Weah Criticises Eagles, Queries Performance Against Sudan

Weah Criticises Eagles, Queries Performance Against Sudan

Former FIFA World Player of the Year and Liberia legend, George Weah, has joined the bandwagon of those criticizing the performance of the Super Eagles in the African Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Sudan last weekend.

Conducting an analysis on the game for ABN Sports channel, the retired AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain star aired his concerns, stressing that Nigeria allowed the North African opponents to dominate the match.

The retired Liberia skipper also pointed out that Sudan, who had been written off before the tie, caused a sensation by defeating the defending champions.

In his own words, George Weah said that Sudan controlled the game from start to finish, and Nigeria did not do anything meaningful during the contest at the Khartoum Municipal Stadium.

Ignoring added time, the Super Eagles had 48 minutes to get an equalizer and score the match winner, but the home team held on for one of their most famous victories in recent times.

George Weah believes the Falcons of Sudan have a chance of qualifying for their ninth African Cup of Nations on the back of the favourable result against the defending champions.

That said, Nigeria will be aiming to bounce back with a win against Sudan in the reverse fixture on Wednesday.

    Thanks Mr. George Weah the Eagles were so poor performance and it was due to Keshi that don’t listen to the voice of Nigerians by not calling our good players for the game instead went and called players from China and some Yeye country to play for us, Keshi like to invited a players that he can sell to big clubs in Europe NFF should sack him and call Siasia back because his boys play good game and win matches during his time. God bless 9ja !!!

    George Weah is only saying the obvious. Nigeria only created 1 or 2 clear goal scoring opportunities. Nigeria played like a team that had nothing at stake. It seemed as though the Eagles thought a 1-0 loss was the required result for qualification.

    @leonard, @Marsh, @Kola,us, @chuks, @Bello Abdul-Rahman, @Cambiaso, @Saint Palmer, @oga what do you guys think?

    Is George Weah also part of the Gang up and sabotage team who want to Keshi to succeed? Is George Weah also a brainless ex-footballer(Like Victor Ikpeba) that talks before using his heads? Is George Weah also one of those who want to cause disunity in the Super Eagles by criticizing the team?

    I am actually disappointed that more Nigerian coaches and Ex-footballers did not come out much earlier to critisize the Super Eagles tactics and decision making before and during games.

    Below are video clips of Gary Lineker boldly critisizing England’s tactics and player selections during the world cup. Critisizing a player or a coach does not mean you hate the coach or want to see the coach fail.

      FYI Ikpeba was right to criticize the team. I am actually disappointed that more Nigerian coaches and Ex-footballers did not come out much earlier to critisize the Super Eagles tactics and decision making before and during games.

  • Granted Keshi was at the helm when we won the AFCON, I can tell you that Keshi benefited from the Team built by Samson Siasia. The result of the efforts put in in building that team by Siasia was Keshi reaping from where he did not sow by winning the AFCON. So overtime, when it was time for Keshi to build his own team with his own input and footprint, he started building the team with players that are not necessarily good players but with players he could make money from. The effect of that selfishness began to manifest with the CONFED Cup and the climax was the Brazil World Cup. How can we explain winning just one game in the last 13 matches. Are we progressing or is it not clear that Keshi has put our soccer into reverse gear? The result of what we are getting today boils down to Keshi’s laziness, Arrogance and selfishnes. Apart from the fact that Keshi is not a good coach, he is technically bereft and he is not a good manager. He devides the camp and just the way he did in his playing days to promote his selfish agenda. He has taken us for a ride for too long. He needs to go.

  • We can see clearly now why Keshi was fired in Togo on the eve of the World Cup. He was accused by Adebayo that he wanted to be his manager at all cost. Same with Mali and now Nigeria. Keshi in the business of selling players.

    Look who’s talking about Nigerian football….George Weah should be worried about helping his mother who wanders around picking empty cans to turn in at convenient stores for money in a city just about two hours away from mine in the U.S. before he runs his stupid mouth. No matter what may happen I’ll never let my mother go through such. excuse me with your bs.
