    Oya O!
    Where are those Crocodiles?

    Lets gooo!

    Up SE
    Up Nigeria!
    Ire O!

  • This starting line up is exciting. Strong strikers, resourceful wingers, intelligent midfielders, solid defenders propped up by a reliable goalkeeper.

    What else do you want?

    • Na so una talk against Ghana and couldn’t score. Abeg park well

      • We played well against Ghana in Abuja but the players just didn’t have the rub of the green on the day.

        Uzoho is a much improved goalkeeper now.

  • Jide Dola 6 months ago

    Una still dey this forum dey believe in this coach. Make him dey loose big match and average match dey win little match, dey play 2-1 for small match ahahah

    • Field Marshall. General. Sir Johnbob 6 months ago

      Jide Dola-

      My guy, leave the mumu’s with their big big English
      Na here some wan take chop recognition based on yeye yarn lool and as for stubborn pasaeiro, I am not a fan!

      But as a Nigerian, I can only support my team through thick and thin and that is as far as my support goes – I am not in support of the blockhead manager, basket case goalie and many of the starting line up like mumu Lookman!

      We just siddon dey look my guy!

  • Link please

  • As I had always suspected with Peseiro and Eguavoen before him, Owngoalnigeria.com actually referred to Peseiro’s formation for today’s match as 4-2-4.

    This is very interesting.

    Well, Eguavoen’s 4-2-4 took the Afcon by storm before the wheels came off against Tunisia in the second round.

    Let’s see how far 4-4-2 cum 4-2-4 will serve Peseiro.

  • onwajunior 6 months ago

    Almost 30mins and the game is competitive

  • onwajunior 6 months ago

    Hey!!! Awoniyi oh!!! Some players sha will soon play themselves out of the team

    • Entire 45minutes I didn’t see him
      On the pitch and some
      Pple make us believe he is better than even osimhen. Awo and iwobi playing trash so far, but I’m sure of improvement in second half. Uzoho keep us in the game so far with that save.

  • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

    Awoniyi and lookman might make us pay the price for all this nonsense they are playing.

    • Respect is reciprocal 6 months ago

      Why only Awoniyi and lookman . What has Iheanacho and iwobi played. Even Boniface has not been excellent. So far lookman has flashes of intelligence. The best two players to me is Collins and Osai. 

      • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

        Aina will create danger than Collins Iheanacho is the only real threat in the attack. Awoniyi is a shameless player missing sitters because he can not be patient, lookman can not use his final ball well…. You are watching nonsense!!!!

        • Thought I was the only one thinking that way. No sense of urgency at all. Same way against Ghana.

          @deo, please what improvement did you see. Because he was troubled once, that’s the reward for more calla up. That must be a joke.

          @chima why scape goating Awoniyi and look man. What of iwobi and onyedika playing rubbish and including ihenacho. Abeg this kids needs to play for the flying eagles.

          • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

            Is it iwobi that will score chances that Awoniyi and lookman is messing around with? You people should be watch back if Tv!!!

    • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

      Collins that is always looking for back pass lol you don’t understand football.

  • Lord AMO 6 months ago

    Lookman was extremely selfish there and he has not been good quite frankly.  It was very lazy and inexcusable of him to have been offside following one of the corners too

  • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

    I said it the last time that yakubu passed the touch to Awoniyi that is why I don’t rate him when I’m rating SE strikers and some clowns will try to rate him ahead of Iheanacho after Osigoal.

    • Saint Ralph 6 months ago

      Yakubu is still the 3rd leading Nigeria goal scorer of all time, behind only legendary like YEKINI and ODEGBAMI, So what touch are you talking about ? However, people like you will only remember his miss against the Korean. Good thing is your ratings or opinion dont matter. My only suprise here is you are still calling some people Clown, seriously ? go check The YAK stats and you will know who is the real CLOWN is.

      • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

        Get out of my thread you’re clueless that is why you don’t get the point. Dumbass!!!

        • Saint Ralph 6 months ago

          Come on social platform and start disrespecting anybody that is not sharing your opinion, you need to work on yourself bro, your comment here really shows the type of person you are.

        • Common Chima stop doing that. I always love to read your comment. Common stop abusing and cursing at every opportunity. It’s not worth it. Let’s enjoy ourselves here m it’s not war. Those boys are lazy.They are not showing hunger yet they will be paid allowances. Those of us that comment here won’t receive a penny. So why curse and abuse each other

        • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

          Christian ministering I’m not insulting him but some of them will not understand where you’re driving at and they’ll just label you racist because they feel you’re not sharing their views. I’m not blind when a player is messing up and I should be praising him after they want us to believe they are superstars and the best in the Country!!!

        • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

          He is the first to call his father a clown and he knows who the clown is since he came to comment on a match he didn’t watch.

