BRILLIANT:  How Super Eagles Players Rated Vs Lesotho

Completesports.com’s ADEBOYE AMOSU rates the Super Eagles after their impressive performance in Tuesday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier 3-0 win against Lesotho in Lagos …

FRANCIS UZOHO 7/10

Got the nod ahead of Maduka Okoye in goal and proved equal to the task with a fantastic save in the first half. Organised his defence well and was good with his ball distribution.

TYRONNE EBUEHI 7/10

The right-back put up a lively performance in the game. Certainly a good choice for the position.

LEON BALOGUN 7/10

Gave the ball away cheaply thrice early in the game, but to his credit, the centre-back battled back to post an above average performance.

WILLIAM TROOST–EKONG 7/10

Solid as ever even though he was cautioned in the first half for a rash challenge on an opponent.

ZAIDU SANUSI 6/10

Another impressive performance from the FC Porto left-back. He was replaced by Jamilu Collins early in the second half after copping an injury.

WILFRED NDIDI 8/10

Hardly put a foot wrong in the game. Showed his class as one of the best midfielders in the world at the moment.

OGHENEKARO ETEBO 7/10

Capped a brilliant performance with a goal. The bulky player ran the midfield with Wilfred Ndidi.

ALEX IWOBI 7/10

Came close to scoring with a couple of long range shots. He was replaced by Henry Onyekuru in the 74th minute.

SAMUEL CHUKWUEZE 7/10

Fizzled out a bit after a good start to the game. He was a thorn in the flesh of the Lesotho defenders especially in the first half. Seems too eager to score.

KELECHI IHEANACHO 7/10

Was lively all through. Ahmed Musa took his place four minutes from time.

VICTOR OSIMHEN 9/10

The Napoli striker scored once and also recorded an assist. He was unlucky not to get one or two more.

SUBSTITUTES

JAMILU COLLINS 6/10

Performed well after replacing injured Zaidu Sanusi in the second half.

PAUL ONUACHU 6/10

The forward scored for the second consecutive game. Showed he could also score with his leg and not just the head.

HENRY ONYEKURU

A perfect assist for Paul Onuachu’s goal. A good performance off the bench from the Galatasaray man.

AHMED MUSA

    Osimhen’s goal was assisted by Kelechi Iheanacho, and not Ndidi.
    Please take note

     
    • Chima E Samuels 4 months ago

      Leave CS i think they purposely don’t want to credit Kele as much as he deserves forgetting an assist is not a fluke. Etebo is the real deal let his management source him a better club and we shall sing his name to high heaven.

       
  • Henceforth anybody wey insult GR Amadioha go visit that person including me,weldone boys we can only get better

     
  • This is surely one of the weakest AFCON qualifying group the SE have been in within the last 20 years.

    While I congratulate the boys and their coaches, there is nothing much here to celebrate.

    We wait for the tournament proper to meet our equals, then we know how much coach Rho has improved from the blunders of 2018 world cup and the loss to Algeria in the last AFCON.

        Last time i checked, The three consecutive times we painfully got kicked out of afcon,Cameroun. Ghana Senegal, ivory coast etc were not in the sane group as us. We were paired against very lowly placed countries Like guinea, Rwanda, Niger, Sudan and still, we couldn’t even qualify let alon with a game to spare. Many thought at the time that it was gonna be an easy ride but the reverse was the case. However, Speaking about tough teams, we found ourselves in one of the toughest groups of the previous afcon qualifiers at the time. We had Zambia, Algeria and south africa to contend with and you know what, we qualified with a game to spare to the surprise of many who never gave us a chance bcs of where we were just coming from after a very painful sojourn in the wilderness. We’ve had and seen it all, So what’s your point?????We are not celebrating but we are happy that we have qualified and the team (including the coach) in its entirety deserve to be commended. Its been made to look easy just as before bcs of the class of coach we have at the moment. Appreciate good things and good things would come to you. Don’t be a miserable pauper and wizard at the same time.

         
        • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

          Dont mind them….LMAO. Rohr has made things easy now…LMAO. The same rohr they talk trash about. Qualifications are now with games to spare. Madagascar doesnt need to defeat Boca Juniors again and Boston Celtics draw Serbia before we qualify. We dont need to promise $5000 for every goal that will be score and $30k for every player anymore. Even draws now look like losses….LMAO. Drunkard don drink pammy forget in sorrows, so the group automatically becomes the weakest…..LMAO.

           
        • I agree with you, but that was a world cup qualifier with: Zambia, Algeria, Cameron, who are all African champions.G For was not given any Chance but he surprised everyone apart from my self because l have always believed in him and the team from the time he took over

           
    • U are an idiot

       
    • Chima E Samuels 4 months ago

      CJ give credits when deserved, yesterday even before the game started i saw a solid team then i know knew instantly that Rohr has improved. I didn’t see the cattlemen and eastern chiefs in the line up so kudos to Rohr he should keep it up. Nigeria is a favorite for the afcon.

       
  • SADIQ UMAR WILL ALWAYS BE AN OPTION IN THE SUPER EAGLES EVEN THOUGH HE DIDN’T GET HIS CHANCE TO PLAY IN THIS TWO GAMES, HE IS STILL A QUALITY PLAYER. WHILE OSIMHEN AND ONUACHU WERE BUSY SCORING FOR THE SUPER EAGLES, HE WAS BUSY SCORING FOR HIS CLUB, ALMERIA ABOUT THE SAME TIME NIGERIA WAS PLAYING LESOTHO, ALMERIA WERE ALSO PLAYING AND BIG NUMBER 9 SCORED AS WELL. IM HAPPY THAT THE PRESSURE AND CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM PAUL HAS FACED HAS ENERGIZED HIM TO START SCORING GOALS FOR THE NATIONAL TEAM, BUT I ADVISE HIM TO MAINTAIN THIS RUN OF FORM BECAUSE NEXT TIME AROUND HE WILL HAVE NOT ONLY OSIMHEN AND IHEANACHO TO CONTEND WITH BUT SADIQ UMAR AS WELL.

  • JimmyBall 4 months ago

    This game was a dead rubber and Mr Rohr could not start a completely new team… Lesotho with all due respect can’t even play Ajegule 11. Yet the coach started regular players… One expected he would have started Awaziem, Ajayi,shehu, Iwuala and other players including giving John Noble atleast 30minutes… He started the usual players to my utter dismay and even brought in an out-of-sorts Ahmed Musa even… I did not even expect Alex Iwobi to start… Honestly our qualifying group was the weakest of all and there was really never any solid competition against us… I still do believe we will never win anything with Rohr, we will meet out equals in AFCON next year and then our real strength and Coach Rohrs tactical savviness will really be tested… Onuachu showed he is a fantastistic footballer… from the body language of Rohr, he would not even want to invite the likes of lookman, Olayinka and Tosin Adarabioyo because these guys will easily displace his loyal players on purely footballing reasons… We have more than capable players, whether we have a coach with the right mentality or craft for winning tournaments is what to me is suspect.

            I commend the Super Eagles and their coach.

             
    • Coachie 4 months ago

      @JimmyBall,
      I am always amazed the way you talk at times. Are you in the mind of Rorh because you seem to be talking like he has already confided in you about what his plans are with the Super Eagles. Our next set of matches are W/Cup qualifiers against Liberia and CAR in May/June and no international break for friendlies before then. So, if you were the coach you would have started a completely different team when you have the opportunity to further achieve some blending within your regulars. Senegal, Morocco, Algeria et’al, they all played their regulars to achieve better understanding and cohesion.
      Meanwhile, aside a capable replacement or competition for Alex Iwobi in the creative department (attacking midfield role), we definitely and urgently need a solid back-up for Wilfred Ndidi, as it is right now, we don’t have any defensive midfielder of his quality or any where near his standard.

