Its easier to win games when you are underestimated. Thats just my own feelings, but I am happy to be proved wrong.





You guys just dey vex person with this "Argentina with no Messi" did they not play with 11 players? Or is it not certain, even with injury (backrooms staff) that Messi will go to the world cup? Was it not here some weeks ago that some said Kelechi might not make the flight to Russia? What happened, our no 9 Ighalo was missing with injury and Kelechi took his chance. What if Messi was available, and also Ighalo and Moses were all available. What is saying that we might not have won heavier.



More than probably any other player on earth, Lionel Messi carries his national team on his back. Argentina’s options are severely limited without him. If we had started the game with Uzoho, Ebuehi and Idowu, I do not see how they would have scored at all!

Chai. See selective perception at its best. :roll:

You did not notice that at least the first 30 or so comments about England were totally negative?
I couldn't even find your quoted comment - got tired of searching for it.
If anything, England fans are more critical of their national team than even Nigerians. You no see that one.
This una hatred for England pass be kiaful.

There were quite a few comments questioning why Nigeria was rated highly.

Maybe so, but the first 30 or so comments I had the patience to read from top were totally negative about England and so wiseone's comment about 'entitled English fans' was misleading.
That's my point.

I like the high ratings, however, I think teams like Mexico, Colombia, and England have better chemistry than Nigeria at the moment. I also think Argentina will be a different team when the world cup starts. It's difficult not to consider Argentina as one of the favorites despite their sluggish start to the qualifiers.

I thought maybe I was the only one who noticed that Iheanacho has an attrocious first touch. Way too heavy to succeed at this level. Too often it gifts the opposition the ball

In fact, it wasn't a pass... it was his usual heavy touch.

For real. In fact, we should just change Nigeria vs Argentina to Nigeria vs Messi, because everytime we have played and lost to Argentina, it has been because of Lionel Messi Magic.

That said, it is not healthy for any team to be overdependent on one player. If Messi gets hurt, Argentina is fvcked!

I would have preferred for Nigeria to fly under the rader but oh well, we just have to be very prepared now because everyone will want to beat us, I pray we are not complacentlike Colombia was in 94

How?

The competition for spots is still intense. Complacency sets in when spots are guaranteed. People dey snatch shirt make you forget the guy who had it before...

Competition no go let complacency set in.

I agree, way too much competition in the team and Rohr's German nature will never allow complacency in this team.
The only thing we need to pray against is injuries. Like that Argentinian midget we wont mention again, we also need Mikel to be Mikel in order for us to function at our optimum.

Lets just pray everyone is healthy.

Damunk, you are usually a reasonable and balanced chap. Not on this one though.

I am not sure if your device is hiding some of the comments, but there were many comments that referenced Iceland and Nigeria specifically asking why they were ranked above England. Please note that comments are not necessarily displayed chronologically on all devices (e.g. there is an option to view comments based on number of recommendations). Hence the first 30 comments YOU see may not be the first 30 comments I see.
