    I watched Luxembourg Vs Madagascar yesterday and I can say the Madagascar team are not that push-over as many would think. Luxembourg was winning 1-nil then they came from a goal down to winning them 1-3. Then they lost it all again and finished the match 3-3.

    WHAT I OBSERVED!
    THERE STRENGTH.
    There team seems to be very fast in attack and they have good transition from Midfield to Attack. They also have a very tall, pacy and accurate shooter. I tried picking the number at the back of his shirt but wasn’t able to. Like the guy wears number 10/7. He should be marked out when Nigeria faces the Madagascans.

    THERE BIGGEST FLAW
    They seem to have a very bad defense line and lack a good goal keeper to cover there defensive errors. This was shown yesterday when they blew there 2 goal lead away within the space of 15 mins and Luxembourg missed a lot of chances after that.
    I bet this will be a huge advantage to the Super Eagles when they meet the Madagascar team cuz Our ATTACK na DIE!

    All in all, The Super Eagles team will still defeat them with the look of things cuz they don’t pose much threat to me but we shouldn’t undermine them.

     
    • So it is Luxembourg that Madagascar played that you are gauging their strength from.You see Mediocre minds shall never cease in this country.Just like when Flying Eagles beat Qatar people were saying this player should drop this player in SE and that player should drop that player from SE. Please guys I have always said Football has levels Lets not forget that Abeg!!!. Just like a player plying his trade in Indonesia can not bench a player playing in Spain.FOOTBALL HAS LEVELS NIGERIANS PLEASE STOP CLAMOURING FOR MEDIORITY AND STOP CLAMOUR FOR CLASS. If Madagascar Like let them beat Luxumbourg 10nil that will not shake me unless they beat England or Spain or even wales with gareth bale i will not shake

        You can make your points without insulting anyone. ‘the mediocre minds’ part was unnecessary. You have a strong point, but don’t make the other person feel foolish even if you don’t agree with his points.
