    Good List made up of the regulars.
    Anyone chosen can get the job done.
    I just hope this rainy weather will allow good football on the pitch.

    Go Super Eagles and make us proud.

    • That Lagos Teslim Balogun pitch is a poor pitch. The rain-soaked pitch also made the playing conditions difficult and was also difficult to play any serious-minded football on. Please take all subsequent Super Eagles home matches to Uyo (or Abuja which is slightly manageable)if you want the Nigerian national soccer team to progress to the World cup in Qatar. The NFA and Nigerian Federal Government should please stop playing politics with venues of Super Eagles home games. A word is enough for the wise.

    Rohr is now becoming repentant good line up except Maduka okoye who has been infected by Akpeyi conceding goals like watermelon. I want to see Etebo in place of Aribo and Terim moffi in for Moses Simon Onuachu in for Kelechi or Victor finally Ejuke can also be brought to replace iwobi or Moses. Rohr should make changes and be flexible we have players hungry to play good football.

    • Adeniyi 3 weeks ago

      Spot on on Okoye. Except we change to a 4-4-2, Onuachu should be on the bench abeg and on for Osimhen when him don tire. Etebo for Aribo is a no-no, we need his creativity with that of Iwobi to deliver the ball to our front men. Na where to watch the match now be the wahala!

      • Looking for online link…

        Etebo is all rounder he can shoot from afar if the people are crowding defense and Etebo can burst into defense watch his highlight he’s a serious weapon when given freedom to roam.

        • That was Etebo of 7years ago. He is SE weakest player now. Don’t even think about it. He can’t tackle. He is too slow. He was the main reason Sierra Leone came back from 4-0 down. 2 of the goals were from Etebo losing the ball to the opponent.

    Good line-up!
    Aribo, Osimehn and kelechi Iheanacho all to score this evening.

    Up Super eagles!

    I am not a fan of Oga Rohr, but this is the best selection I have ever seen.

    With right tactics, I see the team going goals crazy

  • Michel 3 weeks ago

    Good line up and good luck ,okoye plz ooo,I don’t trust you

  • No choice we will win but let it be massively like Algeria yesterday.
    But my own choice of LINE-UP will be like this:

  • Give it rohr! All his first 11 selections are always spot on.his tactics is always zero.if we don’t wallop this guys with this squad,we should forget the world cup

  • Tunsak 3 weeks ago

    Interesting. Nobody is raising eyebrows about the inclusion of Collins at LB. Shows all the noise here before is all beef.

    Well this is a decent squad that will do the business. Wish we could score 8, yes no disrespect to Liberia but if Algeria can do thus we should aim to be in this bracket.That will send shivers in the spine of the Blue Sharks (Cape Verde).

    • Chima E Samuels 3 weeks ago

      Nobody is talking because Zaidu has been inactive we are not naive we follow national interest.

    • Zaidu go late to the camp… Camp. In yesterday or so

  • Tunsak 3 weeks ago

    But Ola Aina can play that role is it?

  • Based on available players,, the selection is right. The issue is applying the right tactics and taking advantage of our opponent’s weaknesses.
    I don’t expect much from the substitutes because I think some of the guys on that bench are only lucky to be there. They have the opportunity to prove that they belong to SE.

  • Link please

  • Ayphillydegreat 3 weeks ago
