    Though an inconsequential qualifier match, I still think this will afford the new technical crew the opportunity to assess the various Super Eagles’ players first hand.

    Preview on Nigeria vs Tanzania match
    Both teams are already out of running for the afcon 2017 match, but the super eagles will use this match as a preparation for the up coming world cup qualifying campaign were we have Algeria, Cameroon etc.
    Moreover it will be a good avenue to see the new super eagles coach to know his tactical and technical abilities. It will equally afford the players a chance of meeting up and interacting with the new coach.

    Sincerely speaking, the match is indeed a dead rubber with virtually nothing at stake apart from national honour, and it's integrity to protect. This is because if (God forbid) the Super Eagles lose , Nigerians would no longer see it as a dead rubber anymore but a complete national disgrace. This is clearly an opportunity for the newly appointed German Coach to endear himself to the already pessimistic average Nigerian fan. Moreso, it proves as a good warm up match for the more significant upcoming world cup qualifier with Zambians. I wish the super Eagles the best. Finally i want to predict a scoreline of 2-0 in favour of the Super Eagles.

    Though the match is a dead rubber, I believe Nigeria will carry the day as the boys will be playing to impress the new technical adviser. And coming from not so impressive outing of all our national teams, ofcourse except from the Olympic u23 team that baged bronze in Rio, they will be playing to appease Nigerians. The technical bench have done right in including the boys from the Olympics who proved themselves, and our best legs home and abroad. I believe its a new dawn as the timing is right so that we look forward to having a good and organized team when the world Cup qualifying round kicks off.

    MY NIGERIA VS TANZANIA MATCH PREVIEW (3/9/2016)

    As nigeria get set to take on Taifa stars of tanzania in her last afcon qualifying home game though both teams have nothing to play as egypt have occupy the final spot to afcon as the group leaders. in other words with new manager coming in for the eagles there is still pride to play for in these encounter to give the new manager a new start.
    the last time both side meet it was in tanzania it ends 0-0 with Taifa stars having nothing to lose/playfor am backing the super eagles to score and win these game.

    I think that this match will actually give us an insight ob what to expect from the new boss, and also serve as a preparation for our upcoming world cup qualifier against zambia.
    If can the super eagles can take this match more seriously even if it a dead rubber, it can actually boost our points on the fifa rankings, our current position on the rankings is not appealing to we nigerians.
    I tip the eagles to win by 3-0. Best wishes to them!

    This match between Nigeria and Tanzania will give the new super eagles coach a chance to prove his worth, and give us a reason whether to believe he is the right man for the job or not..

    On my own opinion i see Nigeria winning the match because they will want to impress the new coach an am using this period to tell the new coach Genort Rohr not to listen to the NNF and focus on is job all will need is result and good football and not to use settlement to select the players am sure with that will be victory at the end of the game.   Bolaji Ibrahim Mafoluku Oshodi Lagos

    there is a saying that says and I quote “there is no use crying over spilled milk”..in t he light of these I would want to term this contest as an experiment…the new super eagles technical director in person of Garnot Rohr will have the opportunity to make a statement and impression on the Nigerian fans..first impression they say last longer…whatever the outcome of this contest would determine the kind of mindset Nigerians will have towards the coach and the team entirely
    I fully expect the manager to play to the strength of the players at his diaposal..we have the likes of kelechi iheanacho, odion ighalo and our newly found national hero John obi Mikel..if dis guys are fully utilised,then the super eagles will once again be a force to be reckoned with in Africa football.
    and finally I predict a scoreline of 3-0 in favour of the super eagles.

    There is no iota of doubt, that this match is an inconsequential one, considering the fact that both teams, our darling Super Eagles and the Taifa stars of Tanzania are out of reckoning for the AFCON 2017, but, for us as Nigerians, is there anything like INCONSEQUENTIAL when our National teams, especially the Super Eagles are involved? Be that as it may, I expect Nigeria to win, especially as we have invited a strong team for this encounter.Looking ahead, I think this will encounter, and the fact that we have our full compliment of stars for this game, will afford the new Technical crew the opportunity to assess the various Super Eagles’ players first hand, and to kickstart the bonding process.Also, both NFF and the Technical crew got their plans spot on, as it is clear that we plan to use this match as a dress rehearsal for our up-coming World Cup qualifier away to Zambia, in a group that also includes Algeria and Cameroon.
    Moreover it will be a good avenue for all Nigerians to see the new Super Eagles Technical Adviser, his tactical and technical abilities, and possibly the direction our football is headed under him. It will equally afford the players a chance of meeting up and interacting with him.Finally, like every Nigerian out there, I expect nothing short of victory for Nigeria, though it would not come on a platter of gold. We will win because it would do our confidence a world of good.Silas A. Usitaka Jr.   Ughelli, Delta State.

    As the SUPER EAGLES OF NIGERIA and the TAIFA STARS OF TANZANIA are both getting ready to face each other in what I refer to as an exhibition match simply because they both have nothing to play for, nevertheless the march is still worth playing for. Nigeria has a new foreign coach, it will be an avenue for the SUPER EAGLES coach to get to knw his squad ahead of the world cup qualifications process. I hope nigeria get the maximum 3 points from this game. Samuel from Somolu, Lagos.

         The super Eagles of Nigeria vs the Taifa stars of Tanzania is going to be a very interesting and a keenly contested match. The super eagles will be regrouping for the first time under new german manager Gernot Rohr. Despite both teams already out of contention to qualify for the nations cup, i think both teams are going to give their all to try and grind out a positive result. In this game i see the NIgerian players playing to impress the coach. This game will serve as a preparatory game for the world cup qualifier.     The last time this two side met ended in a goaless draw, so the taifa stars will not make it easy for the super eagles. But with the quality of players invited, i see the super eagles winning this match with the likes of mikel, musa, iheanacho, moses and iwobi having a great game. I will predict Nigeria 2-0 Tanzania.

