Dennerby Disappointed With VAR Decision In Falcons Defeat To France

Dennerby Disappointed With VAR Decision In Falcons Defeat To France

Super Falcons head coach Thomas Dennerby has praised his players for their resilient display in the 1-0 loss to 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup hosts France in Monday’s Group A clash at the Roazhon Park, Rennes, reports Completesports.com.

Dennerby was also disappointed with the VAR decision which aided France’s only goal of the game from the spot 13 minutes from full time.

The hosts were awarded the penalty when Ngozi Ebere brought down Lee Sommer inside the box. She was also sent off for her second bookable offence of the game.

Wendie Renard’s initial kick came off the post but she got an opportunity to retake the penalty after Chiamaka Nnadozie was adjudged to have come off her line.

“My [Nigeria] players are the heroes,” Dennerby told reporters after the game.

“I am disappointed with the result. France is a really good team and does not need support from anybody to win games.

“I feel so sorry because the girls were fighting so well and followed the match plan, but it’s getting destroyed by people. Of course, we are not happy.”

The African champions hope to get favourable results from the other groups’ final ties to earn their passage to the Last 16.

    Really I wonder why France are so desperate for a win.
    They have to retake the penalty to even had the goal.

    There is karma. France will not advance beyond next round. The roadblock is the American team.

     
    • Abraham 6 months ago

      And Karma is a competent bitch. Payback time for the France team is just around the corner.

       
  • oluwamayowa oyeniyi okula 6 months ago

    Yes I totally agree the French team won’t progress beyond the next stage.They aren’t really a fantastic team.If the falcons had taken their first half chances the story could have been different.

     
  • “Dennerby Disappointed With VAR Decision In Falcons Defeat To France”: he is not the only one!!!!

    Key matches that will now decide Nigeria’s Second round fate.

    Scotland vs Argentina tomorrow at 20:00 hours. A heavy win for either side further dents Nigeria’s chances.

    Cameroon vs New Zealand 20 June 18:00 hours. Assuming either Scotland or Argentina win with a healthy margin on Wednesday and either of these sides Cameroon or New Zealand wins heavy on Thursday, Nigeria is out!

    Chile vs Thailand 20 June at 20:00 hours. A 4:0 win for Chile and a healthy result in any of the 2 matches above and Nigeria is out.

    That VAR assisted penalty-retake decision was disappointing indeed!

     
    • Glory 6 months ago

      Oh man. Too much heavy here. Abeg these girls have done marvelously well. And Dennerby has shown, that given more time, he is capable of totally transforming our falcons to world beaters. First time, seeing a Nigerian side playing an ultra organised football, only just lacking a precise final third decision. That I m sure he can sort out if given more time. Anyway heavy heavy heavy. This load go too heavy even if we qualify, final third definitely not sorted yet. Even if the girls fail to go through, I still praise their effort. After all agbero go put load down wey too heavy. This kind over load go concern agbero….

       
      • This organization was already taking shape at the nations cup,but many people didn’t notice because all they wanted was Falcons scoring and scoring.If you go back to watch those matches you would see how they were maintaining a certain structure,o yes it didn’t look beautiful to the untrained eyes at that time,but I was pleasantly surprised and loved it so much.Eg I saw how Oshoala maintained a defensive shape when not on d ball,and so on.
        The foundations of what we are seeing at this World-cup had since been laid.
        No wonder we should never despise the days of little beginnings.

         
    • Thanks @ Deo,very helpful.

       
  • Ayphillydegreat 6 months ago

    I think the Falcons will qualify. Argentina and Scotland are on the same level with the Scots having a slight edge, with the way they’ve played so far in this tournament that match is likely ending in a draw which is good for Nigeria. Cameroon and New Zealand are also on par so I don’t see a 2-0 or 3-0 victory for either side. My crystal ball see that game heading for a draw as well. Chile can not score more than 4 goals against Thailand. They’re are not a good team in the final third. Chile will win but not by a very large margin.

    Therefore, I see the SuperFalcons facing either Germany or Italy in the round of 16 which will be the climax and these fabulous ladies deserve that one more match in this tournament. It’s unfortunate and very disheartening to see them lose in a cruel way yesterday, but it’s the rule of the game that favors European and South American teams all the time against African oppositions.

