It's curious to note that, no one has mentioned, we were back to a back 4 after a while.

Sampaoli's unbeaten streak with Argentina ... gone!

Reports are that Aguero fainted in the dressing room after the game. Hope he is OK.

Winning wasn't the priority, but this will be a huge mental boost for the boys.

I think we will do well next year !

Takeaways. Very nice to be able to make conclusions and improve while winning.

1. The Akpeyi conversation, on account of evidence is resolved. Sometimes peeps know this stuff, but the best way to settle things like this in a way that affords a sense of fairness is to give the player a chance to play himself in or out. For Akpeyi, this, I hope was the one last chance. He's earned his way out

2. Tyronne Ebuehi - the diagonals to that side of the pitch was dealt with and neutralized once he came on. I think he'll go to Russia

3. Uzouho - I need a few more games to see if he can start but from today's game, he'll be on the plane at least as back up

- Others:

Ola Aina is NOt a lock-in. Brian Idowu has more or less displaced him at LB. Aina has a chance because he can play LB and RB.


Controversial takeaways -

I think Ogu isn't good enough. I think he played himself out


Our "enforcer" dey go world cup.


Yup! No question about that. LIke I said, i am not a fan, but only a blind person will question his performances. He is not a starter, but he is definitely good enough for the 23. :clap: :clap:

Wrong.

We did not play a back four at any point during this game.

Back 5? Yes.

Absolutely.
Fascinating subject but mental edge wins games.

I disagree with you guys. Swagger is great, but not when it can potentially turn to overconfidence, i.e., preparing to face Brazil when you haven't played Denmark. 1998 was when expectations and swagger were high....

Our best midfielder, hands down!

And to think some people spoke of dropping him for Ogu some days ago. :lol: :lol: :lol:


Otein mwen,

That was me. I will gladly swallow that humble pie. Ndidi was FANTASTIC today. My MOM and its not even close. These are they type of games he can show his worth. He was amazing breaking up and starting play. He didn't have too much time on the ball so he always made the simplest first option which aided our counter attacking.

No more Ndidi complaints from me.


Enomwanren, I sey make i use backyard yab you small. :D

Chief, the difference is that this time, we have discipline. If you look back at that team.. team that was friends with Abacha and choosing which of their friend was selected. A team that alienated Ikpeba. There is a difference this time.

So glad I got to watch this wonderful match:
1. The 'tale of two halves' clearly reflected the change in mentality. Our guys showed the Argentines too much respect in the 1H.
2. I've been crying about LB and RB for a while now. After finally seeing Ebuehi, I can't help wishing Shehu can play LB also. If it's true that Idowu actually came into LB, then we ought to leave him there. Echiejile has no business going to Russia. Much of the 2H resurgence came from shutting down the flanks when the Argies had the ball.
3. Akpeyi is not ready for this. That spot should be a straight fight between Ezenwa and Uzoho, unless Enyeama comes back.
5. Musa has to play more, or at least come in early enough to punish teams with his pace and experience.

That 98 side for me was the worst TEAM we ever took to a WC. Uncoachable lot. Once Troussier left, it was a joke of a side. How they got to the 2nd round is beyond my imagination.
We took worse individuals to 02 and 2010 but as a unit, those poor sides were better IMHO. 98 was a total joke. It was no surprise that Denmark tore them apart. Bulgaria and Spain landed serious body blows and somehow we didn't get beat. Denmark only did what Yugolsavia and others in the preWC friendlies had shown.

With this side, as you said earlier, as long as external wahala doesn't creep in. I see a humble team who are determined to achieve.

Rohr clearly was experimenting with defensive options. The win was irrelevant other than as a confidence booster. Idowu, Ebuehi and Aina provide options at the back.

It may not have been the uppermost goal, but a win was most definitely NOT "irrelevant"...

Fact not feelings!

If we lose it is "we can't beat Argentina" but when we win it is "a win was irrelevant"...Fans sha...smh
