    Corruption reduced Nigeria to a mere puppet. Our leaders who are not supposed to be leaders are there because of regional politics, religious bigotry, sectionalism, nepotism, and tribalism. See Morocco now thriving well. God gave Nigeria better human capital and abundant resources to be great but some useless uncultured humans moulded by the devil won’t let go of Nigeria. Nature will kill you if you don’t want peace and progress of Nigeria. God please help us.

  • Morocco & Senegal……Africa’s most-dreaded and fearsome sides; none other comes close at the moment!!

    Egypt, Ghana, CIV, Cameroon, Algeria, “UAR” and the likes can only watch from the periphery LOL

  • While some nations are going from strength to strength, others are rewriting records last achieved 4 decades ago – losing 4 straight games.

    GNB is even boasting to do a double over them. Shameful. Senegal a small nation are holders of 4 current trophies in football while some others are struggling to even be also ran.

    Afcon 2023 already has favorites. Progressive minds.
