    Thank God. The Eagles are back. All hail Ahmed Musa, the flying jet!

    Congratulations to the team. Well done for the victory.

    But Keshi must still go. Nigeria needs a fresh start. A New NFF management is in place. The Negativity Keshi has created around the team with his antics is way too much for him to continue. Keshi has lost the support of Most Nigerians. He must go.

    Up Nigeria UP Super Eagles. We are happy, however Nigeria does not need Keshi. Keshi Must step aside for the benefit of the Super Eagles.

  • No doubt, Keshi needs to go….

    Ahhhhhhhh , to God be the glory. however, thanks to Musa and the rest of the team. Therefore, this team can’t qualify us to Afcon 2015. I appreciate Keshi’s efforts, Chineke will bless him for me. Now, its time for a change if to say Nigeria really want to be in Morocco 2015. The best thing NFF can do for Nigerians now is to let go of Keshi because his team can’t beat Congo and South Africa but if they insist that Keshi must stay, we should all remember that God is not a Nigerian and we can’t keep praying for incompetent coach. However, NFF must get a sound coach for Eagles in this month if they know what their doing. Hmm, the truth is bitter, a word is enough for the wise. God bless Nigeria!
