    Not bad for the first half

    • Some players will be playing last game for eagles today. 3 of them are on the list of eleven. Against Cameroon 1st half

    Honestly, this is the best we have available at this moment, New players can be introduced into the game in the second half…..

    Hehehehehe wot is iwobi doing there? He should not be starting matches for Nigeria at the moment. He needs to improve his game.for how long we go dey manage am average number 10? Haba

      This list is good to go, no shaking!!

      Kelechi should be replaced by moffi in the second half, since the dude can be unserious sometimes and both are left footed too.

      Soar Super Eagles !!!

    • If iwobi no start who suppose start,how many number 10 dere camp

    • I think after the match fans here will agree with your comment. He’s good for second half but not a starter.

  • Lolz @mutum, if Iwobi is not playing, who would be our creative outlet??? Seems you took a long vacation from naija football abi, u have not heard that until we can get Iwobis replacement, he is absolutely vital to the team ehn???

    I pray Olayinka would come in during second half so we can see what he has got to offer. Then Marcus possibly slot in midfield to see if he can do the creative work in the muddle. Not a bad starting line up at least Musa is not starting.

    bro I beg respect iwobi, bcos he deserves it. how is iwobi average with all he have proved for a short time with the eagles. iwobi is the best attacking midfielder Nigeria have seen after Jay Jay okocha. if u know anyone u can tel me. if u like better thin you surpose understand me. when Mikel obi wasn’t regular for Chelsea, he was always regular with the eagles bcos we know how important he was for the eagles, when Rodriguez was not regular for Madrid and bayern he was regular for Colombia, same case with Sanchez, buashuaye, and origi, even giroud and shaqiri . all these players had difficulties with club but still regular with national duties based on their qualities . so why are you treating iwobi differently? the guy have been good with the eagles and still had some couple of good games last season for club side. stop the criticism and let him regain confidence, for now he still remain the supereagles best 10. until someone else prove otherwise.

  • I guess my predicted line up was spot on. Not a surprise though. These are the fittest and most in form of all the players in the team. Wishing the team a successful outing.
