      Where have you been? both the Super Eagles and NFF have consistently shown care and love to Carl,a certain percentage of their earnings was donated to him,Pinnick and the Coaching crew and players have severally shown with him in solidarity visits and her was made the honorary 24th player to the World Cup..
      What else exactly are you expecting them to do?

  • Is this a genuine concern or mind game…? Thanks Bodvarsson anyways.

    Thank you Jon Dadi. We very much appreciate your commiseration for the Super Eagles number one goal keeper, Karl lkeme. We love lceland for holding Argentina.

    But the Super Eagles team is now like a wounded Lion after losing to Croatia and many say they may not cross to the second round. Because of this, the Eagles are more than ever determined to win against Iceland this Friday. It is going to be attack attack attack till the end.

    I think the truth about most Nigerian fans is that they allow their emotions and love for SE to stop them from seeing the truth. SE doesn’t have a winning mentality, they don’t play like people that are hungry for glory, they don’t play like winners. They will lose against ICELAND by two goals. Until we forget all this so called big boys like Mikel, Ighalo, Onazi,Ighalo and senior player mentality SE can’t go far in the mundial. Most of the guys that have single handedly contributed to this team are first timers: Iwobi,Etebo,etc let’s forget about big names and start picking players based on form. This SE don’t even believe in themselves. They know deep down they can’t qualify.

    As for Iceland they have my hearth through out this competition. You know a winning side when you see one (that is if you are a winner) those guys dare to do, about the love they are showing to our Carl Ikeme, is not mind game, they don’t need it to beat us black and blue, cause they are better than us. MY RECOMMENDATION FOR ROHR: I don’t have problems with his defence line. BUT THE MIDFIELD AND ATTACK LINE UP SHOULD BE: MIKEL (DMF), ETEBO/NDIDI (DMF), IWOBI (CMF), MUSA (RMF), MOSES (LMF) they can both switch when they want. IHENACHO (CF) and SIMEONE NWANKWO (SUB)CF

    Mr Ugo, thank you for the sound advice. We are all humble and the Eagles Coach, Rorh, is among the humblest in Russia. It is good for people to be humble.

    However, you made mention of the defeat of the Super Eagles by Serbia, England and Czech in our friendlies and now Croatia. Do you know that only Brazil and one or two other countries dud not loose in their frienlies before the world cup proper. Spain dismantled Argentina 5-1 even with the almighty Lionel Messi on the field; Brazil defeated the defending champions Germany 1-0 right there in Germany. Other countries were also defeated in rows just like the Super Eagles.

    Finally, the Super Eagles of ’94 won only one of their four or five of their friendlies prior to the competition but what the Eagles did in the world cup proper is now history.

    The point is, it was sad loosing to Croatia the way we did due to inexperience and the coach using players out of position. Croatia was not extraordinary in that match; It was just that the Eagles did not play to form.

    Individually, the Eagles players are not bad at all and, infact, they could be “giant killers” if properly used with the right combination and tactise. The squad is good, believe me – this same Super Eagles that many say is down now will rise and excel, and soon become the darling and the pride of Africa due to their style of play – you will see.

    My name is Emma Ehi, mark my words:

    They say, when a child washes his hands clean, he can eat with the elders. Iceland held Argentina, but against Nigeria, they are going to buckle and sink from the Eagles improved attack – The Eagles have learnt their lessons. I want to say here, once again that :

    “””””NIGERIA will defeat Iceland and Nigeria will not fall to Argentina. NIGERIA will qualify for the second round and improve with every game.

    Please if anyone knows any of Ikeme’s contact channels, then He should be told about All form of Cancer Healing Solution which CAN BE MADE BY HE HIMSELF USING ELECTRIFIED SILVER RODS.

    The electricity there is just a battery. the silver rod must be pure Silver Rod. Once the Silver Rods are electrified, they start to break into tiny particles that when a cancer patients drink the particle, they go straight into the blood cells and instantly destroy any CANCER CELLS and even other foreign matters.

    The man who prepared the Manual on this is Called Patrick .J. Kelly

    Please everyone should download the Manual on his website. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY SHARE THIS INFO ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES.

    May you all never become CANCER PATIENT OOO.
    AMEN.
