    Vardy scored with 4 mins left in the game bawo

  • Dennis is a real talent who uses more of his brain than his strength to play football…..his combination with Sarr will create problems for premier league defenders this season….Nice game overall…..I reserve praise for Etebo the mestro….Etebo is a midfield machine who deserve to be in the premier league…..he was a real handful and hard to dispossess of the ball…..I wonder what he was doing in turkey and lower division all this while.

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      Good start indeed for Dennis….glad to see he has put all those previous controversies around him behind, I guess he has learnt enough from his personal experience and possibly a word or two of candid pieces of advice from Isaac Success. There cant be a better way to call it other than ‘dream debut’….a goal, an assist and most importantly, a win. FOCUS…! That should be the key word for him henceforth

      Etebo’s impatience added 3 more years to the time he should have hit the EPL….otherwise who rushes to sign for a stoke city in the championship on the even of the world cup when you are already a guaranteed starter with the national team…?

      It really been a good start for our players.

      But really, when will this Jamie Vardy guy ever slow down….?

      • Footballfanatic 3 years ago

        That was one ridiculous move. I have always wondered why someone will sign for a championship team right before the worldcup when you are going to a place where you can market yourself. He was also one of our best player in the worldcup.

    A big congratulations to our boys in the EPL and beyond…
    I wish you many more better outings in all your new season’s adventure.

    Wait o! Who will tell me that currently Calvin Bassey doesn’t deserve to be in the super eagles call-up much more than Jamilu Collins na?

    Make una watch and pass message to Rohr in case:https://youtu.be/oa2_GxsrlDo

    With the rapid growth and development of Bassey as a modern day LB, sooner than later bigger clubs will be queuing for him…tell rohr that Bassey is too sweet to loose mehn!

    • Chima E Samuels 3 years ago

      Those passes are insanely genius and with ease. The coach will overlook him for Collins, Rohr doesn’t know how to make an exciting team.

    • Calvins crosses made all the difference in this game. He should be in the super eagles team not even as an understudy but as a challenger to the left full back position. I just hope he doesn’t need international clearance to play for the super eagles. I really admired his combination with aribo in this game. Hope he wants to play for Nigeria as well.

    • pompei 3 years ago

      Calvin Bassey and players like him are the key to unleashing Onuachu. If Onuachu is selected to start a game, Bassey would be a good selection for that game too, for the obvious reason that he will provide good crosses. And Onuachu is one of the best in the world at converting crosses. Not so good in other areas, but converting crosses is the one thing he is EXTREMELY GOOD at.
      Bassey should be in the SE challenging Sanusi for that left back jersey.

  • Chima E Samuels 3 years ago

    Nigerians doing wonders at clubsides, but watch how Coach Rohr will dismantle them on national duty.

  • NaijaEaglesFan 3 years ago

    Mr. James Agberebi, Verdy scored in the 41th minutes of the game. I guess the referee ended the first half right after he scored and the entire second half was played in “FOUR ” minutes. “Journalist!!!.”

    How can people depend on you for news and information with this kind of report?

  • Charles 3 years ago

    Guys did you see ahmed musa wonderful goal, Nigeria guys doing wonder now and I hope they continue with this form

    • Armed Musa with a terrific goal…..he was named in the starting line up and that shows you his fitness level….he troubled the opposition defence with his pace throughout the game…..At least he is playing for European team and his fitness will improve alot…..Go Musa you can do it.

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      And they told us Ahmed Musa was finished….bloody religious bigots and racists….LMAOOoo.

      Good way to celebrate a return to European football for Musa. Not only did he start, he also played all of 90 minutes, ran the opponents ragged and smashed in the winning goal. Another dream debut if you ask me.

      People who want to kick Ahmed Musa out of the national team should pls go and sharpen their cutlasses harder, because they’ll have to behead him outrightly to achieve their hate-filled agendas.

      • @drey nobody hates musa….we all love him and appreciate his contribution to the national team but the national team is bigger than anyone and we love our national team more than we love musa….All we asked for was for him to move to a top European club and earn his invitation inorder to set example to others that rules are rules no matter the player involved…. how is that hatred?….is zaidu not a northern Muslim why didn’t we complain about him?…. please don’t bring tribal and religious sentiment into this forum it makes me sick in the stomach….If Musa was playing in Porto like zaidu and making the national team would we complain?…..It’s wrong for him to be clubless/attached to Kano pillers and be making the national team list continuously and we preach to the younger aspiring players that they most play in a top5 league and be a regular before they can get a callup…..It’s wrong let us call a spade a spade we all love Musa but Musa is not greater than the national team of Nigeria….

    @Akp… Your hand dey up!

    Meanwhile @Dr.Drey… How far with Victor Ikpeba missing caps?

    Zeus… Saturngod of CSN… this one assignment is taking you forever o!

    We will be patient… boys are not in haste for research outputs.

    Meanwhile you deleted my comment even today listing links that Ikpeba never played against Sweden in 1994 and neither against Colombia also… Lol.

    If you open your mouth say him play I go post am again.

    Try me…

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      Bloody desperate liar…. the Satan of CSN.

      I already responded to your post with FAKE NAMES and FAKE LINES-UPS already….LMAOOO. Out of your desperation to defend your lie, you sheepishly and stupidly posted a link with fictitious names and line ups…..LMAOOOo…just to try to chalk off Ikpeba’s caps to suit you lie that he went to USA 94 with 2 caps.

      As shameless as you are, instead of crawling into you shack to resume sniffing your poop, you still brought it the matter up here to disgrace yourself further….I already responded to your post of desperation…..Ikpeba went to USA 94 with 2 caps indeed….LMAOOooo.

      Mumu rushed to post the link without double checking on the names in the FAKE LINEUPS……LMAOOooo…thinking he will chalk of 2 more caps the way he attempted to chalk off the ove vs Georgia……LMAOoooo

      Post the link here again and disgrace yourself further.

      Ahmed Musa is already out there shoving sand and grass into your mouth…..LMAOOooo. When next you see him wearing the captains armband, in a SE jersey, hang yourself over your balcony.

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      Your lies are getting too much for CSN to bear…..even the website cannot take it anymore…that is why your posts aren’t going through…..LMAOOOo. I have zero connection with CSN aside from being a regular reader. I dont control their site….LMAOooo

      4 straight days of loudmouth telling lies, failed to substantiate a single statement from his gutter of a mouth….and you think the website wouldn’t start rejecting your posts…? LMAOOoo.

      The pollution you bring into this forum with you is worse than the urine smell of a he-goat. I wouldnt blame the site if its refusing to accept comments from your dirty mouth.

  • Super Eagles players setting Europe on fire with goals and great performances.
    Frank onyeka, etebo, ndidi playing full ninety minutes in midfield for their respective teams. Aribo was also in form playing very well in creative midfield, linking well with Calvin bassey.
    Denis starting and scoring his first premiership goal. So happy for him. I hope he continues in this frame of mind. I hope he uses this opportunity to relaunch himself. The premiership is there to accept him if he can raise his game and perform at the highest level each time he gets the opportunity. Good game for etebo and ekong.
    I dont know if success has left the team on loan or not but wherever he is I wish him all the best.
    Iwobi came on in the second half of his clubs match and made the difference.
    The eagles are flying in the premiership.
    Next week, we will be reviewing super eagles players performances in the serie A, I cant wait.

    • Charles 3 years ago

      They all started well, I hope they all continue this form

    • Just read that onyeka was substituted later on in the match. But he held his own and gave a good account of himself.

  • Charles 3 years ago

    Even Paul onuachu scored today, I hope they keep doing well like they are doing now, up super eagles
