Yobo Drums Support For Eagles

Yobo Drums Support For Eagles

Despite Nigeria’s loss to Sudan in an AFCON qualifier on Saturday, former Super Eagles captain, Joseph Yobo believes it is not the end of the road for the national team. In his opinion, the team still has what it takes to hoist Nigeria’s flag in Morocco.

“Sometimes things don’t turn out the way you planned. I have seen many of such moments in my football career. At such times, I have learnt never to give up. This team is passing through a phase and I know they have what it takes to weather through the storms,”Yobo was quoted as saying by one of his close associates.

The most capped ex-international however opines that the onus is on the players to negotiate their way out of the current situation.

“I have no doubt in the quality of players I left behind in the national team. They have to talk to themselves and find a solution. At times like this, the players’ motivation is key. You know in 2012, we failed to qualify for AFCON, but in 2013, we made up our mind to win the trophy against all odds. Now that the odds are against the team, the players should resolve to go all the way. I have no doubt that Nigeria would still defend the trophy in Morocco. The boys just have to dig deep and find the inner strength,” he said.

    There might be a Funny peice of history about Nigerian foot ball about to repeat itself now.. In 1980 the Green Eagles won the Nations Cup, but in 1982 didnt do so well as defending Champions, perhaps a First round exit. In 1994, we won the trophy again, but didint get the chance to defend it in1996 due CAF exclusion and politcs comming into play between Abacha and South African government. From year 2000 when we returned, it was an era of Golden bronzes and one Silver medal in 2000.
    In 2012 we didnt qualify, but in 2013 we won the tournament against all odds. Perhaps history might be re-writting itself again.. Struggling to qualify, and perhaps we may not to qualify, ie still reaping the benefit of a fortunate Gold medal in 2013 CAN nations cup.. I would personnally prefer not to qualify this time around and come back stronger in 2 years, to put Nigeria in stronger shape to reclaim the Trophy again in 2017.. We never know.. becuase while we were qualifying without careful planning and execution, we continued the GOLDEN BRONZE Era.. NIGERIANS would actually prefer may 1 CAN trophy in 4 years than continuous era of GOLDEN BRONZES..

    Keshi should go now and NFF should bring back Siasia as Eagles coach, Siasia is far better than Keshi, everybody can see how Siasia play during his time they play good game Sisasia didn’t lost to guinea but Keshi lost to Congo and Sudan and win only one game out of 12 games is it a good coach? Siasia boys play good game and won matches during his time until last match against guinea when they rebelled against him by using people like Osase and co to make him lost his job please NFF should forget the past and called Siasia back and give him a second chance as Brazil gave Dunga a second chance God bless 9ja….

    Keshi has gone 11 matches with 5 loss, 5 draw and 1 win, he has been playing with the same players good result, I’ll suggest he drop Echiejile and Efe in the next match against Sudan, play Oshaniwa, either move Oboabona or Omeruo to right back and pair any of the with Egwuekwe in the defense, close eye and drop Mikel, play Onazi, Raheem and Akpan or Aluko in the midfield, then use Emenike Musa and Babatunde upfront.

    If Yobo was in that game against Sudan, some of our ‘politician of a coach’s’ and last AFCON intoxicated supporters would have said he made us lose that match, because he caused the goal. Shamelessness Persists!

  • Samuel God bless u that is it.Siasia one i love his way playing n keep his teams growthing before Osaze ,,Mikel kill his game.

    what kind of blood is flowing in a black man body? if it could be a white coach , i bet he could have resigned immediately after that Sudan loss. KESHI why cant u reserve your respects?
    pls good naija people!!!! its high time we forget about MORROCO 2015, also about SIASIA; KESHI ; AMODU and these crop squad of super eagles. then offer Garba Marwa the job who could breed a new super eagles for us .
