That isn't true. In 2014, we were the lowest ranked in our group and had those discussions here. We qualified however but it was not a weak group.

Iran and Bosnia. It was the weakest group of that world cup.

Rohr can't see the obvious needed changes, that's the reason the SE will be humiliated in this World Cup. It will only get worse for SE with Rohr as coach. Now he is thinking about starting Musa because he was told that the Russian fans love Musa.

We ain't going nowhere.

You only need to listen to him at press conferences and see his body language on the touch line.

You already knew we lost the few times the camera panned on him.

Am I the only one on this site who sees the truth written on the wall? There is nothing to hope if you don't plant the right seed. You can't plant an orange and hoping for a watermelon. Where'd the do dat at??

When you put everything on faith it tells me you've been in trouble to begin with.

Yes all we have to do is keep praying, since our opponents do pray too..abi...what we saw yesterday has been in every friendly we played. SE aren't getting out of that group. Nigeria never advances from the group after losing its first game. Fact

I agree with you. I honestly don't see how the Eagle's will beat Iceland and Argentina. Iceland will run Nigeria to the ground. They are very fast and the transition from the defence to attack is very good. Waiting to see how Nigeria defense will cope with the superior attacking power of Argentina. Nigeria attack on the other hand is toothless, not a single shot at goal against Croatia, thats embarrassing.

Nigeria has been playing in the same lethargic manner with an ultra conservative coach who is not prepared to think outside the box for months now and we think we can just turn it on ?. Yes it is theoretically possible to qualify but highly unlikely with the half witted carpenter disguised as a so called coach sitting on the bench.
I’m all for team unity and singing around a piano like a 3rd rate choir etc but there are no big characters or leaders in the team. The captain as is docile in his verbal expression as is in his play. The other players just seem too content and happy to be selected.
Where is %$#@^& Gucci slippers when you need one ? There are too many ‘safe’ characters in this team. Too safe in their attitude and play.
As for Croatia not deserving to win or we were unlucky ? Please. I daresay we were lucky to walk away with only 2 against us. It was another heavy footed display.
It is theoretically possible to qualify and I certainly will be rooting for us to do so. I will however not be losing any sleep or making any sacrifices of my time or emotions over this bunch.

joao, how the hell do they go through all that hell of qualifying and still play crap in the main event, this is unacceptable. we don't care if they lost, they should show the world that they can play good football, give us some happy memories and not just talking about nonsense kit designs etc.

iceland has been very new to the international scene and even though we all know they aren't going to win these tournaments, they keep on getting better and better and showing the world not to fear any opponent and giving your best for their country to the final whistle. this is what we expect from our country not this crap that we are watching.
...because different players qualify you while different players play the main event, hence we the ever present agents hawking their favorite players we see here on CE days leading to the main event.

We Nigerians are our worse enemy. Money over achievement for the country, even personal accolade is overlooked because they rather amass that money.

You are making zero sense, Rohr stuck to the same players that qualified and ignored the obvious better players that would improve the team.

Qualification is still achievable if Rohr is able to ring the changes, but I doubt he will

33333---555555---222222 !!!!! Please

Play Iheanacho and Iwobi as CFs

Moses is a wingback (left)

Ebuehi is the right wing back

Etebo and Ogu play.


Unfortunately, I know Rohr will continue 4-2-3-1 until the team dies

On reflection we did not play badly and frankly qualification is still within our hands. If Argentina draw Croatia, that leaves them with 2 and 4 points respectively..Argentina win the they have 4 point to Croatia's 3. We are just going to have to fight out way out of this, we may be down but we are not out.

Against Iceland, playing 1 upfront (Ighalo) will be suicide because with their defensive organisation and their physicality, Ighalo won't even get a sniff.

The real Nigeria hasn't shown up yet.... I would rather we switched to our tradition 4-4-2 and throw the kitchen sink at Iceland.

********************* Ighalo *********************************

***************************Nacho ****************************

Moses ******** Ndidi***********Etebo*************Iwobi**********

Idowu *********Ekong ********* Balogun ********** Ebuehi*********

****************** Uzoho ********************************

Iwobi and Etebo should have licence to bomb forward in alternate fashion, so we always have 3 sitting to keep our shape.

Mikel can replace Etebo if we need to defend our lead and ride out the game..

Musa should replace Ighalo to inject pace as soon as the old fox has run himself ragged.
