  • It’s good that the Eaglets won the match if not that yeye former Mexico coach for finish us with mouth. Mali won too shutting off his mouth the more. A piece of advice to Amuneke and his ward will not be out of place. Mali are the African Champion. Nigeria is the world champion but those who made that possible are no more there. They have moved on. Mali are still with the same players that made them African Champion. They are more motivated as they will see the finals as a continuation of the African battle. They will be thinking ‘if the Eaglets are that good why are we the African Champion.’ Moreover they have reached the finals with the lowest goal conceded. Just 2 goals against. Very impressive result indeed. That means they have a very miserly backline and a prolific attackers. If they have a goal scoring attack, it means that their midfield is good, very good, helping to shield the back and supplying the forwards. This is a team no team should toy with. Amuneke is a no laughing coach(perhaps after the matches), always serious. Also he has dazzle the football world with his tactics. His tactics is not in any book. I trust he will be thinking as I am doing now: do not underate this Malian team. This is the finals and so if there is a secret tactics still unfolded, unfold it now or never. I wish the Eaglets the best on Sunday. Well-done Mr Pinnick AMAJU, that is if you were in Chile Thursday night(Chile time), Friday morning(Nig time). I guess you will be there on Sunday and watch the Arsenal vs Tottenham match on tv before heading to the stadium. I know that if there is one thing that will make you not to be in Chile on Sunday it is any match involving Arsenal. You will prefer to be in London. But sacrifice.
