            You’ll die a miserable death if you don’t find your way out of this forum. You think you can joke with around with everyone right. You’ll get what you deserve in due time as you have decided to continually cross your boundary. I shall continue laying cursed on you every single day I find you post your garbage on this site until you get overwhelmed by the grave you’re digging for yourself and your linage. If you don’t leave this forum untimely death will befall you. Mark my word yourself and yaw. The fingers are pointing at you two.

          • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

          • Chima E Samuels 2 years ago

            It was my prayer to find animals like you when I was in your demonic country so I can torture you but to no avail. But in December I will likely visit and hope it happens. You keep running your mouth but when you meet a Nigerian you zip them. I know in real life you’re just a kid.

  • ADEYEMI Temitope 2 years ago

    Nigeria 1:0 Cote d’ivoire first half

  • ADEYEMI Temitope 2 years ago

    Nigeria 1:1 CIV

    • I pray Nigeria loses this game. They shouldn’t move forward with the grandfathers they call U20. Nonsense!

      • Your papa @Yaw. Jealousy jelomi go kill you and all Ghananian impostors suffering from inferiority complex against Nigeria. All that matters is our boys thrashed your Black S 2-0 and dumped you guys at group stage! Every other thing is bonus.

        • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

          2 goals isn’t thrash!!

          U don’t understand what thrash means lol

          • DANURCHMAN 2 years ago

            Trash means, to be soundly beaten in a game. 2:0 is a sound beating. Just to educate you a bit.

        • Your mama…group stage champions!…lol

        • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

          Ur education is wack apuu 

          Trashing in football isn’t 2:0 score line 

          Get that into ur GENERATOR FUME head lol

          Shelve ur education into ur PHAT ASS haha

  • KENNETH 2 years ago

    This Flying Eagles better take there chances. The ivorians would come out strong in the second half

  • Emecco 2 years ago

    What’s the current scores pls?

  • Ayphillydegreat 2 years ago

    That chance missed by Okoye definitely came back to haunt us. Ivory Coast are playing with a chip on their shoulders. I like our boys though it’s coming down to another epic West African derby. Good game so far. 

  • Greenturf 2 years ago

    Nigeria have fluffed lots of chances they should have scored.If you want to go to the world cup you must earn it,you must show determination to score half chances let alone begging ones otherwise you pay dearly for it.
    The Ivorians are a very good side.They press well and force our boys to commit fouls,I noted this system used by Burkina Faso in the second half in our last group game,I mentioned our knockout opponents will follow that template,im not surprised Ivory Coast are using that against us.With two yellow cards already against us a red could just gift it to the Ivorians.
    Nonetheless,our boys have showed great character against equally a very good side,its anybody’s game let’s enjoy the second half hoping our boys carry the day.If they don’t?It would be another disappointment though not anything we are not used to lately anyways.
    May God help Bosso and his boys to conquer this very difficult Ivorian side.

    • Amen o! It is a fabulous game though. Both teams are going at it hammer and tongs.

  • Bosso’s boys are finding the openings to create guilt edge chances. They are just failing to put these away. They should have scored 2 more goals by down if they had been more clinical. Plus the long range shots still continue to trouble the Niger Republic air traffic controllers.

  • I know long range shots are a staple of Bosso’s approach but his boys should practice harder to shoot with better precision and keep the shots within range.

    Too many of these shots are comically wayward!

    • Greenturf 2 years ago

      @deo only you and I saw something good in Bosso prior to this tournament,others dissed him.
      He has qualified us for the final playoffs yet no one has lauded him for this great achievement,had he failed the whole house will destro him on here haha..

  • KENNETH 2 years ago

    Abeg bench this yahaya biko, he is just wasting clear cut chances. can’t believe we not leading. This is unbelievable. Boys are playing fantastic

  • But for Nigeria’s goalkeeper, Ivory Coast would have won, easy! He pulled off 2 unbelievable point blank saves that he had no business saving. Great game but Ivory Coast looked the more menacing in the dying minutes despite Nigeria dictating play for long periods.

    It remains anyone’s game.

    Nigeria should have buried some of the chances they painstakingly created in the first half!

  • We don’t have a team yet. The Nigerian boys seems to be having the upper hand because they are bigger and stronger than the Ivorians. However, in terms of technique, they are below average. There is a part that the coach plays in technique but there is also a part that the players must play. The Nigerian players seems not to have it. They can’t hold the ball and string 2 to 3 complete passes together. They just balloon the ball into the opponent half of the field or 18 yard box, hoping for miracle to happen.
    They should thank their keeper because the Ivorians could have scored in the dying minute of the game.

    • Greenturf 2 years ago

      Are you serious?Are you watching a different game??The Nigerian team are dominating they are stringing passes but lack experience in the final third

      • Nigerian team is dominating with obviously players that could easily pass for over age. I know a lot of us will not like this but that is the truth. Are you going to say the guy that played the penalty is averagely under 20?

    • Josh, I usually respect your views but I don’t think what you wrote above accurately reflects how the Flying Eagles have been playing. The have strung passes together and they have created clear cut chances. Wastefulness in front of goal has been their downfall in this game.

      They are physical as you said but they are also moderately skillful.

