Etebo: Super Eagles Will Fly High In Russia

Etebo: Super Eagles Will Fly High In Russia

By James Agberebi:

Nigeria midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo has tipped the Super Eagles to put an impressive showing at this year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The Super Eagles will begin their campaign in Russia against Croatia in Group D on Saturday.

They will also take on Argentina and Iceland (who will also play on Saturday) in the group.

“Let it begin Russia 2018.. We gonna fly higher,” Etebo wrote on Twitter on Friday.

Etebo recently sealed a deal to English Championship club Stoke City from Portuguese top flight side Feirense.

  • Nigeria SE should be tuned in and focused for the entire duration of their games starting from when the referee blows his 1st whistle until his final whistle is blown. Lots of goals have been scored late in matches (iran vs morroco, uruguay vs egyst and even the last goal in russia vs saudi) were all scored late so complete focus and concentration for entire duration of the games is crucial.

    Some people complained that we lost a few irrelevant friendly matches, countries like mMorocco who won all their friendlies just lost to lowly Iran bcos they didn’t correct the flaws in the team which would have been caught had they lost a match. They’ve scored all their goals in friendly matches and are now firing blanks.

    Some also complained about our goalie Uzoho blaming him for conceding a so called cheap goal against England attributing it to lack of experience. De Gea with his vast experience as a goalie for Manchester United with champions league experience just conceded a similar goal against Ronaldo inspired Portugal. He also conceded a so called cheap goal in a friendly against Switzerland if am not mistaken. Will anyone call De Gea green? I doubt it.

    In essence what am saying is for people to chill and encourage our team regardless of who has been selected. I still believe like the players that we can win the world cup as farfetched as it sounds. Why go to a tournament if you don’t think you can win it. Greece, Portugal, zambia, 9ja all did it at the nation’s cup and euros.

    God bless 9ja and its people representing her in one capacity or another.

    Etebo according to Timaya, I concur.

      God bless you my brother. I made similar comment about De Gea’s cheeky goals against Switzerland and Portugal. We have no choice than to support this team wholeheartedly. A friend in need is a friend indeed.

    Talk less, work hard and focus. Then, God will help. I don’t believe in so much bla bla bla but put those words into work period. I don’t want to hear any excuses from Super Eagles in tomorrow’s game.

    Coach Rohr should get his tactics right, our players must be very calm against Croatia. Morocco had a lot of chanches vs Iran but they were in a rush and they paid dearly for that.

    Therefore, two African team already been beaten and can Africans rely on Nigeria and Senegal? Fingers crossed. God bless Nigeria!!!
