    Nigerians should stop overrating and over-hypping the Super Falcons. They cannot beat better and higher-ranked teams like USA, Canada Mexico or Colombia. Let us go to the World Cup, do our best and come home empty handed as usual. Stop using tgr cosch as a scapegoat. The material he is eorking with has no quality

  • But small country like Zambia will beat us but we can’t beat USA Canada and so on nonsense post