    Though, the match between Nigeria and Tanzania is a dead rubber, but there are several things at stake.  The invited players should see it as an opportunity to impress the new German Coach, Gernot Rohr; likewise, it serves as a tune up game for the new coach to know how ready the invited players are in preparation for the forthcoming world cup qualifiers, especially, in a bid to know how best to field each player in order not to play them out of positions. Furthermore, the match is one of the matches Super Eagles should use to redeemed their battered image in African football in particular, and global football in general.  A handsome win in that match would be a morale booster for both the players and the coach.  It is a high time Nigeria should start recording wide margin wins against smaller teams as of old in order to create fear in them.  Nigeria needs a gallant play and a gallant score-line against Tanzania!

    This is a good solid test game for the new super eagles manager to look into the abilities, technicalities and tactical depth of the team even though Tanzania and Nigeria have nothing to play for as far as African Nations Cup is concerned.
    Even though no chance to qualify again, i believe it will be a good game in as much i know every player will want to impress their new manager and with the new stadium, it will be a game to behold.
    I expect a good win for the Nigerians and putting further smile on our faces again on a 2-0 goal account with Iheanacho, Musa, Victor moses and Mikel combining well.

    Nigeria vs Tanzania Match. This game is unique and important in various ways, apart from be an opportunity for the new coach to assess his players for the first time, it also serves as an opportunity for Nigerian to also evaluate the new technical adviser at the home front. For Nigerian who has also been clamouring for a foreign coach, is an opportunity to compare his performance with a local coach. God bless Nigeria as i wish the Super Eagles best of luck.

           What an interesting game its going to be as the super eagles of Nigeria welcomes Tanzania Taifa stars to Godswill Akpabio stadium in uyo for the second leg tie in the group which os the last game in the Africa Nations cup qualifier. Both teams have already been eliminated and will npt be able to qualify for the African cup of Nations irrespective of the outcome of this game. the first leg tie between this two team ended in a barren draw in Dares sallam. but i expect the super eagles to win this one convincingly under new coach bernot rohr.              For the super eagles, i think this fixture will provide with a great opportunity  to fine tune thier world cup preparation against the CHipolopolo of Zambia. A victory against tanzania will also serve as a moral booster towards the game. This ga,me will also give the players the opportunity to meet with the new coach.                    The Taifa stars will be hoping to have a decent performance against the eagles, they will also have to play for pride. But i don't see them beeing able to stop the eagles. With victor moses returning back to the team playing along with mikel, ighalo, musa, onazi and others its going to be a sweet victory. the eagles are going to unleach the anger of not qualifying for he Nations cup on the tanzanians. probable scoreline will be 3-0 in favour of the super eagles of nigeria.

    Well as far as am concern this match is a walkover for the Super Eagles and we are likely to see them play an entertaining football just like they do every now and then after missing out in a Continental tournaments let’s use 2006 Wc qualifier as a case of study whereby the payers were chosen the matches they play in which led to us loosing the ticket to Angola thereafter they played the last game against Zimbabwe with seriousness.
    Thi is just opportunity for Rohl to checkmate the lapses in the team and reignite the fighting spirit that left the team long time ago by injecting new bloods in the squad to make Fight for shirt a competitive one as the current bunch of players in the team believes they are better than the others, The similarities btw England and Nigeria cannot be ignored,they both footballing Nations with talented players but they’ve got no teams..Rohl should make hay when the sun is out..

Tanzania has good squads, a world class coach, but you should’t forget that the Eagles are made up of talented players around the continent, that has fighting spirits in the likes of musa, ighalo, moses, mikel etc. So i give it up for the Eagles to beat Tanzania 2-0.

    Nigeria vs Tanzania Preview
    First of all, let us look at the level of preparation for the two team starting from Nigeria. Nigeria under the new technical adviser Rohr will be hoping to impress the manager who has invited the best players for the encounter. With the likes of Mikel, Moses, Musa, Onazi, Ighalo, Iheanacho and the rest of the players in camp. Nigeria started their first training under the new technical adviser with the big names in camp i believe Nigeria is good to go, on the other hand the Tanzania team has invited their best players for the game and are preparing very well to face Nigeria come September 3 upon the fact that the game is a dead rubber still is going to be a great cracker between super eagles of Nigeria and taifa stars of Tanzania.
    Going into the game proper i see Nigeria winning the match because the Nigerian players will like to impress the new technical adviser been that this is his first test as a coach of Nigeria team, so players will like to prove their worth so as to be a member of his team. On the side of Tanzania team they will like to come to Nigeria home ground and beat them in front of their home fans.
    Above all things i expect Nigeria to win the match considering the caliber of players on ground for the match and as a Nigerian fan i am i predict the match to end 3:1 in favour of Nigeria.

    The Nigeria/ Tanzania match, though a mere formality, is important for two reasons: 1. It will prepare the team for the upcoming world Cup qualifiers. 2. It will help improve our FIFA ranking.
    However, it is equally important that the team gets to know the new gaffer and to get to understand his football philosophy since we are in a rebuilding process. This is a new beginning for the National team. Emeka Eke from Ajah, Lekki, Lagos.

    Nigeria vs Tanzania match this Saturday, though a formality both countries having failed to qualify for next years’ Nations Cup, has pride at stack.

    But I am particularly happy at the attitude of the invited players for their early arrival in camp. Perhaps they want to be in the good books of the new coach so as to enjoy regular call up to the national team.

    The coach too must be commended for inviting a blend of home based players, regular and some forgotten foreign based players and some bronze winning Olympic players.

    I expect a tough encounter as both countries want to end the campaign on high. The match will not witness many goals and I see Nigeria taking the full points.

