Not enough players were invited. If you are gonna be submitting a provisional list of 30 players, you should have at least 35 players in camp.

Theoretically, especially, if we didn't bother about fifa ranking (should we have bothered), we could have used 44 players , that is, 11 each in 4 halves. We may not use up to that but I bet the players would have sat up the more. We used just one goalie in 180 minutes.

There are no more friendlies before the list of 30 players are submitted, meaning 2 players who were not on the current friendlies roster will be named and we cannot name any of our 23 outside the 30.

There was no competition for the slots. and the players appeared to play like their spots were assured. The individualism in the Serbia game was shocking. Using a combo of Joel Obi, Ogenyi Onazi and Wlffred Ndidi was a fallout of the lack of ample options in camp. So, we couldn't get another guy noted for attacking mf play?


Don't think it was wasted.

He played different formation and tactics. He tried some players in different positions. He gave the young Keeper two solid games to gain some experience. This will help out a lot going forward.



Kpom, he also tested Ebuehi in the shallow end and it showed that a) he was not quite ready b) Shehu is gem and that question should be put to bed. We also gae Uzoho much needed experience and as he is a rookie, he just needs games if not we are going into the world cup in a precarious position.

Over the past few games, Argentina included, we tested several formations with the same personal, by the end of qualifiers, most eagles watchers new at 18-19 of the squad, so when 30 people are invited and the same guys are used, what is the major issues. We need chemistry, we dont have the luxury of being 2-3 deep in each position.

Not wasted. We got to see Uzoho, Idowu, Joel, and Ebuehi play extended minutes and the friendlies exposed some of our deficiencies. Also showed Kele is no AM and Ndidi and Joel are better in defensive positions in midfield.

Not wasted in my opinion. This is the point of friendlies, test players and formations!

Are you satisfied with just 1 goalie in 180 minutes...Junior Ajayi given just 3 minutes...


Bros Ajayi is an unknown quantity to Rohr and has not had more than 1 training session. I didn't expect him to play much. We have more friendlies, by then Rohr whould have had a good look at him.

This is the problem with fans, from the comfort of their warm rooms and shiny keypads , they know how best the coach who is out there in cold,sun and rain assessing the players, fans believe they know who should play and should not. :lol:

But the coach gets paid. He can get frozen by Iceland but he must make our team hot.
