    It is nice to be kept informed of the Super Eagles’ itenary. We fans continue to wish them safe journeys and injury-free preparations.

    When the Super Eagles/coaching qualified us for the World Cup,they were all national heroes who could do no wrong.

    What a difference 7 months can make!

    Allow me to take this opportunity to compile the top 5 heroes to villains in the eyes of some fans (please note, some of these became involved post-world cup qualification.

    1) Gernot Rohr: to some fans, the German coach has gone from a master tactician to a master of manufacturing lame excuses. He has fallen from the grace of perfection to the grass of sentimental team selection in the eyes of others.

    2) Onazi: If Onazi should announce his retirement from international football today, some fans will go to church and give thanks to the Almighty. They are sick of the sight of him in Nigerian colours.

    3) Joel Obi: how this guy made the world cup squad is beyond some fans. To them, his inclusion defies belief, logic and any form of rationality. Still, I know those who will beg to differ.

    4) Ighalo: that his delicious goal against Cameroon in the World Cup qualifier seems a million years ago. If China wishes to nationalise Ighalo to play for them, some Super Eagles fans will thank China for the noble diplomatic gesture.

    5) Shehu: I tell you, if Shehu should start ahead of Ebuehi on Saturday against Croatia, some fans will throw their television out of the window. Haba! Even Stevie Wonder can see who among the 2 is playing better at the moment.

    Super Eagles – delighting the people, enriching the nation.

    Please calm down guys. The original game plan of the Super Eagles is what we saw during the second half of our game against the English national team last Saturday. Forget about the poor display of some of the starting eleven in that match. Croatian scouts are everywhere the Super Eagles goes, trying to get a clue of our perfect tactics. Gernot Rohr was earlier informed of this by some of his aids and that’s why he’s not revealing anything yet. Those scouts aforementioned were at Wembley on Saturday, they left immediately after half-time. My name is Ayo, remember me and this comment after our match against Croatia next Friday…. God bless Nigeria!