    Though the two countries have nothing to lose or at stake at the same time,it's going to be a good game as it will surely be used for FIFA ranking for both countries..The match will be used to access the quality of our newly appointed coach and to know the state and condition of our players,for this type of match I believe the coach should not bank on hearsay ,he should call and work with dedicated young players ,with this I see Nigeria at the next World Cup Awe Ayodele ……boluwaji Ibadan

    Though the match is a dead rubber but I think it will afford the New coach to familiarize with the players, know their strengths and weaknesses. Also, since the World Cup qualifier is just around the corner, it will really help the coach to plan ahead of the qualifiers.

    Even though the match is inconsequential. We will have to play for our pride. Also, it’s a good opportunity for the new Coach to know the lads and even use the match to prepare for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers which is around the corner.

    A very crucial match it’s going to be between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Taifa stars of Tanzania indeed considering their positions in the group.
    I personally will recommended the Technical Adviser of the super eagles to review the previous matches played by the Super eagles, pinpoint their loopholes, and proffer very decisive solutions to patch up the leakages for a better display by the Super Eagles.

    I keep wondering why people feel there is nothing to play for in this Nigeria/Tanzania game as the AFCON is out of the reach of both countries. There is our national pride at stake. There is a new coach at the helm for Nigeria, hence all the players want to impress and put their names in his good book. Most importantly, think of what will happen to us in the next monthly FIFA rankings if we lose or fail to beat “lowly” Tanzania at home. Let’s go booooyyyysss!!! Up Super Eagles!!!

    the Nigeria Vs Tanzania match is the first official baptism of fire for the new coach ( Gernot Rohr ) of the Super Eagles team who has seen it fit to invite some of our best legs to play against the Taifa stars. This will afford the new technical crew the opportunity to assess the players invited.

    furthermore, the invited players will also be playing for pride and also to impress and reward the coach for the confidence he has in them. even Mikel Obi will definitely be the happiest as he will be playing alongside a more matured and experienced players like Nosa igiebor, Wilfred Ndidi, Onazi, Ahmed Miss, Iheanacho, Moses, Ighalo to mention a few unlike the once he played with in Rio Olympics. the burden of the team won’t be shouldered solely on him now.

    Moreover, the Taifa stars of Tanzania headed by coach Charles Boniface Mkwasa have insisted that they have more than pride to play for in uyo and that they are giving it a hundred shows they are not here to be picking balls from their own net. coach Charles Boniface stated that they want to improve their FIFA ranking and be among the top hundred nations in the world as they are currently ranked 124th best in the world.
    finally, for their trip Coach Charles leaves out TP Mazembe striker Thomas ulimwengu and young Africans right back Abdul Mohammed due to injuries. Simba SC midfielder Mwinyi Kazimoto has also been dropped.back into the team is Yanga forward Simon Msuva , while Muzamil Yassin of Simba, David Mwantika (Azam FC), Jamal Mnyate , (Simba SC) Vincent Andrew and Haji Mwinyi (Yanga) have all been called up for the first time.

    Neither Nigeria nor Tanzania can qualify for the
    2017 AFCON which makes the game a dead
    rubber as Group G leaders Egypt are already through to the tournament. Nigeria are second in the group while Tanzania trail the group with just a point. as a patriotic Nigeria, I will pitch my tent with the Super Eagles to carry the day.

    From my own view of point I know Nigeria supposed to perform very well and I believe that they will qualify because they know what it takes, especially to their career and most of them know that they’re still have world cup qualify ahead that most of the players always wish to present in the competition.
    I believe if they fail to qualify, the new technical coach that we have right will totally remove and forget the players that they are not put their hundred percent to the match especially for the old players that have little to play in both international match and for their nation.
    I’m looking for good competition against Tanzania from my darling super eagle we are going to defeat them in both home and away and I want everybody should forget of the past and fully support them. Nigeria 3 – Tanzania 0.

    We all know that this match is an inconsequential one as it would change nothing regarding the standing of the group for qualification to AFCON 2017. This should not make Nigerians ignore the fact that the super eagles are going out there seeking to make the nation proud.

    This match is going to show Nigerians what to expect of the national team under the leadership of Gernot rohr as we will see his philosophy of football come into play. Also we should see the best of the players as they all would want to impress the new technical crew and stake their claim for regular call up to the squad.

    John Mikel Obi and other contigent of the Olympic dream team xi In the squad should have a good game looking at their stellar performance at the Rio Olympic games. So also should the England based players who have been impressive in their appearances for their various clubs.

    Nigeria vs Tanzania is still going to be very entertaining despite both can not be able tp qualify from the group but it would have been more interesting if a voctory in thos game will guarantee qualification. German Tactician Bernet Rohr will be the 3rd Nigerian coach for just this nations cup qualification campaign which i feel is npt to good for Nigeria football and the players too. The coach will definitely come up with a different game plan and can also make some adjustment in the team list. So i think we might be having a very difficult 1st half because the players will need to adapt to his kind of play. Tanzania played out a goaless draw with Nigeria in the first leg and a draw for them in this game will be a very good result. But with the world cup qualification in the corner, the super Eagles will be using thos game to perfect strategy playing together before the game against Zambia. With the calibre of players invited for this game, i know the super eagles of Nigeria will come out victorious with great performance ftom olympic bronze winner obi mikel, ahmed musa, kelechi iheanacho, victor moses and ighalo.

    This should be a new dawn for the Super Eagles. The rate at which the once dreaded Nigerian national team has gone down in rankings is pathetic. I am very happy with the zeal and passion shown by all invited players despite the fact that the game is a dead rubber. This will be an opportunity for the new Super Eagles tactician to have a feel of what this job entails and hopefully start from there to chart a new course for the growth and development of the game.The Uyo township stadium has not really been a good hunting ground for the Eagles but hopefully this will change. The ushering in of this new era will coincide with a turnaround in fortunes in that venue. It is clearly the best stadium in the country and here is wishing my darling Super Eagles the very best as they chart a new course. I am going for a 3 nil victory in favour of Nigeria.

