  • I am not sure if I will be watching this important match being that it is Oliseh’s first match with plenty of new faces. Will Keshi be watching it too? If it is the KESHI I know he will be wishing Oliseh and the Super Eagles well. Who will not like to watch his country in a competition like AFCON. It makes it more interesting. So every NIGERIAN will wish Oliseh and the boys well. Thanks to completesportsnigeria for this live minute by minute blog just like all other reputable websites. This is the way I want CS to operate. You have come a long way.

  • augustine 3 years ago

    i dont thinl dis math will be a easy win coz d eagles are givin taifa 2 much chance 4 attack

  • Is Carl Ikeme replacing Vincent Enyeama? Many of these our boys are unfit. Very unfit. We still need Victor Moses, Ighali, Martins, maybe Mikel. With this type of play, we have no hope of qualifying for the AFCON. Sincerely speaking.

  • What’s score now

  • Okoh cornelius 3 years ago

    Not a poor start, there is room for improvement.

  • obidaddy 3 years ago

    Come what may,the presence of mikel obi$victor moses is highly $ will always be needed in the team.its not easy for a player to make cfc bench under the watch$payroll of mourinho$Abrah.if mikel was to be in arsenal or any other team apart from man city in England,e will4sure be playing week-in-week-out. No sentiment,quote me any were.
