    Good line up ….. it’s doable… big up super eagles…. go beat the desert foxes…

  • Our lineup looks great! Goodluck to you guys

  • Well, the backbone of the lineup look good and solid to me, going back to the old and trusted except for said who have been more active than coins so far this season, defeders are the spine of every team, the midfield? Taking into consideration of inability of other established stars of the team like ndidi, He has gone for form and in attack? Well it doesn’t get better than kalu and chukwueze, Paul now has a good opportunity to impress everyone about his value to the team, good luck guys, hoping for the best.

    Line up is good, i hope we get to see Alampasu and Ejuke in the second half plus any other meaningful changes required at the course of the game.

    • Wow! Intresting! So two players; Tyrone and Onuachu who came in at the last minute to replace other players not available made it straight to the starting eleven. Such a crowd of talent at our disposal. I wish the Super Eagles victory tonight. Like the Sport Minister said, only victory is good enough.

    What a line up from the coach. Seriously Rohr is not taking this match like an ordinary friendly. With this kind of line up am seeing Algeria’s unbeaten strick coming to an end this evening. Good luck guys @[email protected]

  • God bless Nigeria

  • Match link or ppv pls.

  • What is Nigeria playing ?…Algeria leading at the moment 1 nil, their coordination and interchange is very poor, and not putting Algeria under any pressure when they lose the ball!!

  • Well I knew is not going to be effective on the midfield he should had played Agu instead

    • Agu was playing from the start. Wilfred Ndidi and Joe Aribo are key players in any team. Add Peter Etebo to the mix and thats the reason our mid field is suffering


    Atleast the hype about ONUACHU scoring 8 goals in 6 matches has finally come to end….

    The hype that MIKEL AGU is this and that is dead and buried….
    That guy is just an upgrade of FERGOR OGUDE…. Only good at commiting unnecessary fouls…

    Now we know those that deserve to be in the super eagles….

    Our midfield still remain NDIDI-ARIBALL-ETEBO-IWOBI any time any day in case they ask you….

    MADUKA OKOYE is the man in charge, tell the rest GK to stay clear….

    We’ve gotten a left back in ZAIDU SANUSI….

    EBUEHI is a gem….

    The days of TROOST EKONG are numbered….

    Don’t ever count BALOGUN out….
    He may be down and out of form, but he’s not necessarilly out; he’s still that mount EVAREST….

    one day monkey go go market but e nor go come back….
    It has finally happened;

    always coming from a goal down is not always adviseable….
    We’ve learn a learson now….

    Haters where are u….

    Show us your urgly faces…

    I come in war…..
