    Meaning we are left with our “wait and get” striker that cannot even hold up play….?? LMAO. In God we trust. Abeg make Akin Dare start for freetown and Amaju Pinnick come in for him in the 2nd half. All that their dazzling for training must not go to waste biko.

      Dr Drey, Amaju Pinnick the mercurial, ball playing midfielder. His dribbling skills and football sense leaves Jay Jay in the dust. Amaju must start in the return leg ooo.
      In fact, Rohr should bench Aribo and Etebo for Amaju. Amaju on his own can hold the midfield. And he has the vision to supply precision passes and crosses to the red hot Dare in the attack. We will show S/L pepper!

    This match was not suppose to be played in Benin City. The City has never demonstrated good omen for the National games played at Ogbe stadium. l remembered Sudan even beat Nigeria at home in those day in the eighties. The Nation always regret playing in that stadium. Why? l don’t know. l was the first one to suggest this match ought to go to Uyo. l am a proud Edo man, born and raised in Iwahen street. l have been watching matches since the early fifties at Kings square and in Edo college’s ground in the 1940’s. All these are not the points. International matches are just not good enough in Benin. It is what it is. and that is the way it has been even during the Oba Akenzua’s period. I love my City but, l love Nigeria more. Hope we beat them at home next time or forget the Nation’s Cup in 2021 in Carmaroon.

      Why can’t the NFF board challenge greedy Pinnick who surely collects envelopes from politicians to take matches away from UYO?

      It is not the City or Edo State. It was the players fault. They trained on the pitch, loved it and appreciated the lurch field. The SE simply underated their opponent or over confidence played out. There’s no iota of relationship between the City and goals scored by the players or their overall performance. They just went to sleep, when it mattered most.
      During a sports program in Benin aired by Speed FM. A caller, advised the SE to approach the game like they were playing the Brazilian National team. But they failed to do so.
      However, no more room for lamentations. Let them learn from the mistake of the game, put their acts together and play serious football, when they play the second leg in Freetown on Tuesday.
      I wish the SE all the best of luck. They remain my National team. Things like this do happen in football. The French National team experienced it to some days earlier. Even though it was in a friendly capacity. Thank you.

      Edoman this ill-luck is in your families generations as a curse, that live in Benin city, for saying Benin city is not favorable to play international matches,for you to blame the coach and the players for their poor performance, you are attributing to Benin city my Question is this who selected they players, who played the ball, who are the technical coach that could not read the game, for you to applaud the great effort of the Governor who emback on huge project to renovated the stadium to international stadium you are ranting noose, Even you can not spell Iwehen correctly shame on you.

        anyone could be keyboard/keypad warrior. it’s allowed. I saw someone here commending the governors effort for errecting below standard pitch. I believe u do watch European football, epl etc. even lower leagues as Albania or Cyprus league can’t approve such pitch for match nor training. I don’t even think European club uses such a poor pitch for academy training talkless of matches. call a spade a spade. Nigerian government is a fraud. I understand that fact that coach Genort Rohr has no tactical impetus bcos I don’t know which sensible coach will bench his 2 rbs to accommodate a cb with low speed gravity. the players as well have themselves to blame for this lacklustre performance. everybody has got their shares of ups and downs. 3 games how, 2 draws and 1 loss.against fellow African nations. I think lockdown causes damage to this. I don’t wanna be complacent. but I believe in this team.
        Sir Meloxxy. thanks for your one love spirit towards Nigeria. I knew your Edo people will attack u bcos of your point towards the city. and this is why Nigeria won’t get to that status we ought to be.
        until we all begin to see ourselves as Nigerians ( not as Yoruba, not as igbo nor Hausa) Nigeria will still remain in loo.
        only the fools will think of his tribe or city first as a point of consideration.

        up eagles
        up Nigeria
        soro sokeeeee✊✊✊
