COMMIT TOO MANY MEN FORWARD.
      Zimbabwe almost got a result today by being defensively aware. Against more capable sides, Senegal will struggle, unless they raise their game.

    Senegal always have to rely on their big boys in Afcon games, and that’s why their cabinet is empty. I don’t see them winning this tournament. A more discipline side will kick them out. I see this tournament been won by an all-around disciplined and more organized team. I would say Algeria but let’s see them play first. I really want to see the passion in the eyes of the super eagles tomorrow. If they play like Ghana today, we go seriously drag them. With that play play wey dem dey play for camp.

    Super Eagles played ▶️ with composure, flair, passion, dedication, determination and urgency. Let’s appreciate them for putting a great shift yesterday.

    One thing I know is that it will be difficult for N African to snatch the cup in west Africa

  • Nigeria coach got his selection right yesterday, 1st 11 on merit, no paddy paddy, no bribery. It’s been a while I had seen 1st 11 that is very competitive and dedicated like that.