       
      • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

        That one talks before thinking. Leave him alone let him continue rambling over nothing as always. we are used to it…LMAO. The senile PE teacher and mechanic never stops shoving humble pies down his and people of his like’s throats…..LMAO. 5 changes from the previous XI isnt good enough. A completely different XI must play today and another set of XI the next match.

         
      • JimmyBall 4 months ago

        Did you try Shehu Abdullah and he is not good? He was even the one that screened our defence properly against Sierra Leone in the second leg… Etebos performance minus the fluke goal was so very poor, let us be truthful. Our group was weak… You have no one other than Ndidi you said but then I ask, what is Abdullahi Shehu doing on bench for the duration of two games? Aribo had been given so much chances but always never convinces against African opposition… With lookman, Olise, Ejaria in some people must be pushed out.

         
        • Mr. Nice 4 months ago

          What makes you believe that lookman, olise & ejaria will adjust to Africa style of play since Aribo has not been able to adjust to Africa style of play, is it difficult to reason with your brain or you’re just deliberately mischievous?

           
      • Greenturf 4 months ago

        @Coachie, Abdullahi Shehu will play the role of Ndidi comfortably.Its a shame fans fails to see his potentials in the midfield.The few times he played that role he was a class.I understand because he plays in Cyprus he will never be considered good enough to be a super eagles!Apparently,Shehu is as good as any of the midfielders that started today’s game if not better.
        I look at football without being sentimental.I assess players purely from what I see of them,their potentials,qualities I careless what club you play for if you are good you are good and if he wasn’t good enough he wouldn’t make the list.He would get his chance and I’m sure he would take it.Rohr knows he has a quality sub for Ndidi in Shehu Abdullahi so do not stress about a like to like player for Ndidi as we have a Shehu Abdullahi solid enough in that role as well could display an Etebo who only started ahead of Shehu because he has played that role alongside Wilfred Ndidi in a while now.
        However,there are lots of games coming up and things would take shape naturally the team would pick itself.

         
        • I agree with you, but that was a world cup qualifier with: Zambia, Algeria, Cameron, who are all African champions.G For was not given any Chance but he surprised everyone apart from my self because l have always believed in him and the team from the time he took overb

           
          • @Nnado nope I was referring to recent games.Then he was deployed as a right back

             
      • Presh 4 months ago

        You on point mate. Legendary.

         
        • Dr.Drey 4 months ago

          Local legendary….you are just one of the pigs were talking about earlier.

           
    • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

      Are you done….LMAO. I guess we also had a weak group when we were paired with Cameroon, Zambia and Algeria and still qualified unbeaten, with games to spare and even a 3 point deduction…..LMAO. Those teams were not our equals then….LMAO. The years when we missed 3 out of 4 Afcons in a space of 5 years with “tactical savvy” coaches we must have had our equals like Brazil, Germany and Mexico in our groups….LMAO.

      The last time I checked we only didnt get to the final of the last AFCON via an own goal and a spectacular last kick from a world renowned specialist (net individual superiority in personnel)….but went on to defeat the 2nd best team in Africa, Tunisia, in the losers’ final with same Rohr as coach…so I wonder what you mean by “Rohr’s tactical savviness being tested when we meet our equals…”. LMAO. All those we defeated enroute the losers’ final in 2019 were our last borns….??LMAO

      They have run out of what to use against the coach, it is now “the group is weak”… “…it was by sheer determination of the players….” LMAO.

      Some of you guys really need to listen to yourselves and feel the disgust in your own vomits. LMAO.

      Go and sack the coach and replace him because he chose to use Lesotho game as dress rehearsal for his next WCQ. Rohr always must do your bidding….he must vall up your favored players……you drafted the contract that engaged him as SE coach….LMAO

       
      • Kingsley 4 months ago

        Spare us all the noise about qualifying with games to spare and why didn’t they qualify 3 times in a roll. The tournament proper why una no win am since you defeated all the top teams in the qualifiers. Rubbish.

          • Kingsley 4 months ago

            Carry your dictionary to figure out what I typed. All your noise about qualifying with game spared, what did it get us. Absolutely nothing, world cup isn’t it at the group stage we were eliminated. Nations cup did we get to the final. So please stop wasting your time ranting about qualifying with games spared. At Stephen Keshi won us the cup, and went to 2nd round.

             
        • Dennis 4 months ago

          When super eagles won the cup in 2013,we failed to qualify for the next two editions despite playing lowly ranked teams. Rorh stepped in and qualified us for the last edition in which we came 3rd and also qualified us for the World Cup easily. We’ve just qualified for another edition and are favourites to win it. Between the last edition till now, rorh would have gotten more experience and I believe we will do better. There are no easy team anymore. Sudan defeated South Africa while eswatini(swaziland) played a 1-1 draw against Senegal in Dakar, with Senegal equalizing in the 94th minute. Please cut this team some slack

    • Oakfield 4 months ago

      The weed you’re smoking is expired, u need to change the source asap to forestall unpleasant circumstances. Are u for real @jimmyjbball????, we haven’t gotten out of the Madagascar shame ( a main refence point of a bunch of miserables like omo9ja and co whenever they want to castigate the coach). If the coach ever tried fielding a fringe team and lost, you’d be the first to come and crucify the coach for losing a match whilst using a fringe team even though it was a dead rubber game. We know your types. It doesn’t matter if the coach used his first team or not, all we know is that we finished tops of the group with 2 games to spare without losing a match. Our FIFA rankings have already gotten a boost as a result. Go and ask Senegal how the cookie really crumbles when they met Eswatini ( a country like lesoto) today during the qualifiers.

       
  • Presh 4 months ago

    For me my man of the match is Tyronne. I observed and loved his overlapping, our forward weren’t actually complimenting his pattern of play at the right hand side, I honestly enjoyed his style, reminds me of how Babayaro overlaps forward. He was like the team bus driver and think he’s my man of the match.

     
    • Kenneth 4 months ago

      Same choice. He was excellent at that position. Hope they will not use politics not to take him to Cameroon

       
  • Dr Banks 4 months ago

    Nawa for you o @JimmyBall, seems you’re now in Omo9ja’s corner. Even Omo9ja himself has now turned to Omogidi (good boy). 
    If you say this is the weakest group, what do you call Senegal’s group or Cote D’ivoire, Morocco, Egypt’s group? Eswatini just played 1:1 draw with Senegal, Comoros beat Egypt in the 1st leg in 2019 and qualified alongside Egypt, Mauritania qualified alongside Morocco etc.
    I like you my guy but please don’t become a party pooper or better still an ingrate, lets appreciate the performance of the guys and the coaches, not forgetting the role of Amaju Pinnic too.
    When we were castigating Pinnic for making the guys travel by waterways, little did we know that it will turn out to be a blessing in disguise as it made it easy for them to transport Iwobi back to Lagos while the match was still on, otherwise Iwobi would’ve been held back in Benin for a mandatory 10 day quarantine 

     
  • JimmyBall 4 months ago

    Lookman and Ejaria should be our candidate for no 10 now, Iwobi cannot do it, so let’s not mention him at all. Iwobi, Kalu and Chukwueze should battle for two slots on Right Wing, let Iwobi go and learn how to deliver a good cross and play-in decisive through balls from the right wing if he wants to compete Kalu and Chukwueze on that flank, there is no more space for him anywhere through the middle, Moses Simon and Peter Olayinka should be glued to the left wing, lookman must not be wasted on any flank with his intelligence and ballwork, lookman, Ejaria should go in around central attacking midfield… Collins and Zaidu natural left backs, Ola Aina and Ebuehi at RB, Ekong, Balogun, Awaziem, Umeruo, Adarabioyo (when he agrees to join us), Torunarigha, Akpoguma should vie for 5 centre back spot… Mind you, I will not pick Akpoguma in my central defence options… he is not better than those we have including Awaziem… If we have all the switches we hope for… Central defence should be Torunarigha, Balogun, Ekong, Tosin and Awaziem…. Umeruo is past his useful prime. Ajayi Semi should be axed, likewise Akpoguma and Umeruo when we have all personnel and have qualified for World Cup… We need 3 top strikers… Osimhen, Paul and Sadiq are the best for now… The ship must not continue to ride with everyone.

