Considering the number of corners and freekicks we concede in games......I think this team has done well with set pieces.

Yes we have a problem defending set pieces no doubt. But giving up 7 corners in 17 mins is an aberration.

We have always had a problem defending them. This is nothing new. I hope we get better at it.

I just hate so called fans opening threads to say we will chop goals and are going 3 out and are coming to take bets. What manner of fan are you? Yes come in and say we have a problem, we discuss what can possibly be done to rectify in 7 days.

Miss me with the negative B.S.

#SoarSuperEagles

Fans that love their team criticize their team. I believe one of the biggest problems with the eagles are the fans that celebrate mediocrity.

We are going 3 and out. You simply cannot defend so comically at this level. Our opponents surely would have noted this by now.

We can dominate all 3 games but when you have such a weak Achilles heel as such, we aint going nowhere.

Before the Czechs scored I just texted my brother saying how we will give up goals from set pieces this WC.

Minutes later the Czechs scored. What disgraceful defending.

It was John Ogu who lost his marker and gave him a free header on goal. Uzoho saved but the rebound was tucked in.

It's game over folks. This thread will be resurrected in each of the 3 matches.

BUMP.

Kai no be only Nigeria either it is a problem of all African teams. In fact so far EVERY GOAL SCORED ON AN AFRICAN TEAM HAS BEEN VIA A SET PIECE

1. Egypt lose to Uruguay in last minute from a free kick

2. Morocco score an own goal in the last minute from a free kick

3. Nigeria let in 2 goals from corner kicks, 1 own goal and 1 penalty



This kind of comical defending will keep African teams behind. Even in 2014 Ghana lost to the US from a corner kick.

This is absolutely disgraceful.

And the goal scored against Brazil was also from a corner.

Yes we don't defend it well, neither do we give away many goals. How many goals did we concede from set pieces against Argentina, Serbia, Poland, England, Czech, all good teams? Only 2 out of 7 goals we conceded, and the England first goal was the only direct one.

Defending might not be the issue now, its concentration! Nigerian teams dont know how to concentrate for 90 mins

Spain and Costa Rica must also be African countries abi? Yes we are poor at set pieces, but don't reduce this an African thing.

Post subject:  Re: SET PIECE DEFENDING

Fact is that when you have no penetration set pieces is a major way of scoring. Could setpiece defending be better? Sure.

But the issue isn't set piece defending as much as African teams not creating enough threat WHEN THEY DO SETPIECES! That's what makes the problem much more severe.

I will let you find the stats relevant to Naija :mrgreen:


:taunt: Thanks bro.

I don't think it is that huge of a problem to be honest with you.

We have to do a better job of not giving up cheap corners.

Employ a combination of zonal marking and man marking.

The last two corner kick goals we gave up we pretty much did all the right things but the other team got to the ball. Against England, the pick worked... we have to work through those picks. And the man at the goalline has to do a better job. And Keeper has to have full command of his 6 yard box. Take heads along the way if you are going to come out. Have an element of wickedness...

Goal against the Czech Republic, we just have to clear our lines and be attentive.

The bottomline is that we gave them multiple cracks at getting their routine right.

Again, what is more worrisome was our inability to execute one decent corner kick despite our own numerous chances at it.

Thanks for your question. I doubt if we are really any worse than most teams at defending set pieces but we should attack better too with set piece play. Lets leave it for Enugu II to do the analysis. :mrgreen:

I have a question for the coaches in the house, can a team really work and improve on set pieces when they themselves are not good at executing set pieces? Its not like you can call Iceland or Argentina's players to come and play the corners and FK's so you can work on defending them. So since we ourselves are poor at taking set pieces (we barely threaten from them) would we ever really be able to work on defending good set pieces in our training sessions?

Another set piece goal conceded by Africa.

AFRICA HAS NOT YET CONCEDED FROM OPEN PLAY.

And who says this is not an African problem ?

Stop being naive.

LOL

I was thinking the exact same thing.

When Rohr told us that they were practicing defending set pieces.

I thought WE SUCK AT TAKING THEM.

So how can we really practice when you have Moses taking them, and nobody good with the head attacking them.

Abeg we need to hire a European team who failed to qualify to pepper us in training.

In the light of Uruguay's brilliant set piece goal scored by Suarez today - I don dey shake.

There've been some brilliant set piece executions. England's Kane goal and Suarez's are up there with the best of them.

The number of set piece goals scored at this world cup has been incredible. I think the first 10 or so goals conceded by African teams at this World Cup were from set pieces.
