    The only thing that wil make Saudi beat Nigeria is if the nigerian team did not train together for 180mins ie 2days in camp before the game . If they train together for 4days with 360mins training on the field referee wil stop the game to safe Saudi from conceding 6 goals . .. goals from ihaenacho, oshimen, chueeze,ndidi the new attacking midfielder and moffi,with Simon free kick wil kill d saudi

      Personally, I don’t trust Nigeria when it comes to friendlies. Also if they’re playing a country that can bribe them like Saudi Arabia. I wouldn’t bet my money on Nigeria, not because I don’t think that Nigeria has better players and can beat Saudi, but because I don’t trust them.

      My brother don’t be fooled by all these names..Thinking we beat Saudi Arabia with such a big scoreline is laughable..
      You should hope for a victory that’s all.1 nill two goals to one,a victory is a victory!Saudi Arabia have a better F.A. and in a better condition to give their best,in other words,they’re better motivated than our boys coupled with recent investment in their league all this factors will come to play against a side less motivated with criminal leaders in almost every sectors!

    Osimhen has lost his scoring boots!It’s frustrating how he can’t put the ball away in a one on one with a goalkeeper.He likes to go for power most of the time..Lifting the ball over the goalkeeper is just the smart skill to score against an on rushing netminder because they’re least expecting.So you can really catch them off guard..
    Had Osimhen scored that goal,his team will stand a chance of winning as well boost his golden shoes chances.
    Against Real Madrid he was successfully checked by Rudiger because he does everything with power!
    Another observation in tonights game is the Napoli forwards and midfielders not making intelligent goalscoring or team passes which could have gotten them a goal or two.Apparently,Fiorentina passes and pressed better that was why they won.They played for each other,but in the case of Napoli rather than pass to a better placed player,they shoot to the sky!Osimhen could have scored a second but for his teammates relunctance to pass,they’re just personal glory chasers!
