    …and the home-based contingent…?? I thought their sellers told us they are as good as, and possibly, better than their Europe based colleagues…?

      IT WILL B BETTER FOR YOU TO KEEP IT UP THAN FOR U TO B CARRIED AWAY.BECAUSE THERE ARE LOT OF POTENTIAL PLAYERS THAT ARE MORE THAN SCORING GOALS ALONE THAT IS ABOUT TO COME TO SUPER EAGLE NOW.
      ** YOU CAN IMAGINE, IGHALO THAT WAS A HIGHER GOALS SCORER IN 2018/2019 AFCON QUALIFIER & 2019 AFCON COMPETITION WAS NOT IN ANYWAY MISSED IN SUPER EAGLES TEAM BCOS OF AVAILABILITY OF ADEQUATE POTENTIAL PLAYERS THAT CAN REPLACE HIM COMPARED TO D PERIOD OF OKOCHA THAT THEY WILL B BEGGING THEM TO RESCINDED THEIR DECISION.
      ** PRESENTLY NO PLAYERS SHOULD B CARRIED AWAY BCOS HE IS SCORING GOALS
      *** WATCH OUT FOR MOFFI, LOOKMAN DESSERS, MAJA, UMAR, IWUALA,J.AYAYI

    I prefer to proceed with caution in life. If this was a casual trip, no problem. But a trip of such magnitude, with so much importance, and with a generation of the best players we’ve had in a long time, ALL ON ONE BOAT. Hmmm, it is well.
    If they must go by sea, then it should be in something comparable to a Yacht, and they should be accompanied by the Nigerian Navy, or similar security arrangements should be made.
    If you are a jewelry merchant, will you transport valuable jewels to the market place in plastic bags? Or will you put the jewels in lock safes and have them transported with tight security? The shoddy arrangements made by the NFF for the team shows how much they value Rohr and the players. No surprise here. If they were valued, they would not be owed salaries and match bonuses.
    SMH.
    The other issue is we expect them to travel by boat on Friday and get a result on Saturday. Typical of us. Back in the days, players were expected to win matches on empty stomachs. Just go and win. How you go about it is your problem. And if you lose, you face the wrath of the people.
    I wish Rohr and the players all the best. With proper planning and travel arrangements, this match would have likely been a good win for us. If we get a good result, it will be down to the determination and desire of Rohr and the players.

    it is only in this part of the world that we see travels by air as safest, otherwise whether by air,road,sea nd rail, transportational systems carry equal risks;i wonder why there has been so much cries nd fears about the NFF’s decision to take the super eagles team to republic of benin by sea……so be it if it is going to reduce cost nd faster than by road……..no transportation system is safer than the other…we can only wish our boys success nd safe journey this weekend

     
  • It appears coach rohr will be sticking to his beloved 4-3-3 formation if fillers from the training camp of the Super Eagles is anything to go by. He split the team into two for a practice match, with one team comprising of players such as:

    OKOYE

    OLA EKONG. LEON. SANUSI

    NDIDI.

    ETEBO. ARIBO

    CHUKWUEZE. IWOBI

    OSIMHEN

    The second team comprising of players such as
    UZOHO

    AWAZIEM. ADELEKE SEMI. COLLINS

    SHEHU

    ANAYO. KELECHI.

    HENRY. MUSA.

    ONUACHU.

    Hope I got the players right? Guess the team that won? Kelechi’s team won the practice match with kelechi scoring twice and iwobi scoring the only goal for his side.
    Its just a practice game and one shouldn’t read much into it. But im suspecting that rohr may probably bench kelechi for osimhen. Kelechi Will probably enter after the half time. Hopefully the eagles would have scored before then. The midfield looks better with 3 combative midfielders in it. With the team expecting players like olise and ejaria (hopefully), the midfield will only get better with time. Whatever the formation used or players selected I wish the team victory in their two matches.

    90% sure the first list starts our match tomorrow. I feel he will stick to his 4-3-3. In the first leg, Collins had a bad day at the office as the squirrels really exploited our left wing.We missed Balogun seriously in that game (thank God he is back and in good form).For the left-back position now, I feel Zaidu will get the nod.
