    The present Super Eagles are young team who have done wonderfully well in the world cup because at that level is it not easy, all teams are potential winners and team have to give way till the last two for the final. The last two cannot assurance competence at group stage on till when they get to that final level.
    I want to say that all the players’ standout but Oghenekaro Etebo is fantastic all through.
    You are welcome back home, it is a global competition and we have nation cup qualifiers still going on; just do that right.
    You are welcome once again and God bless.

  • Welcome boy’s you have all done well in respective of the fact that you couldn’t get to the round of 16 which is a minus on our record painfully so with a white Messiah Coach by Amaju Pinick . My observation is this , we have a very Good team that can beat any team but lacks a potent Coach to bring out the best in them & am afraid it seems Amaju pinnick is hellbent on retaining him despite his tactical ineptitude to the point that he has flimsy excuses for every tactical errors that dumped us out of this world cup.My question to NFF is does retaining Garnot Rohr a guarantee to winning the world cup that no country has ever won with a foreign Coach till date? Garnot Rohr is a misfit for our type of football and motivation for our player’s. Our local Coaches in the mould of Daniel Amokachi,Emmanuel Amuneke,Samson sisia & Sunday Oliseh with the same motivation given to Garnot Rohr will position Super Eagle for Glory at the mundial in 2022. Thanks