    Either way even if the rest of the scenarios doesn’t favor us these ladies have captured the worlds imagination with their spirited display last night. However, that was our level, but we took a step forward and I think if we can keep this coach for another four years SuperFalcons will be a force in 2023. 

     
  • Proudly 9ja 6 months ago

    The team did excellently well, if I would fault the coach, it had to do with the fact that he didn’t take her off after d 1st half as I could see she was carrying a knock. In d 1st half u could see her holding her thigh and in d 2nd half it was taped with those strips. I don’t know if u guys noticed it, the physio should have communicated this to the coach if they didn’t. I think she got hurt in d 1st half when she tried to outrun d French centerback (not renard, the other black girl mbock baty or something).

    As it it right now, my prediction is that we have a good chance of meeting Italy as Germany is most likely facing brazil or Nigeria. If we end up facing d Italians (my preference) I blif we have a very good opportunity of making d quarter finals if the team can be as tactically and technically disciplined as they were in yesterday’s game against d French. We can concede d posession to dem but catch dem on a counter with our speed and physicality. We can tire d Italians I swear, ordega should continue probing and being a torn in d flesh of defenders, she should continue to use her strength and speed. if my assertion that oshoala is hurt the coach should bring in kanu or imo to take her spot. My humble opinion. Great job by d Falcons and d coaching crew, was very impressed by them yesterday

    • Another coach I admire. The kind of coaches that should coach our teams.
      Hear Tata Martino(former Barca and now Mexico coach) speak wisdom:

      “I’m still convinced we have to perfect the Plan A,” Martino said at a news conference Tuesday. “That’s something you hear a lot in Argentina, people demanding about a change of plan when long-term we’re always talking about the lack of time for a national team manager. For a national team manager, a calendar year is a short amount of time. They demand a Plan B or Plan C when in reality what you have to do is perfect the A. What we’re doing is starting with the A.
      “I’m really happy because I think there’s a clear form to the team, apart from the opponents and the strengths they have, to come out and try to dominate the game. In this sense, we’ve played better at times, other times not as much but the way in which the team plays can clearly be seen.”

      If Martino is talking,a coach is talking.
      Dennerby had roughly one calendar year to prepare for this World cup.
      We can use patience here,there’s more to come,hoping to have a willing FA.

      The draw between Argentina and Scotland may well have put the SuperFalcons in the knockout Stage. VAMOS ARIBA SUPERFALCONS!!!

       
      • O yes,we are still third after today’s matches.
        I can imagine the Falcons camp warming up.
        This is looking gooood.

         
      • E be like say you get crystal ball for eyes. Well make that crystal ball work well well. Your analysis of Argentina and Scotland was spot on I really hope it works out the same with Cameroun and New Zealand. The girls truly deserves another match. To get a win from what is arguably the toughest group is not easy at all.
        If there is one thing the Weastern world cannot deny concerning the super Falcons, it is the fact that they are well organized and have a structure with the ability to hit teams on the counter. Falcons tried in this competition and I hope they qualify.

    • Nice one Onwaj. We need Thailand to do it for us tommorrow. They should not allow more than 2 goal margin

       
  • People who complained vehemently about the retaken penalty by France against Nigeria can now see that rules are rules. It doesn’t matter which nations are affected. If you infringe against the rules of soccer, particularly in FIFA competitions (you may still do it in places like African and South America and get away with it), in this day and age, you are bound to be seriously penalized. There is no two ways about it!. The VAR is there to ensure it. Scotland just got knocked out now by the same rule that made Nigeria lose against France.
    So, my advise for everybody it to acquaint themselves well with all FIFA rules, so that they won’t feel hard done by if any FIFA rule works against them. Scotland should also be saying FIFA hate them but they won’t be justified because rules are rules and their keeper infringed against it!.
    It is now up to the NFF to educate players of all our national teams about FIFA rules. If you know the rules, you won’t want to infringe against it. So, NFF and the coaches should start doing the job of educating players about FIFA rules.

      FIFA hates africa my foot…! Village man mentality. Arrant nonsense.
      They will tell us if Scotland too is an African country.

