Russia is the home team total exception and they have some decent guys

... But no world class players. Plus they earned it on their own terms and hard work. :P

Russia got here by playing the most defeatists football and exceptionally negative football. I dont see them going past the Semis. Infact, their lack of world class players should see them end at the quarter finals.

am sure if you called Rohr and offered him QF.....he will bite your hand off.....he cant even get past our group......whose fault is it?....the less than world class footballer or the manager that couldn't get anything out of his team

Again, QF is not winning the WC or a WC medal. We all saw what happened in that game. Spain ran out of luck, Russia did the Morinho. I hope they use that style to win the WC.

Teh boys get seperated from the men from QF.

Simply put, Nigeria does not have a have a single world class footballer.
We tend to overestimate the abilities of our boys, and that is what leads to our perennial disappointment.

Now let’s put things in perspective; African football is light years behind the rest of world. Not one of our players is at the elite level, however with good organization and support, our team can always give a good account of themselves. Let’s accept that and look forward to the next ANC.

Look at the skill and intelligence of the Brazilian team, they would have ripped us apart, but there is hope. For the first time ever I saw a Nigeria with an organized defense, a team that honestly has potential to build into a cohesive unit. And it is telling that the majority of said defense never played for a moment in our local league.

Let’s accept our standard and move on

They seek him here.
They seek him there.
Moderators seek him everywhere.
They seek him at night
And even at noon
That damn elusive cooking spoon
