      Man of the match should be Moses Simon. The guy destroyed the Egyptian from playing forward. For he kept them all in their care

    Some Complete Sports analyst said Iheanacho was a bad player but Ighalo is a Superstar. I will start posting links if you don’t apologize or better still shut the fuck up for life.

    Awoniyi, Iheanacho are born winners check from u17 level. Especially Iheanacho for my Ighalo’s absence is a Blessings in disguise.

    Congratulations to the lads, maximum respect, my own man of the match is Moses Simon, and infact the team. Congratulations.

  • Imagine Gernot Rohr’s comment earlier before the Egypt vs Nigeria match;

    ‘No players in Manchester, Liverpool, Chelsea’ – Rohr insists Ndidi, Iheanacho not yet Eagles stars…

    Can you see that G.Rohr is low in confidence & self-believe?

    Where was Chelsea before Tuchel took over from Lampard and lifted the Champions league Trophy?

    Rohr depends only on Club stats (gather and play), nothing else…

    G.Rohr needs to re-school himself on Coaching under Eguavoan aka Cerezo. (More grace sir, even though I wanted another indigenous Coach).

    ‘Dr Drey'(whom I usually call hypocrite, lolz) should equally learn new logic today and add new version of wisdom to his analysis and arguments here and there including Tayo, Ben, etc.

    Up Super Eagles!!!

    Kudos to Kelechi Iheanacho aka “senior man kels” (Rohr must learn how to call your name better from today, lmao)!

    Kudos to Simon Moses (The one Rohr almost rendered toothless turning him to a defender in fear).

    Kudos to Zaidu for keeping Salah quiet!

    Kudos to Ndidi (World class)!

    Kudos to Aribo (Assist), Aina (pure class), Omeruo, Awoniyi, Chukwueze, Ekong, Maduka Okoye (for the one-on-one save vs Salah) and others who came in and the bench and kudos to the entire Coaching crew and SE staff!!!

    One love Africa!

  • Youthful exuberance will always carry the day. Playing in Top leagues aswell. All those who were saying Ighalo is better than Awoniyi and Iheanacho. Oya use this opportunity to redeem yoursefs.

    AUGUSTINE EGUAVOEN YOU ARE X100 OF ROAR. YOU HAVE PROVED THAT THE PLAYERS HAD ALSO LOST FAITH IN Rohr and stopped playing for him.. but i will urge you to finish the job you have started after this Afcon and rid the team of wasted legs and space. I.e. you know. I am smiling from ear to ear thinking of this squad even becoming stronger with some key additions i.e. Osimhen, Dennis, Lookman and Amoo as well as Victor Moses yes. Guys word has it he us coming for the March Knockouts guys we are on the right track and you know what. I saw today that this team will take some stopping as we strengthen game to game. Up SE

    Oya all those who said Ighalo is better than Iheanacho and Awoniyi ahow your face and apologise biko.
