    • Greenturf 5 years ago


    • @Dr.Drey, sorry sir, na french you write so abi na arabic lol.

      • Dr. Drey 5 years ago

        Sorry Boss….wasn’t meant for this forum…! I was trying to update @Greenturf at that time while also trying to update some francophone pals too. If only CSN would just give us our Edit button…!

    This guys are playing  trash 

  • Dr. Drey 5 years ago

    Goal no 2. Offia. 23′

  • PRAISE 5 years ago

    If we focus on the scoreline against this opposition we will miss the real assessments.we should be scoring the standard of play and coordination and on the evidence of what I have seen so far I cant see understanding or cohesion. Only a few good players.
    I am not impressed

    • Nigeria 4 – 0 Qatar.

      Offia, Effiom, Dele-Basharu and Salawudeen.

      Ikouwem x2, Kingsley Michael x1, Jerome Akor x1

      I’m not sure what else you want to focus on, but four goals, four assists suggests undestanding, cohesion and team work. Its the first game, Nigeria usually starts tournaments slowly. They will get better

    • Greenturf 5 years ago

      Can you play football? If you aren’t impressed with their performance then no performance will impress you!

  • hanif 5 years ago

    dis tin is not promising ,, as for me I DNT see dem making any impact ,,

    d team strategy is even worst ,, d Qatar players are either suffering from deir fast if we play a gud team ,,, d team will be exposed

  • Na wa o. We nigerians expect too much. When they played the U-20 Nations cup, we complained they couldn’t score in open play. Now they have scored 4, we still complaining. Don’t know what else we want

    • Oakfield 5 years ago

      We as Nigerian football lovers are not mediocre s, we want the best!!! We don’t understand the term ‘make we manage or try win’. We want to play well and win so that when we meet a very good team, we’ll be able to stand our ground solidly not fizzle out like mist. This is one of the reasons why Nigerians excel in every sphere of life in any part of the world, we don’t celebrate mediocrity. If the team is bad as a result of lack of technical know how, we should put it on the face of whom ever that is in charge. I really don’t have confidence in the coach, he really doesn’t have what it takes to coach any nigerian team.

      • @oakfield

        There are bound to be lapses here and there. Saying that the players are not doing anything is a bit harsh in my view. One of the greatest areas the team had issues with was the attack, and i believe you can see the difference compared to the U-20 nations cup. I believe gradually they will pick up. Almost 10 players from the afcon are not in this team. So i believe the team is still a work in progress

        • Oakfield 5 years ago

          They had enough time to pick up during the series of friendlies they played. There’s really no time for a team to pick up during real tourneys, I’m not saying it’s impossible but it’s very dicey and a costly gamble. Let’s see if they’d pick up like u said.

  • Adewuyi Olaosenikan 5 years ago

    Stop celebrating mediocrity

  • Dr. Drey 5 years ago

    For me….all i’m looking for are players that are good enough to step up the ladder to the SE in time for 2022. For now, only the 3 usual suspects have shown enough class….Oremade, Ozonwafor and Utin. Just like the U20 AFCON squad, we still really dont have that bunch of naturally skillful/gifted/talented players. Players with x-factor at this level….like emma amuneke and austin okocha of the 91 squad, james obiorah of the 95 squad, or pius ikedia and julius aghahowa of the 99 squad or obasi ogbuke and obi mikel of the 2005 squad.

    • Darey 5 years ago

      Bro did u not notice bashiru

      • Dr. Drey 5 years ago

        Yea @ Darey, I did notice him. Quality player he is….but only for that age grade though. He still needs to mature in that no 10 role, if he can do that quick enough to gate crash the 2022 party is what we cant tell at the moment, but i fancy the U23s as his next step up the ladder for now, and not the SE. I think he should quit man city for a club in the 1st division of a decent club in a decent league, holland, belgium or france, or even a mid-table laliga team, where he can get regular football and hone his skills better.
        Given the buzz that has been about him before yesterday’s match i did expect much more from him, though he wasnt bad in anyway, just like the entire performance of the team, but i believe a more technically gifted and tactically astute team would have given us a proper basis to assess the FE, individually and collectively.
        The Qataris were a huge disappointment. They just didnt offer much of a competition on the day.

