    It is very hard for a rat to fight an elephant. If you don’t fear Nigerian National soccer girls, there is something wrong with you. We don’t need a full house for the Sao Tome, could have used ‘Edo Princess’ to take care of them though.

  • Una Mouth dey always day too big. haba Na in make lady luck dey always never day our side. can you people not be humble. Nigerians una too arrogant mehn….

    • But it is the truth.It is like Sao Tome going to play Germany or Brazil.What do you expect? Nigeria is in the same level with these countries right.Thus, the fear of Nigeria is the beginning of football wisdom.

      God Bless you. Nigerians nawaaoo.

  • Good decision, they would have wasted about 100k dollars on flight to and fro . hotel, and payment to team players and staffs and then got beaten 20 zero. I hope CAF will not fine their fA.

  • Complete Sports needs to proof read their articles before publishing. The second paragraph says “The Super Eagles were scheduled to take on Sao Tome and Principe in the first leg first round qualifying fixture this weekend.” Instead of saying the super falcons.

    I am quite ashamed to those Nigerians who were regurgitating nonsense, saying Nigeria
    Is over doing it by using their best players against sao Tome and Principe and that is why people hate us. They should be ashamed of themselves . This is football ⚽ you play with your best team. We should be happy to have good teams to install fear to our opponents. That is called respect. Brazil, Germany, Spain etc can not play the football team of Malta or Macedonia without using their best players. Please think wise and speak with wisdom before you cause problems to Nigerians. Peace be unto you brothers/sisters

      Senegal didn’t execute their last qualifiers with their super stars. Their under-23 i believe played the game. So you point is just senseless, like the mumu NFF executives. You complaining you have no funds to pay all this foreign players, then why not collate local team to play them, it’s not like we needed the game to qualifier. So it is you tht is saying nonsense here.
