    While everybody was busy celebrating our 2nd goal, IGHALO was seen in the video whispering something to Rohr. I hope there is no some back door arrangements between the 2? Ighalo should watch the next game from the bench. There are other Forwards in the team who are much more better than him. I saw Simy Nwankwo, Iwobi, Ezenwa etc all jubilating but Ighalo was on the side of Rohr whispering some words to his ears. We need to know what is happening between the two.

      The coach had told him during training before the game that he will come into the game from the bench. So, I guess he was goal hungry when he saw that Musa had opened the floor, and he was afraid too that he might lose his position throughout this tournament. Though he’s a good striker, but I think he is rather selfish in build up, and wasteful as well. He wasted two chances last nite, I dont think he will make the starting line up again in the 3-5-2 formation.

    Nigeria supper eagles should be extra careful on Argentina who would want shine with defeating Nigeria, this is do or die battle and supper eagles shouldn’t play defence game for a draw which Argentina star Messi will like to capitalise to score us goals,supper eagles should play their normal game like they did on Iceland, fast attacking to disorganise Argentina defence. Let us go for winning spirit instead of looking for draw game. Good luck supper eagles.

  • See every of my colleague in the office beaming with smiles this morning and talking about iceland and nigeria match forgetting the 2 months salary that has not be paid.

    Football is the only thing in this lazy and always late comer change that makes nigeria happy.

    Buhari should just dedicate the National budget to develop football. and stop this hunger change.