  • Michael Adelami 6 months ago

    Well I think this VAR thing is fake. How do you expect the keeper to know when exactly the ball is played by the player taking the penalty.
    I think there should rather be a range of distance they can be allowed to move both feet of the line than to ask them to stay put at least one foot on the line.
    Keeping goes along with reflexes and I think it is normal to move a little distance of the line.
    The rule is only making it difficult for keepers to save penalties.

     
    • Michael Adelami 6 months ago

      *off

       
      • I think the argument should be, “to what extent can keepers move off the line,” just as you stated. But to be condemning FIFA right now based on that rule is wrong. The argument should now be, “it is impossible for keepers to stay put on the line and be able to catch a penalty.” If nations argue in that direction, they can force a change to that rule. But to say FIFA hates any nation or a particular team because of that rule, is not a winning argument.

         
        • Michael Adelami 6 months ago

          Thanks for your constructive criticism. I love your point of view

           
    • Dr. Drey 6 months ago

      How wont a keeper know when exactly the ball is played..? Is the keeper blind..? So how do keepers know when exactly to dive if they didnt know when the ball was/has been played…?

       
      • Michael Adelami 6 months ago

        @Drey, these keepers most of time follow their hearts when they dive to catch penalties not that they know the exact place/direction the player Will put the ball.
        Therefore, they try to move fast enough to either of the two sides (right or left) hoping that their guess is right because if they delay in taking a direction on time, they will never get the ball. This makes them a little anxious and make them move in time to which ever direction they have settled for knowing fully well that when they on line, it makes it impossible to catch penalties played to the extremes of the goal post, they will need to jump a little forward to reduce the distance they need to stretch when trying reach balls played to the extremes.
        If FIFA doesn’t do more to this rule, what it implies is that every penalty played to the extreme low corner of either side of the goal post will score because many keepers will never get there before the ball finds it way into the back of the net.

         
        • Dr. Drey 6 months ago

          My brother,
          Pls search clips of Enyimba vs Etoile du sahel (2004 CCL final) and Liverpool vs AC Milan (2004 UCL final – penalty shootout) and go look up Dele aiyenugba and Nelson Dida stopping penalties with their feet on the line before diving. Saying it is impossible is nothing but a falacy.
          And pls, whether wild guess or not, i’m yet to see pro goalies take a dive even before the kick is taken. They often dive as the kick is being taken, right way or wrong way. If you have any clip of a keeper or keepers who dive before the kick has been taken, pls kindly post it here and let me watch. I’m really interested in seeing/knowing such keeper.

        So which of the two teams is superior, knowing that they both have the same points, goals for and against

         
        • As it stands, Cameroon have knocked out both new Zealand and Argentina. We have the same number of points and same goal difference, however, crucially they have scored one goal more than us. We have scored two, they have scored 3

           
  • Footballfanatic 6 months ago

    Now unto the Chile vs Thailand. Hope Chile don’t win by mire than 3 goals

     
    • Lord AMO 6 months ago

      @Footballfanatic, I rather it came down to chile vs thailand than to see our other African sisters go out ingloriously. Cameroon tried in this match although I think they play too rough sometimes but that’s their style from day one.

       
      • Footballfanatic 6 months ago

        Cameroon, right from their induction into soccer have been know to rely.on their physical strength than technical skills or talent. Either way its a win for Africa to see one of our own progress to the next round. Shows the improvement in African female soccer gone are the days of 10-0, 7-0.

         
    • 3 goals is not good for us because they will have more goals scored than us. 2 goals max is good for our qualification.

       
  • At the end of the day number of goals scored might just send Nigeria out. This is why its important to get goals in matches. Hoping falcons still qualify at the end of the Chile – Thailand match.

     
  • Even if they dont make it to round of 16 , they have earned our respect.
    That is all we ask of Rhor and his “young team”
    Imagine how Cameroon fought a great fight.
    Give your all, that is all we the fans ask. Never mind the Buharis , lying Mohamed and their APC band of thieves and liars.
    Just do it for the battered nigerian masses.