    The Super Eagles of Nigeria begin a new era this weekend under a brand new coach, Gernot Rohr. Though, many football fans are quite disenchanted with the nation's football administrators and disappointing results from most of the National teams in recent times, quite a number of Nigerian die-hard fans are cautiously optimistic about this new era.Firstly, Rohr's has called up an exciting bunch of players for his first game in charge; a good mix of experience and youth. Kelechi Iheanacho, Moses Simon, Wilfred Ndidi and others represent some of the best youngsters in world football while Mikel Obi, Brown Ideye, Odion Ighalo etc are experienced enough to steady the ship and provide direction for the team on & off the field of play.Also, the new coach has arrived with a retinue of specialized assistants (Match reader, Fitness coach, Video Analyst) to join forces with some of the finest home-based coaches in Salisu Yusuf, Alloy Agu and Imama Amapakabo. Surely the Super Eagles will have an effective bench to out think, out maneuver and out fox all opponents in the months ahead.Finally, all Nigerian fans expect to see a rejuvenated Super Eagles team playing great football, we want to see good build up play, well worked goals and a discernible playing pattern.

This game will give us the insight of what to expect from the eagle in the world cup qualifies. so I expect them to take the game really serious n send Warning signal to there opponents in the qualifies. Am expecting a good game from both team. Am expecting a new vibe in the team, new team spirit and new tactical know how.

The coach will also be using this medium to test the skills,strenght, ability, fitness of his new army. I just believe the coahing crew and the entire team have a good game. God Bless Nigeria

  100. Super Eagles of Nigeria did not qualitify for African Cup of Nations 2017.So they will focus on world cup 2018 qualitification 

  101. Nigeria vs Tanzania match: it is indeed right that the best Nigerian players were invited.this underscores the seriousness of NFF and Rohr in preparing for the future. I want to applaud Nigeria for maintaining team spirit which is the tonic for success in every endeavor by featuring players like Mikel,Onazi,Echiejile,Musa,Ideye,Balogun,and the rest,who are members of the 2013,AFCON winning team. With the right environment and attitude. Eagles under coach Rohr will not only qualify to the world cup but surprise the world there.But the NFF must be warned never to unnecessarily interfere in the job of Rohr. Europeans,especially Germans are highly principled people and would spare nothing to maintain their standards and beliefs…

    though out of the afcon, this match can serve as one for the coaching staffs to use to access the strength and weakness of the team going into the world cup qualifiers.
    I think it is a good thing the coach named a strong squad for this one. winning this will help psychologically in the preparation of the upcoming world cup qualifiers. Oyedeji Gift from Benin City. Edo State.

    Nigeria match against Tanzania, With or without the match, we all know that we are out of AFCON, yet it’s a must win for the Eagles because, If truly there will be chance for Russia 2018 then the Super eagles can’t afford to lose any I repeat any match before the qualifying games and also we have new technical adviser now, so we are all expecting different strategy, different philosophy, team chemistry and team spirit plus dedication and determination, giving us a good (winning) result. Nigerians has lost hope in the team, actually the hope is dead, for example; if the eagles are playing and they concede a goal (1-0), a typical Nigerian fan will turn off the TV but I will have to watch it to the end, why? Not because I’m a patriotic Nigerian but because I’m a sport journalist so I don’t have choice, therefore Rohr and his boys need to gain Nigerians confidence back, in the super eagles by delivering the ticket to Russia. And it’s starts now!  They shouldn’t forget that it will Upbeat our position in the FIFA ranking Nigeria match against Tanzania, With or without the match, we all know that we are out of AFCON, yet it’s a must win for the Eagles because, If truly there will be chance for Russia 2018 then the Super eagles can’t afford to lose any I repeat any match before the qualifying games and also we have new technical adviser now, so we are all expecting different strategy, different philosophy, team chemistry and team spirit plus dedication and determination, giving us a good (winning) result.

    Nigeriavs Tanzania
    Preview: The match between our dear Super eagle and Tanzania might come with less importance and many may see it a game with nothing at stake and this reason maybe justified when one remembers the only ticket in the group had been grabbed by the Pharoas of Egpyt in a way many football lovers in Nigeria will not want to remember again. That is in the past, at least for our personality and credibility sake and to put a smile into the faces of the dissappointed Nigerian fans who no longer have believe in the team, Gernot Rohr must start on a winning note to call and attract us back and to bring back the old and superb super eagles we used to know. Anything short of victory will not be a fair start for the new coach if one remembers the Tanzania National team are ranked 124th in the world and Nigeria ranked 67 in the ranking released on Aug 11 their coach Charles Boniface Mkwasa who has taken over since 2015 has never qualified the to any major football event will want to attract and earn some reputation by defeating at her backyard . Record show us Tanzania has neva defeated Nigeria. Tanzania’s last qualifying match visit to Nigeria was for 1980 nation’s cup which Nigeria beat them 3 goals to 1. We have met 7 times, we won 4 and drew 3. To bring back our memory, the first leg of this encounter under coach Sunday Oliseh in Benjamin Mkapa National Stadiumin Dar-es-Salaam, the Tanzania home ground ended in stalemate. No matter what may have happened to our dear super eagles, I still believe the Tanzanian National Football team is not a match for the super eagle. At this stage, we shouldn’t forget that 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifiers which kicks off in October and the coach should use the game which will hold this saturday to majorly prepare for the World Cup qualifier against Zambia which comes up next month and also to bring back a rhythm and chemistry of play among the players.
    One thing is certain, Gabon 2017 is long gone for the super eagles. Once bitten twice shy they say, Saturday’s game with Taifa stars at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium should be an avenue for the new Super Eagles technical adviser, Gernot Rohr to know his players better so as to know how to put the round peg in the round hole since it is his first real test. On the player’s part, they will also want to show the new coach what each of them can offer. Senior players like Mikel Obi, Ahmed Musa, Victor Moses ighalo, ihenacho and the likes are already in camp and they should take responsibility and use their experience from playing in the major leagues in europe to help the coach and the team in its quest for greatness and according to John Mikel Obi “The players alone are not responsible for our AFCON failure,” Mikel said at the team’s press conference here in Uyo ahead of Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Tanzania.
    “The players are the ones we see on the pitch but there are a lot of preparations that go on behind the scenes. When these are not properly done, it will affect the output on the pitch. I’m not pointing fingers neither am I trading blame but we need to learn from the past so we can excel.” The journey begins on sunday for the players, the appropriate authority to set things right. The ex-bordeaux and gabon manager must bring the super eagles to where it should be. The Tanzania National is dominated by players in their mid 20’s, except for their goalkeeper Mustapha A. Who is 32. That means they come with energy and youthful zeal and they would want to break the record going by the fact that they have never defeated us. Tanzania’s last visit to Nigeria was in 11th sept. 2002 where we defeated them 2 nil. We were drawn in the same group with Zambia, Cameroon and Algeria in the coming world cup qualifiers and we should be in our best form before we face these giant african slayers. The three-time African champions will host the Taifa stars at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium to wrap up the 2017 Afcon qualifiers, the match kicks off @ 5pm Nigeria time.

