    After that come back sierra leone did to Nigeria,i lost hope in our coach.Thank God ejaria and ademola lookman had been cleared by FIFA to represent Nigeria.NFF should sit up and not allow Rohr to destroy us

      Cape Verde won’t be easy and it’s high time Rohr sit up. At 4-3 during the Sierra Leone match…..most coaches would have parked the bus to end the match a win, same thing happened with Argentina at the world cup, same thing with Algeria in the dying minutes, and you can see some kind of lackluster technical pattern in closing down games that we were supposed to take. His Substitutions and their timing is weird.

    • @Samuel. Has he destroyed you before. Cameroon list to cape Verde…they did not say they were destroyed. You want us to win all games. Even guardiola with all the best players does not win all games. Common relax. The last two friendlies are just the ways friendlies are to be prosecuted. Leave out some regulars and try new players to see. We achieved that…for get about the results.

    @christian Ministry,i love Nigeria Football and as it is now we are going to drop points when the new fifa ranking is release.Our coach keeps making avoidable erros in matches.I bet you we should forget winning afcon and world cup qualifying is around the corner.The coach has no pattern and the best thing is for NFF to scout a sound Assistant for him.

  • The problem is not even cape Verde .eagles would ve drew with some countries be4 the game with cape verde makin it an easily ride for the cape men to qualify with with a lost to Nigeria. Away. Lol

    The problem of Oga Rhor and his crew havn’t any vision and creativity to carry or develop Super Eagles to the new high or new era,Rhor lacks creativity, organization , depth in football matches, the evidence in this match between SE versus Sierra Leon, Algeria match in Afco final in Egypt 2019, the match between SE versus Argentina in World Cup in Russia 2018; Oga Rhor had not dealt with these matches in genius mentality that could have succeeded SE in these tasks; Oga Rhor should have played defensive style from midfield then push Eagles to attackt ; also in this tactic he should have played with three defensive midfielders with combative,pressing, ferociousness football,also with proper coveries of the foes’s key players to strop then to prevent thier dangerousness,just like right winger of Sierra Leon who had threaten SE goalkeeper; Mohrez Algerian striker who had been free without any recovery ,conterol,tackling then he had scored tow goals; Messi Argentian player who also had made a huge panic against SE then he had scored agoal with defensive lapses as Mohrez had scored from the right back or center back William troost Ekong who has many lapses he commits them;so Rhor can apply new pattern or style of playing depends on defensive one then push his Eagles to the attackt,this role can do it Aribo, Ejaria, Iwobi,Billing by assitance of Ndidi or Alhassan Ibrahim or Novo or Etebo or Samsun Tijani; attackting role can do it tow strikers or one on reckon of tactic and player’s line-up just like tow strikers as(Osimhen,Iheanchu) or (Osimhen,Onuachu or Sadiq Umar or Simmy Nwankwo) or Osimhen alone or Sadiq Umar alone or Onuachu alone…
