Emmanuel Dennis netted a penalty in injury time for Nigeria’s 10th. Terem Moffi scored twice and Moses Simon, Oghenekaro Etebo and Ademola Lookman were the other goal-scorers.

    Eguadiola made me to start commenting on Complete sports after I almost destroyed my TV in frustration. I needed an outlet to vent my frustration. I was also disturbed that no journalists were asking him analytical questions about his tactics. So I decided to contribute intelligently in my comments.
    In the 21st century of internet communication their are many sources that can provide knowledge about tactics and formations.
    To help anyone interested I list some sites and channels that I’ve found useful below. I’ve resolved to do this everytime I comment.

    • Equavoen was given a pass because he sold the idea of playing like the 1994 team which sounded great to them. Not knowing football has moved on and teams are now way smarter. I was actually surprised and embarrassed how his team was neutralized by Tunisia and Ghana who are both average teams. The kind of football Nigeria plays is no longer feasible. A team will need to be 200% superior to other teams to play like that.