    No doubt much is not expected from this match due to the fact that the match is just a formality game. It is no doubt a good opportunity for our new Gemarn coach and his crew to show the teaming Nigerian football fanatics his own philosophy and style of play. I personaly feel the fans should not expect the players to put all their heart in this game due to the fact that the game is a mere formality and also leagues around europe just resumed and no player would like to sustain any injury that will keep them in the sideline and no coach would like to see any of their players coming back injured knowing fully well that the transfer window has closed. Winning the match will no doubt boost our FIFA ranking and give the new coach a winning foundation. In concluding, i urge the fans to be patient with the coach and not judge the team base on this match because the Tanzanians will like to go back home with their heads up. Mr Dauzi E. S frm Bayelsa.

  107. would be an. interesting game…rohr has to to begin
    with a win

  108. Super eagles of Nigeria will beat Tanzanian national team 2-0, that is Nigeria 2 Tanzania 0.

  109. The sure star men that will make it happen for Nigeria to beat Tanzania, MIKEL to hold the DMF, troost kong ekpon to make the CB very tight, B IDEYE to support attack in a MF role playing along A-MUSA, IGHALO then ours young golden boys eg IHEALACHO or A-IWOBI I tip either one to score or to assist.

  110. Although Nigeria are out of the AFCON 2017 but I am “very very” they we play for PRIDE!!!!

  111. No matter how powerful the TANZANIA are the SUPER EAGLES we destroyed them even though they carry fire on-top HEAD.

    Nigeriavs Tanzania
    Preview:

    The Super Eagles of Nigeria will host the Taifa Stars of Tanzania in a last qualifying match of Gabon 2017 nation’s cup that has eluded both nations no thanks to Egypt who has claimed the single ticket in the group.
    In the Gabon 2017 context, this match is of no use to the Super Eagles because there is nothing at stake. I believe the new technical adviser Gernot Rohr will want to use the match to access how strong his team is and also to prepare them for the world cup qualifier against Zambia which will hold next month.
    Also, come saturday, the players will want to prove to the coach that they deserve to be in the team by showing what they have got on the pitch. However the Tanzanians will also want to prove a point by defeating Us right at our background.
    When Nigeria went to Dar Salam for the first leg, it ended 0 – 0 in a devastating way for Nigeria. So We should use this match to bring balance and confidence among the players in order to take the super eagles to where they belong. The three-time African champions will host the Taifa stars at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium to wrap up the 2017 Afcon qualifiers, the match kicks off @ 5pm Nigeria time.

    Nigeria vs Tanzania Preview:

    Nigeria’s national team, Super Eagles face Tanzania in this weekend’s 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying match. The Taifa Stars landed in Abuja on Thursday before moving to Uyo ahead Saturday’s Afcon qualifier against the Super Eagles. If we have not forgotten, we drew the first leg of this encounter under coach Sunday Oliseh in Benjamin Mkapa National Stadiumin Dar-es-Salaam.

    I honestly believe this match comes with nothing at stake except for some points to bring out from it. Firstly we have our national honour to protect judging by the fact that Tanzania has never defeated Nigeria in any competition.

    I also believe The Eagles will be using the game against Tanzania to prepare for the World Cup qualifiers starting next month away to Zambia. Coach Gernot Rohr will use the match to identify the key areas of strength and weakness of the team before the world cup qualifiers. The players will also want to prove a point to the coach on why they should be picked by the new coach. The match starts by 5pm Nigeria Time on Saturday. Adediran Titilayo, Ibadan, Oyo State

  116. Reply Post By Oluwatunwase Seun

    My sincere opinion about about the final qualifying match of the Gabon 2017 nation’s cup is that the match is a morale booster and first test for the new technical adviser Gernot Rohr to access the team. Though judging by the history of Tanzania against Nigeria, they have met Nigeria four times in all competition in which Nigeria won four and drew 3. Going by that, I believe history will still repeat itself.

    The Taifa stars under coach Charles Boniface Mkwasa are currently ranked 124th in the world and Nigeria ranked 67 in the ranking released on Aug 11. This should even give the Super eagle extra morale to defeat the Taifa Stars. Though they too will want to give us a run for our money but I strongly think we will prevail even if it is not a wide margin victory.

