    Midfield midfield midfield 

  • onwajunior 1 month ago

    Have u noticed that all Colin’s throws are to the opponent. Iheanacho gradually playing himself out of the team.

  • Does anyone have the link for the match?

  • Purified 1 month ago

    I am disappointed already oooooooooooooooooooooooo What is Kelechi doing on the Field mr Rorh? I feel Issac success should take his place or better still the new guy in eagles. If the game continues like this, South Africa may win.

  • Purified 1 month ago

    Our defense is so weak. please who are we missing?

  • Sunnyb 1 month ago

    Iheanacho iheanacho iheanacho, why would this coach start this  boy, I ve said many times that boy is not ready for prime time. He just don’t have it. We need to boss  the midfield before is too late ooo, we must not lose this game oooo.i hope our boys plays better in the second half, first is not that  bad.

  • Omo9ja 1 month ago

    I’m seeing Nigeria winning this match if coach using the right substitutions.

    Iheanacho must out for Osemeh, Moses for Kalu and Etobo is not in this game too. Come on guys, let’s get the job done today now. This match is won already if mr. Rohr getting his tactics right. God is in control. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • Dissapointed in these guys, opportunity to cement a place on the team but they have failed big time. Just look at libya hammering Seychelles at home 6 – 0 and we are here struggling against a team that has no clue.

  • Iheanacho shouldnt be starting for super eagles when we have playes roaring to go on the bench. Also balogun is not match fit

  • Chima E Samuels 1 month ago

    Guys iheanacho is not a bad player all the coach needs is the right tactics and position this guys better!

    • Ashy Slashy 1 month ago

      After all, Dr Drey will say you don’t like Iheanacho. Eberibe Drey.

  • Why is Rohr so conservative and unwilling to make substitutions despite our hot bench warmers?

  • Ademola 1 month ago

    WITH WHAT AM SEEING NOW I THINK RHOR SHOULD STOP THIS IDEA OF OYINBO WALL,WE NEED A REALLY BLACK FIGHTER,FINE OYINBO WALL MIGHT TRY TO CONTAIN EUROPEANS FOOTBALLER BUT AFRICAN FOOTBALL RESTS ON PHYSICALITY SPEED AND RUGGEDNESS . THEN I THINK IHEANACHO IS NOT COMPOSED YET FOR EAGLES.

  • Ara Nkita 1 month ago

    We obviously have no midfield

  • Ara Nkita 1 month ago

    Two goals taken away from us.
    These officials are horrible and terrible

  • Sunnyb 1 month ago

    I warned about using iheanacho, I specifically mentioned the midfield as our weakest link, I guess Rohr wasn’t paying attention. way forward ?

  • 1-1 is not a bad result considering all the first team players we missing, up eagles.

  • Congratulations for qualifying for Cameroon 2019.You could have done better, but those Gambian officials should be disciplined by CAF.

  • Ademola 1 month ago

    HONESTLY SPEAKING I DONT THINK ROHR HAS ANYTHING BETTER TO OFFER EAGLES AGAIN AND I THINK WE NEED A COACH WITH A MENTALITY OF TAKING EAGLES TO THE NEXT LEVEL,I MEAN BEYOND AFRICAN GAME,THIS COACH AM SEEING IS COMFORTABLE WITH EAGLES PRESENT FORM .WHY ON EARTH WILL ROHR KEEP SAYING HIS YOUNG TEAM ,PLEASE IS NETHERLAND TEAM NOT YOUNG AND LOOK AT WHAT THEY ARE DOING AT THE MOMENT .
    ITS HIGH TIME WE TOLD ROHR TO TELL THE PLAYERS WEARING NATIONAL JERSY THAT NO MATTER THEIR AGES ,THEY ARE NOT YOUNG THEY ARE MEN, .THE SOUTH AFRICANS REALLY PLAYED US TODAY AND MADE OUR PROS LOOK ORDINARY.
    PICKNICK SHOULD PLEASEDO SOMETHING AND GET US A WORLD CLASS COACH WITH A WINNING MENTALITY

    • Ashy Slashy 1 month ago

      Ademola, no let die hard Rohr supporters stone you to death o.

    • Edo King 1 month ago

      thank you sir.

      Rohr is too conservative. I think we should get seedorf and kluivert from cameroon.
      I think he would have played a full back today and gone with Ekong and Omeruo based on top form, also, he would have gone with Ola Aina at RB so Kalu can attack fully.

      I am still mad from the loss we suffered against argentina at the world cup all because of this conservative approach.

      Fire Rohr

      • Seedorf and kluivert. ..u r really pathetic ..take a look at Cameron’s results..please we shouldn’t come here and be calling names without taking good care to analyze those names

    • Jones 1 month ago

      Fool. When last did a Nigerian coach qualify us for major tournaments with games to spare ?

