    Quality of players! Quality of players!! Everyday that’s what we get to hear. Enough is been said about that. I think is high time we talk of quality of football. I mean teamwork.team play. Not just individual football. Fine we have quality players but it might get to a point where it will disappoint and we will start looking for quality of team play we won’t see

    Coach Rohr will bench you for Ighalo your eye go clear. Ighalo, Shehu, Musa, Onuachu,Noble and Akpeyi has no business in this team.

    I’m beginning to think that after all, Omo Naija is right in his criticism. Nigerians doesn’t deserve this punishment called Rohr, he is outdated and out of touch with realities. He’s is a fraud, with most of his team selection, Moses Simon, Balogun, Ekong, Collins, odigon, Nacho, Iwobi, Maduka are all fraud

    I was beginning to agree with you not until you mention Nacho’s name then I realized that it is you @Empire that is a fraud for putting Nacho’s name there. For the fact that a player is having a bad run of games or out of form doesn’t mean his time when the goals will start coming in or when he will pick form will not come.

    Osimhen, i beg talk for yourself o bcos only you and Ndidi are playing their heart out for the eagles. The rest are just there. Not bcos they’re not good enough but could be bcos their is no motivation as NFF has refused to pay match bonus. That’s understandable but my problem is why are some mediocre players still doing in the team all in the name of experience ? What’s the essence of experience they have if they can’t impact a game ? Another question is can experience give what it don’t have ? Answer is simply NO. IGHALO has no pace, and the current SE squad are mostly youngsters so he can’t cope with the team play. Other than that he’s no a good finisher as compared to the likes of Dessers, Awoniyi, Umar and Moffi. Ighalo even at his prime lose goals a lot. He can only convert 1 chance out of 5. He can’t track back, neither can he create chances out of nothing like Osimhen does. Simon, Shehu, Ekong, Balogun and Musa should be excused from the national team. They’re killing the team with their woeful performance over and over. Balogun can still be giving a bench role going by his aerial prowess which could be usefull towards end of the match bcos SE are known for conceding cheap corner kicks like the one Ekong did yesterday. Finally Rhor should be paid his salary and let him go. His technical ability is far below average. If you all watch the SE world cup qualifiers, you will notice all the teams dominated us at the midfield. Low teams for that matter. All this stat on the dailies are scam. SE never had better ball possession than Cape Verde, Liberia nor CAR. We were outplayed in those games except for the goals. I know some of u will argue that the result is all you care about. But be honest to yourselves is this the kind of football SE is known for ? Is this the shambolic performance we’re going to display at the tournament? SE matches is now an eye sore to say the least.

    I just pray Osigoal should stay fit during the playoff. During the afcon and world cup if we qualify because without him, SE is not just finished but is completely finished if what we saw yesterday is anything to go by.