     
    • Someone just advised you up there to change the source of your weed, it’s outdated

       
      • JimmyBall 4 months ago

        @DreyOla… Be frank with yourself it would have been exciting giving minutes to Abdullahi in place of Ndidi, Starting Iwuala in place of Chukwueze who was playing like Sunday Sunday Ranger… “Over-Carry” just to distaste. If we had ring a complete starting eleven even with John Noble… We would still have beaten those Lesotho weeping boys by atleast 2goals! So I should go and change weed because of that exciting tinkering? I won’t change my weed if doing that will stop making me comment without thinking futuristic for the sake of having a completely dependable 23man squad… If you only trust 13 to 15 squad members amongst 23, then people will be tempted to label a coach a mechanic like the legendary Joseph Dosu referred to Rohr Zagallo… Hahaha.

         
        • Kingsley 4 months ago

          Oga you don’t owe any of this pigs any explanation. They can rant all they want. Let’s wait till nations cup proper. At least they had the chance and blew it

           
          • JimmyBall 4 months ago

            @Kingsley my parley… Don’t mind them, when late coach Stephen Keshi (May His Soul Rest in Peace) was taking only about 15 good players to tournaments like Brazil 2014 and using the remaining slots to cashout… it’s these same ones here heckling me that were calling Keshi a businessman for compromising squad places with average players who may have paid… a squad of 23 should be players at the same level… now if you do not give scarce opportunities to test those you trust less but still continue to name in squad list… in the event of eventualities like injury to one like Ndidi, Balogun, Ekong, and Osimhen what do you do going into competitive tournaments?

             
          • Kingsley 4 months ago

            You are a pig. Your entire family live in a swine. Anmimal!!!

             
        • You are right. It would have been exciting if the coach fielded those players. But the problem is that if we lost after fielding those players, you will be one of the people who will cry and blame the coach here.
          To be honest with you, I expect more from you when it comes to football analysis. For instance, I actually expected you as a former football maestro to understand the role Iwobi played for us yesterday. The role he played yesterday was a bit different from what he had been playing for us in the past. And he tried, despite his recent travail.

          Just the other day, I saw where you said a full back can play central defence as long as he is tall. That’s wrong. Height is definitely not one of the determinant factors for a full back to succeed in central defence.
          What we (including me) have to learn is that when we are not sure about something, it is either we don’t say it or if we must say it, we should ensure that we indicate we are not too sure about the claim

           
          • JimmyBall 4 months ago

            @Ocherome Mma… Even Jay Jay Okocha has said of his nephew Iwobi that he does not have the courage to play and be assertive in a No. 10 role… Man average James Rodriguez that couldn’t quite cut it at Madrid and Munich is even the one displacing Iwobi because our guy does not have the heart to stamp his foot properly around Central midfield. Central defence regarding a fullback stepping into the role in a 3man defence does not mean the players are always huddled in the middle contesting headers and deadballs against attackers for 90minures… My question to you is that, if an Ola Aina can play left centre back in a 3man defence, it means he play also right centre back in a 3man defence… So what makes think Ebuehi cannot also play the RCB(right centre back) in the same setup as Aina? Football is more sense and technics than muscle… otherwise African for the win every worldcup especially big and usually tall Senegalese mandingos… Lol. A good defender should be able to play anywhere across the back four… I will see what will happen when Lookman, Adarabioyo, Sadiq and Ejaria are fully with us in camp… the debate will become really interesting

             
    • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

      You are using the word “natural”….LMAO. I thought you claimed there is nothing like natural position in football….LMAO. I thought you claimed all professional footballers can play all positions on the pitch. How did you finally all of a sudden come to the conclusion now that some players are not fit for some positions…..LMAO. All of a sudden some players should stick to certain positions while others stick to other positions. Your eye don dey clear small small kwanu…?? LMAO. I was waiting patiently for a day when you will give us another balon d’grammy line up from your archives (as one who played at the highest level) with onuachu featuring at left back, since all professional footballers can play any position on the field…..LMAO. Football really sabi in people. I cant stop laughing.

       
      • Eldridge Cleaver 4 months ago

        You are such a clown you this Dr Drey.. Haha hahaha! I don laff tire. Onuachu at left fullback!! Hahaha! Which Onuachu, the one that plays in Kutuwenji or the that plays in Kaura Namoda? Hahahaha! Heavenly father…

         
        • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

          My brother, anybody that can place Peter Olayinka at left wing back and Chuwueze at right wing back in one formation can as well put Onuachu at left back. Na dem tell us say natural position nor dey football, say as far as you be footballer, coach fit dump you anywhere for field and you go deliver 10/10…..LMAO

           
      • JimmyBall 4 months ago

        @Dr.Drey… I borrowed your favorite word “natural” in reference to the fact that we all know an Ola Aina is very comfortable at left back… Awaziem also being comfortable at Right Back but has repeatedly said he prefers centre back and has been playing there at club for sometime now… How did you see a stable and intelligent play from Ebuehi today? Petite frame packed with ball-playing super intelligence… did he look like one to be fazed in RCB role in a 3man defence? A suggestion you went to war with me for… football no be muscle fight, so Ebuehi does
        not need unnecessary muscle mass!

         
      • JimmyBall 4 months ago

        @Dr.Drey… Onuachu has proven to be so reliable given belief from fans that I would not mind playing him in your suggested left full back also… hahahaha. Even after scoring against Benin Republic you said if he likes let him score 50goals in Belgium, he will still be fringe in Super Eagles… I believe it’s because of your hammer on that guy that he has refused to stop scoring… Paulo Carry go!True fans dey your back… what a cat with 9lives! From “standby” list to “Standfirm” in attack… See intelligent goal just like against Egypt in 2019! Ball know im people… Kpomkwem!

         
  • Next is world cup qualifications. Eagles in grp that looks easy on paper .cape Verde Liberia and central Africa Republic. . Cape Verde will win all their home and away games. Against team like CAR and Liberia. Making 12points. Nigeria may slip off if they are not serious. Against Liberia or CAR. Away. ….danger. Cape Verde will hope for draw against Nigeria home or away. Like on 14points. Can eagles withstand this pressure. .time will tell . This a secret. I remember Angola Rwanda scentrio in 2016 wcup qualifications.

     
    • Chima E Samuels 4 months ago

      Yes Cape are very serious treat having defeated the out of form Cameroon and also tamed Mozambique away from, they posses a great threat upfront with the likes of mendes and have a very solid coach. But if Nigeria has a full house and keep doing things right we will walk over all of them.

       
  • Ayphillydegreat 4 months ago

    I like the fact that we kept 3 straight clean sheets so far. From all indications this team is beginning to take shape. The next stop is WorldCup qualifiers starting from May/June. Going forward Iheanacho and Osimhen needs to understand each other more. That attacking option will come good during the WorldCup qualifiers and the AFCON proper. We do have more options upfront in Onuachu and Sadiq Umar. Unfortunately, one of them will have to make way. That’s why Onuachus performance during this window is very vital to his SuperEagles career. Baring any monumental loss of form or injury Osimhen and Iheanacho should be our plan A in attack.

    On the wings I like Iwobi on the left and Chukwueze on the right. However, Simon Moses and Samuel Kalu are also viable options to keep Iwobi and Chukwueze on their toes. With an Olayinka, Iwula, Moffi on the outside looking in. In the midfield from what I saw yesterday I think I’ll prefer Etebo ahead of Aribo to play with Ndidi in that midfield. His tenacity and energy is vital for this team. I might be forced to play all 3 together. We need a ball playing midfielder who can create something out of nothing. That’s why I can’t wait for Olise to be finally cleared to play against Liberia and Central African Republic.