  • Ayphillydegreat 1 month ago

    What better can the coach offer? SuperEagles are going to the AFCON for the first time in 6 years with a game to spare. We played in a very high altitude yet we got the desired result. All we need is a draw and we got it. What else does he have to do? Who is a world class coach. Abeg go and bring your Guardiola, Mourinho, Conte, Zidane and co. You can see how Seedoff is struggling with Cameroon. People just come here to voice their own frustration unnecessarily. Still we didn’t lose on a hostile environment. What matters is the AFCON ticket and it’s in the bag.

  • Isaac Success should have been brought in at the start of 2nd half in place of Iheanacho. The refree wouldn’t have been be able to offside all the number of goals that super eagle would have scored.
    This our coach know nothing about reading game. Even my 70 years old mum that never go to school knew what to do.

    • Jones 1 month ago

      If you are very good at reading games then what the hell are you doing embarrassing yourself on csn. Rohr is Nigeria’s best coach ever. The stats shows it.

  • The officiating of this match was a disgrace. Sincerely that Gambian referee should be sanctioned by CAF. Hear it from the KickOff site: “Bafana were handed another let off as Musa beat the offside trap to tuck past Khune, but the officials incorrectly disallowed it for offside on 83 minutes.”

    What can I say more? Disgrace, disgrace, disgrace. The SE should have won.

  • Stop blaming the coach for everything.You think a world class coach can do better than what they did today? The performance today was not bad at all just some fine tuning and the team will be OK. The south African did not have any cut chances unlike Nigeria who has 2 good goals controversially disallowed.

  • Ezenwa tried.

  • Ademola 1 month ago

    Ayphillydegreat I don’t think there is any wrong in me voicing out my frustration. That’s the reason we are in this forum. And you can’t expect all of us to think the same way brother. We need a coach with a mentality of winning  not someone saying since two years ago that his team is small in age,when are they going to grow of age. Please brother try to reason along with me . From now begin to notice Rohr comments if we want to play small teams he would not say anything about the players age for example our game against Seychelles he said nothing about his young team now against South African he has been shouting over two weeks ago that his team his young, let call a spade a spade he is confused at times as a coach . 

  • and that man Baba Gasama used to be one the best coach in Africa. He had a bad day in office today.

  • I’m not blaming the coach. He did well this time with his timely substitutions. But NFF. Why did the plane wander off to Luanda before heading for JHB? Rohr wanted the team two days in JHB for acclimatization. Why did the NFF thwart that intention? Rohr is right in physiological principles, though he is not a health professionals, but the dumb NFF officials disregarded him. These violations of professional opinions count. There are set periods for proper acclimatization. One can’t bypass such.

  • Who then are we to blame, if a can’t read a game. This team was poor today. There were people calling for Ogu to start playing, he was no where to be found on the field. Balogun is becoming rusty by the day, guess he was better off playing in germany where he was getting game time. What can we say about Ihenancho, back in the days everyone was calling for him to be in the senior eagles, common under 20 he didn’t perform, now we see what he is turning into. Our defense is now a suspect. There was no midfield in the game. Rohr has a lot of work to do

    • Ashy Slashy 1 month ago

      Totally agree with your points. But I am unsure of what die-hard Rohr supporters will say .

  • @achi, please where did u read that the plane went to Luanda. Even if it did, it could be for logistics reason. Back in the days, the players fly direct to there opponents country and train from there, lately have seen that we dont do that any longer

  • Well….they all played safe in d second half…I saw a team that got what they needed..even scored two uncounted goals away from home, South Africa for that matter. Nigerians,  we need to to be staying calm o! In Rohr I trust. We did not play well..yet we got 5 shots, 2 on target..they that some people claim they play us hands down got 2 shots, 1 on target. Nawa o!

  • Omo9ja 1 month ago

    If Nigerians are truly fans of this game called football, this match already identifies the strength of the coach of Nigeria.

    If Nigerians were really watched the match against South Africa today and says we have a coach, the next thing is to hand in our Afcon ticket to seychelles to carry on.

    If Nigerians watched today’s match, how could Mr. Rohr removed Musa for Onyekuru while Musa was the beat player on the pitch? Wrong sub. What was he waiting for to sub while his team have no where to be found?

    If we all watch the match, Super Eagles have no style of play at all. Kick and follow style. Even, how far can we go in Afcon in Cameroon?

    For me, I used to be coach Rohr no1 during the world cup qualifiers but in Russia, I turned my back because this coach failed and since then, I knew it he has nothing to offer Nigeria.

