  • That is football you don’t expect victory always

    Paul Onuachu and Mukaru should go to France League or Spainish, Italia league so that they will toughing they game

  • Sasiq umar is the man of the moment, watch his video clips. Paul may be the highest goal scoring super eagles player presently but his is playing in a lower league.
    If Almeria can get promoted to the first division in spain, you will see that sadiq is a more effective striker.
    I wish them all the best though.

      Sadiq has got definitely everything rohr will be needing in a striker, if onyekuru can be making stand by list then umar’s time would surely come.
      the problem with him and olayinka is that they tend to somehow go off the radar, performance wise,when it matters most  (during international call up month).

  • I think rohr is confused when it comes to picking players and choosing formation. In the last world cup we had a good first 11 and an average bench. Rohr had 2 formations which we used and everyone felt after the world cup we would improve on this.
    Then the nations cup occurred and again we improved formation wise and people expected that after that we would get better but suddenly even with influx of quality players the team doesn’t seem to find its rhythm and certain positions are lacking fluidity. Our defense isnt yet ok despite having about 10 defenders, no good defensive midfielder without ndidi, the creative midfielder still needs alot of work, and the wingers are not doing their jobs in terms of creating enough goal scoring opportunities.
    Our attack seems to favour one striker (osimhen) others are yet to gel with the team. So I wonder when will the team get it right. Are we going backwards or forward?

      I honestly don’t your point bro… If you were the coach what would you have done with the kind of players at your disposal? Lemme guess, win the world cup?

      They will play out a draw in this game… we just unintelligently plaid into their hands. We should have just drawn against Ghana atleast…
