“I know that Nigeria have won the AFCON competitions on three occasions and I know that automatically they will go there to participate and win. There is this recognition from other African countries that Nigeria is always a force to reckon in a major competition in any major football event. There is nothing we have not won. We have done it before in 1980, we did it again in 1994 and 2013.”


Nigeria has been pitted in Group D alongside Egypt, Sudan and Guinea-Bissau. The bi-annual tournament will commence on January 9 and end on February 6, 2022.

    Is Ugbade having a reverie of our past exploits? Is he not aware of the rumble in the glass house regarding the head coach?

     
    • I believe he actually knows, but chooses to have a positive view on it rather than the negative and there is nothing wrong with that. He has always had a positive attitude even when things were against him as a team player under Westerhoff.

       
  • When I told you Nigerians think Nigeria is a footballing giant and are stuck min the past then this is it. Nduka’s head is clearly in the skies and he is not in reality yet clearly the sme whith most in the forum. How can it be that the reason we will win the Afcon is because we have won it in 1980 and 1994 and 2013 and not the fact that we need to assemble a vert sound squad with no sentiments and fairy tales of so called experience class players i.e Musa Lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

    NIGERIA WAKE THE HELL UP FRM YOUR SLUMBER PLEASE!!!!. FOOTBLL IS NOT STUCK IN 1994 FOOTBLL TODAY IS WHERE IF, MAJORITY OF YOUR SQUAD IS NOT MADE UP OF PLAYRERS IN TOP LEAGUES WITH THE BEST INFRASTRUCTURE AND FOOTBALLING PHILOSOPHY FORGET IT YOU ARE NOT WINNING SHISHI ON THE INTERNATIONAL STAGE, OR AFRICA AS MOST OF THE TOP AFRICAN TEAMS HAVE GRASPED THIS THEROY AND A RUNNING FULL SPEED WITH IT. EVEN NORTH AFRICANS WHO HAVE ARGUABLE THE BEST LEAGUES IN AFRICA WILL PICK THIER TOP PLAYERS IN EUROPE FIRST BEFORE REINFORCING THE TEAMS WITH THIER LOCALLY BASED PLAYERS AND IF ALL THIER PLAYERS IN EUROPE ARE IN THE TOP 5 LEAGUES, THEY WOULD ONLY USE THIER ERUOPEAN BASED PLAYERS !!!!!. PLAYERS BASED IN AFRICA CAN NOT COMPETE WITH THOSE IN EUROPE!!! . NDUKA IS LIKE CHRISTIAN CHUKWU THEY FEEL THAT NIGERIA CAN ASSEMBLE A TEAM FROM THIS SHAMBOLIC DISORGANISED NPFL LEAGUE THAT CAN”T EVEN BEAT TOWNSHIP ROLLERS OF BOTSWANA NAWA O.

     
    • @Ugo Iwunze, am not sure you read his statement at all. You are just here running your mouth as usual. He said “With good preparations we can win AFCON”. That does not mean he is saying that Nigeria is currently making preparations in the right way??? It is a statement of fact that only good preparations not just assembling players as you have been clamouring for ages with the inclusion of Dessers, Awoniyi etc. to the team . This also goes back to you again as an armchair critic that doesn’t think. You believe Rhor wasn’t making preparation by his continued use of players like Simon and co. ??? Then please explain team formation and making them understand themselves any better than That???

    Nigeria is down in everything. Nigeria doesn’t believe in real planning. I would be surprised if zoning does not remotely come in to play as to who makes the squard. There was a time Mikel obi had to foot the flight bill Nigerian team to World cup Pray we don’t meet Cape Verde again.

    Nigerian have a winning mentality that always works for us and that is why we succeed outside our shores.Your mentality counts alot and we have it.So forget whatever we might be going through as a country,we still remain a force to contend with.

     
    • Thats the same mentality that is deluding us to think Musa at 42 is still a world beater keep fooling yourself @SAMUEL. You are very good at that.

      The mentality is good when used in the right context as you explained in a business setting okay fine. but in football No my brother. I don’t buy that shit and it is the same belief that Nduka and Christian will use to fool themselves to thinking our Die hard mentality will not give us a reality check like Mexico did a few months go. Bro Like I stated Go to a Ferarri race with a Jallopin and u will get what you are asking for Nigerian or not. I rest my case.

       
      • @Ugo Iwunze there you go again, how do you know if I may ask that Ahmed Musa is 42 and not the age he says. Please present real facts Here, am assuming you have a copy of his birth certificate right??? Or you just believe in rumours and sentiments???

         
        • @Ben he is definitely lost way more speed than someone who should be 29yrs old. neither is his belle looking 29 yrs old lol!

    This will be great news if it is true Victor Moses is considering coming back.

     
  • Ayphillydegreat 6 months ago

    JayJay, Kanu, Eguavoen and Finidi most likely to lead SuperEagles to Cameroon. This Tales by Moonlight and Things Fall apart movies are very interesting Lmao!!!

     
    • Hopefully they will recall your guy Aminu Umar to replace Iheanacho….

       
      • Footballfanatic 6 months ago

        What??? Lol

         
      • Ayphillydegreat 6 months ago

        Lmao!! @deo. That’s what you can expect from this kind of scenarios. Iheanacho is doing ok since 2016 while I can’t even recall whether Aminu still plays football.

          He actually played for Caykur Rizespor in there 4-0 loss to fenerbahce last weekend. Dude has been stagnant in Turkey.