    We qualified but doesn’t seems like we did. Not that because we did not beat S/A but the reaction of the players and the style, tactics most be questionable.

    A good coach could have sub Kalu in for Moses in that game. Any coach in Nigeria league would have done better than this.

    Wrong plan made by the NFF as usual. They never learned and they will continue to do so until Nigerians voting them out of the office. They know nothing about football. Until our ex players allowed to be in the office. How could they making a wrong arrangement for such a trip? Well, they don’t care though.

    However, the Referee is a hater to Nigeria. I was so scared when I saw his name that he would be the ref for the match. He never likes Super Eagles. He canceled two goals in a single game. No wonder it’s so hard for African Referees at world stage. He must be punished for his bad actions. Even, South Africa scored an offside goal and we all saw it and the Ref snubbed it. No excuses but too bad for African Ref for putting their brutal selfishness over the rules and regulations of the game.

    Lastly, nobody hates nobody. Sorry, we don’t have a coach yet and this team called Super Eagles under Gernot Rohr would be exposed inside out in Cameroon 2019. The truth is bitter but I can’t ignored it.

    You can call me names no wahala but the truth already being said and mine is nothing since they are kicking against CSN on this forum. Who am I then.
    But one thing is clear, if a tenant is kicking against his landlord, sooner or later, red card is coming from the owner of the house lol. Congratulations Nigerians but sorry, I’m not satisfied. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Jones 1 month ago

      Why so daft ? Guy you are a clown go to bed. Rohr is Nigeria’s best coach in recent times. Congratulate the team for qualifying early then go to bed.

    • Jones 1 month ago

      From your English could tell how daft you are.

  • Libya beat Seychelles 8-1. Away. We should beat Seychelles 8-0 in any where in Nigeria. We have already qualified. I foresee South Africa not qualifying as Libya may beat them anywhere in Africa. Table as as this:
    NIGERIA 10 points
    S AFRICA 9 points
    LIBYA REP 7points
    SEYCHELLES 1 point
    Nigeria will beat Seychelles getting 13 points.
    Libya will beat South Africa to qualify along Nigeria.
    As far as I am concerned, Nigeria didn’t achieve its aim. Head to head, South Africa is still leading. Until we beat them at their backyard Rohr will be sleepless.

  • @ omo9ja pls be fair at once. some of you were actually clamouring for the coach to play Ogu and Omeruo yet u still complained and now u re talking about mosses Simon again. When will you be satisfy? I don’t think you can ever be. We all know the number of coaches Nigeria had before this one and what our results was, so what is the need for changing him now? please be reasonable and fair in your assessment of this man for God sake

    • Jones 1 month ago

      Bro don’t mind those clowns. They’ve let their hatred for Rohr cloud their judgments. The team has qualified for afcon after two failed attempts. And you say Rohr is not a good coach. Bunch of clowns

  • FASASI Kunle 1 month ago

    Is better if one does not has anything to write he should be quiet  so that people would not know how ignorance he is about football.

    • Dr. Drey 1 month ago

      Hahahahaha….. You are very on point bro. I’ve told them several times but they won’t listen… Rather they tagged me a bully…!
      Can you see the sewage spilling from their mouths at a time when we will be going to accomplish after 5 years as one of the favorites…! Not even a word of congratulations for missio accompli.
      That how you know those who really love this country and those who only pretend and in one corner are waiting for failure.
      Failures are never happy when others succed…. But when others fail… You see them rolling out the drums and dancing.
      They known themselves and CSN forumites know them as well…. Lolz

  • Rohr has done a very good job with the Super EagLes and he shouLd be duLy given his well deserved accoLades. Looking at how he has been abLe to manage and make this team his own, when he was appointed coach the Super EagLes were in disarray no thanks to one ex-international but Looking at the results of our previous games I can confidentLy say he has done well. HOWEVER he isn’t the best coach as yetm don’t forget Westerhof and keshi will mosdef beat him hands down in ratings. But that’s not what I am after. I am a great fan of the Super Eagles and of Rohr but I will say this, no one is perfect and Rohr is no exception, I was disappointed in Russia in the Match against Argentina, Rohr showed a very soft flaw in the area of making tactical substitution and winning games from the bench that notwithstanding I believe he has [shouLd have] learnt from the world cup experience and look to improving himself too, its not just about the players. Then Yes we have a very young team, this is the first time in a long while that we are having so much players with exceptional talents turning up to play for Nigeria its too much I wonder how Rohr hopes to cope in selecting his players for AFCON I feel for him. The truth is still a work in progress and so far they are not doing bad at all. Just a few tweaks here and there and we are looking at a very soLid team for the future. The job has been done, Misson accompLished, on to the next one. . .
