    What else will you say? That you are afraid? of course not as it will not be good for the morale of the players before the big game against the Super Eagles.However, I feel we will record a bigger win away to a slender one at home.Nig 2 – S/Leone 1 (home). Nig 4 S/Leone 1 (Away)

    you should, kakay, you should.
    “Courage is more than bravery. Bravery is fearlessness – the absence of fear. The merest dolt may be brave, because he lacks the mentality to appreciate his danger; he doesn’t know enough to be afraid” – Napoleon Hill.
    your team could only salvage one point out of a possible 6, and your current opponent bagged the whole 6 points against the very same team that both won and drew you.
    I know you are trying to be patriotic in order to boost morale, I understand. pray that rohr shows you mercy by playing only one striker (probably osimhen) instead of both osimhengoal and Iheanachoski.
    then, and only then, would you know true terror!

    Don’t underate this Leone star team. Anything can happen in football that is for sure. We saw what our last opponent did to us in away match that ended 2-1 in favored of Nigeria in this Afcon qualifiers. Madagascar did the same thing.

    We should remember that must of our players are new to the African football. That is another challenge.

    All I can say is to wish our team the best. Fingers crossed. God bless Nigeria!!!

      Which last opponent did you win 2-1 away….??? Or are you drunk as usual…? I hope you have started your fasting and prayer for Nigeria to lose once again. Your default setting is always for Nigeria to lose. Always making references to the matches we lose and overlooking the many we won…we lost an inconsequencial match agqaist madagascar and then….? Did we not win against Guinea, did we not win against Burundi, cameroon, SA, Tunisia…?? Always hyping all our opponents ahead of SE…..only U hype libya, only u hype lesotho, only u hype south africa…..and latter you will claim you are a patriotic nigerian who doesnt hate Rohr….shior…!
