    Nigeria is blessed with arrays of good players that selection might just be the coach’s problem. Hopefully the lad would find a regular place on coach Rohr’s first 11 list. Goodluck lad.

  • Footballfanatic 3 years ago

    Completesports…….. Nigerian born bawoo.????

  • Nobody is asking Rohr or Pinnick what’s up with this guy’s supposed switch to Nigeria and when he’ll finally be available for us. Seeing him on Rohr’s match day team list, along with a fully fit again Chukwueze, Ejuke, Sanusi will bring back my confidence again.

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      Rather than doing “exclusives” on matters like these, CSN would rather continue to interview their part-time ex-internationals and failed coaches on weekly basis and be rehashing criticisms that have remained baseless, unfounded and lacking in merit year after year.

      I trust Kickoff of old, debutants will be in the SE or SF camp and we wouldnt be served exclusive interviews with them…? Or exclusive interviews with Rohr himself for him to explain to fans why he choses to do things the way he does them…?

      • GLORY 3 years ago

        God bless to you @ Drey. Just all I can say about CSN seemingly be part of an agenda.

      • Exactly @Dr.Drey, these are the things we want to know – action – not too much talk from people who can hardly impact the team at the moment. Talk to people who can make the team stronger and get exclusive scoops from them – Rohr, Pinnick, Adelakun, Agali, direct FIFA sources who’ll give you updates as it is hot. And when these people are mum, put on your investigative journalism gear and do your digging. They can even get to speak with Lookman, Ejaria, Olise etc themselves to save us from unnecessary speculations.

      • @Drey thank you. I missed Complete football of those days. They go as far as travelling abroad to bring us exclusives. I still what they did during USA 94 qualifiers.

        They can’t even dig deep to find out what is happening to lookman, ejaria switch. Too bad. Maybe we need to write mumuni also and dr. Ojeagbase personally to express your concern.

  • Abdul Handsy 3 years ago

    Completesports let’s know what’s happening to his impending switch to the super eagles of Nigeria. Interview the people that matters, the likes of gernot Rohr, Tunde Adelakun and Amaju Melvin Pinnick and stop all this nonsense Post that doesn’t hold water waters…

    They should let us know really what’s happening to this guys switch because we didn’t beg them before they came up and told us that they have filed nationality switch papers….

    Habba! Is it going to take forever before they finally get switched to Nigeria? Which kind of nonsense be dis naaa by dis unproductive and unprogressive Nigerian football administrators..

  • GLORY 3 years ago

    I watched some of the AFRICAN WORLD CUP QUALIFIERS. Brodas, we really need to get on our highest gear, otherwise we might just not be able to compete favourably. The fans, Gernot Rohr, the media n most importantly the football association. Teams are showing no mercy in burning opponents goals be it away from home or right there before home fans. We must understand that a team that scores lots of goals, hardly lose a match. This has been proven over time. So if we continue to struggle to score lots goals, carelessly missing begging chances, then we are just not ready and must stop deceiving ourselves. Again I strongly believe this whole idea, of using club performance to determine invitation is beginning to deceive. Players knowingfully well that a good club performance will guarantee them SE invitation, now tend to give everything to their clubsides and come back strolling into SE game with some very very laid back performances. This, Rohr must take note of, n change the rule, to bring out the beast in these players. Employ the unknown factor in players selection and watch everyone sit up to produce their best performance for SE. At a time Kalu was becoming so recalcitrant but now everyone can see his urgency n desire both for club n country. Why? Because Ejuke from a less fancied league is come in and giving mouth watering performances. Every single player must be made to feel the heat of not lesser than three equally good player breathing down his neck. I was totally disgusted at Moses Simon strolling so so casually to pick balls for throwing, with us haven only managed to score 1 goal; in one of such occasions even asking Nacho who quickly went to get the ball for throwing to leave it while he catwalked towards him. I boiled so much, that honestly, if I was the coach, that will be his last or will make him see he is not better than Nwakeme, Denise, even Victor Moses etc.

    • Footballfanatic 3 years ago

      God bless you for this write up. I think Rohr has to realize that there are some players that are built for national team performances/African football and not just performing for their clubs. Algeria and Morocco have been ruthless in this qualifiers and I watched their last games. To be honest the Algerians are not even as stacked as Senegal or Morocco but make up for that in team cohesion and also taking every single goal scoring opportunity that comes their way like they are playing a final. I don’t think a team that scored 16 goals in the qualifiers will be easy to beat in the play offs.

      I have a feeling we are going to meet either Ivory Coast or South Africa in the play off after we qualify.

