    Surprisingly South Africa top soccer journalist, Mark Gleeson, and former Bafana Bafana coach, Igesund said yesterday, they cannot see the Super Eagles doing well in Russia because of “inconsistency”!!! How can a team that never lost a game in the qualifiers be labeled as inconsistent?

    We will rubbish them in SA for the second leg, if he thinks they can play football. He should know the first leg wasn’t a complete Team.

      It was the goalkeeper that plays in s. A. The South African knew his weakness and so capitalized on it to win the game. The keeper keeps getting) called up by tour. He almost cost us in the argentina game. Thank God he was changed

  • How I wish you be among them in Russia.

    The program aired on Super Sports on the review of natch day 5 of the World Cup exposed the panelist bias and envy of our national team, the Super Eagles. Imagine Gordon Ingesund even said ‘South Africa would have done well if only they would qualify’. Imagine!!.

  • that is the reason their so call bafana bafana will never reach aforemention place in any given competition,instead of them to concentrate on the match fifa order them to replay with senegal because of the favour the referee did to them, they started displaying their envy to the whole world against a country in which they will never ever match her feat when it come’s to football.

    I don’t care about the enviers people. We should just try our best in term of preparation and leave the rest for God. If it has been ordained by God that Nigeria would be the first Africa country to reach semifinal in Russia no envier can change it. Up Nigeria!!!!! Up super eagles!!!!!!! Up Africa!!!!!!!!!

  • I believe, they can shock the world by loosing all their matches on group stage. And not score one goal

  • charles emeka okwu 4 years ago

    I forsee super eagles causing an upset in russia 2018. I trust rohr to pick the best available talents in his disposal unbiased. I also will urge him to approach the the likes of felix udokhai(wolfsburg),joshua onomah(spurs, who should be an understudy to mikel)) and joshua torunarigha(hertha berlin) to add depth to the team. Rumour has it that tammy abraham is having a change of heart to play for us while amkar perm’s
    russian nigerian defender brian idowu is penciled down to debut against algeria. Idowu is a versatile defender who can be deployed as a leftback,rightback,centre back and as a defensive midfielder.

  • Forget South Africa. They are mind game playing as we are in the same AFCON qualifying group. They will not know what will hit them later. Senegal will flog them even without Mane. They are happy he is injured. They will be forced to watch Nigeria perform anyway we wsnt to at the world cup. Will they off their tv that time? No na. They must watch o. The world cup will not be easy for any team. So all hands should be on deck. Any good player with Nigerian blood should be invited so as to see off the Russian project to a successful conclusion.

    Mehn forget these south africans and thier igesund who couldnt even deliver anything tangible to them when he was given the chance. Right from day 1 when we was winning our matches other teams in our group were busy playing draws as if they deal on okro/ogbono. Now that we have qualified with a game to spare the big headed coach is here speaking about inconsistensy, a term which perfectly defines his national team (Bafana bafana). How do u expect africans to perform well on the global stage with such type of envy?? He thinks we re RSA that buys referee inorder to win matches??
    Big headed monster!!