    Senegal couldn’t beat Eswatini in Dakar so I wonder what the fuse is about from some sections of fans. Well everyone with their own opinions. The fact remains that Gernot Rohr has won more away qualifiers than any other coach in SuoerEagles history and have gone a step further to qualify for a major tournament with 2 games to spare. I don’t know about those who are stuck on and continue to be enemies of progress, as far I know SuperEagles will be one of the Favorites to clinch the trophy in Cameroon. When we get to the bridge we will cross it. For now we want to concentrate on our first two games of the WorldCup qualifiers. Liberia and Central African Republic beckons.

    Those games will be more like the two games we just played against Benin and Lesotho and SuperEagles didn’t disappoint. I hope they keep this momentum going. We didn’t win any match in 2020, but we’ve begun 2021 with two straight victories and clean sheets. Our wingbacks are the most improved since GR tenure and I’m surprised no one is even talking about it. Instead of crying about inviting this and that while they’ve been criticizing the gaffer for not discovering better full backs. Now we have an avalanche of wingbacks to choose from. Ebuehi, Aina, Collins, Sanusi, Ehizibue, Bassey and the likes give us more options particularly when deploying a 3 man central defense system.

      God bless you @ Aphillydegreat. Very sensible write-up devoid of sentiment. Just the type you will sacrifice your very useful time to read.

       
      • Ayphillydegreat 4 months ago

        Thanks @Glory. Always a pleasure. Let them continue to cry about qualifying from a weak group. When the same gaffer qualified from a group that has Cameroon, Algeria and Zambia without losing a match despite 3 points reduction they were still crying so I’m not surprised by their new moniker. What I’m looking forward to is a SuperEagles team heading towards the glory days. Cameroon here we come.

      @Aypilly, great write up i agree,,,, Etebo,Umar and Iheanacho addition spices your write up Nigeria is beginning to create a solid bench as well so when Ovie and Olise comes it will be more solid……Just that i have a feeling Olise used us to get France attention because it doesn’t feel right about some passport rumors. Lets be real here.

    World cup qualifier is in June 2 months from now and the boys are looking good.

    My only issues with the team is getting a suitable replacement for ndidi, shehu is good but not in the class of ndidi, if ndidi gets injured we would be in serious trouble which was evident in our last games against Sierra Leone and those friendlies too.

    Another headache is a good replacement for iwobi, we all saw how the team lacked creativity against Benin in his absence. But with the coming of ejarie, olise and look man ( I think they should be ready by June) we can have good cover for iwobi.

    In all this team is good

     
    • JimmyBall 4 months ago

      @Ololo… how do you know Abdullahi can’t perform up to Ndidi when you hardly try him even when opportunity demands? He did a good job in the return against Sierra Leone that one would think he deserves at least 35 minutes in these last two games… He never got involved even though the tie was one with inconsequential result… The game against Lesotho presented a glorious opportunity to test him with very low risk levels on the team’s qualifying position… It made no sense not to have tested him giving that Musa who is inactive was involved… I do not know what Musa being thrown in served?

       
    • Greenturf 4 months ago

      @Ololo you are not being fair to Shehu Abdullahi who was the best midfielder despite coming in as a second half substitute to restore calm to a midfield that was everywhere in Freetown.
      Shehu Abdullahi will play that role as good as Ndidi because he plays in Cyprus his performance will never receive the plaudits it deserves from Nigerian fans!

    someone who calls himself a fan of super eagles already writing off the team even before the start of qualifiers…….questioning whether his supposed team could withstand weaker opponents…….disgusting comments like these can only attract insults from true fans……pessimists rarely make progress…..imagine another idiot refering to super eagles group as weakest after qualification matches have been concluded,without losing a match…just to discredit the team….you guys can be very infuriating

     
    • JimmyBall 4 months ago

      @forumites… Here comes another one again. @Lanre… I commented without insulting anyone, those were just my opinions and not forced on anyone, now you are referring to me as an idiot again, so you are insulting me for just saying our group was weak? I won’t get baited into insulting you… but I can assure you I have capacity to reduce you on this forum if I get started on you… You do not like me does not mean you should insult me. Clap for yourself… in real life you cannot stand in my front and tell me that, so the likes of you can only play internet gangster… I pity you. The way you jump to rave and insult with ease already tells a lot about your personality… If living is frustrating on you, don’t take it out on people.

  • Kingston 4 months ago

    Just to be clear, I’m Kingston, different from @kingsley. We are two different people entirely which is evident in our opinions.
    Secondly, I find it disturbing that some people in this forum still have the time to reply @jimmyball comments at all. Someone that said playing defense is more difficult and technical than attack. You will think that a comment like this, devoid of any form of logic, will only come once from someone that claims he played football at the highest level, unfortunately he keeps proving us wrong. It was the same @jimmyball that said Rohr is a fluke, but while he (Jimmy) was asked to field a starting 11 of his choice he picked two fullbacks (known especially for their forward-attacking mindset) as centre backs in a three man defense ahead of natural centre backs such as omeruo, awaziem and ajayi, just to call three names. I refused to engage in that argument that time because I felt it was utterly useless. Placing natural wingers such as olayinka and chukwueze in a wingback position ahead tested and trusted fellows like Moses simon and Samuel kalu is beyond me. Yet, regardless of all this apparent blunders, @jimmyball still argues passionately that lookman will be a better no10 than iwobinho. Funny, but sad.
    I know it is his opinion, and I respect that. Though, we are at liberty to express our opinions, it will be disturbing to patriotic citizens when that opinion is marked with hatred and disgust, especially at the detriment of national honour.
    Come on guys, to claim that our qualifying group is weak just to validate a useless point is low and cheap, even for anyone. So I ask, the Benin republic that hasn’t been defeated at home for eight years is weak?! Truly speaking, progress produces a compliancy that alll leaders loathe – when people start to think that good results are cheap. Before this qualifiers against Benin and lestho, people where screaming that super eagles must come with nothing less than four points, that is, a draw and a win, because of the draws against Sierra Leone. Rohr did better, two wins, along with clean sheets. But of course, we were playing against weak opponents… Such shame.
    If there’s anything Rohr does well it is shoving his critic’s arguments down their throats. It was @omo 9ja and @jimmyball that claim that Rohr is too defensive by inviting 9 defenders. With 3 clean sheets in a role, I wonder what’s the complain. Not only that, super eagles boasts of the highest goal scorer in the qualifiers. As if that’s not enough to Rohr in silencing his critics, super eagles have the highest number of ‘goals for’ in the qualifiers, cracking up to 14. Which of your African guardiolas have achieved anything close to that feat?
    There are many more useless and pointless criticism thrown against Rohr that I don’t have the strength nor the stomach to dispel. Like the one yakubu all in the name of ‘ex-international’ spitted out. He said he doesn’t know where Rohr is picking our current crop of players. Like seriously??! Who would yakubu had picked? Players from Ukraine, Finland, Switzerland, etc. Ahead of players in the likes of ndidi, iheanacho and osimhen that are playing in the highest level. Do these people think at all?!
    When Rohr called okoye from 4th division in Germany, people complained. Now we have two solid goal keepers. Had it not been for Rohr’s quick reaction and insight into a player’s potential we won’t have a goal keeper who is currently trading in Netherlands. When Rohr kept his faith with Ighalo, people complained. We all know the end of this story. When Rohr kept calling Moses Simon ahead of their favorites such as chidera ejuke and junior ajayi, they complained. Lol! The former is struggling in Russia, the same league where Musa was hailed as a god. While the latter is yet to book a ticket out of Africa. Heard a team in Tunisia is bidding for him. So with all his performances, no scout from Europe could say anything of him. What about Moses Simon? Won his team best player for last season. Where is his team playing? In France! Rubbing shoulders with the likes of monaco and psg.
    Rohr, Rohr where are thou accusers? When super eagles couldn’t qualify for afcon three times out of four, they lamented. Now, super eagles are qualifying with games to spare, they are still crying, saying it is because we are facing weak teams. Humans… impossible to please.
    My biggest concern for super eagles right now is what will happen when Rohr leaves. We have never had it this good. Never! For the first time in a long while, we don’t need calculators. Super eagles is not Rohr’s birthright, I agree. I have been saying it, I will repeat it : my loyalty is to super eagles, the only football team I express loyalty to. The reason I support Rohr is because since his arrival, super eagles have progress. And that’s all I need.
    God bless super eagles!
    God bless Rohr and the players, each and every one of them!
    God bless loyal and sincere fans! (We know ourselves)
    Super Eagles all the way!!