     
  • Ara Nkita 6 months ago

    Bitter sweet victory for Africa

     
  • I think Nigeria super falcons has qualified, it would ve be a different story if Cammeroun won with more than 2 goals.congrats to the super falcons of Nigeria. 

     
  • Nigeria lost to Cameroun,via the fare play records, Nigeria has more cards than Cameroun,including a red card,all the same lets wait for Chile, maybe we can get the luck we deserve……

     
    • Ara Nkita 6 months ago

      Nigeria lost to Cameroon because of this:

      Nigeria: 0-3
      2-0
      0-1

      Cameroon: 1-3
      0-1
      2-1

      Cameroon scored in 2 games,Nigeria scored only in 1.

      Cameroon has more number of goals scored (3) while Nigeria has (2)

      These rules apply FIRST before fair play rules.

       
    • Chile not scored in this tourney,Thailand has scored one.
      Chile putting four unreplied goals past Thailand? Urhobo say,efian!-No!

      So for me,it’s the Falcons and the Lionesses. Sweet for Africa and you can see that Cameroon is reaping the dividends of paying concentrated attention to female football for some years now . In fact it looks like the country dey vex,many may not know that it’s a huge coup to have Clarence Seedorf(the Professor) as the men’s coach, Patrick Kluivert assisting him.That’s huge.A big coach like Mr.Seedorf enters Africa somewhat under the radar.
      Go Falcons…and Lionesses

       
      • Oh,I’m informed Chile only needs a 3-0 win to advance?Hmmn…

        Anyway,they’ve been poor in the final third,even before the WCup. Once again efian!
        Oya Falcons prep for next match.

         
  • Dr. Drey 6 months ago

    The 4 best 3rd placed teams will be determined by;
    – Greatest number of pints in all matches.
    – Superior goal difference in all matches.
    – Most goals scored in all matches.
    – Best Disciplinary record.
    – Drawing of lots by FIFA.

    Nigeria currently has less goals scored (2 – 3) and a worse disciplinary record (5Y, 1R – 6Y) compared to Cameroon.

    Thus as it stands, Cameroon is occupying the 3rd third best placed teams postion, with Nigeria occupying the 4th (temporarily though).

    All eyes are on the CHI-THAI game now. Give us this day O Lord…!

     
    • Ara Nkita 6 months ago

      This night I’m supporting Thailand.

        Nnwannem….see me having high BP for Thailand match like say dem go dash me bags of rice o..!

         
  • Ololo 6 months ago

    Using the number of goals scored is obviously not a fair one..some teams had very difficult opponents like our group compared to the Cameroon group

     
    • That still should not have prevented Nigeria from not scoring in their two other matches. That is why it is important to get goals in matches. The draws were made long before the current permutations everybody is now making. So, all teams knew what they were entering into.
      When you play to score you always put yourself at an advantageous position down the line because it might just come down to what the falcons are currently facing. That is why strong teams try to win with as much goals as possible when they play very weak teams.

       
    • Well sir,I guess you are just soliloquizing.I won’t be the one to tell you that this rule is not new.

      However,it’s footballs tendency to honor the blood-rush of “it’s a goaaal!!”, not minding the real circumstances involved.
      I ask people TEAM A plays the first leg of match, away at TEAM B and achieves a 1nil victory.
      TEAM B now visits TEAM A and triumphs 3-2. FIFA says TEAM B wins bcos they have more away goals(3 goals) to TEAM A’s 1goal.
      My question is does FIFA realize that TEAM A went to TEAM B’s ground and conceded NO goals? Why doesn’t FIFA see it as a handsome feat. Is there no reward for that? Is defending not a crucial element of football? Are defenders just passengers in a team?

      So that’s another example of how goals are viewed over an above real circumstances.
      Well,we hope with time things will improve. Eg you can see keepers and defenders are now being given specific awards in some climes because we can’t keep celebrating strikers and attacking midfielders alone.

