Yep:
Missed 2 ANcs in a row
Youth and women's game in historic slump
Incompetent FA even by Nigerian standards
An unclear team, new manager and complete inability to score goals.

Today was not encouraging.

These are dark times for Nigerian football.

And yet

I sense Nigeria will qualify for 2018 with surprising ease.
And all because of timing.

A new captain with nothing left to prove apart from his qualities as a leaders. Rio was a dry run. His performance today a warning shot. Mikel will drive this team on and act as an elder statesman throughout the qualifiers.

The emergence of a bona fide next generation. Nacho and Iwobi will provide that wonderful combination of outstanding talent, youthful fearlessness and experience of playing in the most demanding situations. Alongside them expect the emergence of one of Imoh, Success or Osimhen to provide Nigeria with the most talented squad on the continent.

A settled back four. Balogun and Ekong make up for what they lack in talent with discipline, athleticism and ruggedness. Not since Yobo and an in form okoronkwo over a decade ago have we had such a partnership in central defence.

Around this group, a set of full backs seem on the cusp, defensive midfielders are emerging to take the load off Mikel and the erratic talents of Moses, Musa and Ighalo remain established internationals capable of hurting the best teams in the world on their day.

In addition, Cameroun and Zambia are not strong teams. Algeria I sense are over-rated, never capable of winning in sub-Saharan Africa.

Watch Nigeria qualify for the 2018 World Cup with surprising ease.

We may end up qualifying for Russia, but there will be nothing easy about it.

You maybe right...................Nigeria always makes easy things look hard and 'supposably' hard things easy.

You gotta love it!! :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: :rotf: Kai, na real wa! Instead of simply acknowledging that Nigeria has as good a chance as the other teams, it is now that we will simply walk on all of them with ease.

Well let me qualify the phrase "with ease"....
We'll win all out home games and have qualified before we have to go Algeria in Nov 17.
For a comparison, Egypt qualified for ANC 2017 with ease.
That's the bet I'm making having watched all the sides and looked at the fixtures.

Bros, our WOMEN's game is hardly in any "slump" (let alone "historic")...
Did not make the Olympics as usual, but are in the U17 and U20 WWCs this year - and Falcons set to defend the AWC in Nov!

Based on the Tanzania game this is not far fetched. This Team if improved upon will do some serious damage in the qualifiers..but we have to learn how to score.

True,I don't know why a follower of Nigerian football will say such a thing but yes we have a talented group of players to look forward too.

I am very happy about the direction of the SE.

This team I feel is "about to explode" as some people are suggesting.

Had we been in Gabon, I feel the ANC would be ours to lose.

If we make it to Russia, teams better watch out.

But folks the sad truth is this.

Even if we play very well and are on top of our game, realistically we have no more than a coins toss odds to qualify for Russia.

This group could be decided by poor ref decisions, bad luck, or simply a moment of brilliance from a key player of any team.

Algeria is no joke and they will also be hungry to qualify. I think we are overall a better team than them, but it is very close, and when you are up against a team like that it can go either way. We have to be on our game 100% and even then it is not a given.

In addition, we will owe the coaches their salaries.

In addition, we will not be able to pay players bonuses and allowances as at when due.

In addition, the team will apply a day after the match :taunt:

I can't remember when we qualified for any tournament with ease. We always make qualifications harder than it's supposed to be in many cases, I do not expect it to be different in this case.