     
    • JimmyBall 4 months ago

      @Kingston… Oga, at competitive levels, the job of defending js more involving and difficult than attack. A defender can easily train himself to do the job of an attacker but for an attacker to adapt himself to play defensive role is very difficult… defending is putting in real gritty work.

       
      • Ayphillydegreat 4 months ago

        JimmyBall that’s a blatant lie. It is easy for an attacker to become a defender than a defender becoming an attacker. In all my years watching football I’ve never seen a defender become an attacker. However, I’ve seen numerous attackers becoming great defenders. Kolo Toure, Joseph Yobo are some of top African defenders who began their careers as attackers. George Weah played mostly as a defender for Liberia during the qualifiers for 96 AFCON while he was a fierce attacker for AC Milan. You see sometimes I wonder who you think you’re debating with on here. If it’s your fellow owanbe group continue deceiving them. Not us.

         
        • JimmyBall 4 months ago

          @Ayphillydegreat… Understand me before you shoot. I have not said the act of goalscoring is easy. Then you may only have watched few football games… How about Gareth Bale from LFB to a proven attacker? In a wingback role, most fullbacks with attacking qualities are able to easily combine attacking on the flank to their defensive duties… go and do your work and check which position on the pitch comes regularly under pressure in football… especially from an opposing team that is good… You have not seen much defenders getting converted to attack because once you are a good defender, you are an asset for the team, an assurance that the goal area will be well protected against conceding cheap goals… no team wants to tamper with good defenders, as against attack that underperforming can easily be replaced. In football your defensive frailties have to be patched before you even think of attacking otherwise as you keep scoring you will be easily letting in goals at the rear also…

           
          • @Aphyllidegreat, pls don’t waste your time arguing with @Jimmyball, that guy does not know jackshit about football, all his claims of playing at highest level it’s a pure lie.

            Even we that play for our various schools self won’t be analyzing football like this not to talk of someone that played at the “highest” level.

            Did he know that in 2012 champion league semifinal, Chelsea vs Barca, Didier Drogba played over half of the match as a defender? (fullback) when john Terry and I think Ivanovic were given red card, same match our own obi Mikel played as central defender. How many times have we seen any coach drafting a defender as number 9?

             
          • JimmyBall 4 months ago

            @Ola… Lol. One of the usuals… where have you been? You have been hiding because Paul Onuachu scored in our games back to back abi… Lol. I never mentioned anything about drafting a striker to defence or drafting a defender to attack… for those who have some real English comprehension abilities… What my original post referenced mean is that… the job of a defender is more arduous than that of a striker… on the pitch they are the ones under the most pressure and the ones constantly being charged at… It’s easy for a defender to agree to play attack or midfield if asked to… but no striker or midfielder would like to be saddled with a task to play in defence… defence is gritty and involved so much attention, details and laborous work… defending is serious toil… @Ola,@Ayphillydegreat… hope this helps you understand the message better. I was not referring to recruiting one player who is already a top professional in his position of attack to defence or vice versa… I meant the work they put in a during games… any footballer who has played to some appreciable level knows what I am saying… It may be easy for those who have only been on the outside looking in, to understand my views on this. Be free to have yours…

          • JimmyBall 4 months ago

            I will say it again… defensive job in competitive football is more arduous and tasking than any other position on the pitch… the fullback positions are hellish to play and the central defence needs round the clock vigilance… what you can get away with in attack and midfield… in the defence you will be buried. I am talking from experience because I played all positions on the pitch exception of goalkeeping competitively… What some of you need to do is improve your English comprehension skills. Why do modern coaches ask attackers to start pressing (defensive duty) and track back immediately they loose possession? Why do modern coaches like Mourinho loathe lazy attackers and midfielders who can help chip-in with defensive work? It is simply because the workload of defenders is the heaviest on the pitch and what guarantees success of a team to a large extent… We may want to think Osimhen is not doing too well in Seria A, mostly because his team mates are scheming him out but the fact is that he went to a league where defence is prioritized and thick… we can all add the deference now. Who no play no go know and ball know im people. Ww are not talking computer game reality here but real football experience. Midfielders and attackers enjoy the game better they can pull tricks and schemes to get past players and if they fail… often no qualms. A defender cannot afford that luxury and must be alert and focused at all times… for midfielders and attackers, the game is an art, often fun… but for a defender, it is an arduous task of real toil, it is a war situation for a defender and fun is never his perception of what he has to be met with. Hahaha… ball know im people. One love…

      Kingston, lovely write up. I share your sentiments. Like you said, I feel some trepidation at the thought that Rohr will be leaving us soon. Indeed, we have never had it this good. Rohr is definitely not the best thing since sliced bread. He needs to improve in certain areas. However, even the most hard core hater now has no choice but to admit that our football is in a far better position in Rohr’s hands than it was before Rohr came. The man remains loved and appreciated by Nigeria football progressives. The best is yet to come!

       
  • Abdul handsy 4 months ago

    I want to use this medium to say a big congratulations to Gernot Rohr, amaju Melvin Pinnick, the super eagles and the well meaning Nigerian football aficionados. Congratulations to you all.

    Also, congratulations to everyone here in completesports comments section including myself. And as we are all looking forward to the world cup qualifying match proper, I am hoping that all hands we be on deck to scale through this first stanza and also, I hope the super eagles get a favourable draw in home and away tie thereafter.

    My suggestion going forward:

    The coaches and technical crew should look forward to capping new players to balance-up some departments in the team. The LB still calls for a capable deputy for the dependable Zaidu sanusi. Agu of werder Bremen comes to mind as well as bassey of rangers of Scotland. That guy is a beast and very reliable who is willing to do it for Nigeria anytime any day.

    In the midfield department, the super eagles still need a ball caryying players in the mode of oviemuno Ejaria, Ademola Lookman and Michael Olise.

    In the central defence too more hands are still needed as I am not comfortable with the level of confidence the stand-in captain (Ekong) always plays with. I don’t know if it is only me that notice that, Ekong is always jittery hence, super eagles need a more confidently good ball passing-a ball caryying defender in mode of Jordan Torunarigha. I will like Gernot Rohr to tryout the pairing of Balogun and awazi to see how they can befits each other as I don’t think that they both had ever played together….

    That’s my humble take as due for my observation this morning guys.
    Thanks.

    Give peace always if you want peace.

