  • This is my fear- more unknown players than known ones so that it’s very difficult to make a guess whether we will overwhelm/be overwhelmed by/equal the Tanzanian team. I only know the strength of Ahmed Musa, Ken Omeruo, Kwambe & Emma Emenike. I know Haruna but I do not know how good he is as of today. Others I have zero knowledge of their strength. My prediction is still Tanzanian 0-2 Nigeria.

  • Eagles Are Flying Today Past Tanzania,he No Be Small O,make We Go Dey Watch.

    I think Nigeria will do well. Madu and William performed well in our last match, Simon has been a tested player in Super Eagles, but I have not seen much of Ikeme, Uzochukwu and Usman, others we know what they can do. Meanwhile, Nigeria will still beat them.


    I am still belive that my country nigeria will win tanzania’s with 3 : 1

    What about Ighalo? His current form is better than Emineke's.

  • Ajayi Adesola 3 years ago

    Though some of them are new faces in the super eagle squad but Nigeria will still win Tanzania by 2-0
