    I hope we are not going to loose this match.

  • Chiffo 6 years ago


    Even Uganda with a nameless white coach can win SE in Nigeria?
    Wonders shall never end.
    And who says we don’t need a white man as our coach? At least the one with a name, Big Sam of Bolton wanderers and now of West ham United.
    When will this madness stop.
    Is this part of the Bad luck?

  • pls what is wrong with the super eagles? Uganda beating us in Uyo that means we are going down on fifa ranking this time.

  • ……like Keshi like Amokachie. Pretenders. Amateur coaches. Will continue to get worse for Nigeria as long as we don’t want to do the right thing about getting a standard coach for the Eagles.Needles to say we are already out of the 2017 Nations cup because we can’t qualify for the African showpiece with this kind of self-destructive approach.

    Even, white coach can’t do anything to the problem Eagles is currently facing now. If you guys is in doubts, let the NFF brings in their best coach. However, the solution to the problem is Manu Garba. Therefore, I didn’t expect much from yesterday match though. Because, they just trained a day before the match and we were expecting miracle? Hun? Sorry, it doesn’t work that way. Hopefully, South Africa won’t beat them on Sunday. God bless Nigeria!

    What a shame, a real disgrace for the super eagles How can uganda come dawn to Nigeria and beat Nigeria with all the so call team we have, no coach no tactis our junior team are far Better than this so call super eagles.

  • When would super eagles be supper indeed?My own candid opinion is this.NFF should begin to work new Super Eagles from the present crop of Eaglets, flying eagles and under 23 teams.I believe doing this will give Nigeria a formidable team of the present and future. At present I don’t see the present eagles going far.
    Also, Eagles captain should be thinking of leaving the stage now.A new shut stopper is needed.

  • wisdom victor 6 years ago

    super eagles were z moses, odemwingie, ameobi, our chelsea mikel and others? Let’s get them back and stand our feet to win those small small countries

  • Emeka Easy 6 years ago

    What make a team to play better is coach.SE need better coach.Amokachie is a football analyst not a coach likewise keshi.Amodu is better just upgrade our football rating.Do not be surprise what will happen to SE on sunday.

  • Ebola has already captured nigeria football. Ordinary uganda beat super eagle. Very sorry for nigeria football

  • Kaziba Noah 6 years ago

    Uganda is a strong team which has made history over big countries like South Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, Senegal, Togo. So Nigeria is just a walk over for the Uganda cranes. Ooooooooyeeeee……

  • Nigeria among the nations which are destroying African football.Thy bribe Senegalese referees in their lousy Abeokuta stadium and disallow genuine goals.Uganda is very much stronger than the so called super eagles.