       
      • Dr. Drey 6 months ago

        I quite agree with you. FIFA glorifies the attacking side of football above the defensive side, hence the promulgation of most of the laws of the game. As a matter of fact the laws favor and promote attack ahead of defense and that is why FIFA at various times has progressively improved the laws of the game to favor the attacking side of the game….a typical reform is the ‘keeper MUST remain on the line during penalties’ rule….which many are fuming about now (albeit unsensibly due to ignorance). Another is the overrule of the backpass handling by goalies. I remember Denmark frustrating Germany with that tactic in the final of Euro 92, sometimes they would pass the ball backwards from deep in the German half all the way back into the hands of Peter Schmicheal. Fifa duly abolished that rule and that crazy style of play was laid to rest.
        At some point in time too, Fifa also experimented with the kick-ins…instead of throw-ins. Also the 3 points for a win (instead of 2) and 1 point for a draw too was to promote attack over defense so teams will have more to play for. And so many more
        And can anyone blame FIFA…? Goals are the beauty of the game..!

         
        • Yeah @ Dr. Drey and interesting perspective you’ve added on this.
          Indeed I think that the eruption of emotions that takes place when a goal is scored, makes FIFA look transfixed to just goals.
          I like to say goals are the outer beauty of the game.
          But when one looks deeper at the work of the technocrats behind the wheels,the pilots–I mean the coaches,you will see the true beauty.
          I just read now,that for all the beauty and goals Chelsea scored last season, Sarri just revealed that he had a defensive problem throughout the season because of the way Hazard plays. He had to find a solution for those defensive lapses Hazard perpetually caused,while more or less indulging Hazard to play to his strengths.
          Now eventhough people may not have noticed,he said he was playing 4-3-3(that we know) formation in Chelsea but not the type of 4-3-3 he idealy liked or that he was comfortable with.
          It’s amazing when you go near these Technocrats.
          FIFA? I blame them a lil jare.They should know more than just,”football is about goals”. Haba are they not the ruling body? They should know more. How they are famed for being too slow in making changes- this tenure is even better,Blatter’s tenure,the less said about it the better.
          Our sport isn’t the only sport with this goal “weakness”. Yet lots of them have since fashioned various means to compensate for this “weakness”,whereas football still dey trek for back.
          I hope FIFA evolves something pretty fast to compensate other areas of the game,like the example I gave in previous note.

           
      • When Nigeria played that ultra conservative match against France, I was thinking that it was even better if we had attempted to try and attack, at least once in a while in that match, who knows we might just get France conceding another own goal. But some people on this forum will not have it. To them playing an ultra defensive game was better because we needed only a draw from that match.
        At the end of the day, with that type of game plan we still lost. People forget that when you play ultra defensive game, you put pressure on your defense and sooner or later you will concede goals or concede penalty, or even commit a red card offense.
        You only win matches if you play to score. Also attack is the best form of defense we always say. So next time, regardless of the circumstances, falcons should also play to score goals.
        Still hoping that Chile – Thailand favors Nigeria.

         
        • Those who attack don’t just wake up in the morning and attack sir. They learnt it over time. Liverpool,Man City,Real Madrid,Brazil,anyone, learnt it over time. How much time did our coach have? Even Cameroun started preparing long before us.
          So take it easy @josh.

          Pls hear to the wisdom of a top-class coach in similar limited time as Dennerby:
          Tata Martino(former Barca and now Mexico coach) speak wisdom:

          “I’m still convinced we have to perfect the Plan A,” Martino said at a news conference Tuesday. “That’s something you hear a lot in Argentina, people demanding about a change of plan when long-term we’re always talking about the lack of time for a national team manager. For a national team manager, a calendar year is a short amount of time. They demand a Plan B or Plan C when in reality what you have to do is perfect the A. What we’re doing is starting with the A.
          “I’m really happy because I think there’s a clear form to the team, apart from the opponents and the strengths they have, to come out and try to dominate the game. In this sense, we’ve played better at times, other times not as much but the way in which the team plays can clearly be seen.”

          If Martino is talking,a coach is talking.
          Dennerby had roughly one calendar year to prepare for this World cup.
          We can use patience here,there’s more to come,hoping to have a willing FA.

           
          • I understand that Nigeria was in arguably the toughest group in this competition. I also appreciate the fact that they even won a match in that group. What I am saying is that, we should not just concentrate 100% on defending. We have the talent in the super falcons team to score goals. The coach needs to adjust his tactics a little bit and falcons will be surprising teams. They really have the talent to do so.