  • JimmyBall 6 months ago

    I dont think these guys are serious… are they waiting for second half to score? They are playing with lackadaisical attitude… Lesotho has more numbers in midfield. Jose Peseiro will not take us anywhere we can have world XI playing for Nigeria and will not win tea spoon…

    • Respect is reciprocal 6 months ago

      Jimmy you are right playing four attackers and two midfielders make us look suspicious at the back . And we are not building our play to score but rather throwing the ball forward aimlessly. With good team we are going to pay for it.

    • Thought I was the only one thinking that way. No sense of urgency at all. Same way against Ghana.

      @deo, please what improvement did you see. Because he was troubled once, that’s the reward for more calla up. That must be a joke.

      @chima why scape goating Awoniyi and look man. What of iwobi and onyedika playing rubbish and including ihenacho. Abeg this kids needs to play for the flying eagles.

    • Chudynak 6 months ago

      You said it all. This coach is very average. I don’t even know what he is playing abi na the players wey no serious. In all, this team may not get us anything at this rate!

  • pompei 6 months ago

    Hahaha, unu dey see wetin dey shele?
    My pipo are tensed up because of Lesotho.
    Let’s hope the 2nd half is better.

  • pompei 6 months ago

    Make unu no vex. Asiko no dey for training 🙂

  • Why are all the shots and headers tame??? Isn’t only Osimhen that has a rocket in his boots?? Even the headers are looking like a back pass. No power.

    Meanwhile African minnows have read the blueprint on how to frustrate Nigeria at home. Play 9 men behind the ball and 1 or 2 upfront. Look for a chance to loop the ball to the line strikers and hit it powerfully. CAR gave them the expo and Guinea Bissau copied it.

  • Greenturf 6 months ago

    We miss Osimhen too much!!
    Iheanacho should move to the centre forward he’s the best shooter after Osimhen.When I saw Awoniyi in the starting lineup i almost pissed myself.
    Iheanacho is the player who can make something happen out of nothing Peseiro should make changes.Simon for Awoniyi 

  • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

    Awoniyi supporters calling us racists how market?

  • agbo chimezie 6 months ago

    Awoniyi this Awoniyi that nonsense! If he likes make him score hundred goals with nothigham forest he’s useless in Nigeria color

    • Respect is reciprocal 6 months ago

      More useful than you calling him useless.what has your almighty Boniface and Iheanacho done. Tribal comments useless talk

      • Sammy 6 months ago

        There’s no tribalism on this forum. Everybody criticizes everybody.

        Taiwo Awoniyi does not play well in a Nigerian shirt. Even in the juinior teams Isaac Promise and Kelechi Iheanacho play ahead of him.

        • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

          Leave the Animal!!!

          • Saint Ralph 6 months ago

            Your best player on the pitch today, you will still come here and abuse him if he didnt perform well in the next game.
            I always thought this platform is only for matured minds? How can you be calling someone an ANIMAL ? just because you`ve got access to the internet ?

          • Mahmud Shuaib 6 months ago

            An average IGBO is loud, lousy, arrogant, uncouth and untrained!

            Make your points without insulting entire strangers.

            Comparing IHEANACHO a persistent, chronic bench warmer to Awoniyi is disrespectful

            IHEANACHO has never top scored for ant Club in his Career

            Awoniyi was top scorer for Mouscroom Union Berlin and Nothingham Forest in 3 different countries

          • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

            Thank God CS gave their opinion about the two players. I will not come down to your ignorance Aboki and his shenanigan that has no idea of proper football.

  • pompei 6 months ago

    Uzoho, please share your match bonus with Deo after the game. Deo don try for you, no be small. Championing your cause on CSN. Abeg break him off a little something as a reward for his hard work.

  • Ndubest 6 months ago

    Am tensed I don’t understand why i should worry myself over nothing. This guys are simply not serious i pray Lesotho does not score with possibly their second chance. I don’t know when we will watch super eagles with peace of mind.

  • Michel 6 months ago

    This formation will expose us at the afcon.we are more balanced when we play a 3 man midfield,awoninyi is a very useless player

    • What makes him useless, don’t come here any tribal comment like chima is about to do. Who is feeding him. Is he meant to go back and be asking for ball. Almighty Boniface is not even noticed on the field. Until you start employing real coaches, not all this journeymen seeking for glory at our expense

      • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

        If the coach like he should leave Yakubu on field I don’t have to mention his other name again.

    • Respect is reciprocal 6 months ago

      As useless as he is he is still more useful than you. None sense 

      • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

        Idiot you think everyone is useless like your family no wonder you don’t believe there are successful people than footballers. Bushman!!!

  • Ayphillydegreat 6 months ago

    See them blaming Awoniyi. The best chance in the first half came from Awoniyi. He passed the ball to Boniface he missed an open net. I don’t know which match some people are watching. 

  • We are not playing that bad but I expect more from
    Iwobi and awo, second half gat better, uzoho having break so far.

  • JimmyBall 6 months ago

    We should go back to playing 4-2-3-1 or 3-5-2 if we must play twin prong attack… modern football is played in the midfield… no team in this day and age can win any tournament or serious match with 4-2-4 or 4-4-2… it is too limiting for the team. May God not allow us concede first in this game because, if that happens we will loose the game.