    • Great observation @Glory. Watching the highlights of the African qualifiers have been sending chills down my spine. You don’t even know who’s home or away as every team is going for a win and wants to be in Qatar. The last round of qualifiers is going to be bloody and any form of complacency and you’ll have your team clutching at straws. And yes and why does Simon and Iheanacho gets constant playtime when they hardly give 100% like Ejuke?

      • Footballfanatic 3 years ago

        Atleast Simon helps the defence and always falls back but Iheanacho apart from the 2 goals scored against Liberia was match rusty in the last game..

        • I like Iheanacho but recognise that he blows hot and cold.

          You never know which version will turn up.

          • Footballfanatic 3 years ago

            That’s true…. There’s some inconsistencies in his play and that’s probably what Roger’s sees that alot of us don’t. Reason why he comes in as a sub and performs.

    • pompei 3 years ago

      Hahahahahaha! Our big men players, senior men! National camp na vacation time.
      They come to camp to relax and unwind!
      They should enjoy themselves, yes, but they shouldn’t forget they’re on national duty. They are in camp for a serious assignment. Selfies and vlogs can be done, but the seriousness of the occasion needs to be respected!
      I remember that moment when Moses Simon was shouting “leave am, leave am”, and then gave Iheanacho a mean look. Iheanacho kuku left the ball for him. I was also amazed at how casual he was, just traipsing towards the ball as if nothing was at stake. DURING A WORLD CUP QUALIFYING MATCH!
      Our players really need to take the urgency and professionalism up several notches. Not only Moses Simon. EVERYONE IN THE TEAM.

    • Lovely write up @Glory. These are really emergent issues that Rohr has to honestly look into.

      If I had nothing against him, I would have said he’s beginning to have a laissez-faire attitude towards his responsibility in ensuring team cohesion and dedication..

      At this point, even if we wish for Mali or Tanzania, I can tell you here and now that we wouldn’t be assured of victory, let alone trouncing them.

      The overall attitude of our players is generally attributable to Rohr’s sense of urgency or the lack thereof.

      • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

        Wait till your own employer owes you 8 months salaries and 2 years side bonuses and lets see the urgency you will put in doing his work…..LMAOooo

    • @ Glory I thought I was the only one that noticed it……even opening his big mouth to say…… “leave am we dey win”……. Winning a 135th ranked CAR who defeated you 3 days earlier by 2 goals and it’s special and worth running down the clock for?…….Rhor should put in a killer instinct in this players…….Keep scoring no matter the scoreline……..They play according to the scoreline and that’s why we don’t score much and we find it hard to hold on to leads against decent teams.

  • GLORY 3 years ago

    Brodaman, it’s only a pretender that won’t accept that these 6teams; Algeria, Morroco, Senegal, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana n Cameroon are not going to be real,n I mean real threat. These six teams are truly entering into pick period and you can easily see that zest in their play.May God help us.

    • Father Beezy 3 years ago

      You are spot on. There ain’t no pushovers anymore. IT WILL TAKE A MIRACLE FOR EAGLES TO QULAIFY FOR THEW WORLD CUP.

  • Really there is nothing to be scared of. Playoffs come with lots of surprises. A lot of Factors come in. When you win the first leg very well, you change tactics for second leg. Good when you score first in second leg you have a great advantage and that determines what happen next.

    That was just one of the factors.

    You people are also blowing hot and cold with your fears about the playoffs.

    I believe bthe CAR scare is causing it.

    Even with a whole of our team off against Cape Verde we won and even played very well.

    The match against CAR we have a whole midfield off and we were careless. Also nff putting players on the wrong pitch.

    On a good day, man for man our players are one of the best on the continent.

    Maybe the CAR scare came at a good time so that those boys can learn. They were too casual. On a good day, our team can beat any team on rhe continent.

    It’s great if we draw teams apart from Algeria and Senegal but eeven if we do, we can still win. Algeria struggled to beat us at the nations cup. We beat Tunisia and almost beat them in a friendly.

    I am just writing this to put your mind at rest.

    In Simon, though I hate his poor crosses but the change to 352 showed how versatile he can be for eagles.

    Coaches usually like players who can always be defensive. I’d only bhe can improve his crosses, he will be a good fit any day.

    On kelechi, he played the last Match with that injury. He should have been substituted at the end of the first half. I wonder what rohr was thinking. Only God knows what woukr have happened if ejuke had been on the pitch vfor a longer time.

    Rohr needs to stop being too rigid.

