Kalusha To Super Eagles: Africa Is Still Solidly Behind You

Kalusha To Super Eagles: Africa Is Still Solidly Behind You

By James Agberebi:

Zambia football legend Kalusha Bwalya has assured the Super Eagles that the rest of Africa are behind them despite their 2-0 defeat to Croatia in their opening Group D game at the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Saturday.

Bwalya stated this while replying to a tweet by Super Eagles skipper Mikel Obi who was thanking everyone for their support while promising they will have a go again in their next game.

The Super Eagles were subdued by a Croatian side who were just above average.

Croatia went 1-0 up no thanks to an own goal by Oghenekaro Etebo before Luka Modric sealed all the three points from the penalty spot.

“Keep up the spirit captain. We are behind you and Naija. #AfricaUnited,” Bwalya, who was crowned the 1988 African Player of the Year,” tweeted.

The Super Eagles will hope to bounce back when they face debutantd Iceland who stunned Argentina by forcing them to a 1-1 draw on Saturday.

    Thanks senior man for your unflinching support for the Super Eagles despite their loss & you not being a Nigerian. This is a very good way of teaching Nigerian fans how to support their team, whether good or bad.

    Yes.

  • There should be room for constructive criticism but the way some people are going about it is very disgusting. I also share Okocha’s sentiments in every sense. If Rohr used the formation that had apparently worked for Eagles; if he did not play some players out of place nor remain sentimental about Shehu and Ighalo; things probably would have been different. However, it appears like some are so happy that their prophecy of doom came to pass and they are taking pleasure in ‘I told you so’. That is a very wrong spirit. Thanks Kalusha for not just being a fair weather friend like many Nigerian fans.