    • Okey Leonard 6 months ago

      Please where can I watch the match?

    • Legendary 6 months ago

      Ehn ehn meaning we should go back to Rohr’s supposed formation? I thought it was too conservative, lol. You don dey play proper team you don dey realize. No be everybody be Sao Tome.

  • Sportradio88.0 fm 6 months ago

    A good player will not necessarily be a good coach. I said eagles shud stabilize their defense 1st before going all out to get a win … Thank God uzoho was alert to stop that hot ball .. dat could have been the only goal in the first half…this is a game eagles need not struggle to win .just a good formation. 4 5 1 could easily have won them the game in the 1st 30 minutes,but Dem dey go all out . with 4 2 4 . .well if u give me 11 boys for from high school. I will only tell them to frustrate this eagles with 6 3 1 and the game wil be over.in 70 mins .den counter Dem wil 1 goal .end the game. This eagles can’t face Burundi or mosambique ooo

    • Thanks a lot Sports Radio for your analysis on Uzoho which you said with aPlOMb.

      You know quality goalkeepers when you see one.

  • Omo9ja 6 months ago

    You guys can watch the match on YouTube.

    However, if you expect anything from Oga Paseiro’s team, then you are on your own.

    There are no single shots on target and no tactics or what we can input of the coach. NFF themselves are seeing the results. They will get what they deserve.

    If Lesotho gets a chance to score, that is it.

    Are we still the favorite to win the Afcon with Oga Paseiro and his team that could not put one or two passes together?

    O am less concerned because I have said it all before now. NFF and the gaffer will sink Super Eagles.

    Again, aside from Osimhen, Dessers is uncompareble to none of the strikers in the Super Eagles. Are we not seeing that today?

    Lookman is a selfish player. The gaffer needs to look for qualities in players but not the club you play for some time.

    Poor performance so far. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • I won’t even respond Pom-pous contributors. I will take the high road. No be moimoi to keep clean sheet against Lesotho in 45 minutes.

    Na person wey know, know.

    • pompei 6 months ago

      Hahaha, give yourself a pat on the back for holding mighty Lesotho to a 0-0 draw after 45 minutes. Don’t forget to collect your share of Uzoho’s match allowie after the game!

  • pompei 6 months ago

    Awoniyi has joined Onuachu in the USELESS club.
    If Boniface is not careful, he too will be useless today.

  • pompei 6 months ago

    Make unu no worry. Game still dey.

  • Awoniyi has been excellent in getting in great positions. Luck hasn’t been on his side.

  • pompei 6 months ago

    Lesotho has scored. Which way Nigeria?

  • Lesotho 1 Nigeria 0

      • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

        Wizard you think God will fail us wait until Ghana looses tomorrow or whenever because nobody is even thinking about them.

  • No cause for alarm a beg. This Lesotho goal is just a minor bump on the road. The Super Eagles will now unleash fire and fury on Lesotho.

    • Jide Dola 6 months ago

      Is painting me that my comment didn’t drop. The comment is just too many I can’t retype it I don’t even know what is making all of you happy. Alonso took over Leverkusen and they moved from 17th to 6th with the same team, were they not playing rubbish before Alonso took over. You people should not worry I will create time for you another day.

  • Dreamers get wake-up call!

  • onwajunior 6 months ago

    Well, no USA Canada and Mexico for Naija. A shame even with increased African representation. Peseiro can continue with his Uzoho and Awoniyi

  • Papafem 6 months ago

    Where are you guys watching the match? Cam you please the link?

  • Paseiro must be fired. Se I no talk am. Na name una just get for this team

  • respect is reciprocal 6 months ago

    This all offensive play in a hurry is not helping us and will not take us anywhere. The coach os the problem of this team

  • Edoman 6 months ago

    Uzohu is a flop, flop, flop. why not use Obasogie is the biggest undoing for Nigeria. No World-cup guys.

  • pompei 6 months ago

    Nigeria is pressing hard sha. Let’s hope they catch a break.
    Lesotho are playing as if they are ready to die on the field. I no blame dem. They too want to go to world cup.

  • Pereira is just a journeyman oyibo wan no carry any tactical acumen. Abeg make unable leave 9ija football. We sliding as far as performance is concern.

  • Just see as the Super Eagles are peppering Lesotho with unspeakable brutality. It’s just a matter of time.

  • Field Marshall. General. Sir Johnbob 6 months ago

    Ajayi’s passing is woeful
    Iwobi might as well had stayed home because he is non-existent (Zero) in this game today
    Lookman is an absolute short 1 and just as terrible as Chukwueze
    Paseiroi needs to be relieved of his duties otherwise he will bring disgrace to Nigeria with his ineptitude and dumbass stubbornness!
    And they shouldn’t forget to bin Calamity Frank ASAP!
    What a hopeless, hapless bunch of non- entities!

  • pompei 6 months ago

    Gooooooaaaaal!!!
    Naija is back!!!

