NFF Moves To Curtail Super Eagles’ Involvement On Social Media During World Cup

NFF Moves To Curtail Super Eagles’ Involvement On Social Media During World Cup

By Nnamdi Ezekute, in Russia:

The Nigeria Football Federation has expressed its concern over the activities of some Super Eagles players in the Social Media during the ongoing 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, and directed the team’s officials at their base camp in Essentuki to address the anomaly for better focus on the hurdles ahead, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

Some players were trolled on the Social Media after Nigeria lost 2-0 to Croatia last Saturday and consequently got enmeshed in nasty rants with the fans. And the NFF chieftains are not amused.

“Personally, I don’t  think that  our players should react to people on Social Media,”  Seyi Akinwunmi, the first Vice-versa) President of the Federation told journalists in Saint Petersburg on Tuesday.

“To the best of my knowledge, the issue has been addressed  by those with the team in Essentuki (team base camp) and  there’s no issue about that anymore.”

  • That’s the chickens problem from day one. Always on social media showing off themselves, instead of playing determined and purposeful football.
    If they fail to beat Iceland in their next match. I strongly recommend that this so called eagles should be disbanded with immediate effect.
    Come to think of it, with all the technical crews we saw on the Internet. I really wonder if they take their time to watch the previous clips of our opponent before we play them on the field.
    #Lazy Players
    #Lazy coaches
    #Lazy technical screws
    #Thumps up NFF

    NB: Eagles this is just a constructive criticism, but I stand to be proven wrong. Complete Sport management please pass my message to the Super Eagles, sorry I meant to type Super Chickens.

  • The super eagles should play as team with emphasis on attack. It should be massive attack, massive defence with 5 man defense line. Mikel should play as defensive midfielder and less forward. Moses should be serious and reduce his falls.

    Someone said it that the Super Eagles talk too much. This also include the coach. Less talk the better.

    It seems Rohr is not disciplined enough to hold his boys ?…must serious national teams at this world cup made sure that their players have no access to Internet or phone and you can see the result ?….it seems our players are tourist , they came to Russia to show case their fashionistic jersey and sight wseeing, no wonder they don’t know how to prevent set pieces even after three weeks in camp!!…what a disaster ,unfortunately this is the best prepared Super Eagles team ever to the world cup !!..I believe they were over pampered ,thinking they have won the world cup !!

    We warned them about twitter and instagram, they refused, they were posting pictures saying things like eyes on the trophy, dancing shaku shaku. Laughing and playing while others were busy training and strategizing ,reality has set in now. We have a coach that spent quality time. E telling the whole world that Croatia are ranked ahead of us and that we are d youngest team. I still don’t understand how we became the youngest team when musa,onazi claimes to be 25,ighalo claimed 28 (lol) the people that are young in that team is Tyrone and iwobi ,the rest are from 25 and above, d likes of troost, iheanacho, ndidi, etc. Unfortunately I don’t know see Nigeria getting a result against Argentina because rohr will definitely dampen their confidence by constantly reminding them that they ranked 48 in d World. Then they start jogging around d field and start chasing ball around for 90 mins. It’s going to be an eyesore to watch as usual.

      That is just the coach major problem, talking, bringing the boys moral down with useless defensive formation, is better to attack & lose than useless defense & still lose

      When you accept defeat before Battle you have already lost the battle. The coach and NFF are already planning for the next world cup when we have not finish this competition.

  • I don’t blame the boys but the NFF, employing Rohr as our coach. We have good coach in Nigeria that are 100% better than Rohr. NFF did this because of the kick back from the Coach. The entire country is so disappointed on the way and manner our boys are playing on the field. It would have be so better if we go there with Home Eagle. Am very disappointing. They forget that money u never work for u will only spend it uselessly. One thing they all forget that some of them can’t be given send chance in life.

