Maigari Remains Optimistic

–Wants total support for Eagles

President of Nigeria Football Federation, Alhaji Aminu Maigari has expressed optimism that the Super Eagles will go ahead and qualify for the knock –out stages of the 2014 FIFA World Cup, despite Monday’s scoreless draw with Iran in Curitiba.

The African champions huffed and puffed throughout but failed to get the needed goal to claim three points, despite dominating for large periods.

“I remain optimistic and confident that the Eagles will still qualify. Certainly, the Government and people of Nigeria were expecting victory in this game, but that is football for you.

“I have spoken with the Head Coach and he knows as well that victory against Bosnia-Herzegovina is non –negotiable. The team will do what is necessary to earn the three points and then face with Argentina with courage,” Maigari said on board the TAM Air flight that brought the NFF delegation back to Sao Paulo after the match.

“I want our people to remain strong behind the team and continue to support the players and technical crew with their prayers. The tournament is just starting, and the team has also seen this match as a wake –up call.”

    Mr Maigari, the real wake up call was our loss to the U.S.A in Jacksonville, Fl and not this. The team needed a playmaker which all soccer loving fans had been shouting years ago.
    I think Keshi should switch to 4-4-2 in his next game. The midfield must be compact bcos the Bosnians that I watched against Argentina will give us a good run for our money. That game is a must win

    Ejike Uzoenyi and Odemwingie must start that match with Mikel/Onazi in the middle.Ameobi and /emenike in front.

    In d 2nd half if there are no injury worries, Nwofor,Moses and Musa may come in.

    my personal opinion!