  • prince 6 months ago

    i play to win nigeria

  • agbo chimezie 6 months ago

    The coach have removed two useless players! Where’s Awoniyi and Lookman supporters two useless players that caused us elimination against Ghana here in Nigeria, Nigeria will never learn

    • respect is reciprocal 6 months ago

      Don’t blame people from useless background like you. Lookman was the best player on the field till he was substituted. Your useful Boniface could not score for us but for Ajayi

    • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

      Leave those Villagers that don’t understand football. Collins is the next to go out because he has no final ball aside that shot he played…

      • SESAN 6 months ago

        Oga stop this tribal nonsense you talking about. Collectively everyone is poor so far. Scared for the upcoming Afcon

        • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

          Your senses are deceiving you if you think anyone is tribal. The fact that it’s even noticeable that one tribe is playing nonsense says it all. 

          • Mahmud Shuaib 6 months ago

            IDIOT…that NOTICEABLE tribe scored the only goal whilst your UNNOTICEABLE tribe as usual was pedestrian and shit!

            That Tribe has NIGERIA’S all time top 2 International football HIGHEST goalscorers and their records have stood for over 30 years and counting!

            Go get a life you rude, classless cry cry fish brain of an OKIRIKA seller

    • Mahmud Shuaib 6 months ago

      So says another incurable tribal goat! Did Awoniyi feature against GHANA? The last I remembered, it was your theatrical monkey faced UZOHO who assisted GHANA that day! You have left us alone, now it’s the YORUBAS. Pathetic people

  • pompei 6 months ago

    Some pipo go shit for body today because of tension ooo.
    Lesotho don cause wahala for area.

  • I knew it. I was not worried when Nigeria conceded. It was the wake up call we needed.

    Lesotho are now in trouble because they opened Pandora’s box. Nigeria should have been 6 goals ahead if not for wastefulness.

    • pompei 6 months ago

      Indeed, after the goal, it’s been all Nigeria.
      But possession means nothing if we don’t score.

  • Edoman 6 months ago

    This coach is the worst thing that ever happen to Nigeria. This is a rumor from his home Country that he is a very corrupt man. l don’t know if the rumor is true or not.

    • Edoman, you are criticising a coach that is playing the most attacking brand of football for Nigeria in living memory.

      What else do you want? Don’t you like playing 4 strikers up front?

  • Who came in as our second substitutions

  • pompei 6 months ago

    Does this situation look familiar? This is Tunisia and Ghana all over again.
    Against good defensive sides, na so so struggle.
    ALL WE ARE SAYING, GIVE US ONE GOAAAAAL!

  • All jokes apart, Nigeria need to start well in this world cup qualifiers so a win here is non-negotiable.

    • Sammy 6 months ago

      If we drop points at home to Lesotho, we don’t deserve to go to the World Cup.

  • Sammy 6 months ago

    Bruno is better than Jamilu Collins please…

    If Zaidu is not available its just better to Aina at left back or bring in Bruno if they need a pure left footer to play the role.

    Taiwo Awoniyi should not be starting for Nigeria in a serious game. He may score some goals you don’t expect him to score, but he will for sure miss many sitters.

    And this 4.2.4 formation does not make sense at all – this is exactly the formation Eguavoen played at the nations cup and world cup qualifiers that got us booted out of both competitions.

    • So you are not satisfied that we are blitzing the opposition with 4 strikers? Do you want Nigeria to play like pussy cats or tigers?

    • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

      The formation is not the problem but the problem is the players he uses to dictate play. Iheanacho and Boniface should have started upfront and Simon Tella at the wings. Awoniyi should be used as impact player and not starting for SE because he will do better coming from Bench than starting him to be loosing chances like Yakubu..

  • pompei 6 months ago

    Simon’s cross goes straight into the goalie’s hands. O ma se ooo!

    • And so what? Leave Moses Simon alone my guy and know peace.

      • pompei 6 months ago

        Hahaha, you need a share of Simon’s bonus too?
        Uzoho own never do you?

  • chuks haifa 6 months ago

    A very terrible and bad coach. No more comments

    • A coach that sets his team up with maximum firepower is a bad coach. Let’s chew the cod properly on this matter.

  • Simple as Abc. They don’t deserve to be at the world cup.

  • pompei 6 months ago

    It’s all over!
    A draw is better than defeat. A wake up call for Nigeria.
    We move.

  • Nija no go carry last…lol
    We are waiting for u to win afcon…nonsense!

    • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

      Evil spirit no wonder you economy is sinking. Carry your bad blood out of this space dirty dey smell!!!

            I think you’re a confuse loonie because if you’re on this forum you’ll understand whatever happens here. Just be running your mouth on my thread until you choke.

            My Thread, My Thread, My Thread. This is a public domain bro, nothing in here is “YOURS” If you want a personal thread then open one in your room. Of course I`m on here once in a while and you are a public figure on here, known for two things (Abusive and Disrespectful). Moreover, most of these players you attacking everybody because of are junior to you, making their millions home and away, and you are here spreading everywhere claiming ownership of a thread lol You need to work on yourself bro

          • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

            Another lost soul you’re not making any sense for thinking only footballers earn a solid living. I can only believe your plight has led you to this conclusion and it’s not same everywhere so wake up and rather work on your self before you generalize your situation to others.

