I guess our high-profile friendlies accounted for our drop. We will come strong again
the same high profile friendlies that NFF and salisu and Buhari. conspired to send a second B team to execute was that not when the clamor by fans and Ex Internationals for NPFL games saying that we need to try them so it has now become high-profle abi? lol!!! When will Nigeria learn???. why won’t we drop when Nigeria doesn’t take anything seriously!.When I tell people Nigeria is Nigeria’s problem you think its a joke. This country continuously sabotages it’s own progress it is sad.
Thought you will blame Rohr
I tell u @tayo. Was expecting him to mention Rohrs name but surprisingly he didn’t. If it were omo9ja, he would have.
Omo9ja is a regressive individual who was mainly responsible for the undeservedly sacking of our former Oga Rohr and thereby responsible for Nigeria absence from the World Cup this year. To this day, omo9ja still talk bad about Oga Rohr and that is fair.
Cold hard facts.
Tunisia that leapfrogged us played 4, won 3 and drew 1 (10 points).
In that same time Nigeria played 4 lost 2 and won 2 (6 points)
Your team is not going to the World Cup so what do you expect? By December you will be 100th on the ranking…lol
Better not to go to the world cup, than to go there to COLLECT WOTOWOTO.
WOTOWOTO awaits the BANKU SHYSTERS in Qatar.
What happened to Zaire in 1974 world cup is about to SHELE on top of Ghana all over again!
No be by FIFA RANKING…
U dey PLAY WORLD CUP????
