I have a feeling this match may not live up to expectation as both sides are very cautious in their approach. If this match produce 3 or more goals it will be a surprise.

On one part I was right, on another didn't expect the match to be so one sided.

Man mi..No be Manager's remit to create talent. Building a domestic league with talent that can compete against the world is not a short project. It will take decades , lots of private investment and money and serious change of attitude of Nigerians who would otherwise support European league teams on T.V.
I think that should be NFA focus not the managers,

The best team in their group after Brazil was Serbia. Over confidence killed the Serbs and by the time the Swiss scored, the Serbs got crazy chasing victory rather than hold their point and ended up losing all points. Serbia would have beaten these two poor teams.

Now, I wished Nigeria had been drawn in Group G or H.

Aren't we learning and rebuilding with Rohr? The best way to build is by poaching other countries rejects? If no single player in Nigeria is good enough for Rohr then we have a long way to go...

My fellow England supporters, let us resist the very difficult temptation to gloat over England's victory.
Let us be magnanimous in victory and say a short prayer for our fellow members:

Dear God, forgive our brothers and sisters who hate England for they do not know what they are missing. O Lord, help them to see the errors of their ways.Teach them to love England in their hearts and minds.
Teach them to profess their new found love from the mountain top. In their sleep and every waking hour, let the progress of the 3 Lions bring comfort and unbridled joy.
Amen.

England made Sweden look average.

Being drawn in Group G or H wouldn't have made any difference. We would still be the lowest ranked team in either group... plus our coach would transfer his cowardice unto his players. Telling them they are here to learn... :bored:

Watching these two poor sides play showed how lopsided the whole world cup draw was. To think this Swedish team are playing a Quarterfinal when the likes of Mexico, Argentina, Iran, Serbia, Japan, and even our own Super Eagles are back home shows how rigged the whole FIFA draw was from the start. The Referee and his linesmen were pro England all game and the Swedes didn’t help themselves with a cowardly approach to the game.

You guys are seeing what's not there due to your emotion.

England are NOT friends with FIFA. In fact, they absolutely hate the English and their shenanigans in always trying to expose FIFA as a corrupt organisation. And if we're talking about Russia as hosts, you already know the score there. England is not welcome.

I know some of you have serious comprehension problems. See Brazil topped the group followed by Switzerland. Now if the scenario I painted above have been different, Serbia not Switzerland would be second in that group and would have beaten this poor Sweden team in the Round of 16.

Do you still need more explanation???

And as regards the World Cup, I have not only watched all the matches so far, but I’m also part of the team providing data and reports for FIFA broadcast partners / rights holders in EMEA region.

Pickford isn't small for a GK....he's about 6 feet. Certainly not 6'4, but something like 6'1-6'2



My bad. He just looks small-framed.

I don’t agree with that. Forget FIFA rankings. Nigeria team was good enough even with Rohr’s cowardice as you call it. We lost to Argentina more because of their name and cos of Messi. We lost that game mentally even before we stepped on the pitch. If that last match was with any other regular European or South American teams, we would have beaten then like Iceland.

I can even say Iceland in Sweden’s place would have fared better. We got a terrible group and losing our first game eroded our confidence. Sadly, we couldn’t manage winning a must win game against Messi and co.

I'm not sure where this argument about recruiting from domestic league comes from, whats the comparison or benchmark. The option would only have some value if the domestic league was actually strong, the truth is that the talent we do create ends up being siphoned off.

Not true. Did you noticed how the Referees avoid checking VAR now that the non European teams have been taken out? Even for Brazil, the Referee refused to go see for himself. Today the Referee stopped the Swedish striker in his strides when he was onside. Why not allow them to finish the phase and then check VAR to see if he was offside or not? Scores was 0-0 then. But, he gave Sterling the benefit of a doubt later when he couldn’t score. This is not emotion, but facts. Little psych ops cheating refs use to intimidate teams they don’t like.

None of the 2 goals in today's victory were scored by Harry Kane. That is special.

If so, it’s a bloody war and only one winner...France, Deputy Igwe is the only team that can stop the runaway train. It’s amazing how far Southgate’s gone with this team shorn of world class players, Captain ‘Arry aside. The big calls have all been exact, Trippier over Walker, Pickford over Butland, Maguire over Cahill, 5 at the back ending the fruitlessly search for a left winger. England are on a roll, better that butter with bacon or Cumberland sausage. Ketchup, none less than Heinz.