    The Super Eagle coach should see this match as a perfect opportunity for him and his crew to pinpoint the strength and weaknesses of the team so as for him to know the corrective measures and necessary steps to take to ensure that the super eagles qualifies for the 2018 world cup by being in the perfect shape to defeat the chipolopolo of zambia next month. The match will hold this Saturday by 5pm. Oluwatunwase Seun Michael. Oyo State.

  117. We draw against Tanzania first leg doesn’t mean we will not win tomorrow match because the boys have nothing to fear, I am accurately tipping them to win at least 2-0.

  118. 24hours plus remaining for the hot match of the weak to began, I am advising the super eagles to be cool and calm because the match is going to be a mouth washing for them.
    Although the TANZANIANS will want to prove themselves “but they is nothing the HEN can do to hurt the EAGLES CHILD” deffinately 3 point in the bag.

    The super eagles of Nigeria host Tanzania in a last Nation’s cup qualifying match in which Victory for the Super Eagles will boost their psyche ahead October’s 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifier against Zambia having missed out of the 2017 Afcon billed for Gabon.

    I think anything short of victory may damage the team’s confidence, morale and it won’t do any good to motivate the team ahead of the world cup qualifiers. They’re only playing for pride though. This match will only make them get prepared before the Russia 2018 world cup qualifiers start. Nigeria must also play to win to help them in the next release of FIFA Ranking. The coach should come with good tactics and strategies on how the team will get firing on all cylinder so as to qualify for the world cup

    The Taifa Stars are still searching for their first win over the Super Eagles after five previous clashes. I am looking forward to seeing a game where both team play a free flow attacking football. Nigeria especially should be able to come out on top because of the mass of talents embedded in our team, stars like John Mikel Oba, Ighalo, Ahmed Musa, Brown Ideye, Victor Osimen, Onazi and so on should be too much for the Tanzanians.

    Honestly speaking, it is a shame for Nigeria’s flag not to be hoisted in Gabon come 2017. I believe this was brought about poor preparation and bad technical ability. Former coach sunday oliseh also have part of the blames. That one has passed, the next test is the qualification for the world cup.

    Coach Gernot Rohr should be extremely grateful he has this opportunity to know the flaws of the team and to ascertain the strength and weakness of his team. Also the players will also fancy their chance of being picked for the vital subsequent matches by proving their worth on the pitch come saturday.

    We are looking forward to win the game against Tanzania and it will be a good preparation towards our World Cup qualifiers
    We need to win all games we play to perfect strategy ahead of the World Cup qualifiers. Tanzania Coach Charles Boniface Mkwasa will also want to bring some pride to his Team by beating us. If we relent, they can because we couldn’t even beat them in Dar Salam. I hope the revolution of Super Eagles begins on Saturday. A victory on saturday will attract the fan’s attention back to the team and win back our hearts. The match comes up tomorrow by 5pm Nigeria time. Adekunjo Adepegba Adewale, Oyo State.

    The match between Nigeria and Tanzania represent the new era of the Super Eagles especially under the new coach Rohr however since there is no qualification in the hat it represents an opportunity to get to know his squad.The Tanzanian won’t be push overs especially when on the counter attack and due to being underestimated.

    This match might not really mean any thing to both countries in terms of qualification but it means a lot to the re-birth of new Super Eagle and the way forward for the Nigeria Football Federation. The new Coach of the Nigeria team will begin his job and proof to the doubters that he is the right man for the job and his coming is not as a machinery but for the development and re-awaking of the sleeping giant (Nigeria) in Africa.Another positve of this match is that, some players will want to state a claim to the senior national team jersey by proofing their worth, which will definately make the work of the Coach look easy and put smile back to the face of fans across the Nation. What I am sure of is that Super Eagle will win, even though their opponent will not want to go down easily because it will be a pride for them if they can defeat Nigeria here. my prediction is 2 – 0 in favour of Nigeria. OSHOLONGE AGBOOLA RASHEEDSARI IGANMU, LAGOS

    Though the two teams are out if the afcon competition, its nevertheless a must win for both teams especially Nigeria because this will give all Nigerians the benefit of doubts of a good outing during the Russia 2018 qualifiers being that Nigeria is in a group regarded as the group of death..
    Nigeria has to do what it takes to win this match because its more like a training geared towards adapting to the new style of play of the new coach before the qualification starts proper..the players have to play this game like its a decider for them..I hope they have a good performance and also win with a good margin,guess they are still on a high spirit after a good display at the just concluded Olympics..I wish them success..

  130. I guess Nigeria has a lot to gain and loose if they fail to win this game convincingly. Over here in East Africa where I am based; Youths, Children and Elderly people inquire about what has happened to Nigerian football? you can't imagine how many of those names these groups knew of Nigerian football of the 90s. Yesterday a Taxi driver in Nairobi said to my hearing the AFCON without Nigeria has already robbed itself of the immense quality and artistry of the talent that abound in Africa. We have lost our ratings in both Africa and World football. Leaving local politics that has been the bane of the good game, the employment of this foriegn coach  will go a long way to remove bias and mediocrity in team selection, influences and undue disturbances. There are new boys who will fight throughout the Match: Etebo, Imoh Ezekiel, Alex Iwobi and Iheanacho: Super Eagles team without these ones may be going down the ladder again. In the new era, if we defeat Tanzania tomorrow and convincingly, the aura of Nigeria being a football powerhouse will once again re-ignite and a platform to launch the World cup qualifiers against our arch enemies. If we loose or draw, there will be lots of questions and pessmistism if ever Nigeria will make it to World cup. The talents abound but the management, team selection and Politics keep derailing this one thing that make Nigerians home and in diaspora happy. Bravo, fallen Nigerian football rising again.