  • They are human being now. Do you think they w
    are happy to loose too. They did their best but it wasn’t enough and they can still double up. Even all those spewing out gibberish here like Edoman,Mykel,Slashy ashy,Sunnyb and co if u reply them den dey vex talkless people that are not happy before. Lets be hopeful things will then out fine

    • Hello.
      It is Ashy Slashy, get it right!
      Ashy Slashy at your service, always bringing the bitter truth to the fore.
      Good advice is rarely taken, we live in a sugar-coated world where people just want to hear what they want to hear, just to make them happy.
      Me, I am through with all that crap.
      The same ills Femi Kuti and his father sang about tears ago are still prevalent in our society today. Curruption, bribery, nepotism, favourism, doing the same things the same way but expecting different results.
      Apart from Dr Do-little (Dr Drey), I bring nothing but peace.
      Tayo, let’s face it, put aside the world cup qualifiers, this coach has been rubbish ever since.
      The victory against Argentina and Poland hid a lot of cracks which are now playing out right before our eyes.
      Go to bed at night and pray for Super Eagles and Nigeria and stay hopeful.
      Me? just leave me o!

    Lets just trust the pig and the warri witch, they both predicted the same thing, we all should have known by now that the SE performs better when they are under pressure like this, we always have our mathematical way of qualifying from the group

    OPEN LETTER TO COACH ROHR!
    Please German coach rohr, before its finally too late for nigeria and before the USUAL phrase of ‘MY YOUNG TEAM EXCUSE OR GOING BACK TO DRAWING BOARD OR WE WILL LEARN FROM OUR MISTAKES EXPLANATIONS. pls listen! Nigeria if at all must loss matches which is sometimes normal, we want to loss playing sexy and attacking with spirited effort by the whole TEAM. From time immemorial Nigeria strong point is the attack so we must utilize that options by making sure they score goals. If we must loss, we want to loss 5-3 or 5-4 against Nigeria like siasia teams to all tournaments impromptu. Coach rohr, our defence are usually no nonsense type of selected players like OKECHUKWU AND taribo west. Not your new found soft belle oyibo breed amateurs defenders even idowu included. Coach rohr please mikel obi is well established number 6 defensive midfielder and not the by force number 10 attacking midfielder! Coach Rohr please iwobi is a brought up number 10 midfielder and rarely also perform as a winger! Coach rohr please ighalo goal drought in super Eagles is alarmingly embarrassing and a disastrous goals return and so the world cup proper isn’t a place to have easy better good luck! Coach Rohr please iheanacho goals ratio for nigeria is LEGENDARY dating back from youth teams. Ighalo from youth team goals ratio are a calamitous record! Coach Rohr please Ahmed musa hardly even gets the business done because inconsistency and the thought of two pretty wives at a young age are his irresponsible greatest undoing. Imagine the bad luck wishes from a legitimate abandoned first wife because he decided to be husband to multiple women and expect soaring career to flourish? Common sense! Musa is not dependable! Hmmm coach Rohr please a certain Samuel kalu of Gent could have replaced simon and Nigeria retains that speed and skill but your so called scout went blind. Your scout missed the transition of the nwakalis BROTHERS and Nigeria now lack CREATIVITY. Ok to amaju PINNICH please remember Nigeria failed to qualify for two nations cup and another disastrous consequences world cup? Your job amaju is on the line truth by told. Let nobody say YOUNG team again because we left experience ideye and efe Ambrose at home. Players on form. Even Ejide nko? Good luck to everyone against ICELAND.

      You finished it. I like that musa point as well just a few heads are head here the rest will kill you and call you names if you dear say the truth i remember when i spoke about the jersey madness and supported Bonfre Jo’s claim that our players are cluess and not fantastic the whole complete sport wanted to kill me. Even my comment was deleted by complete sports now they have changed the language when reality come to play… i keep saying it only iwobi will make the 94 eagles set iheanacho has been corrupted by the bad players he’s mixed up with and improper grooming by his agent who converted him into a no9 when we know he scores well as a supporting striker. Football is wisdom not backpass as our SE plays

    Ammaju Pinnick may have taken some risk and survived it, next match against Iceland will determine his gamble on Rohr.