  • Footballfanatic 6 months ago

    Lower your expectations….This is an over hyped average team with a below average journeyman lol…..

    • Thank you

    • Respect is reciprocal 6 months ago

      You are wrong this eagles are not over hyped . The most valuable team in Africa can not be over hyped. The system running these players are faulty . Nigeria teams are  bad tactically because the coach is a street hawker . Napoli won the Italian League last season but this season they have been struggling with the same set of players.  Change of coach who is less tactical would alway affect a team no matter how good the team is. Give this our team to Renard Harvard and you will see magic from the players.
      One thing I know is if we fail to qualify for World Cup , it is the NFF officials that will be badly hit because there wont be any money for them to loot.  

  • Omo9ja 6 months ago

    This is terrible to watch. A local coach from Lesotho put up a team to draw Nigeria at the Nigeria backyard while our foreign coach has no solution to break up his tactics. Then NFF is shame for hiring less quality coach for Nigeria.

    Look at the way our players are playing and tell a lot about the current team of ours.

    The Super Eagles of 2000 did not play like this. Very boring football pattern in today’s match. I am not sorry to say this. This coach is not good enough to handle the Super Eagles. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Dennis 6 months ago

      You said any coach can do well with the super eagles except rohr. You championed for Mr no nonsense and he failed. So enjoy this coach

  • Lesotho has never qualified for any major soccer event, Lesotho is ranked 153 in FIFA ranking.. our coach and our keeper are the most useless persons on the surface of the planet.

    • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

      How is the goal the keepers fault Aboki leave here jare!!!

    • Ndubest 6 months ago

      Salah just scored 4 goals in today’s match, but we always make noise of our attackers Osimhen, Awo, boni, lookman, ihenacho, moffi, etc. Even if we add Mpappe, Hallard, kane to this present squad with this nonsense coach nothing will change. If we meet South Africa or even Benin with this formation we may likely lose. I fear the next match against Zimbabwe they are only fortunate Zimbabwe are playing home away from home. This team is a kill joy. Personally i would not be watching the next match to avoid Bp. I just wasted my data today.

      • Respect is reciprocal 6 months ago

        @Ndubest Osi is far below Salah when it comes to being an all round attacker. Salah dribbles well and also a great passer of the ball . He can also play a creative role.  Besides Egypt has better midfield than Nigeria and their coach is not as clueless as our perosoko.

  • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

    December is around the corner this Eagles will end the year ranking below 50 if care is not taken!!!

  • Ako Amadi 6 months ago

    When a coach accepts a pay cut cannot be quality.This Peseiro will kill our football. The corrupt NFF is not aware

  • JimmyBall 6 months ago

    The centre referees are even in shock discussing amongst themselves if this is Nigeria they use to know… I have just five things to share:

    1. Peseiro is not a coach, and should no longer be tolerated but fired immediately. We can continue to hope for the next 100years with Peseiro, he knows next to zero.

    2. We need to begin to invite only hungry players based on merit and form alone like other serious countries do it.

    3. We need to as a country have football identity… how we want to play oriented on midfield play with atleast 5man midfield and never 2man or 4man as our toad of a coach, Mr Peseiro likes to make us believe. We should look for new midfielders.

    4. Paul Onuachu is the cause of our struggle in front of goal in this game.

    5. I am sorry to announce that South Africa is likely to pick the world Cup ticket ahead of us.

    Sack this coach, disband this team and use local players henceforth. No need wasting taxpayers money on a set of unserious overseas based footballers. Nigeria is broke and we do not need a foreign coach paid in dollars likewise overseas based players. Let the CHAN Eagles prosecute the remaining matches to enable us save our Forex! I hope this is clear. A country that is dysfunctional cannot be wasting resources on inviting average overseas based players for football matches!

With local best players in the league not with player come from Europe a day to a big match .it time to go beat Zimbabwe or forget world cup qualifiers.

  • I can bet nija is not going to this world cup. This useless performance? You can insult me, it doesn’t take away the fact that this team is disjointed. No game plan, no direction! Ghana is also going through a similar phase so I have lowered my expectations. Pls Nigerians, this your team is not a top class team, just accept it and stop the bragging

  • UNTIL NIGERIA GET BIG DISGRACE IN FOOTBALL BEFORE THE COUNTRY WILL LOOK FOR GOOD COACH

      Mr rohr .. so u are watching eagles .. u just make me remember 4:4 against sirea Leone and Madagascar and car and even south Africa here . And Argentina in Russia .. so na turn by turn o na paceiro turn o . So if u want another turn .. go beat south Africa. And ur contact with eagles for world cup is 90% sure .. and 70000 dollar waiting.thou i no this is Africa rohr on the net of competesport.