  • Chairmanfemi 5 years ago

    Am shocked!! Like some people only followed CSN live-broadcast not that they watched the match live. Imagine a team that played so well, very compact football. So many exciting talents most especially the two wingers(Offia and effiom), the Midfield Maestro TOM DELE-BASHIRU and Kingsley Micheal and some are still hear analysing rubbish. Congratulations to the Flying Eagles for a game well-played. They are going far in this tournament

  • We just like to criticise people no matter how hard they try,for a first game in a tournament like this and coupled with the fact that some of them are training for the first time for a few weeks? I think they played averagely okay

  • Glory 5 years ago

    Just a shame some people pray for this Nigerian team to fail. They are sad its not happening n have come here castigating a team that just scored 4 without conceding. People forget how politics almost destroyed our football, (Giwa/Dalung). How even to start camping was a problem.This team will make a lot of people hug a live transformer at d end of d tournament. For me, I m happy for d new talents this team is gonna produce for d main SE n not too bothered about winning the Cup. Already so impressed with their first game. Ride on, Fly high eagles. Good luck to you all coaches n players.

    • Larry 5 years ago

      It is obvious that some fans are more concerned about the composition of a team than performance. The moment a team is not dominated by their tribes they start throwing tantrum into the wind. Sometimes ago someone opined that certain tribes deserved to dominate a team than others.
      This set of fans deserve needs serious orientation about the significance of performance irrespective of the composition of a team.

  • Sunnyb 5 years ago

    I think the next match will give us better insights about this team. But based on today’s game some players don’t ve any business in this team. 

  • Greenturf 5 years ago

    What are members assessing here!
    I am shocked to read all this post about our team playing badly,is it the same game I saw or a different one??

  • Niranye 5 years ago

    The Nigerian team that just played this match is not a mediocre team.

    It’s better to make your point clear by stating things that went wrong and how you think it would have been approached. And if you don’t have confidence in the coach, that’s fine as you are entitled to your
    own opinion.

    Like @BigD and @ade have said, there are positive things to see in this team and others to be worked on.

    So, please state the issues aside your lack of confidence in the coach, then we can all see and analyze.

  • Greenturf 5 years ago

    A whole lot of people criticised Aigbogun and condemned his team to failure.Apparently,I do not see the same people seeing anything good about this fantastically gifted team bound for excellency!
    There are many shinning stars in this team.I saw a compact team that played with so much energy and panache.They can only get better in subsequent games.
    The likes of Dele Bashiru and Kingsley Michael were huge in the midfield alongside Galil who protected the back four and shown in the midfield.The Eyimba player Maxwell Effiong had a great game as well Offia and substitute Adam Akor who brought urgency in the attack.
    The inclusion of goalscorer Salaudeen brought calmness and power to the defence that was convincing for 90 mins.
    I give kudos to the coach and his crew for a job well done.
    Wishing the flying eagles a gold winning tournament.

    • Chairmanfemi 5 years ago

      @Greenturf and others like Larry, Pompei, Ovie, Niranye and others who truly watched this match and thereby giving the right analysis, May you walk and never stumble. I just wonder if others really watched the same match I watched. Great team with exciting talents. I went to FIFA U-20 World Cup facebook page, you need to see the way people that are not Nigerians are praising the team for a game well-played. Someone even tagged Utin “the new David Alaba”. Other exciting talents like Tom Dele-Bashiru, K. Michael, Valentine and host of others. Kudos to Aigbogun and NFF for doing a great job on this team.

  • Pompei 5 years ago

    What impressed me most about these lads is that they PLAY AS A TEAM. They showed good understanding. They will get better as the tournament progresses. These guys have what it takes to go the distance.