      • To string more passes together is not the real issue here. At most 2 passes together and the next one is ballooned into the opponent’s 18 yard box. There is no organization in their play. It is mere share physical energy. The only player I’ll pick out is the goalkeeper. The rest are either average or below average. We should look at the bigger picture here. What happens when this set of players meet the North Africans. What you want at under 17 and under 20 levels are players who are relatively young and can trap, hold, and move the ball. You want to see a team that is organized.

        • Josh, they strung more than 2 passes together at any one time. The Flying Eagles also created plentiful goals scoring opportunities.

          I don’t think they player are highly exceptional but their skills are adequate enough for this level of football. They can only get better.

          • You see, I’ll agree with you. Reason is because they were assembled in at most 2 weeks. But honestly we will have to look for better players to add to the team. Some of them can improve but better plsyers need to be added to the team.

        • Greenturf 2 years ago

          @Josh have you played football at a higher level at some point?I don’t know how else you want this boys to play at this level?Do you think the Ivorians are some crap side or you think every team is a prey to Nigeria?
          Give this boys credit for their display,if you understand football you will know they met a solid opponent yet they owned them I will laud them for this deserving victory.

          • I dont’t want you to misunderstand me. I have not said the boys are bad. I said some of them are average and some, below average. I also mentioned that the keeper is good. At least from the performance he put up today. I pointed out some of their weaknesses and reasons for their domination of the game. Some of us on this platform agreed with some of the reasons I pointed out. The Ivorians were a good side and organized. Did we dominate them, yes we absolutely did. However, there are some of the players that can improve and some that will need to give way to better players, just as I have pointed out. I said we should look at the bigger picture, i.e. look at the nations cup proper and the possibility of Nigeria dominating it; something that every football loving Nigerian will want to see. The team has tried and done very well but we should not also rule out the need for them to improve.

    • The Nigerians are over aged…simple!

    • KENNETH 2 years ago

      Turn of your Tv if you can’t appreciate what this boys are doing. So being physical is not part of the game

  • KENNETH 2 years ago

    This Yahaya is just a bastard i swear. Look at clear chnaces he could have buried or pass

    • Greenturf 2 years ago

      True Yahaya though his introduction brought energy to the team but he’s only pace and power he needs to use his head more

  • Diamond Ng 2 years ago

    Scores please

  • 2-1 to 9ja

  • Penalty for Nigeria, no VAR to override it. But it looks soft to me sha! Fair play to the Nigerian striker.

    Goal 2:1 Nigeria.

    • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

      That’s a dubious penalty wow 

      The Ivorians are been robbed 

      Africa referees 

      • KENNETH 2 years ago

        Maybe your Tv needs some kenke. Don’t know what was dubious about the penalty. What of the other one that resulted in a corner kick. Dr dry please stop pretending you Ghanaian we know who you are

        • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

          U simply retarded lol

          Dubious penalty 

          Cheating bokoms lol

    • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

      The Nigerian striker looked like 38 yrs haha 

      Cheating Nigerians haha 

      No wonder they don’t progress 

      The referee has won the match for Nigeria 

      Africa referees are disgrace wow 

      • You go cry die for Accra! whether you like it or not Nigeria progresses to Egypt AFCON enroute the World cup in Indonesia and Ghana got booted out at group stage of WAFU just like Comoros Island booted their Black Stars from theie group in Cameroon Afcon in January 2022.

        • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

          U disturb BOKOM idiot lol

          Ghana won this USELESS CUP only last time 

          Comoros booted Ghana out but Ghana turned out and KICKED these BABE CHICKENS out  lol

          We are going to the GREATEST HUMAN Theatre on earth whiles u saddled ur self with this BOGUS CUP 

          U BOKOM FART 

        • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

          And Ghana did to the BABE EAGLES haha 

          Ghana did this to ur BABAE EAGLES haha 


          We are going to the GREATEST THEATRE ON EARTH!!

          Comoros ll beat us and we ll turned around and BEAT OUR WIVES haha 

    • Thanks for being straightforward on the penalty. I’m sure VAR would have overruled it because it was actually soft. It could even have gotten the Nigerian player a yellow card. But I will also blame the Ivorian player who initially lunged forward to tackle the Nigerian player.
      Funny enough most people here will not see it penalty a soft one since it favoured Nigeria this time around.

      • Greenturf 2 years ago

        It looked soft though I felt sorry for the Ivorians.
        That wasn’t a penalty.
        However,it was a reward for Nigerian dominance,we were better than the equally good Ivorians,both teams deserves to represent Africa in the world cup.
        A great match indeed.I was entertained to 120mins of explosive football.
        Meanwhile, Daniel Daga has won back to back man of the match.
        That young lad has a great future to think he’s just a 16yrs old marshalling our midfield with aplomb.

        • Thanks for your comment. This is to show that in football, we win some and lose some. The truth just as you pointed out is that, if Nigeria never attacked them like they did, they may never have gotten that penalty, however soft it may have looked.

  • Nigeria won 2-1

  • Selfmade and Doe go hang ur charcoal ass!



    It’s time for Ghanaian on this platform to start barking.

    • Selfmade KING 2 years ago

      Dubious penalty apuu!!

      No wonder AFRICA football doesn’t progress 

      The Ivorians has been robbed 

      No wonder we don’t progress apuu 

      U jubilating over a dubious penalty lol