     
    • JimmyBall 4 months ago

      @Abdulhandsy… This your thoughtline is just my reason for saying against a team like Lesotho that never managed 3shots on goal against us, we could atleast have tried other squad members like Abdullahi Shehu who continues to be named in the squad but has hardly ever played more than 45minhtes in midfield… Ndidi is the keyman there, incase of injury do we rely on the scrappy job Etebo does always giving possessions easily away? If you don’t try deputies, incase of a rainy day what chmace do you have… Players to stand-in also need confidence and trials to be ready… We cannot afford only about 15 trusted squad members, we need the 23man to easily be able to do a good job whoever is called to play… This was just my suggestion and some folks were so eager to jump on my comment and start with insults… Well, we have qualified for nations cup and soon to start worldcup qualifiers which present to me sterner test and all will have to be ready…. everyone knows what Cape Verde with mostly Portugal-based professionals can do on any good day, countries like CAR and Liberia also present a great treat on their turf. We hope for the best… but we need ready 23 players and not 15 at anytime. One love… Some people are questioning the suggestion for lookman to be tried in a CAM role of 10. His qualities in the regard are obvious… A good ball-passer, intelligent, dribble, shooting, vision and endurance. The guy lookman Ademola is a natural born footballer… We have never had a player so complete like him in a long while. We have enough options on the wing but it’s obvious we are struggling with creativity still and assertion around the upper midfield location… Lookman has jumped ship with the Super Eagles… for a guy his quality, will anyone suggest he comes in be wasted on the wings because evidently he is a player to start games… with options like Moses Simon, Peter Olayinka, Chukwueze, Iwobi and even the often injured Kalu… We have enough weapons anywhere on the wings and do not need to waste a player like lookman Ademola there at all… that will mean sending one of those equally reliable guys to the bench. Samuel Chukwueze needs competition… I believe he should not be starting our games but be made an impact substitute from the bench in his usual role once opposition is tiring out. Why did we have to play Musa yesterday for professionalism sakes… We were already coasting 3 goals to nil, why does Coach Rohr has to wait till 84 minutes to make changes if he wants to really test other squad members? Again we need all 23 man at same level and not just a dependable 15… My take! One love… Please if you do not like my comments, it is okay to counter it by replying but please do that and restrain yourselves not to insult my person like @Lanre always does… I greet everyone!

    I’ve been following a lot of arguments here and I must say, People misinterpret the phrase “in my opinion” to be a side of their own truth in an objective debate.

    There are universal truths and facts that are not subject to your fragile egos and emotions so stop using “in my opinion” to glorify your ignorance.

    If today is 31st of March, today is 31st of March. This is a fact that cannot be contested by opinions. You cannot say, in your opinion, you believe that today is 2nd of June. That’s just a lie.

    If you believe that Ronaldo is better than Messi, then it is your opinion and should be respected. There are indices that you can use to back up your opinion.

    But when you come to say that in your opinion, that Nigeria had the weakest group in the just concluded qualifiers just to demean the contributions of the coaches especially Rhor out of so much hatred , that’s not an opinion, that’s you just being plain stupid and ignorant.(sorry for using those words)

    So,if you believe that Nigeria played in the weakest group of the Afcon qualifiers when there aren’t minnows in football today especially international football, you don’t have sense and this is not my opinion, this is a statement of fact.

Share their ranking and come back to backup claims that our group was not weak… Lesotho goalkeeper was diving and falling on his backs with legs open wide twice when he conceded like an imbecile learning summersaults in the sand… isn’t that funnily bizzare? Oga tidy yourself there…

        So it’s our fault that we played the likes of Benin Republic, Lesotho? We’ve been drawn against Zambia, Cameroun and Algeria but we still came out tops. When the qualifiers were made, the goal was to qualify and we did it with two games to spare. Gone are those days we made use of calculators and lots of permutations and combinations just to see our chances of succeeding. Now we do so effortlessly and you still aren’t satisfied? Our squad isn’t the finished product and there’s room for improvement but even the most biased of individuals can see that our football has improved, our FIFA ranking has improved and we do not hear the term ‘super chickens’anymore
        There’s room for improvement and I believe our coach is working on the teams deficiencies. Once again, there are no easy team in football. Germany lost to North macedonia and this is the first time of losing a qualifier since 2001.

  • GLORY 4 months ago

    Notice something about Onuachu in the two last games. Seems to have taken those critisicm positively, as a true professional. Truly commend him for that. You could clearly see a different Onuachu, aggressively attacking wide areas as much as he could. Not the old one that will marry an opposing defender waiting for crosses to come to his head. I honestly enjoyed his game/goals. Kudos to him. If he continues like this, especially coming on in the second half, when opposing defenders would have tired out running, he is gonna score goals aplenty for SE. That being said,one thing I will appreciate the gaffer to look into is finding an ultra defensive midfielder to screen the back 4, nullifying any counter attacking forays be it through the wings when our wing back go forward or the middle, when the team is pressing hard. Ndidi can do that excellently well but he seem to always wanna join the attack more often recently, while Etebo has never been a defensive midfielder but a central midfielder, both very good players. But both were running into each other yesterday and given misplaced passes early in the first half,and that, a really good team would have easily taken advantage of. But Rohr seemed to have cautioned them during first half break, hence we saw a more co-ordinated play in the second half. Maybe Shehu, Awaziem may have to try out that position or possibly look to find some really rugged one from the local league
    That area of the team sure needs fixing. Just imagine a case God forbid, Ndidi is not available.

     
    • Eldridge Cleaver 4 months ago

      @Glory, so Onuachu is no longer Owubokiri. Wonders shall never end. Success is a good thing as it wins over doubters. You claimed for long periods that Onuachu was not Super Eagles material now you are waxing lyricals about his performance. At least you know when to shift your goalpost. If indeed you have a keen eye for football as many claim, you would have seen Onuachu’s potentials before now. You don’t have to wait for him to start scoring goals before giving him the respect he deserves. Do you think Onuachu will appreciate the praise from you if he read many of the poisonous things people like you wrote about him earlier. The fact is that left to people like you, Onuachu would not have even been invited for these matches because YOU HAVE ALREADY WRITTEN HIM OFF AS NOT BEING GOOD ENOUGH FOR NIGERIA. Now that he has made you swallow your words, you praise him and say he is responding to constructive criticism. Laffing my head off. When you CONCLUDE EMPHATICALLY THAT A PLAYER IS NOT NATIONAL TEAM MATERIAL, THAT IS NOT CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM. That is demoralising and destructive criticism. If someone had said the same about Alexander the greater Iwobi, you would have jumped for their neck.
      You and others should just repent of your sins and ask for forgiveness.

       
      • JimmyBall 4 months ago

        @Eldridge Cleaver… Thank you for that point-and-kill revelation. Even when Onuachu came up with a poacher’s instinct to save the day in the first match against Benin Republic… @Dr.Drey still wrote him off that same day’s evening that if he likes he should score 50goals in Belgium… that he will forever remain paper-weight striker… Onuachu is stuffing it back into their mouths. When the guy scores a lot of people are never happy on this forum. Watchout how his hecklers change tone on this forum henceforth. In the times before now when Paulo was still finding his place in the squad and seem not to be doing enough to attract praise-singers… whenever he scores in his club, that same day he gets the most insult to his person on this forum from the likes of @GLORY,@Oakfield, @Dr.Drey and @Lanre… now they have a new song in their mouths albeit with distaste… hahaha. The only thing that makes their likes loathe Gernot Rohr is that the humble man understanding football keeps inviting a striker they have written off completely as not good enough. Even when they nested him on standby list… these same folks went eerie that, standby list was exactly where he belonged for now until he adapts his game to Super Eagles… they are now hiding behind curtains searching for new lines and cursing Paul Onuachu in silence and muffled tones… according to one strong critic, whenever
        Onuachu enters the field the whole attack collapses… Hahaha. Ball know im people joor!

      • GLORY 4 months ago

        @ Eldridge, in life the only thing that is constant is change. Whilst I am not an ego driven person to hang on to views, I trust you as a person appreciates a change when it happens. If Onuachu had continued waiting in the dock for crosses, an Owobukiri would being a never ending miles to run by him. Rohr hasn’t changed his style to suit him rather he Onuachu has had to conform to Rohrs playing pattern

         
        • Eldridge Cleaver 4 months ago

          @glory,in the match against Benin, Osimhen moved to the wings to accommodate Onuachu. In the match against Lesotho, Nigeria played with 2 upfront, a formation that favours Onuachu. So, in a way, the team’s tactical set up was (consciously or unconsciously) altered to accommodate Onuachu.