             
          • @josh did you hear Mr.Martino?
            The talents in the Falcons,you talk of,where they not selected by Mr Dennerby? Good.
            Maybe you didn’t understand what I mean by, “Those who attack,don’t just wake up in the morning and attack”. I also listed teams. You think Real Madrid flies forward to attack just because,they have the talent to do so? Far from that,there is a tactical defensive organization behind it. Man City and others too.

            Coach Dennerby is starting from somewhere,just like the Mexico coach said above,building proper organisation and the end point is not 100% defending. Be patient, other aspects of our game will unfold.

            It was so little time to prepare the team, I almost tired of repeating this.

             
          • @ josh,See also what Sarri(now of Juventus)said yesterday:

            “Sarri just revealed that he had a defensive problem throughout the season because of the way Hazard plays. He had to find a solution for those defensive lapses Hazard perpetually caused,while more or less indulging Hazard to play to his strengths.
            Now eventhough people may not have noticed,he said he was playing 4-3-3(that, we know) formation in Chelsea, but not the type of 4-3-3 he idealy liked or that he was comfortable with.”

            Many times,we only see a team attack and attack and we admire it,but behind the scene is ALWAYS a defensive structure to balance things.Our girls will attack,step by step pls.
            Cheers.

    Football shouldn’t just be about goals scored.. Defending goals are also an integral part of the game.. Holding France was no small feat but a master piece.. South Korea is equally a very good team. Cameron can never hold France like we did and they are no better team compared to us. So the rule is not bringing the best results.. Take for instance the new rule limiting goalkeeper to the line is not spoting cheating because what’s the difference with the player denying before shooting var should be used to stop obvious errors that are detrimental to fair play not spoting a poor goalkeeper who is trying his best to stop a goal..not everything should be a rule there are better things to address

    Infact…Buhari should open our borders to allow importation of Thailand rice till the end of this year….as a sign of gratitude to Thailand.
    They defended stoutly as if they needed the match to qualify…!

     
  • Dr. Drey 6 months ago

    Now its a going to be a Saturday to remember.
    Germany vs Nigeria
    Nigeria vs Burundi

     
  • Nonsense “I was shaking like kilode” that is why it is better with Rohr because we have never had any course to use calculator before we qualify for any competition since his appointment. With maximum respect to dennerby but I think if Nigeria had fair better again Norway we wouldn’t have gone through this.

     
  • Azizat Oshoala should be fit for the Germans o. She is the only player that has 60% ability to make a difference against tough Germans in going past players or score unexpected goals. Our No. 7 always run without purpose most of the time. Big congrats to the girls and everyone that kept faith in them

     
  • Omo9ja 6 months ago

    Ahahaha. Like coach Rohr did in Russia last year against Argentina ba? Hmmmm, interesting lol.

    Just a simple question? Who is the best between coach Rohr and coach Dennerby? You started by yourself.

    Please ooo, don’t bring your excuses in.

    The results are there already.
    Within a year and few months,

    WAFU CHAMPIONS.
    AFRICAN CHAMPIONS
    NOW, SECOND ROUND IN FRANCE.

    This coach said it before the tournament. He said, let’s get out of the group stages first then, we would take it one match at a time.

    Coach Rohr, my Super Eagles is a baby team and don’t expect too much. At least, semifinal OR Final. Sorry, I don’t get it. Are you talking about our Super Eagles or your own Super Eagles?

    I have tried my best by qualifying Nigeria with a game to spare both world cup and Afcon. And so? Your achievements after that sir? Well, my team is young.

    Shio, na sit down I dey sit down dey watch. This time around, no more bla bla, bla, action is needed please. God bless Nigeria!!!

     
    • Lord AMO 6 months ago

      Haba, not a fair comparison na.  Dennerby inherited a team that were already african champs.  So nothing to improve on there except some may argue that the team looked worse in winning this current championship.  
      Rohr on the other hand took a team that hadnt been to the afcon and qualified them with a game to spare wwhich was the same feat he accomplished in world cup qualification, a feat made alm the more impressive considering the group included the number one ranked african team and the defending african champion.  

