  • Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) is the problem of Nigeria Football. Read that again. So many questions from yesterday’s match. God bless Osimehn for me.

    The stadium was like OSIMHEN, OSIMHEN, OSIMHEM, OSIMHEN. Good luck Super Eagles.

    The entire team did well, each and everyone of them. Though he wasn’t just a combustion in all ramifications, Osimhen was simply atmospheric against the Blue Sharks. Chigozie Awamzien though not a striker, is another lad in the mould of Osimhen, a steaming engine in a traditional Eagles spirit, he was clearly a freeholder. Rohr has materials to work it and has every reason to qualify us for the World Cup. Good luck Osimhen, Good luck Eagles.

    Osimhen couldn’t have done all did without team work, I’m glad he realized that. Good luck to the Super Eagles, God bless Nigeria.

    Now, what next? The first group stage is over and for the fact that dates and venue for the second group draws are yet to be announced, the boys deserve some rest and even Coach Rohr could take some few days out to holiday.

    Now, let’s look at the playoffs proper, next round will see the ten group winners from the group round drawn into five expected to play home and away games. The teams with maximum points will qualify for the WC. This is where our concentration now lies. Which country are we(SE) meeting? Are we ready to face any country in the second round? What are the possibles? Egypt had 14 points; Senegal closed their group with 16 points; Morroco with 18 points; Ghana pocketed 13. Looking at this, we are likely to meet either Egypt, Morroco, Senegal or Ghana in second round of the qualifiers. For me, bring any country for the Eagles take it a step after the other.

      Oseodion we can never be paired with either morrocco or Senegal, the top 5 seeded teams will be drawn against the bottom 5 seeded teams .these are the options for the super eagles, Egypt, Cameroon, Ghana, Dr Congo and mali

    Why are these guys celebrating a home draw against Cape Verde? If care is not taken, this team will not eventually qualify for the world cup. I saw a team bereft of ideas, very poor in all aspects. These Eagles are definitely not super