           
          • GLORY 4 months ago

            @ Eldridge,the point is, it wasn’t a case of Onuachu sitting docked waiting for crosses, as lots people claimed to be what suits him.Just wanna ask you a question, please no long epistle, too busy to read. Please broda man be honest; is there any change in the way Onuachu has been playing recently? And if you are honest enough to agree, what must have necessitated that change please?.
            It will take someone who has nothing personal against a particular player to openly appreciate any improvement such player makes and that I have done. An Onuachu that was always annoyingly dropping down after tussling with defenders of all sizes; big or small, is now the one holding firm against defenders. Just what most fans wanna see.

             
          • Dr. Drey 4 months ago

            @Glory…there is absolutely no need begging anybody to improve. Other options and standby list awaits them. Let them keep waiting for us to change our style for them….the same style that has produced 3 consecutive topscorers now…..we have to change it and call back Finidi…..LMAO.

            For the 1st time in 8 matches, vs Benin, Onuachu chested an aerial ball, controlled it and laid an accurate pass to his team mate…I laughed so hard when I was watching the match….eheennnn….so he could do that before…..LMAO. Even the header he scored vs Benin, see the aggression with which he charged at that loose ball…..eheeeennnn….so he could charge at balls like that before…..LMAO. Unbelievable. The previous Onuachu would have waited for the ball to come and meet him where he was rooted…..LMAO.

            Sadiq Umar is already working for the SE o…..even b4 kicking a ball…..LMAO

    @jimmy,i made my comment without mentioning names……but why is it that you no longer feel ashamed…you have grown thick skin to it because ordinarily a normal being would have either eased out of here honourably or take time out but morons rarely do that…….you posited that the intelligent GERNOT ROHR should have thrown caution nd national pride into the wind to field fringe players against lesotho when other african country are fielding their best teams already preparing for world cup qualifiers.You start shouting for lookman,ejaria etc. who have never been tested in our national colours forgeting they can also have their BAD DAYS too….i decided not to even read your lie ridden comments again but i answered you because you keep mentioning me……i don’t know you but with your dispositions i can humbly assure you that by my professional status the least treatment you can get from me,if you meet me nd act haywire is prison custody warrant……that is just it!

     
    • JimmyBall 4 months ago

      @Lanre… Mr national status. We hear you… Lol. You replied to my comment with direct insult. That your bait did not have any impact on me is now even more disturbing for you… hahaha. I am a man of peace brother, I want you to enjoy same in your life because it appears you are angry at the world and taking it out on me for some relief… even @Dr.Drey knew he was off for rubbing mud on me to my family the last time and everyone knows that’s off-limits here for anyone. I will never have replied him harshly like I did if it was just my person being attacked and smeared for my opinions here. So as long as you insult me and not my family it’s okay, as it tells your kind of person by so doing here for everyone here who is noble… despite the last debacle between I and @Dr.Drey here… I still look forward to him countering me on opinions and others who do it with mutual respect too… but ask yourself, did you just wakeup on the wrong side of bed this morning to abuse me for no reason that should irk a normal behaving adult individual? I pray for peace in your life my dear friend… Shalom!

       
      • Ayphillydegreat 4 months ago

        @Lanre. Don’t mind him. He want the coach to try other players while the team is preparing for important WorldCup qualifiers. When the gaffer made such mistake against Madagascar which was actually a dead rubber game they all want to crucify him. LMAO!! GR has continue to shove it down their throat that he’s in charge of this team. If GR was a local coach he won’t invite Onuachu anymore. They’re the one blaming the coach that he doesn’t know how to use Onuachu. Most of his goals have come from open play except for the Header against Benin which Osimhen could’ve buried if not for the inform Alagbe. Onuachu is the one now adapting to the tactics of the team. Wait till we have other options like Sadiq and co. Then we will know who is who. What I really like now is that no one is guaranteed a shirt in these present SuperEagles.

         
        • JimmyBall 4 months ago

          @Ayphillydegreat… One will think that a respected forumite like you will see a spade and call it a spade, but here you go nudging and encouraging @Lanre… for insulting me needlessly, if I turned on him with maximum venom to dish invectives and insults in my usual retaliatory fireworks now… it’s the likes of you who will start complaining the forum is toxic… when people like you support disgraceful attitude here… petulantly childish ways some forumites haul insults for no reason on others it shows a very odorous double standard on this forum… If he tries to insult me again… and I repeat again, everyone here will know @JimmyBall can do better than those who are at best just internet tough guys here but in reality very weak and lilly-livered!

          • Ayphillydegreat 4 months ago

            I didn’t encourage anyone to insult anyone. Whatever rift you guys have that’s between y’all. Have you ever read were I complain about people insulting each other on this forum?? I only made my own points without any animosity it’s when anyone try to use derogatory or abusive language with that I will return the favor. I only echoed @Lanre’s point as regards trying other players when we have important qualifiers to prepare for. The gaffer has learnt his lessons from the Madagascar match. By the way both you and your Owanbe group calling for the Madagascar coach to take over from Rohr then can now see how Madagascar couldn’t even qualify for the same AFCON despite their quarter final feat in 2019. All thanks to Ahmad. Lmao!!

             
          • JimmyBall 4 months ago

            @Ayphillydegreat… My protest was that he started by referring to me with insult which you read and know… You came to just pat him on the back without even any caring if all he said was really sane! How will appeal to you if someone does such to you? Some folks here with the petulant and repulsive attitude of not being civilized enough to accept other people’s views must know they don’t own the forum… quite childish!

             
          • JimmyBall 4 months ago

            @Ayphillydegreat… I get your point. But next time when I drop fireback with insults… I hope you will just read and pass and not call me out? South Africa too did not qualify and even Guinea who edged us out in 2012… But my belief is that no player should be seen as a fringe player in a squad of 23. So Musa that was played because the game was inconsequentiial, but who has not been active since October 2020,what was the purpose? Isn’t he a fringe player now if we must used that word for anyone who the gaffer does not really trust now based on club profile and activity? That’s why some of us will always hold it strongly against coach Rohr that there is occasional favoritism in Super Eagles… for those not in denial, it’s obvious!

             
          • Ayphillydegreat 4 months ago

            Who told you Guinea did not qualify for the AFCON??? Lmao!!!! See as you just confirm the oracle we’ve been talking about. You see why I don’t need to argue with you?? Guinea did not qualify indeed.

            OK… It’s a mistake. I meant to say Congo DRC because they are a decent team too by African standards and beat us 2- 0 in a friendly during Olisehs charge…

             
  • Eldridge Cleaver 4 months ago

    At least Dr Drey is consistent as he still harbours doubts about Onuachu’s efficacy for the national team despite his 2 goals. That is what stands Drey apart as a logical thinker and a noble commentator. It is those who one day pull down and the other day build up that are the real hypocrites. Let us know where you stand. If you believe Onuachu still has much to prove despite his recent goals, come out and say it like Dr Drey did and not just start praising a player you pulled down bitterly not that long ago. A lot of people claim they played football yet they only start appreciating potentials after it has manifest. Rubbish. You should be able to spot a potentially great player from a mile off. Trust, these same yoyo fans praising Onuachu today will go back to their original position if Onuachu goes 5 games for club and country without scoring. Such changeable lot. They are hot with a player when he is hot and drop the same player like a sack of hot Onwubukire potatoes when he stops performing. Nonsense.