  • hanif 5 years ago

    I shall not argue wit anyone In here as the team still have more games to be played, the team I watch today is a mediocre team ,, the team only ax 3 outstanding players dat left back, Kingsley and Tom .. I can still say d guy makanjuola nids to be told to calm down he ax potential..

    dat guy on 11 jersey most av paid for dis tournament ,, but bcos he got a goal ppl are here celebrating him..

    let’s wait and see

  • Omo9ja 5 years ago

    I didn’t watch the match but saw the highlights on YouTube. I can understand why people were so complaining after the match. Sometimes, it’s not about scoring goals but playing as a team.

    With what I saw in that match against Qatar, Fly Eagles will struggle against big teams. If you guys haven’t seen Italy vs Mexico match, go and watch the highlights of the match then, you will understand why some of my colleagues bn so angry with the coach of the team.

    The same thing might happens to Super Eagles in Egypt. Mark my words. Remember, you can’t give what you don’t have.

    The coaches we have in charge of our national teams are not capable to deliver anything meaningful when it’s matter most.

    NFF still have a lot to do. They are trying no doubt but they need to invest more in sports.

    The simple solution to this problem is that, NFF have to recruit new sets of young coaches of all sports and send them abroad for total exposure, training and the technics behind the games. Most especially in football.

    With what I’m seeing, NFF are spending money in a wrong direction because this is a digital era not analog era.

    What do I know ba? If I’m talking now, they are going to be saying omo9ja hmmm, your own is too much and your comment is irrelevant but forgetting that the truth is hurt and always bitter. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • @Hanif, u might have ur reason cos I only watch the second half..but Henry Offia (the number 11) scored in each of the 3 friendlies they played before the tournament and also scored yesterday. So , as a coach, I understand why they can’t drop him. What noticed something about him….he has good positioning..and from that, either assist or goals can come through that. And @Omonaija, u didn’t watch the match but the little u see from the YouTube makes u go against the team. The coach incharge is not Rohr that u hate so much remember? U don’t like how they run super eagles, same for flying eagles..may be u will love golden eaglets..let’s wait and see

  • Omo9ja 5 years ago

    @Sean, point of correction. I didn’t go against the coach of the under20 team and how would I hate coach Rohr? I was doing my analysis based on what I saw in yesterday match and the Super Eagles team.

    I am warning Nigerians before the kickoff of this year Afcon in Egypt and is that hate?

    You want me to follow the coach blindly abi? Having Akpeyi and co in the team is a good development for coach Rohr ba?

    What is the achievement of the coach if I may ask?

    He qualified Nigeria to the world cup and Afcon with a game to spare right?
    Now, what is the purpose of going to school without having the knowledge of what you are going to school for?

    And you want me to keep quiet?
    I am not expecting anything from the coaching crew of the Super Eagles team but if you do well, I wish you guys good luck.

    Africa football is very physical with techniques and our coaches have no idea on what to do when the team is under pressure and you wanted me to keep my mouth shut?

    And you called that hate? Chai…..chai…….chai….

    NFF didn’t put pressure on coach Rohr that already bn with the team for a while but they were asking the coach of the Super Falcons to deliver a good result in France by all means? Are you guys kidding me?

    No wonder Nigeria is still struggling to be among the best Countries in the world because we attacks those who speak the truth.

    So therefore, I do not hate coach Rohr instead, I am encouraging him to do the right thing at the right time because no time to check time.

    With the caliber of players we have at the moment, if coach Rohr fails to reach final of this year Afcon, they should let him go.

    France presented a young team in Russia and in the end they won the world cup why the coach is saying his team is young always?

    Why he can not be bold for once?
    Why Mr. Rohr doesn’t have confidence in his team? Why no compention in Super Eagles team? Why the coach making the same mistakes?

    These are the things you guys should looking onto instead of tagging me some wrong names. I know you guys name one by one in including “cabals group” lol.

    However, one thing I want you guys to put in mind. If you guys and the coach fails to make Nigeria proud in Egypt, hmm…..kai,
    “We hire and we fire. That is the role of the Nigerian fans”. This is the last opportunity for coach Rohr and his fans and you people should grab it with both hands.

    I love coach Rohr and I will keep loving him but I can not stop telling him or any Nigerian coach the truth because saying the truth is like my daily bread. I hate nobody. For these reasons, I wish all our coaches the best. God bless Nigeria!!!
