I'm drenched in sweat.
Naija's group was tight, but Iceland was on top. It all came down to the last games.... when it happened. :scared:

So I went on YouTube minding my business, and watching anything but soccer, you know just to take my mind off the nightmare. But guess what I kept coming across. :woot:

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, a video is worth a lot more! Enjoy. :D

Be sure to check out the clip at 6:10.
Na wah for Mikel, it was like taking candy from a baby. :laugh:




BTW, this video does not include Messi's insane World Cup qualification exploits. :shock: :shock:

Lol that's Mikel for you! The person who robbed you of the ball is sprinting towards goal all others are sprinting to catch up with him and Mikel just casually jogs back!

I do believe that along with Mikel is our best outfield player of the last decade.

BUT I will agree that Mikel does not do enough dirty work in the team, and he does have a hint of bigmanism in his blood.

As far as Mikel loyalists go I am probably in the 90% bracket, heck maybe even 95%, with Bigpokey in the 100% bracket...but you cannot deny the FACTS, the bobo is a bigman.

There is no way you should lose the ball like that and not track back.

If we were a team loaded with stars, that would be a benchable offense.

A nightmare for you means we topped the group easily. So I guess it's good news for us if your nightmare comes true. :thumb:

Very talented player indeed but some times his game leaves me scratching my head for answers. Why was he trying to pass the ball backwards when he had a lot of options up front??? He did the same thing in the last friendly against Argentina. He brilliantly held of 3 argentines and dragged them out of their defensive positions. He had players who had run into space and taken advantage of the situation, but decided to do a u turn and pass the ball backwards :???:

Mikel stopped because 3 other Naija players already crowded Messi. Though Mikel could have ran ahead towards goal to form another shield. But Messi is a special player.

I don't think Mikel was/is fast enough to get there and form another shield.
He stopped because he couldn't keep up with Messi's speed. :)

You may be right, but why are did so many of us make the same error then? Could it be because none of us can remember the last time we saw Mikel show urgency in trying to recover a ball?

Mikel works VERY HARD for the team when he is on the ball (Which is why we love him), but off the ball he virtually doesn't exist.

In that situation he should have taken one for the team. Collect your yellow card and pay attention next time. These are some of the tactical nous which lets the team down in certain situations.

World cup no be beans!

Well we all know the Mikel of today isn't a runner or ball hustler, he lost that quality years ago but made up for it with his immaculate ball shielding abilities and intelligent reading of the game. Now we have players that can actually track back and run any opponent off the pitch... Imagine Mikel losing the ball against the run of play to Messi who then races towards goal with the confidence that good old Mikel won't bother even chasing him... until he sees Ndidi or Etebo waiting for him at the other end of the field, my guy will reconsider his decision immediately.

I had a dream that Uganda failed to qualify after having led the group. Then I woke up and found that it is TRUE! Uganda-be-kidding me.