     
    • Ayphillydegreat 4 months ago

      Of course I believe he still has much to prove. I’m glad he took his chances, but there are other strikers still waiting to stake a claim. Sadiq will definitely get his chances sooner or later. His height is an asset to the team and all his goals except the one in Benin have all come from open play. So I don’t how the coach altered his tactics to accommodate him. Most times when he comes in we revert to 4-2-3-1 allowing the likes of Onyekuru and Iheanacho to find a pass and once he’s in the box he’s got lethal shooting skills that can mess up any goalkeeper. Assuming Sadiq made it to camp we could’ve been saying a different story by now. However, it’s good that he can give us more options upfront.

       
  • Hmmm….its in only Nigeria that a fan will recommend that players like Shehu and Junior Ajayi deserve first team shirt than Indidi and Iwobi respectively.
    To Rohr..some of us here are not surpised that the games went like that after 4-4 miracle of benin, we knew the super eagles wont joke with the rest.
    Congrats to @Glory, Aphilly, Dr.drey(No1 Enemy of them all), Kingston , Oakfield (the anti-Segun odegbami)etc. World cup ticket Next.
    In Rohr we trust.
    Imagine Amunike with a team full of Akpeyi, Shehu, Anibaba, Junior Ajayi, Olayinka, Arokodare,Nwakali, fanendo Adi plus some nice players from Ajegunle or naija league as some people here want it. Hmmmm…u people just start to dey fail.

     
  • Yea, more is good. Now that Paul is scoring for the team, he has given the Super Eagles handlers more options in the strikers position. That doesnt mean he has cemented his place as the number 2 or 3 in terms of hierarchy for the strikers position. In my own opinion he is good but I feel there are better attackers out there e.g. Sadiq Umar. Who I believe will get his chance sooner or later and will become a mainstay in the team. But I will also like to add that onuachu still has somethings going for him, he has scored goals for the team, plus he has experience with the team from playing in the afcon and qualifiers so it wont be an easy task for just anyone to come in and upstage him.
    It will be interesting to watch, the competition for places in the team, the fight to become among first 11 and 23 players in the team. I see alot of battles for places in the nearest future. If the players expected to switch finally get cleared then those who haven’t had serious challenges in their position will have to sit up. It will all be for the good of the team.

     
  • GLORY 4 months ago

    Hahahaha.. @ Drey when I saw Onuachu chested high flying ball in the midst of 3 players n stood afterwards, ummmh ekumé Wheredem ? Uncontiously came outta me mouth, also it seemed like the 3 Lesotho players, got confused, he was the wrong player their coach pointed out to them. Onuachu was chasing balls to corner flag. At that point, I could only say wahala dey oo n before I could finish saying that, the ball was in the net. Longinus Onuachulawandowski has scored again. I just couldn’t stop laughing. Honestly broda, I’m truly happy for him. The fear of losing his place to Sadiq is getting the best out of him. He just couldn’t risk waiting for crosses anymore as Chuzzy is just not ready for that. Lolzzz. Onuachu not too proud to listen

          @Glory, It is not strange at all. You know what you said about Onuachu. Unless you don’t have a conscience. You called him Onwubukire and you made a bold statement suggesting that Onuachu is not and in all probability will NEVER be Super Eagles material. I am not attacking you but just calling out your change of tone as hypocrisy. See Dr Drey, he is still vociferous on his doubts about Onuachu and the fact that his place in the Super Eagles is still in jeopardy despite scoring 2 goals. See Aphylidegrate, he is very much contained and restrained in his praises for Onuachu despite his goals. But your ridiculous 360 degrees turn from Onuachu being Onwubukire one minute to now potentially being the new Yekini is disappointing and disgraceful. To now praise someone to high heavens after spending your precious time in ENDLESSLY CLAMOURING FOR THEIR EXCLUSION FROM THE NATIONAL TEAM is repugnant and disgusting. I am just glad that Onuachu has put you in your place.
          As for Chima, silence is the best answer for someone who comes in the middle of something they know nothing about only to start taking sides blindly. This sort of behaviour only serves to reveal hollow thinking.

If we can shore up our midfield a bit another nations cup title should not be impossible. With Osimhen, Sadiq and Onuachu striking is covered… It has to be the three of them, Iheanacho should be named amongst midfielders even though if he will be playing behind the arrowhead when on pitch… I can’t even say Osimhen is better than Sadiq… I swear I won’t say that… Sadiq is super clean and very fast for a player his height.

His two goals; one a quick and daring reaction to nod home, the second an audacious hit are the types top clubs long to see n not the type where the player stands with a defender and the floated ball nods him n recochets into d net. Watching Osimene play, just tells why he is the undisputed No. 1 at the moment. Cant remember Osimene falling down lazily. There was something Osimene did in that Lesotho game; attacking a ball close to the corner flag, never relenting, nodded the ball going over the line back unto play,even with the Lesotho player in front of him.

I don’t want to involve myself because those who disagree are taking it personal here. Myself I don’t agree about the Rohr criticism because i love beautiful football and winning competition matches or qualifiers, i will only criticize the coach if it was a friendly match and he refused to try new players, baba the coach has heeded to some of our critics and I salute him. On the other hand Ayphilly is using style to insult and playing maturity. Baba stop that nobody wishes the coach bad on this forum as long as i know except a wizard.

     
    • JimmyBall 4 months ago

      @Chima E Samuels… My dear. Recall last Nations Cup how Ndidi and Etebo fatigued out with no trusted cover? I believe Super Eagles has become an enviable brand to the point that we have to trust all players we invite to the national senior team or not invite them at all. When the likes of Brazil, France and Germany name a 23man squad… they are all dependable and who starts or sit on the bench is just a matter of form and prefenece from the coach of the day but in ability they are all equals and at same level. The notion of seeing some players as fringe is funny because at that level it’s juat that all 23 players cant start same time that some will need to sit and start from the bench… they said playing Shehu Abduallahi, or Iwuala from the start will have amounted to gamble and I refuse to accept that notion because I believe they are as good as any other called up. We have seen Rohr using Semi Ajayi in midfield a defender at club for the last good two years… Isn’t that bizarre? I believe if Shehu is allowed to play maybe we would really be believing that guy is not even inferior to Ndidi by now… he has shown glimpse of one to be trusted and we should trust him if we stand no risk of any real hurt… We cannot afford to depend on at most 15players alone going into world cup qualifiers or tournaments proper… It will hurt us in the long run. I swear, I do not see Iwuala as inferior to chukwueze… neither do I see Shehu as inferior to Ndidi. The masquerade that always have centre stage will often always be thought of as the best dancer but the one in the hinterground may even better if allowed to show what it can do… We should learn to be brave to save for rainy days and not risk fatiguing key players to hurt us when it’s crunch time… when they cant silence my view points they whipup sentiments amongst themselves pulling up old inconsequential views like which department has the most challenging task on a football pitch… you must not agree with my views but they are mine!

  • JimmyBall 4 months ago

    Oh! @Dr.Drey… defence duties are easy according to you na. Lol… It should be easy for Chukwueze to play wingback na, abi he does not have legs? If Iwobi can be played in left wing back and right wing back by a real authority like Ancelotti, since it’s only simple defensive job combined with attacking duties on the wings it should not be out of place to ask Chukwueze to do it na, abi wingback na rugby position now? Double speak… defensive work is easy for attackers and it should be hard for Chukwueze and Olayinka when both are deployed as wingbacks in a 3-5-2, oh, I see they are both rugby players now and will be alien for them! Hahaha… If chukwueze cannot play wingerback
    as a winger when asked in the future then he
    is not real professional. Modern day football
    no be pool party, you have to be ready when
    a duty is asked of you no matter how you feel

Well broda man, no hard feelings bro. We are all here to talk about football. All I will say is that next time, think twice before pulling any player down because the God they serve might just make you be the same person building them up as you are now doing in the case of Onuachu.

        Even Onuachu himself thanks all of us fans for our constructive criticism but bystanders like you will not rest on CSN, YOU DEY TAKE PANADO FOR ONUACHU’s HEADACHE.
