Watch the famous Soccer Talk exponent, Mumini Alao, doing a post-mortem analysis of the Super Eagles Vs Bafana Bafana matchday-one clash in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
South Africa thumped Nigeria 2-0 in Uyo on Saturday, June 10 2017 to force the three-time African champions down to the third position in the Group E table after matchday-one. Libya lead the group, South in the second spot, while Seychelles bring up the rear.
Alao says that the Eagles defeat in Uyo was just like a 'bad day in the office'. He insists that the coach, Gernot Rohr should be professional enough to accept full responsibility for that bad day, though there are enough reasons for the blame to go round. See this video for details
Are the Super Eagles in the threshold on a third consecutive AFCON miss after that routing by South Africa?
Alao does not believe it's over for the Eagles, but he also posits that the loss to Bafana happened at the 'best time', that he would rather have chosen that matchday-one for the home defeat if South Africa must beat Nigeria in the 2019 AFCON qualifiers. Watch this video and hear the guru's full reasons for this.
