    There’s nothing like early world cup qualification because the final hurdle is there for everyone against one of the best 9 other group winners. So it’s going to be a different scenario Paa Rohr.

    • Mr. Nice 1 month ago

      At least he has to qualify from this group first before taking of the next round especially with the nation’s cup also around the corner!

  • Not too happy this man has turned a whole African world cup qualification to mere inter-house sport as chronicled by the very hilarious UBFE.

      Your own dey your body continue celebrating qualifiers. These average mindsets have seen people die with low ambitions. Arsenal fans for example some will die without witnessing Champions league cup. Me I want to live and witness Nigeria win a World Cup…. Everyone with their vision Sha no vex.

      • @ Chima Samuel, if you can get our NFF and cronies to do the right thing which we all know right, we will definitely be winning every consecutive world Cup competition, can put my money on that. Until then, I will stand by the man or whoever is giving us a glint of hope. Lolz

        • Chima E Samuels 1 month ago

          I’m not against him I’m against Nigeria. Nigeria as a country must win a world cup we are tired of excuses. The mentality has to change.

    • @Glory,u dey find trouble from all the Regressives for forum… Our man Rohr dey fall their hand per se per se… Lolz

      • Chima E Samuels 1 month ago

        You mean drey the chairman of regressive and secretary glory. Regressive mindsets are those who refuse to have winning mentality. They are the Arsenal kinds that celebrate qualifiers. I believe progressive is one that does not entertain excuses but sets out to achieve the ultimate. Not even an Afcon trophy to show and all this comfort talk. Most of you here need common sense to judge well. The regressive minds should be enlightened for good!

        • Oga Chima,
          No vex. Any team fit play for WC without qualifying first? Habba!

          • @KangA,tnx for asking bros @Chima a very realistic question, I believe in celebrating every milestone on the way to achieving the ultimate goal!!! Unfortunately some people believe that it’s possible to jump the gun!

          • Chima E Samuels 1 month ago

            No time to argue keep celebrating qualifiers, I will see you later after I change my allegiance because I can’t be attached to average.

        • Chima E Samuels 1 month ago

          I’m talking of the fact that qualifying and not making a mark is being celebrated. That is too average for me. I believe we should be dominating with the luxurious talents we have. I don’t like the fact that we are been satisfied as under achievers in senior football. We need to ask for questions and set real goals for the team. Else we will all never experience a world cup until generations come. Nigerians must dream and ask for the ultimate. I feel jealous when I watch Senegal play with flair and hunger. We should be doing better than now instead of accepting average results for whatever reasons.

        • Lolzz… @ Chima Samuel. A whole me naim u come dey call Drey secretary. Hahahaha…ha. Ooooboy you bad o. Anyway Drey’s sound reasoning puts him apart n that is something almost impossible to find amongst majority of nigerians albeit there are stil quite a few around, even here. That soundness of mind is what I respect in him n won’t even mind being his seco.

    You do know Senegal senior team hasn’t won anything tangible in football?
    So it is quite paradoxical ,feeling jealous of a country , We (Nigeria ) are better than in all ramifications just because they play with flair. Flair without the bag is empty. That goes against the ‘ultimate’ mentality you profess.

    I do support the notion we should dream big and aim high but we should be objective about such lest we fall victim to our fantasy. We should keep it real.

    To win the world cup,you have to qualify. Right now the mountain in front of us is world cup qualification, it is not an easy fit. Precedence shows, Bigger teams have failed this hurdle; Spain, France, The Netherlands, England,Egypt, Uruguay,etc. Even the USA failed to qualify for the last world cup from a Concacaf zone that many see as a walk over.

    Why we aim high , we should take every step at a time, with humility,diligence and hard work.
    Every positive step we take and make towards achieving our aim is satisfactory as long as we keep our eyes on the price and never lower our standard.

    • See better talk, oil dey ya head @Mr Hush! @Chima,u see the point i was making above about celebrating every milestone on the path to achieving the ultimate goal! But u came out to call my reasoning average, I have no beefs with you bro… But let’s always take life a step at a time!

    • Chima E Samuels 1 month ago

      I’m talking about their promising and passionate display that lacks in our team most especially in major tournaments where we are grounded by any technical opposition, I am making an example have we challenged ourselves and stop allowing Ighalo like misses to derail dreams of going further and becoming a consistent household name in the game? Are we ever going to witness in the next 7 years No1 in world ranking? If we continue the way we are going we might not do anything reasonable for the next 10years again. You people should continue giving excuses upon excuses and facts upon facts!

      • Mr Hush 1 month ago


        With all due respect; facts don’t care about emotions.

        No matter how passionate one can be, reality hits differently.

        Not to undermine the Senegalese team ( they do have some quality and play good) but they have been promising since Senegal 92 with nothing really tangible to show for it.
        Promises upon promises adds up to nothing without fulfillment.
        In respective of today’s state of play, it is self defeating argument comparing a promising Senegal and a Nigeria which have achieved atleast at a time. Our trophy cabinet isn’t empty.

        I have no problem with dreaming big and aiming high but you plan accordingly. You have to plan according to your capacity and ability. And then grow.
        I believe every Nigerian want the Super Eagles to be number one or win the world cup but we all know it is objectively far fetched. Not impossible to achieve but realistically, a tall order.
        Even at that, to win a cup, you need be at the cup. To be at number one, you have to beat what’s in front of you.
        Let tomorrow take care of itself , let’s focus on today.
        Today we are top of our qualifying group and on a positive route to qualify. So that’s a win. Let’s enjoy that and aim high.
