  • They have started their confusionist again. The coach should start this an start that… When Madagascar beat us they said ordinary Madagascar team but when they beat Cameroon they said they are not a good team. That is Nigerians for you they with 3 side of their mouth. Now to the south African they qualified as one of the best loser and today they defeated the host nation and a team that won their match 100% that is what we always tell our people football is not mathematics. The Egyptians never expect what happened today may be they underrated the south African as a walk over for them just as Nigeria did to the Madagascar but they got the best shock of their live. I hope Nigeria team will take this south African team serious in the next match and hopefully and God willing we shall smile at the end of the team. Good luck to SE.

    Ok even if we beat Cameroon we still have to face Egypt in the quarter final.. LEEEMAOO!!! How market na???? I said it how are they sure Egypt will beat South Africa. South Africa don send una Egypt back to the pyramids.. it is SuperEagles vs Bafana Bafana… oya bring on Moh Salah. Football no be mouth. Almighty Egypt couldn’t beat SA, they’ve been anticipating the quarter final clash with Nigeria instead of focusing on South Africa and boom they got the shock of their lives.

    The competition just started from the knockout stage. Pretenders have gone home, contenders remain. This shows how tough our qualifying group was yet we qualified with a game to spare. Our group is the only qualifying group so far with the two teams in the quarter final. Now we are facing Bafana Bafana. SuperEagles should face the encounter with all seriousness. It’s high time we start taking South Africa very seriously.

    They’ve beaten the the SuperEagles and the Pharaohs on home soil therefore, they will be feeling at home. It’s going to be another fascinating game and I hope my SuperEagles carry the day.

        Thanks deo. Yesooooo!! Congratulations for the resounding victory yesterday. We must take South Africa very seriously indeed. Hopefully we’re gradually getting there. 

         
  • Second final before the semi-final is upon us. But Prof and his boys have given us a good/test and preparation for this second final.
    Against SA,it would be another cracker. However,for me our greatest threats are our brethren from West Africa&I include Cameroon in this.
    I wish them well.

    We’ll need shehu in the right flank of the super eagle’s defence rather than awaziem. Omeruo needs to start the match with ekong and aino. Ndidi needs to be strong for 90 mins with etebo and chukwueze needs to start the match with Musa.these two pacy wingers must be at their best with onyekuru and osimhen as substitutes depending on what the game brings. If our defence is jittery with mistakes then we may lose the match but if we are determined and play a massive defence and a coordinated attack then we’ll win. Wish the super eagles all the best.
