It was a good result but disappointing performance. The pitch is not the reason why we didn't score more but rather the lack of organization upfront. Simple passes didn't get completed to open their defense and there were errant shots off target. Against Libya we have to do better. How did we lose against South Africa in the first place at home???

Egbon let us cut them some slacks. The pitch is horrible. Lest we forget how we used to struggle against the likes of Lesotho, Mozambique and Ethiopia.

Okay I don hear. I know the pitch is bad....the stuff I am complaining about goes beyond the pitch. Look at the nonsense freekick botch up between and Onazi and Etebo....that has nothing to do with the pitch but lack of professionalism and Balogun told him off



i agree 100%

Most certainly the pitch is part of it. But I agree, our movement in the final third lacked any cutting edge, and continued a pattern with Rohr of taking few chances with MF runners in the box.

But the pitch was most certainly a big part of it...

The pitch was 90% of the problem. Yes, it was THAT bad. Nice result for the lads.

Happy with three points. But again I’m left hoping that we qualify. We have a poor team of average players with zero tactical astuteness. I’m not even sure what we can do about it.

Care to expand on your astute observation?

Granted, the poor condition of the pitch was detrimental to us playing good football, but...
Rohr insisting on playing Mrs. Ighalo also played a part here. He simply was mediocre up front.
Also, Onazi in the middle not being able to execute basic passes was highly disappointing.

The result could have been a lot better if Rohr had addressed those two decisions earlier on in the game.

Job done. This is not about anything else. Just get the 3 points.

We scored three goals, one, a PK by Ighalo. He moved well upfront, linked well with the wide players.

Could he have done more? Absolutely! But your criticism cannot be based on the game we just watched. We got three goals on the road without conceding any. Do you guys think this is cricket?

Save for a few minutes in 2HF, we largely controlled this game, sometimes too easily...largely b/c of Onazi and Ndidi.

I mean this is criticism by rote or jaundiced memory!

My criticism is based on a culmination of his mediocre body of work. 1st goal in like 30 yrs (being sarcastic) BUT his overall output as a striker is absolutely POOR! I believe Rohr could have played a more dynamic and quicker front line (perhaps Onyekuru, Musa and Kalu OR Musa, Simy and Kalu) and we definately would have gotten a better result (more goals). Why Rohr keeps on wanting to accomodate this useless striker is beyond me.

Ighalo needs to make way for more productive strikers in the works. They need to be prepared for the next competitions (Nations Cup, Olympics and World Cup). Can't continue to rely on a bloody useless chap whose only goals come thru penalties (see how he quickly rushed to grab the ball when Kalu was felled in the Seychellian box? What a loser!)

Watched the first half. Seychelles is terrible. Decent performance. Can't really rate the team against such a poor team.. But overall an okay performance.

We need a striker. Ighalo has served his country well but time to step aside.

I agree.

My problem is that anytime he touches the ball, he must do skills. To Control ball he would throw skii, to pass, he would throw skii, to chest sef na skii. I hope we dont have another JayJay on our hands. :atc:

We played well overall. Could have been 5-0 if not for some unfortunate luck.

Why not go a step further and say that the Comoros player could walk into starting 11 of Real, Barca or Chelsea

South Africa and Libya drop points. Good result for Nigeria. Just need 4 points in October to qualify. Get a draw or win in South Africa and beat Seychelles in Nigeria
