Ahaa, its fastidious discussion about this piece of writing here at this
weblog, I have read all that, so at this time me also commenting at this place.

Nigerian national team keeps evolving

The Nigerian national team is evolving despite the absence of many key players however the attack is not as sharp as expected and that is the negative side of the team.

i want appreciate the SUPER EAGLE for their performance against Uruguay it is luck let look focus again Spain so that we can will to Qualified for semi-final. i also want Keshi should not be sorrowful in mind for not bring MOSES, EMINEKE, and Onazi it is God that just want u to know their are other player who can still play like them, Keshi keep it up God will surely proof himself at end Match on Sunday for himself.

Nigeria won the game!

Nigeria won that game now! Ask Jonah Jang. Is it not in our country that 16 is greater than 19? Then 1 must be greater than 2.
For us in Nigeria, those who say Nigeria lost are simply mad. Abi, didn't the bookmakers predict a 2-1 win for Nigeria?


Well the game that kept me awake when i should be asleep nearlly ended in disapointment,had mikeal not scored that goal imagine what would have being the fate of nigeria.the fact remains that Emenike and odemwingie be brought to play cos thier technicalitie is what we need to face spain squarlly.keshi shoud do some thing or make reshovelment against the next game with spain

Leave Keshi to do his job.

It's high time Nigerians learnt to accept defeat and not just blame the coach for just one lost in 12 matches. Why this attitude of 'hossana today, crucify him tomorrow". The coaching crew is doing a great job and need our full support. Kudos to the boys.

BREAKING News - FIFA disallows Uruguay's second goal

Ladies & gentlemen, reports on FIFA website indicates that Uruguay's second goal has been cancelled. Reason: The ball was too fast. I mean too hot & quick. FIFA believes that the player should have hit the ball less hard so as to give Enyeama time to see the ball.

See the website:

re: Let Keshi do his job, at least he gets results

All you arm-chair critics, Please let Keshi do his job, at least he gets results. You can see that the young lads are playing good footbaall and they matched Uruguay in every respect except finishing. We have strikers who are all injured, like Moses and Emenike. What we need to do is to get natural wingers and a creative midfielder that can feed the striker.
SE has been suffering in goal scoring since the exit of the Yekini and Amokachi partnership. Amokachi does all the hard work and feeds Yekini who puts them away. Again those days we have natural wingers like Friday Elaho and Finidi George. These are lacking in current strike force. Nigeria has been struggling to score goals since those veteran left the scene; not even the Kanu,Ikpeba, Martins, Yaks could score as the Yekinis did when every team in Africa fear the SE

Mr.keshi, when you go for

Mr.keshi, when you go for real war go with your finest army. Because you won a road side war doesn't mean you won the battle. Where's Emenike, martins,Obi, uche etc. Forget pride and get this armies. Who's as stubborn as balotelli? But Italian squad needs him, he's a great finisher. You kept me awake all night to watch Ideye and musa playing like uncircumcised wimps. Why do you experiment when the whole world brought their Best of the best? This is a battle not a war.

Keshi, the time for learning curve and experimentation is over

It is time for Keshi to have a permanent squad with adequate backup for injury. We cannot go to the 2014 World with only much relied upon eleven players, without adequate provision for injury.

For this, Yobo, Odemwingie, Enaremo, Martins and Ike should be recalled to the Super Eagles squad. Experience matters. It does not matter whether these get little chance to play or not.

The match with Uruguay was there for us to win but for some few lapses. While the defence and mid-field stood their ground, the forwards were not actually there. But the defence, especially the right and left backs should not be going forward too much to become outside right or left. Uruguay would not have got the chance to score their wining goal had Ambrose, the right defence, not wandered far away from his duty post.

The Super Eagles played well and Mikel reignited his past before his Club, Chelsea, grounded him as a mere defensive mid-field.

Nigerian team was fantastic

The Nigerian team was fantastic and were glorious in defeat ! I haven't seen a Nigerian national team play the ball on the ground so much like this in a long time ; credit to the coaches.
