    “We know what we have to do” Those words sounds creepy!nervy!I feel uncomfortable hearing those words,I believe many on here will feel the same.
    In modern football you never know the plan of your opponents until the match day.Teams with less pedigree in some cases pull unbelievable victories against top sides with a carefully mapped out plan.
    However,it’s a game of wits by two coaches.A coach with better players and better tactics has a great chance of winning,but if the same coach lacked the necessary tactical savvy,I’m afraid his better wards may count for nothing and that’s how upset comes in.
    I hope that’s not the case with the super eagles.
    Interestingly,we have players in great form at the moment.Players that will send chills down the spine of our opponents in Cotonou.
    I could only see victory on the 27th of April.

    Where in this story did Dussuyer implies they will shock Super Eagles? CSN are falling our hands with inappropriate headlines. All he said is simply not different from what GR said but this useless and lazy CSN reporters will twist their words to create false sensationalism to suit their purpose

      @Dr Banks

      This is top secret. I don’t want to get into trouble. The coach spoke in French. Know what? Adeboye Amosu skipped French classes in high school. One day he was caught jumping out the window when the tutor entered the class.

    Perhaps….. ‘black magic’ to their rescue

  • It is all mind game and I don’t think that the Beninoise coach will be moved by it.GR should be unpredictable with the way he sets up his team even if he is going to use his regulars.
    Aina/Ebuehi Leon Ekong Zaidu/Aina
    Aribo Chukwueze Iwobi
    Osimhen Iheanacho
    They can transit from 442 to 343 to 352 to 451 to 433 to 4411 (in any order depending on how the game goes).Absence of Kalu,Umar and Simon casts doubt over the SE’s bench.
    Feel free to criticize MY team list

  • OK noted. But one thing u don’t know…..
