Not surprising. I said on the other thread the Nigerian team selection is poor, especially offensively. This type of tourney requires more midfielders than traditional defenders. Sunday Oliseh, Mutiu Adepoju and Finidi George would have given so much balance to this team.
Aghahowa, Uche Okechukwu and Taribo West, unfortunately could not offer much.
Bottom line is that most were totally out of shape. I think they took it as a novelty tournament but others took it seriously. What were Okocha Snr, Uche Okechukwu and Taribo doing in the squad? Even Bbayaro sef.
Yakubu our best player was phoned up by Okocha on the morning of the first game and 53 year old Peter Rufai was our second best performer. And they seemed to be the fittest.

:agree:

I'm highly disappointed in the preparation of the team. These ex eagles came into this tournament out of every shape. It is fun, but at the minimum, show up prepared to entertain the fans.

Try go any play ground do Sunday-Sunday na so dem full... out of shape but insisting on playing.

Rufai and JJ still look good. Yak too... although I won't add him to the list as he was still playing until very recently.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Very impressed with Rufai's shape. If we are to believe ageologists, the man should be in his 60's by now.

How did oyibo end up keeping for Naija after Rufai got injured?

The tournament has a single backup keeper for any team that needs a keeper. Malik Taylor is the tournaments backup keeper.
Aha! Thanks! :thumb:

Rufai was actually amazing. I really had to do a double take in the first game when I saw how he was diving for low balls and keeping them out.
54 years old! Wow.

Add on top the major age cutting this generation of players used to do, Yakubu is the only one that could somewhat keep up lol.

Thus what you are saying is our players are "probably" 100 years old - eh?

To be honest, it would have been difficult for them to prepare...compared to the europeans and the brazilians. They live all over the world....for them to prepare, they would need to camp. Who's gonna pay for that? I read on this thread someone say one team was preparing for 3 months....for the eagles, that's virtually impossible. The players from more developed countries can easily pull this off....Nigerian players can't....they're much farther apart than the europeans

It would have been a goal a minute and it is a 20minute game. Kai, we dodged bullet there.

When I saw Rufai in the list, I knew we would be in for a basket of gaol harvest...Why Jay Jay didn't select Ike Shorunmu or Alloy Agu, baffles me..