In their previous match against Nigeria,they showed character and great will to win thought they were forced to a draw. They’ve not win a single game so I think they’ve something to prove.
    Its a new dawn for the super eagles of Nigeria,this match is like a preparation match for the worldcup qualifiers against Zambia next month. The match will soon hep Rohr to know the players in his team and how they can adapt to his phylosophy.

This will definately be a talking point if God forbid something goes wrong on the road to Russia 2018. That been said, it is time for the german to get to work and justify the huge some he is being paid. what our darling team needs is a sound and efficient football philosophy and style of play. This has been lacking with the eagles playing styles under different coaches with mostly poor outcomes. The more games they play the more these styles if any will be adapted to.

It is still going to be an interesting game and i expect both teams to come out of their blocks to play a good football.Its going to be a very tight game but at the end i know the super eagles will carry the day with as many as 4_0.

    The African Cup of Nations Qualifier match between Nigeria and Tanzania would be played this weekend promises to be a decent encounter. Although both teams have nothing to play for in respect of next months mundial in Gabon, both teams expecially the Super Eagles of Nigeria can use the match as there first preparatory match towards the 2018 Russia world cup qualifiers. Also, the match would be essentially used to test fresh legs in the Super eagles such as the sensational Victor Osimhen who would make his Debut. The match in Uyo would also be the first test of the onions of thenew coach, Mr Rohr. This match would spell a lot about the stuffs to expect from the foriegn tactician.Likewisely, the match would also serve as an avenue to keep building the young Tanzanian Team which is just being nurtured by coach charlse. The recent expenditure of the National Team by the TFF(Tanzanian Football Federation) would continue to bear fruit only if the team get the chance to meet high standard teams like the super eagles.Conclusively, the encounter promises to be entertaining as most players on the Nigerian side seem to be on form, expecially after the Rio olympics outing by the likes of Troost and Mikel. Team coersion is a focal point to build upon by virtue of this match. A score line of 2:0 is favour of Nigeria is most likely to be the result.                                                                                               Oluwadaisi Adeolu, from Ilorin, Kwara state.

    The Afcon qualifier match between Nigeria and Tanzania slated for the third of September,2016 though considered insignificant by many is for me a must win for obvious reasons; firstly, this will afford us have a fell of what to expect from the new super eagles under the German tachtician and a win will go a long way to boost the teams morale.
    Furthermore, this match will also afford thhe coach of the opportunity to test certain players since the match has nothing atstake in terms of qualification for the Afcon. Thirdly, it will give the coach an opportunity to embibe his own philosophy of football into the team.
    Lastly, the team can kick-start with this flatform its preparation for the 2018 world cup since they would not be undet any preasure to win.

    The new coach of the Super Eagles will also want to use this match to prove to the NFF that they have not made a mistake in appointing him. The match will also be an avenue to put the players in the right frame of mind for their first World Cup Qualifier.

FOOTBALL HAS COME A LONG WAY IN AFRICA AND NO TEAM IS A MINION ANY MORE. THE TANZANIANS HAVE COMMENDED US FOR OUR HOSPITALITY BUT THEY SAID THEY ARE HERE TO DEFEAT US. WE SHOULD TAKE THEM SERIOUSLY. OUR BOYS UNDER THE CAPTAINSHIP OF MIKEL OBI, WHO IS STILL ENJOYING HIS HARD EARNED OLYMPIC BRONZE MEDAL, SHOULD FOLLOW UP OUR FEAT IN RIO OLYMPIC WITH A VICTORY TODAY. IT WILL GIVE THE NATION HOPE THAT THERE IS STILL SOME LIGHT AT THE END OF THIS DARK TUNNEL OF NIGERIAN FOOTBALL. THE RESPONSE OF THE BOYS IS ENCOURAGING. ALL THE STARS ARE HERE. MIKEL, MUSA, MOSES, IGHALO, IHEANACHO NAD OTHERS. IT WILL BE A MATCH TO ENJOY INDEED AFTER THE OLYMPIC. NIGERIA 2-0 TANZANIA. DJENIKO CHRIS, SAPELE

    Although the match is a dead rubber,I do believe it has so much importance because the new technical adviser will use it as an avenue to know his players.
    The technical adviser will also be able to figure where this players fit into his technical and tactical plan.
    Finally and most importantly its an avenue to prepare for our upcoming world cup qualifiers.I do believe the lads will do well to take on Tanzania.I predict 3-0 and also iheanacho to score.lol

    Following the failure of our national teams to qualify for the African u23, u17 and AFCON football tournament next year, I expect our new coaching crew to start building up the super eagles for next month world cup qualifiers which consist of football power houses Zambia, Cameroon and Algeria. The match between The Super Eagles and Tanzania should not be taken lightly, although Egypt already won the group.With the crop of invited super eagles players, I believe Tanzania will suffer an inevitable loss. The likes of Odion Ighalo, Iheanacho, Victor Moses and the ever reliable team captain Mikel will be a thorn of flesh in Tanzania's defence line. The SE consist of capable players who can do the damage to Tanzania and get outright victory.Tanzania on the other will want to prove a point at the Uyo stadium by defeating Nigeria on matchday. With just one foreing pro and other local based players, the team are already boasting of wrecking havoc on the star studded super eagles. Their priority and utmost goal is to win the match in order to move up the ladder in FIFA'S ranking.However, for SE to win the match against Tanzania, all hands must be on deck ,no room for mistakes and chances must be converted. Nigeria cannot afford to loose this match as we also look forward to improvement in FIFA's ranking as well.Ayorinde Akinkugbe from Orile Agege.   