  • pompei 3 years ago

    Cameroon and Ivory Coast are in the same group. Only one will make it, but that one will be a dangerous foe.
    Ghana might not make it. SA are currently leading their group with 10 points compared to Ghana’s 9 points. Thomas Partey has been unbelievable for the Black Stars. Scored a fantastic free kick that helped Ghana to an away win against Zimbabwe. Also love their right winger Mohammed Kudus. Very similar to Chukwueze, and has a lovely shot on his left foot. It will be down to the wire between SA and Ghana for the group ticket.
    Senegal may be number one in the African rankings, but Morocco and Algeria are not far behind in quality. In my opinon, I think the most dangerous team in the continent right now is Morocco.
    It will be unfortunate for Africa if any of these 3 do not qualify. They are quality sides.
    Mali is the surprise team for me. Fantastic football. And their attack is DEADLY. In the Afcon qualifiers, Algeria LABOURED HARD at home to squeeze out a one nil victory against Mali, thanks to a Mahrez goal. Mali are a tough, tough side!
    Apart from Tanzania, all the other teams are quality. They are hungry, and the final round will be a survival of the fittest. With NFF ONIGBESE not helping matters, it is up to Rohr and the players to ensure that we compete in Qatar next year.
    But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. We still need to avoid defeat in Liberia, and take care of the Blue Sharks in our last group game.

    • I think you meant B.Faso; Mali isn’t in the same group with the Fennecs.

      • pompei 3 years ago

        Actually, Massimo10, I was referring to the friendly played in preparation for the Afcon qualifiers. I believe I mentioned that in my comment. Mali and Algeria played a friendly on June 6th.
        As you correctly said, B/F and Algeria are in the same group in the world cup qualifiers. Interestingly, B/F, another good side, held Algeria to a 1-1 draw when they clashed in September. B/F, like Algeria, also have 10 points, and could actually eliminate Algeria if they can beat them in the return leg in Algeria. Possible, but unlikely. Algeria have a far superior goal difference, therefore all they will need at home is a draw.
        So it seems that this Algeria side struggles against quality teams, but will crush weak teams.

      • pompei 3 years ago

        You’re right, Massimo10. The way I mentioned it in my comment is misleading. Algeria and Mali did not play an Afcon qualifier. It was a friendly. Thanks Massimo10.

    • Have you forgotten that north African teams usually struggle in world cups?

  • I hope we can stop expecting players like danjuma and tomori to play for Nigeria now since they have both been called up by Holland and England respectively.
    So I guess we can now focus on some other player who will use us to get the attention of their national team coach.

  • I hope after Musa had successfully completed his 100 caps, his national team calls will be limited. You see, players like Musa, Shehu and Omeruo are good but they are not the best for us. I believe we can do better.
    The only reason why we still invite Musa is cos of his experience. If the likes of Victor Moses and Odion Ighalo that are still very active out there can stay away from the team, I expect him to do the same and with Balogun, Ekong in the team, we have enough leaders. For Shehu, they will be saying cos he can play multiple positions. Now lets break it down. Shehu as a right back, we have Aina, Ebuehi,Awaziem and Akpoguma then as a defensive Midfielder, we have Indidi,Onyeka, Etebo and now Bonke So we don’t really need him around.
    Let’s go for players like Lookman, Ejaria (A left footed and can hold on to the ball). For world cup, we need not to be managing some players. We need our best legs.

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      So which one of Ndidi, Onyeka, Etebo and Bonke can play comfortably at Right back…? NONE

      And which one of Aina, Ebuehi, Awaziem and Akpoguma can play comfortably in defensive midfield…? NONE

      That is what we call comparative advantage. That is what makes shehu to be considered time and again.

      Give me another player who is very comfortable playing at both RB and DM and we can tell Shehu ‘thank you, it was nice doing business with you’

      • @Dr Drey, I think the question supposed to be, whom can Shehu bench among those right backs I listed up there and whom can he bench among the defensive midfielders? My point up there is, we have more than enough in those two positions, natural players that can play those positions perfectly so we don’t need to experiment. When we have 4-4 options in those areas,there’s no need for one player to be wasting the slot of other good players on the bench. Don’t pretend as if you didn’t understand me.

        • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

          If you have taken note, Shehu has of late been more on SE lists for contingency reasons, sometimes on standby, only to be drafted in when withdrawals start popping in. In the September window all your 4-4 options suddenly became unavailable and we had to risk not having a right back and/or midfield substitute vs Cape Verde. If Shehu had not been invited to the squad then, who would have shored up the side of the pitched where he filled in…?