      They both finished third in their respective world cup groups with dennerby’s side relying on the changed tournament format to qualify.  They’ve both done well.  Dennerby for giving us organizatiin and Rohr for making us a force to reckon with on the continent again and also building a solid team.  I give the edge to Rohr for the very fact that before his arrival, no one put any hope or stock in the super eagles but now we have actual expectations backed up by results on the continent

       
      • Omo9ja 6 months ago

        Did you remember that Sunday Olishe discovered most of the current players in the Super Eagles today?

        I am not bringing coach Rohr down. What I don’t understand or like about is coaching is that he doesn’t welcome competitions.

        This is the first time coach Dennerby is coaching a team in Africa and in the short period of time, we can see what the gentleman is trying to build for Nigeria.

        Ah, coach Dennerby is building confidence in this team.

        Hmmm, Chai… coach Dennerby is building never say die in this team.

        Still, this coach doesn’t know very much about Nigerian players and he is playing in the round of 16 on Saturday. Come on Nigerians, this man deserves a loud ovation fa.

        A coach is heading to Afcon without good goalkeepers and you guys doesn’t wanted us to talk and if I say something or we say something, you people will say we hate coach Rohr?

        You know what bro, truth is hurt. God bless Nigeria!!!

         
    • Tomorrow yu will tell us that you are a patriotic Nigerian abi. To you praying that Rohr and to a large extent Nigeria, fails at the nations cup in Egypt is patriotism. You are the greatest unpatriotic person I have ever read his comment in along while.
      You praise one coach and raise him high to high heavens and at the same time, pray consistently that another coach fails; even WHEN YOU KNOW THAT THEY ARE BOTH COACH OF NIGERIA!
      At the end of the day people like you will be too ashamed to come here and comment because the super eagles will utterly disappoint you!

       
      • Omo9ja 6 months ago

        Sometimes, it’s good to be laughing sha. Don’t get this tweeted bro.

        I don’t hate coach Rohr.
        I used to be his fans before
        The world cup and I have promised if he convinced me enough in Africa and at global stage why not, I will change my mind but the way it is now with these three goalkeepers, Mr. Rohr is not ready.

        Everybody was happy about Super Falcons against France because they tried their best and I’m pretty sure that you will see another tactics on Saturday against the Germans team.

        I am not wishing my Country bad. I am not wishing coach Rohr bad idea. What I’m saying is, Nigerians are not satisfied with his approach. Once again, don’t say what I didn’t say. I love him too much and I love my Country so well. No wahala. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

         
        • Ayphillydegreat 6 months ago

          Who is the better goalkeeper than what we have in Egypt presently?? Please provide at least two goalkeepers that should be in Egypt ahead of the ones we already have. OPURO BURUKU! When we’re you ever a Rohr fan? Are you not the one that always complain about Ighalo and Musa before the WorldCup??? You changed your mouth after we beat Iceland then you started crying that Rohr should take Ighalo with him. Now no more complaints about Ighalo since he shut you up. Don’t worry both Dennerby and Rohr are both foreign coaches. Your praises on Dennerby does not hold water because they both achieved the same feet, and the Falcons benefited from the tournament expansion.

           
          • Ayphillydegreat 6 months ago

            Rohr gave Kalu, Chukwueze, Osimhen Onuachu, Uzoho, Awaziem, Ebuhei, Collins, Aina, Simmy, Idowu, and the likes their SuperEagles debuts. So which most players in the present SuperEagles did Oliseh Mr runaway discover? Who do you think you can come here to deceive??? You better continue deceiving yourself. You already know that I will call you out 

             
        • What amazes me is the way you blow hot and cold on this Rohr issues. If super falcons play you throw stone at Rohr. If super falcons win you throw stone at Rohr and if super falcons lose you still throw stone at Rohr! Wetin Rohr do you sef? Your comment on Rohr are all over CSN and everybody can clearly see where you stand about him.
          Rohr and his team has not even played a single match but his ears are full of all your aspersions against him. Rohr has not played a single match and lose in the soon to begin nations cup, you have already laid the gauntlet, ready to smack him out of the super eagles coaching job!
          It is only God that will save Rohr from your hand, Omo9ja!