  • I may sound harsh but this coach is half-baked. He sets his team to sweep forward but not how to unlock defenses. That one is left to each player’s initiative. That’s why they run out of ideas once they get to the 18-yard box. That was the best thing about Westerhof. You always could see training ground moves executed on the pitch.

    Paseiro just tells Simon or Iheancho to float a cross into the box and hope someone’s leg finds it. He has no 18-yard game plan. His only tactical plan is high-press and that’s it. Please don’t blame any players. After all, they regularly score in their clubs and are rated high, even though Osimhen is a cut above the rest.

    Ha!Pinnick! Pinnick! Pinnick.

  • Field Marshall. General. Sir Johnbob 6 months ago

    Those criticizing Awoniyi don’t understand nothing about football, go back to sleep! I myself do not respond to nego’s with tribal angles- a dog might as well be barking!
    Peseiro is not good enough! He lacks tactical awareness and an eye for a good footballer and that is very problematic if you are to be a football manager let alone a successful one!
    Peseiro needs to be excused of his duties and Uzoho along with him, they both need to exit the building and mind that the door does not hit them on their way out!
    Lookman MUST never start for us again, maybe from the bench, yes but never a starter. Period! It must always be Moses Simon – neither Lookman nor Chukwueze are good enough to lace Simon’s boot!
    Unfortunately, Iwobi slept through today’s game – he might as well have been on the bench because he brought nothing to proceedings, but mind I said TODAY, he is still a starter in the team, he had an off day today – let’s hope we don’t see any more of those.
    All in all – An off day for the whole team – see how crocodiles came chopped and conquered in our own backyard! With a 1-1 draw, it’s a moral victory for the Ligaunes!
    Peserio and Uzoho OUT!!
    Mtcheeew!

    • Chima E Samuels 6 months ago

      Nobody hate Awoniyi or anyone, Awoniyi is just not good enough to start but starting him from the bench might bring out the best in him….  I don’t believe in tribe if you are bad you’re bad and today Awoniyi, Lookman, Onyeka and even Bassey did not do well for different reasons. Collins was not bad but he offered nothing extra Bruno that also came in was not special. I don’t get paid by any tribe so if coincidentally one tribe is mostly mentioned then it because they’re underperforming coincidentally. Let us be honest in submission and we will move forward as a nation and not to forget the coach is very average with his selection despite playing a very attacking formation.

      • Field Marshall. General. Sir Johnbob 6 months ago

        Chima E Samuels

        I actually am not accusing you of tribalism Mr Samuels, I have seen your comments and I don’t particularly see them as tribalistic – Have I ever called you a tribalist before? I think NO would be the answer to that.

        Make no mistake – I would not even waste my spit to respond or comment on any tribal angles or sentiments – I have said and will say again, It is a MUG’S game.

        With Awoniyi – We’ll just have to agree to disagree because to me, he is after Osimhen, our best striker currently, in fact Osigoal is only better in my own humble opinion because he has been doing it for much longer- so in other words, he is more experienced.

        I unlike you will not call the wqhole team out for today’s lacklustre performance – for me, it rests squarely on the heads of Peseiro, Uzoho, Lookman and an off day for Iwobi- that is where I leave it.

        Prognosis is – Peseiro is nowhere near good enough, Uzoho is a basket and Lookman a waste of space (in SE colours). L:et him go and continue chopping his dollars or whatever they pay him in at Atalanta and leave the Eagles alone.

    ROTFL……My goodness! so this is the team that these clowns expect us to win the afcon for the 4th time with ? lol. Some of us are vindicated, I knew this team would go no where but was secretly hoping they would surprise me. This coach would not take this team anywhere and the sad part is the coach,players, NFF and some section of SE fans are all delusional and complicit. They said “Let Us do it again”….lol, They want to do it again with Uzoho as the number 1? Bunch of jokers!

    I have repeated that they are all suffering from delusion of grandeur. When sound thinking and merit gives way to sentiments, the result is what you get. Pasero mi should please explain to Nigeria why on earth Joe Aribo is in the team again? How is Uzoho the best goal keeper in Nigeria? Why pack strikers like sardine when there is an obvious gap in the midfield? A good coach strengthen the team by identifying the weaknesses first and the fixing those weaknesses. This coach does not have a clue.

    Watch the space closely…lol some clowns in the NFF will now say Musa and Ekong must be back in the team to motivate them, “their leadership is needed” lol, chai who do us like this. Let us as fans think with a clear head, would westerhof take a division 2 midfielder to execute a world cup qualifier? How about the balance of the team? there are only 4 midfielders and how many are attacking? For years now some of us have been shouting for them to look for a new dependable goal tender but it has fallen on NFF’s deaf ears. How can a goal keeper who is not even deemed to be number 1 in an agrarian league like cyprus be the national team goal keeper? What are all these inactive and unfit players doing in the team. perhaps the most pertinent question is how on earth did we end up with a coach who may have not won a single match for Venuzuela? What was the criteria in recruiting him? Since he took the reins, what has been his win ratio? According to NFF, they were trying to avert disaster with Rohr but but ended up with the apocalypse in Pasero mi. It just goes to show that Osimhen and Ndidi are monumental to this team. Awoniyi is not good enough, man’s missing sitters! Collins is beyond abysmal.