          Similarly last year away to Sierra Leone, we ran out of capable defensive midfielders when etebo was been overran in midfield until shehu can in for him when he got injured and stabilized our midfield. Where was your 4-4 options then…?

          Shehu may not be able to bench any of the 4-4 options, but he sure slots in perfectly to deputize for any of them in any of both positions anytime he is called upon.

          Once again give me another player who is very comfortable playing at both RB and DM and we can tell Shehu ‘thank you, it was nice doing business with you’

          Dont be shocked to see him on the plane to Cameroon due to his versatility that often comes in handy when we are in crises situations.

  • Sunnyb 3 years ago

    I think Awaziem can play both,

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      That’s the problem….. you “think”, but we “know” and we have “seen” at all national team levels (U20, CHAN, U23, SE) and also at his club omonia, that Shehu plays both effortlessly. Ask Awaziem when he last was a DM, he will tell you 7 years ago when he was still playing in Elkanemi jnrs.

  • Derrick 3 years ago

    Rohr and Amaju sucks..immediately Ghana changed their coach and brought back Milovan Rajevac,their play changed.Afcon will expose SE further

    • Dr. Drey 3 years ago

      In order words, we should go and bring back Oliseh or we should go and bring back lagerback…? Ghana is now your role model.

      The last time I checked Ghana was in 2nd spot when they sacked Akunnor and they are still in 2nd spot now that they’ve hired Rajevac. Are they now playin tiki taka under him or is Zimbabwe beyond a team Ghana can defeat home and away…???

      The last time I also checked, we have topped our group since day 1 of the qualifiers and we are still topping it with 2 points at the moment……So what exactly is your point….? Sack Rohr for topping his WCQ group…???

      Afcon can only expose the SE further because we even qualified in the first place. When we didnt qualify 3 times in 4 consecutive AFCONs, there was nothing to expose. Let the AFCON come and expose the SE….LMAOOoo…as if it is only 2 days camping the team will have before heading to the said AFCON

  • Ayphillydegreat 3 years ago

    Great analysis guys. Obviously, there are tough roads ahead but I still believe in the SuperEagles to come out trumps. Like @Christian ministry said the loss at home to CAR might just be a blessing that it happened now to let the players know that glory is not a given. You have to fight for it and I hope the players are getting the message. On the African continent Senegal, Algeria and Morocco are truly looking like favorites to progress to the WorldCup. However, the SuperEagles always have the pedigree over those teams anytime we face off in global qualifiers.

    Man for man I think we are up there in terms of personnel. We will have at least two weeks to get together before the AFCON. Therefore. I think we should be battle ready by the time we get to Cameroon. I will be more wary of any of Ghana and South Africa or any of Ivory Coast and Cameroon in the final playoff round to the WorldCup than any of Senegal, Algeria, Morocco, Egypt or Tunisia. But first we must get a good result in Accra Sports stadium on November 11 away to Liberia to see how far this team have come.

    Moreover, we are missing some really key players at the moment. Ndidi, Iwobi and Chukwueze including Etebo. That’s pretty much a third of the first 11. We’ve found some capable deputies in Onyeka, Ejuke, Bonke and Awoniyi over the last two windows. However, the search for more creative spark in the midfield continues. I really hope Oliseh plays for Nigeria, but I don’t want to talk about players who haven’t made up their mind therefore, I will like Rohr to call up Ejaria if truly he’s been cleared by FIFA to play for us. There’s also Lookman on the horizon(another player I think can also give us a creative spark). Options aplenty let’s just continue to wish them an injury free season.

    • Super Eagles being our representatives are desirous of our support, we have no other country than this. God bless Nigeria.

    • pompei 3 years ago

      If we can rely on this article, it seems Chukwueze will be available in November.
      I also would love to see Amoo get in there and strut his stuff.
      A lefty with ball sense and an eye for goal. Where some of our current midfielders are busy making back passes, Amoo, like Ejuke will take the fight to the opponent. Courageous, forward-moving player. I fear Sweden may move for him if we don’t. I hear Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a huge fan of Amoo over there at Hammarby.
      Let’s hope for the best.

  • Shehu is the new john ogu. Always on the list but rarely on the pitch

  • Derrick 3 years ago

    When it comes to Rohr, you are double standard. If it was local coach you will be the number one critics.If super eagles gives you joy then I have nothing to say to you.

  • Lookman, Ejiara, Denis and Amoo are needed in the national team now, to enhance our preparation for the world cup. Especially a player like Amoo. Rohr needs to invite him to peg him to Nigeria, before he switches nationality to another country, just as England did to Abraham and Tomori.
