    Super Eagles should be aware of some antics of the Argentina’s team, like simulation, that may result to penalty or red cards. Super Eagles should watch the match between Cameroon and Chile at the 2000 Olympic games in Sydney, to learn a few lessons about patriotism and determination.

    Our coach no get new generation intelligence on the need to be technically deceptive. Simply say that we are praying because mikel obi is in danger of missing out. Because ARGENTINA will be confused to see mikel line up to play. Too late to utter their game plan. Surprises and deception are part of the game. Rohr should learn his trade.