      Westerhof took 2 clubless players to an AFCON. There were several 2nd division and bench-warming players Westehof used during his time. Peter Rufai too wasn’t 1st choice in his club for a large chuck of Westerhof’s reign.

      1994 was 30 years ago. Lets leave Westerhof and how he did his things 30 years ago out of this.

    • Field Marshall. General. Sir Johnbob 6 months ago

      Nah – your’e wrong there- He missed 1 sitter – 1 sitter that’s all! How many sitters per game does Osimhen miss?? Was Awoniyi the only striker on the pitch? why didnt the other striker who your’e not criticising score??
      I don’t understand what you lot are on but leave Awoniyi out of it fam – he is not the problem! If after today’s game all you can say is Awoniyi is not good enough – okay who is then? Did Boni score? Did anyone else apart from a defender score? He missed one chance ffs!
      I don’t know what your’e trying to do with your focus on Awoniyi when even a blind man knows that it’s mental trying to say we lost or drew today because of him when we had another striker playing as swell and the likes of Lookman running around like a headless chicken and a completely clueless coach

      • Golden Child 6 months ago

        How is it okay and comfortable for you to say that Lookman was running around like a headless chicken and yet you are okay with Awoniyi’s performance? At least Lookman hit the bar, so who really was running like a headless chicken? Besides, you need to calm down; the entire team did not play well today. There is no player that covered themselves in glory in this match.

        However, a top striker should at the least hit the target. In addition, I never stated that we drew because of him (Your mind is probably playing tricks on you) but only took a swipe at him for his below par performance. I will reiterate in my opinion, he is not good enough for the SE (With my full chest). The other striker gave him the assist that created the sitter and your man decided that the ball should travel to Maiduguri instead of the net. In conclusion, you also stated that Osimhen misses sitters. You may be right but compare Osimhen’s goal return in the SE colours to Awoniyi.

    How can u expect a team with zero midfield to win. At this point we need a German coach to help us rebuild this team. Fire this clueless coach now.clown playing iheanacho, Iwobi and lookman at the same time, is like playing with minus three.

  • Respect is reciprocal 6 months ago

    Don’t let us blame any of players for this mess. The coach should be blamed. If another  sound and technical coach should take over today this same players will be unstoppable . Peseiro is a racist and full of pride and it is unfortunate that his pride would lead Nigeria into destruction. Before he was even given the job of coaching eagles he said he was going to win the nation cup. Who the heck does he think he is ?  What does he think of African football power house like Ghana, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Senegal , Cotediovre , Cameroun Mali  Egypt and the rest. Does he really respect the teams we play against at all. If your coach doesn’t respect opponents there is no way the team will respect the team they are playing against. What kind of philosophy has he brought ? Attacking football that put 4 players and 2 midfield is crazy . The best we can get from Sunday’s game is a draw and if South Africa is smart they can gather 6 points from two matches while we will be left with 2 points and that is the end of our World Cup qualifier, the rest will be politics of souther FA to favor their own.
    The earlier the better we sacrifice our nations cup for World Cup by sacking this empty head call Peseiro the better for us.

  • Hmmm

    1. I advise you please lower or cut off your expectation.
    2. Don’t allow your BP to rise.
    3. Simple truth – these players don’t deserve to Play at the world cup. They can’t beat a below average team like Lesotho in Nigeria.
    4. They are not world cup materials.
    5. Even if oshimen and ndidi were available it may not even be different.
    6. Apart from iheanacho, I can’t see an attacker who can take responsibility or who can score impossible goals in this team.
    7. On the coach – I am always surprised why he keeps starting ademola. Ademola had been useless in our last two or three matches and Moses had come in with a spark. So common sense should let him know that Moses should start ahead of him. Ademola can’t do anything in an eagles shirt. He is not the right stuff for eagles.

    8. On the coach again, he should understand by now that he needs to be flexible with his formation. I don’t think he is wise enough to know this. He is too focused on the attackers we have and have decided not to give some new players the opportunity in the middle. Nwobodo, alhassan etc. Pessro is not wise or tactical enough to help this team.

    8. On the coach again – his confidence in some players who will never do anything good in eagles shirt is funny. Players like moffi, uzoho, aribo, ademola. I would have added chukuwueze but if only coach can always bring him in the second half, he would perform better. We were looking for a goal today and he was bringing in moffi. I laughed. Has moffi done anything to save Nigeria in the past. Dumb coach. Why can’t you throw Boniface into the middle after bringing awoniyi out and bring in tella.

    9. We were down. We have tella. You can take a risk to see what he could offer. Instead he brought players like aribo who will never do well in eagles shirt.