  151. NIGERIA  VERSUS TANZANIA GAME TODAYNew man at the helms of affairs in the Super Eagles,Gernot Rohr should stick to his line -up against Akwa United ,however if the Tanzanians become  difficult he should ask Mikel to use his passes to pen them up while Victor Moses can hold on to the ball to rip apart their defensive wall if he forms a chemistry with Imoh Ezekiel  or Musa depending on the formation the team will want to play.However Carl Ikeme should retain his slot as regular goalie when the world cup qualifiers start in earnest and Goalkeeper Daniel Akpeyi wwho was the goalkeeper of the tournament at the Olympics should be given his call up.I saw Coach Samson Siasia’s defense on why he opted for Emmanuel Daniel instead at the Olympics in the recent Complete Football Newspaper publications and I still cannot see the justifications in his actions.

    I believe there will be a 2:0 win for Nigeria against Tanzania,because I believe with Ahmed musa, ighalo and d others we stand a great chance of winning

  154. Few hours to go before the match kick-off at the AKWA -IBOM stadium in UYO, I am expecting the SUPER EAGLES to be fully prepared for the match nothing else but a straight win for them.
    I am personally expecting the BIG BOYS (MIKEL, IGALO, MUSA, ONAZI, IDEYE etc)to be on top level during the game not only to win the match but also to impressed the COACH in order to be given the privileged to play for Nigeria again.
    finally, we all know that our country have being nowhere in the FIFA RANKING and a win today will make us take a step.

  155. Every match has its own significance even though this particular one is a dead rubber to both teams since the final will not make any difference to the both countries. However, to Nigerians (Fans, media and the authority alike) there are several reasons attached to every match involving the National teams most especially the Super Eagles and this won’t be different.
    In ♏γ̲̣̣̥ opinion, this match is very important in all aspects, as it will afford all to view what shape the “new look” super eagles will take as the new era begins. And I think it will also serve as preparation for World Cup Qualifier. So, I think the super eagles will spank their visitors and am tipping Mikel to run the show in the middle of the pack while the likes of Moses and Musa to dazzle from the flanks supplying the pass for Igalo to finish off the Tanzanians.

    This will be a make or mar match for the NFF,Super Eagles and our new coach. The NFF has been nothing but below avearge since Amaju Pinnick took opver, it has been from one problem to another, one court case to another. There has been a lot of distractions from their core assignment which is football administration. As a result, Nigerian football has been dragged to its lowest position. I believe that the NFF can use this match as a platform to rediscover their game and move our football forward.The Super eagles has been on the decline since we won the African cup of nations in 2013. This match which many tagged as dead rubber can be an avenue to reinvent our intent and staging a comeback to our glory days. I urge the players to take it very serious as it determines who will feature in the future of the Super Eagles.In conclusion, the coach has everything to loose and win with this match. The outcome of this match will determine how football crazy nation like our will accept and assist him to taking us back to our winning ways.. God bless Nigeria! JOHN OKORIE, Abuja Nigeria.

    I believe Nigeria will beat them 4-1! But am scared of the selection the coach might put together to execute the mtach. the match is not an important match but we need to win for the pride of it.

    Nigeria VS Tanzania; Though not a seroius encounter as per the main competion at hand,as both teams are out,I still think it is important to both teams because it will have an impact on their ranking.
    Furthermore,it is a very important match for the super eagles of Nigeria as its going to be a test for the new man at the helms of affair now. Boniface Mathew Pinpin frm abuja

    this match is not a due or die game since both team are already out if there afcon2017 finals. The game though will be a match for the Tanzanians to prove a point since they have not won any match against the Nigerian super eagles in any competition before. so the match will be a cracker.
    this will be more like a warm up game for the technical adviser of the super eagles in order to test the quality of player he has at his disposal in preparation for Russia 2018 worldcup qualifications .

    Although the match is just aformalty because no price is atttached to it,but the Eagles still need to play for national pride also it will be an avenue for the super eagles to really get serious for the other world cup matches ahead.With a new technical adviser on board now let us see what he can do better,but i wish him luck and success so that nigeria super eagles can get back to their glorious day,wishing them best of luck.OLANIYAN BANJI,IbadanOYO STATE Nigeria.

    Wow! 176 comments, not surprising though, Nigerians love to win  but who will win this first price? Left for the boss to decide. @francis nzekwe no be only u predict 0-1. And they did not say you have to predict the correct score to win. Just keep hoping and praying. Its gonna be a draw

  171. Reply Post By Mohammed Tauheed Lateef

    Mohammed Tauheed Lateef, from Abuja , FCT. Sincerely speaking, the match is indeed a dead rubber with virtually there is something big at stake and it’s integrity to protect. This is clearly an opportunity for the newly appointed Portuguese coach (Jose Mourinho) to endear himself to the already deflated, pessimistic average Manchester United fans. Moreso, it proves as a good warm up match for the starting of the season. I wish the Red Devils best of luck.
    Finally, i want to predict a scoreline of 2-1 in favour of Manchester United.

  172. Reply Post By Folarin Akinbode

    Akinbode Folarin from Surulere Lagos Nigeria. I will say both teams have been very impressive so far and it should be a fascinating contest although Manchester United are defensively much better and will be delighted with Aguero’s suspension here which is a massive blow for the away side and.Jose Mourinho’s side should be able to edge this one with the new qualities of players added to the squad
    At the other end Pep has managed to outsmart Mourinho more often in the past and will look to do the same this weekend but the red devils are more proactive now playing with a lot more urgency it will be a very tight match and am pretty sure that both managers will want to prove thier worth showing off thier qualities.

    Wow. This is a mouth watering fixture. Both teams have had a 100% start to the season and will both fancing taking all three points.
    With Zlatan up front for United and Considering Aguero will be missing in action, I want to tip Manchester United to nip this one by a slim margin. That said, Iheancho log just be the Joker for City.

    My name is Bernard aleobua and I leave precisely in suleja Niger state..the huge rivalry between the two coaches will surely decide the outcome of this derby.guardiola as a coach knows how to win mourinho and mourinho in turn knows how to win Manchester city and so the outcome is predictable.. Manchester united 3-1 Manchester city..thanks ..
