    I think that Ahmed Musa goal is the best in the tournament. All the other goals were straight goals scored from distance or free kicks. No extra thing needed. But Musa’s goal was something else. The midair trapping of the balk in a cool manner and striking it to the top of the roof of the net was classical. No goal like it. The second was Pogba vs Croatia goal. The calmness at which he directed the ball with his left leg tells me much about this Guy’s talent.

  • musa goal is the best

    Every time I log on this site, it is in the hope of finding out two things:

    i) That the trouble maker Giwa has been sent packing from the NFF seat he took by force and has been given a LIFE BAN by FIFA

    ii) Rohr has been sacked and replaced with a more ambitious and technically efficient coach.

    Until then, I will keep reading your comments (both the ones I agree with and the ones I strongly disagree with).
