        useless he goat like you contribute to our football setback may
        you and your keshi end up be a loser

  • Charles 4 years ago

    This team has always been sluggish in their away matches. I will be surprised if they win this match. I just pray they prove me wrong at the end of the day.

  • Wat is hapening to nigeria na….were is sunday mba.no creativity at all.

  • Truth 4 years ago

    Keshi is never a coach! I don’t know why it’s taking Nff longtime to know this. Every country in Africa now beat Nigeria.It’s very shameful!

  • @SAINTPALMER…..IS KESHI YOUR FAMILY. EVEN IF HIS YOUR FAMILY YOU NEED TO SACK HIM.

  • oseremen 4 years ago

    bring back our boys, no more miracle

  • detator 4 years ago

    @ Saint Palme you are such an idiot you and that brainless coach keshi

  • JudgeDredd 4 years ago

    Ha ha ha ha…Nigeria have no team, I would normally be getting worked up, but today i just found myself laughing all through the match, It was very obvious they were never going to beat sudan, as the Sudannese got stronger by the minute and by about the 25th minute it was already game over. What a hopeless team led by a headless buffoon who tries to masquerade as a coach – Go d forbid, i will no longer even show an interest in 9ja football until clueless Keshi, is gone forever and takes that slow dog Mikel and the useless Emenike with him, I mean anyone in their right minds who would play Mikel in a competitive team, let alone as a number 10, needs to be locked away in a mental institution, these people are not only giving Nigeria a bad name, but also breaking the hearts of the rest of the nation – Woe betide anuone who even tries to defend Keshi, Mikel, Emenike and Amokachi, Nigeria is an abomination, and the levels of incompetence and madness holding sway in this country are beyond human comprehension – For many years now, i have been telling anyone with ears that Mikel is a minus to our team, now that malaise has spread to Emenike as well, helped to propagate by the chief culprit, greedy, brainless, cluless Keshi!
    Shame Shame Shame, and shame on all Nigerians who are a part of, or support this crime! I can guarantee you with these fools still hanging around ie Keshi, Mikel, Emenike and Amokachi, Nigeria can NEVER qualify let alone do anything worthwhile at the competition, I would prefer they don’t qualify, so we can get rid of all the rubbish and start again, I dont know a lot about this Pinnick dude but i hope he is not like these hopeless Nigerians on display at the moment, I mean, truth be told, Keshi, Mikel, Amunike and Amokachi, in my view have done more damage to Nigerian fooball and Nigeria in general than even bloody Boko Haram could ever hope of doing – Now we have even less than ZERO respect or credibility in Africa let alone the world.
    A laughing stock! Mtchewww!

  • Trirth2014 4 years ago

    Which way nigeria?

  • SoccerInNigeria 4 years ago

    all the Pro Keshi supporters dont seem to get it.

    @leonard, @Marsh, @Kola,us, @chuks, @Bello Abdul-Rahman, @Saint Palmer

    You guys are too sentimental in your support for Keshi. Yes Keshi won the African Cup and we respect him for that. That AFCON victory is almost 2 years ago. Nigeria has won only 1 out of 12 since November 2013. Our only win against Bosnia was a controversial win. This Loss in Sudan has always been coming. Nothing has changed since our first 2 games of the AFCON qualifiers. Little or no goals, No creativity, very few chances, the opposing goalkeeper is not being troubled. The wrong players being invited. ARE YOU GUYS SO BLIND TO SEE FOR YOURSELVES THAT THE SUPER EAGLES ARE GOING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION?

    I was hoping that Sunday Emmanuel, Ighadaro, or one of the newly invited players will prove the critics wrong and deliver against Sudan. Sunday Emmanuel was pathetic and did little or nothing. Ighadaro was descent though nothing special. This is very embarrassing. If you want to ignore top class experienced players for unknown players, those new players must deliver and they all failed to add any value to the team. It would have been better for Nigeria to bring in Iheanacho and/or Isaac Success, or young creative skillfull Midfielder like Chuks Aneke. Even if Nigeria lost at least the players will gain experience for the future. Also what was Aluko doing on the bench?

    Keshi’s questionable decision has sealed his fate. I have said it repeated since we played Congo. I love Keshi but he MUST GO, and he will go.

    If I was Keshi, I would have left the Super Eagles job voluntarily after the world cup. He would easily have gotten another job in Africa or some other country or club.

  • Sunny 4 years ago

    yes, i love what is happening with our national team, since those fat fools in the Nff are only bothered about there welfare they have reaped what they sow.
    Imagine Nigeria loosing to Sudan African champions, for i will agree with the new NFF president scrap all this bulk of bad players who are not even regulars in their clubs, get young and ambitious boys and organise them with Enyema on goal till he decides not to play for Nigeria.
    Sack kESHI and try Oliseh with Jay Jay if possible

  • Toppal 4 years ago

    It is only those who did not watch the match that will come here to rain curses on those who criticize Keshi. I expect Complete Sport to do better by censoring comments of the people who come here to comment in an uncivilized way thinking that they are in animal kingdom.
    I don’t know if one win in 12 matches is a good score card for Keshi. Or are wins against Venezuela and Bosnia (debutant in the world cup) in almost two years, wins we should sit on and not think of doing better? Keshi is not handling the super eagles well (not with his kick and follow football and continuous use of bench warmers and inexperienced players) and we all don’t need a soothsayer to tell us this.

  • Peter Afam 4 years ago

    Keshi has done his bit and it is time to go! He is a national hero and will never be forgotten for his grand contributions to Nigerian football as player and coach. He has lost the plot however to ego-tripping, rigidity and bad man-management. Thanks Keshi for all you’ve done and it is time to show you are indeed a patriot by saving our collective pride as Nigerians – it’s ‘harakiri’ time!

  • oniwide olanisinmi 4 years ago

    am happy that Keshi at last is…………….

  • Samuel 4 years ago

    I said it before that Keshi is not a good coach for Eagles but people don’t accept, look at how Eagles struggling playing with Sudan which everyone beat home and away, Keshi just won nation cup with collective efforts not that he is a good coach, he win only one match out of 12 games it is a pity every time he said he is still building team since 2012, pls NFF should better call Siasia back because all of us can seen that his boys play good football and win matches under him not until Keshi and co rebelled against him in last match against Guinea by using some players like Osase and others to loose the job because all of us can see what Osase doing by not score goal one on one with goalkeeper of Guinea. They should forget the past and give Siasia a second chance. God bless 9ja….

  • Asemota Henry 4 years ago

    Keshi may not be a bad coach as most Nigerians thought, but just like every adventure must come to an ending, Keshi adventure with the super eagles long ended when the super eagles lost to France at the world cup in Brazil.Keshi began to dig his grave after he won AFCON when he gradually and systematically dismantled the team that won the nations cup. This act of dismantling by keshi cost us the chance of reaching the quater final in Brazil (France was a modest side like eagles) and the climax was the lost to sudan.What l cannot still undrestand is that why NFF revoked Keshi resignation immidiately after the world cup. We are mathmatically out of the 2015 AFCON, whatever decision that will be taken to boost the morals of the players to be focus on the return match against Sudan will be “useless,retard and medicine after death.

  • WOLEX 4 years ago

    Truly , Keshi won us the AFCON trophy , he qualified us for the world cup but what quality did we display? We can loose a match but with a good fight. In terms of technicality the team is highly deficient .Poor bench and and his inability to read match was clearly evident in the competitions played so far even in the chan .Hirirng him again means we are pushijng his luck beyond the limit. A Siasia or an Oliseh should be given a trial.
    Keshi has dome well , let go before he reverses his positives to negatives .
