    Complete sports where in the write up did Coach Houghton vows? Just a mere of where he came from. Anyways, Coach Eguavoen and Amuneke please take note LOBATAN.

    We love Ghana, they are our brothers. They are going to up their game and roar like bull dogs and do everything to qualify after shamefully exiting the AFCON at the group stage.

    However, unfortunately for Ghana, they are meeting the wrong opponent in the Super Eagles who will eventually qualify and storm the world Cup next year to create explorts. The Nigerian squad is over-loaded very good players and the only weak link is in the area of goal keeping.

    Ghana cannot stop Nigeria from qualifying.

      Same way we were bragging against CAR and Tunisia. Atleast the team has no excuse not to qualify now.I hope the coaches do their homework. Who else notices that the super eagles loses most times when they begin to brag alot and wins when nobody gives them a chance.

        Bragging is part of sports, my dear. Consider boxing: if the stern weigh-in stares, flexing of huge biceps, the swagger into the box, and pre-match bragging are taken off, the package becomes sterile and colourless. During the last WC Messi boasted that they were going to Russia to win the WC. They didn’t win and the stars did not fall.

        I’ll add my own. If Osimhen is injury-free, the SE will surely reach the QF in Qatar!!! Sounds very musical: quarter-finals in Qatar.

    This man knows what he is doing by first of all keeping the Nigerian center back (troots ekong) on bench since the lad return from Afcon to make him not fit for the match against chana, being his country home and he has been contacted to assist chana to win Nigeria . Your plan would fail

  • Where is the vow in his statement? Article of deception.
