    Skills workshop, I hailooo

  • SE will beat Tunisia on Sunday and I am so sure about it as these are my reasons
    1) SE is the only team in the Afcon that has not conceded a goal from open play while Tunisia has conceded 2 goals from open play.
    2) SE has scored against all it’s opponents so far in the Afcon while Tunisia has scored against only one opponent which is poor Mauritius.
    3) SE is playing on its home turf in Garouha because they have played all their games there and the home fans are behind them unlike Tunisia.
    4) SE has scored first in all the matches they have played so far and Tunisia has not conceded first and won the same game in this Afcon so far.
    5) SE plays the best Brand of football in the Afcon with a very devastating counter attack while Tunisia plays possessive football that in very vonulrable to counter attacks.
    6) SE has the compliment of their full squad while Tunisia has alot of absentees for the game due to Corona virus.
    7) SE has beaten a North African team already in this Afcon while Tunisia has been beaten by 2 west African countries already in this Afcon.
    You see it will take a very big miracle for Tunisia to spring an upset on Sunday except SE experience a very drastic and unexplainable lose of form within this few days to the match…… Best of luck to SE

    It will be a tough game. We can beat them, if we play the same way we played Egypt.

    Sir Akp your analysis is right one; this pentratingly opinion for Super Eagles can pass Tunisian team , because of these circumstances according to this cotext; Super Eagles have not failed from 16 round on Afcon. final since 1967.So I think SE will climb and ascend instead of Carthage Eagles Tunisia.

  • Simon is always realistic and respectful of the opposing team. Unlike Ahmed Musa. Never put down the opposing team. They have their own plans which may work for them while ours may not work. Tunisia are not here to just fall for any team. In all their matches, they were just unfortunate as they had the greater possession of ball. That can happen to any team including Nigeria. We may possess the play 80% but one chance they score. So I love this Moses Simon boy.
