Strong start from the Super Eagles! 17:10, Jonathan Gorrie07:00 - Strong from Nigeria, penning Sierra Leone and boasting most of the ball thus far. KICK-OFF17:04, Jonathan GorrieWe’re off and running! Fast start from the Super Eagles, though their opposition proved a strong team at the AFCON earlier this year.
I think the boys showed the right spirit for the game and more importantly won the game. Anytime the team is losing, the players are overhyped, even before the match ends. Anytime they are winning, Nigeria has a group of highly talented players. Nigerian fans. Nobody is talking about the pitch. No one is talking about the coach being new on the job. No one is talking the new system and philosophy he’s trying to introduce. Players are the guolty party who must always take the flags. NFF isn’t overhyped.
Slow in thinking, slow in response, slow in development. Giant of Africa by foot Our defences needs work….. We always look vulnerable at the back apart from Bassey. Field Marshall. General. Sir Johnbob 6 months ago Nigeria’s biggest problems are profligacy in front of goal and Moses on set pieces, don’t get me wrong, I rate Moses very highly and would even go as far as saying that he is one of our best if not best player but we MUST move him off set pieces, corners and free kicks for crying out loud! Let him continue the brilliant wing play and trickery but stay well clear when it comes to set piece haba! We have the makings of a good team, at least a competitive one simply from what I’ve seen of Peserio, he seems to be cut from a good cloth, he has the temperament and shows passion, eventually when the boys settle and what he is asking of them sinks in, I think we’ll see better results – Of the only other variable that must be gotten right has to be invitations and selections, only the very best and we have the best individaukky in Africa at least, we just need someone with half a brain and some serious cahunas to string it all together…could Peserio be the one? Only time can tell but I like what I see so far.
I know. But you must consider the resources at the coach disposal. With no quality defensive midfielder currently and with the principle of attacking football, he has to do with two natural no10 as his central midfielders. Moses Simon is man of the match so far. Next is Alex iwobi. My analysis of the game will come later. @footballfanatic, it was due to the coach pattern and selection, we don’t have any recognize defensive midfielder on the pitch, it was IWOBI that’s playing the role. It’s allow too much pressure on the defence because there is no ball breaker. Secondly, Chukwueze and Simon are not helping out the defence, they supposed to be tracking back.
What are you smoking? Chief – I was just thinking the same, I am left pondering if that comment is tongue-in-cheek or out of sheer blind patriotic wishful thinking – The sentiment is on the right tracks at least I’ll give him that much lol Ekong project, Please God take it off Nigeria caused the first goal. One one one dribble. Always causing us problems every match. This chukwueze player needs help o.
It is the players that are overrated.. The same of overhyped players ended so well in Spain, Scotland, Holland, Italy, Germany, name them. We shall should sometimes be realistic and considerate in our criticism as times. @ Oladapo Bro Yes o! And while there re at it let them sort out those embarrassingly disappointing pitches too! Unbelievable!! Our govt is sabotaging us with their corruption! I belief we play the most entertaining and purposeful football. We could have walloped them 5:0. Next time we will win 6:0, 4:0 because we are super eagles. We have A grade players in top league accross the world and now we have world class coach with winning mentality so every team must fall Such a silly comment.
Please ekong and ajayi no be good pair o. Prome to stupid errors. Balogun and omeruo should replace this duo. Coavh don’t try that iwobi Aribo midfield again it explained the defence. Much improvement when etebo came in. Well good win for pesseiro. We should habe scored some goals to take off the pressure in the last minute. How many goals did we score? When Etebo came in? I wonder what version of this match you saw. We scored 2 goals because we opened them up with Aribo and Iwobi. Etebo coming in killed the attack.

The Ministry of Sports has offices right there in the national stadium, yet they never saw the state and extent of deterioration of this playing surface. Is the pitch of good standard before? They just did a shoddy job and started making noise up and down. That sports minister suppose to have been sacked if Nigeria is a sane country. Imagine the pitch they spent billions of naira on few months ago. I think this is the second international match they will play on that pitch since it was commissioned. You know some players equally complained about that stadium after Ghana match. Even Tanzania have a better pitch than us, we are just useless in everything That’s it, someone can not be giant and not slow in everything like Elephant.
they did their Best, we should commend their effort.. friendly matches are so important.. it gave confidence in Ajayi, I can’t remember the last time Ajayi played in a competitive march ( I know he played in the afcon) he seems to have broken the oyibo wall( na black oyibo him be).. he should be commended for doing that.
He was the last player to break the oyibo wall and he is back again to break it… Just look at iwobi, the friendly games made him discover a new position, in defensive midfield.. Players like awaziem should not be invited going further, let him get a good club first.. he was poor in the friendly games, it showed he needs to up his game.. so sorry for desser, the chances he missed caused him his spot in the team.. you don’t miss such chances when you are competing with Sadiq and oshimen..
The change should have come earlier. Chukwueze should be coming off from the bench. Bassey very good player. Good crossers of the ball. Good defensively. That aina cross is world Class. Being playing with injury. Still formidable. I think Aribo can’t handle African football. We don try for am. They moved him up, he still was not effective.

We were too predictable. Onyeka should have been a better player in that position. Because he is forward-thinking. Neo. But we could have conceded goals. You think using Aribo amd iwobi was a good option defensively. That pair exposed the defense. You only looked in the aspect of scoring. How long are we going to cry about bad pitches. Nff and sports ministry a great embarrassment. How do you bring any team to play on this kind of pitch. Let us follower the rest of the world. The pitch was poor, but kudos to the boys..
Still, Iwobi calmly stroked one home to restore parity before Osimhen powered in what proved to be a winner five minutes before half-time after good work from Moses Simon. Eventually, the Super Eagles got there. See how all of the action unfolded with Standard Sport’s LIVE blog below...

Please any links to watch the game. It’s live on DSTV Channel 209. Very horrible pitch. Blame the NFF if SE didn’t win this match Ok wow this is getting interesting Defense just let them in like that smh I think it is high time the revamp the entire defense. It is high time the coach revamp the entire defense. So the sports ministry didn’t set up a maintenance team for the pitch of the Abuja stadium shocking! Why are you shocked…? If the pitch doesnt end up in ICU, where will there be another avenue to quote “N400m for re-grassing of the MKO Abiola National Stadium pitch in the 2023 budget…? Even CAF that is based in Cairo knows that the best playing pitch in Nigeria is in Uyo.