    10. Lower your expectation. This team does not deserve to Play at the world cup. It’s no that they won’t qualify. They don’t deserve to be there. South African clubs are doing well in Africa. If they can translate that into the national team. They will do better at the world cup. They are more hungry than these bunch of lazy players

    • pompei 6 months ago

      Take heart bro. The situation is bad, but things can still work out for us. What we need now is a tactically savvy coach. Under a good coach, these same boys will do much better.
      If we win the rest of our games, and we can do it if we go about things the right way, we will qualify for the world cup with games to spare. But it starts with Zimbabwe on Sunday. A win of any kind will do. After that, we can do some house cleaning.

        On the coach, how I wished we can just send him away and hand over the team to finidi. If he refused to take bribe or be a Nigerian he should do better than this man. It’s clear oesero does not understand the Nigerian game and the players m he is struggling.

  • SeanT 6 months ago

    Let’s be honest with ourselves. The blame is not limited to the Coach & his crew. NFF is the main culprit as they refused to hire a qualified and sound Coach for the National Team simply because they cannot afford their salary according to them. Peseiro didn’t force himself on Nigeria. The corrupted & incompetent Admnistrator imposed him on SE and we fans.

    Also some of the players are to be blamed. Fine una Coach no sabi anything but then why wasted so much chances in a crucial match ? Doesn’t make any sense.

    They played like nothing is at stake. Can’t you all learn from Osimhen tenacity and passion why on the field. I didn’t really watch the match well but the few minutes i saw, Ihaenacho played well, eventhough he was used out of position likewise Iwobi. He played from Central midfield and distribute the ball well judging from 2nd half as i didn’t watch the 1st half. With a quality attacking midfielder, they would have been more creative. Who else, no one.

    Oh i almost forgot thanks to Ajayi that save us from an embarrassing defeat.

    If i’m the NFF Chairman, i will begin to source for a grade A Coach immediately and once we have an agreement, i will sack the unfortunate Peseiro with immediate effect otherwise he will disgrace us at Afcon. It won’t be surprising if we don’t make it out of the group.

    We shouldn’t expect much at Afcon so it’s better they sack him if they’re able to get a fantastic coach who have history and have couple of trophies in his cabinet. Salary shouldn’t be problem. At least the likes of Otedolas knows how to flex their financial muscle when SE are doing well. So all they need is approach him & other Elite that are interested in sport to source for fund and also source for sponsors for the NT so salary won’t hinder them from getting the best Man for the job

  • I never watch the first half but went to see the whole highlight and I never saw any chance Awoniyi had or missed at all. Not even a clear pass to him at all that he could not score. He even gave one empty net pass to Boniface that he miss controlled. I get, the people blaming Awoniyi are just doing that based on expectations or assumptions that, what will Osimhen have done better. Trust me, Osimhen have missed or blasted so many chances also that were meant to be goals and he has been lots of matches before he could get to his current goal numbers. So, be patient guys, they have diffrent tactics, Osimhen is more of a hussler, while Awo needs feeding most times, which is not present in the current uncreative eagles.

    It felt like a loss to me. If you want to be at the WorldCup you must win your home games at least. Every match is now a must win from here on. We don’t have a midfield period. Does anyone know the whereabout of Etebo? The FlyingEagles midfield might do a better job with Onyedika.

    Onyeka was outplayed in the middle, Iwobi is not daring, Collins is not supposed to be our left back. Osayi wasn’t doing anything on the wingback role. The best chance in the game came from an Awoniyi pass and Boniface fluffed it. Moffi came in and wasn’t even noticeable. Aribo can’t get on a cross to the box he was just flying like an antelope. Ha Temi Bami. 

    The less said about Boniface the better. Dude was just showboating on the pitch. I don’t even want get to the Uzoho matter. I’m gutted I just hope SA and Benin play out a draw to give us a chance. How can my country not be at a WorldCup in my backyard? I hope they step up in the next game or else!! 

    • CHIDI 6 months ago

      Sha je daake, when they were praising them, this one will do this, that one will do that, wetin come happen, na garbage we receive. If oshimen dey this game, nothing, i reapt nothing will happen. We should thank our stars that it was just Lesotho, imagine if it was a stronger team we facing

    • Well I hope so but you will see this coach put out the same formation he started with. Lazy and wasteful ademola on the left wing. Unfit and focus less Collins st left back. Basket uzoho in goal. Wasteful and timid awoniyi as a point man. Tella as an unused substitute. Moses Simon on the bench. A moffi that cannot produce anything special to play behind awoniyi.

      This coach is clueless. It’s so clear now that he only makes noise. Tired of these below average white men. If only our local coach can stop stealing and bribery, it’s better ee stick to them or go for a grade A coach.

      If this coach is wise he should use

      Uzoho (because we have little option)

      Osayi
      Aina at left back
      Semi
      Baseey
      Onyeka
      Iwobi
      Iheanacho (to play behind main striker)
      Boniface as main striker
      Moses st left wing
      Tella ( take a risk with tella on the right)

      But really I think they should just kiss the world cup good bye. It’s painful though.
