This is actually possible with this set of of players, but Rohr has to ring the changes.

Certainly possible. It's just unlikely at this point.

Anyway, we're here to learn. :roll:

Na academy we we dey?

To borrow an Ayo Akinfe quote and I paraphrase, the National Team is no place to learn your trade. You either come prepared or stay well away.

A new coach can build upon and continue the work started by Rohr. Pinnick has done well to put a lot of the organisation and structure in place; that effort is arguably more significant than Rohr's.

TY, you know that aint gonna happen. It never has!
We as a nation need to learn how to hold our nerve and try something called perseverance for once.
We are too flighty!

For me, I think the first thing is to commission a number of people to do a technical analysis of our performance, covering both in game and longer technical issues. And I’m not talking about the stupid comments from Rohr about the clubs our players play for.

It clearly goes beyond Rohr. Never expected anything from him and this team.

We are not producing players and that is a far, far more serious issue.

I mean, we are in the WC with a third division GK.

The weakest team for us is not Iceland. For a team like Nigeria that creates very few chances, playing a team that defends so well will be so difficult. Croatia will be our easiest game and we will regret not going all out to win. But no sentiments, we are the weakest in the group.

If you have a clinical finisher like Iheanacho, than a few chances is enough.

With all due respect, that is wishful thinking. Many of us have been on this forum since 1998. it's one thing to lie to others, but another thing entirely to continue to lie to ourselves. I strongly suspect that our problem is much deeper. God has given us more than many other countries in the world. No amount of praying will help us. Nigeria is a sick country.

All this, 'throwing the baby out with the bath water', just after one loss to start the tournament?
Talk about a lack of mental confidence to rebound, and fight our way out of the hole we dug ourselves in.

I believe many of us claiming to be sports (football) experts, fail to realize the possibilities
we have if we put in the effort and get some lucky breaks. If we can feel and utter such pessimism
as fans, why should we expect any better from the team?
For me, the tournament is not over till we are truly eliminated. At least, let's hold some belief.

Says Mr "we'll beat Croatia. You can take that to the bank". He might yet be correct. If he is, then it'll be a story similar to Bulgaria's at the 94 World cup. I don't wish anyone bad, but it'll be a lot easier if Messi doesn't play in our match with the Argies. Rohr is a terrible wildcard that we all weren't expecting though.

Enough of talking North, South, East, & West.
It is a clueless coach when it comes to inviting & selecting naija players.
You build a house on quick sand, it will buckle, fall or collapse.
Luckily for SE their next match is against a team playing kick away, run, & jump football.

All this talk about players and clubs is of not much consequence.

This player in Iceland, Birkir Bjarnason is listed as playing for Aston Villa in the English Championship.

How about Jón Daði Böðvarsson? He plays for Reading.

This is a country that a few years ago didn't register in the first 100 of FIFA ranking.

The Danish team that whopped our asses in 1998 were using Championship players on their squad if memory serves me correctly.

How about English players? Only 4 years ago, they had hit rock bottom and couldn't go any lower.

So it is all about the coach and system, guys. The coach has to know his team and bring out the best in them.
