Quit comparing chalk with cheese...

Assembling players who have never played together before and, with barely ONE DAY of practice, playing a competitive away game is nowhere near anything that Rohr has ever faced with the SE.

Are you minding him?

This is actually more on the NFF, including Rohr who is as dumb as rocks. A smarter & more hardworking coach would have known that the same team (for the most part) should have played the 3 matches coming up.

2 teams made sense if both games were on the weekend, but once it was clear that this game was on a Wednesday, then the likes of Uzoho, Ndidi, Ebuehi, Onyekuru, Osimhen, Iwobi, Ajayi (excuse me if any of the above is not eligible for U-23) should have been the core of this team, and flown directly to Tunis.

The 5-6 over 23 guys the German wants to see over the weekend could have flown directly to Nigeria to wait for them

After taking care of business, they fly to Nigeria for the Academic games coming up.

I wonder how many other Olymoic qualifiers were played today.

Sometime, I feel like borrowing the famous term from Chairman Cellular, but I won't. Not that John 12 doesn't deserve it though.

Lmao see me see trouble! Now, you’re blaming rohr for not releasing his first team players for an upcoming u23 game. Chai! I cant come and kill myself and I have heard it all. Do you think players are machine? Trust me, rohr would had defeated this Libya team with the same squad I remember him defeating Zambia at Lusaka

With a team that had already played against Tanzania at home the previous month...

Furthermore, the squad that Rohr inherited even before the Tanzania game had already played several games together (there was NOT a single debutant in the Zambia game). In contrast, in this instance, we are not discussing a new coach but players who have NEVER played together. Chalk and Cheese!

Let me break it down for you.

About half of the players we have used from the time the WC started are U-23.

We have 3 games in a week. One is a friendly, one is effectively meaningless, and one is an Olympic qualifier.

A little bit of thinking & scheduling would have ensured we filed out today with something close to our National team, & not one with players who may have never met each other before yesterday.

Its an opinion which you are entitled to.
The explanation wasn't needed cos it was clear what you were thinking.
However, your suggestion really get as e be. :idea:

You'll be over stretching them by putting them in SE games and Olympics rubbish. The problem lies in the qualification format not the NFF's decisions. Olympic representatives should simply be the teams that finished top three at the U20 tournament the year before.

This was an administrative and planning blunder.
Nothing more.

Hopefully, we can pull it out of the bag, but the guys in the office blew this one.

What are you talking about?

The 2 other games are the light ones, & you have a large enough squad to ensure that no one plays more than 2 games.

This was the only competitive game that mattered in this stretch. You have to put the best team forward, not one where players have never met each other.

Bros, don't be too sure. Rohr had a team of foreign-based players and collapsed at home 0-2 to a largely home-based South African team. It was clear that the Nigerian team did possibly 70% of what is required in this game against Libya and dominated possession. Unfortunately, lack of ideas in the attacking area was a huge disappointment and Libya broke out two times to score undeservedly. I have no doubt that Nigeria will dominate Monday in Asaba. The big question, however, is do they have enough time to solve the problem in the scoring area because Libya will be far more committed to defense that they did in Tunisia.

Didn't watch the game. A question I have is who played as our AM during the game, and how the AM fared? From the list of midfielders invited it looked like Nwakali would probably play in that position. However, I'm not sure that is even his best position. I wonder if he would be better as a CM/DM as opposed to playing as an AM. He has also been used mainly on the wings since he went to Europe.

This sounds like a tricky second leg. It takes a well-organised team to break any side which chooses to park the bus. Historically, U-23 coaches usually use home-based players to execute the qualifying games and strengthen with pros after qualification. This, however, is different. 24 hours and only one training session? That's a stretch.

The video is on the FB link, so you should try to watch it...

Only saw the second-half, and by then we were down to 10 players, but it was difficult to tell what formation we were playing (or that we started with), with Azubuike and Nwakali both seeming to be playing more centrally in central-midfield than in more traditional defensive and attacking roles - with each alternatively holding and/or creating as the situation dictated.

I can't believe what I'm reading here. :shock:

So are you saying we should have put a makeshift team together of established SE players because we don't have an U23 team?? :? Even if you could get them to play this qualifier, these players would not be available for the rest of the qualifiers. It means you have no team to prosecute the qualifiers. What has the U23 coach been doing all this time?

Moreover, it is highly unlikely that players who have performed at the highest level in senior football, i.e. played at the World Cup, would be motivated to want to fly from their clubs all the way from Europe for an Olympics qualifier. Jeez, many of them would even pass up the opportunity to play at the Olympics itself (if we do qualify), talkless of a qualifier in Tunisia.

The players I see listed for the qualifier are as good as other successful U23 sides we've had. The likes of Nwakali are more accomplished than the players Siasia had in his qualifiers 4 years ago. So this is not about the quality of the players but the lack of preparation.

Thanks for posting this video. From what I saw here, it wasn't as bad a performance as I expected based on the result. For a team of players who had never played together before they actually didn't do too bad. I'm confident thst with a few training sessions together, we should be able to win the return leg. Can we score 3 goals? That's the question.

Senior Uncle, what term might that be?

Ps., the result is an appropriate one. We assemble players, and do line-up like we dey CE... and expect to beat a TEAM who have been playing together? :roll:

Thank you Orion, was just about to say the same thing....this is like the Nigerian elections....u don’t prepare and expect to win?

This team coaches knows (I assume) a month ago that the pros won’t be released on time to fully prepare for the match. So why invite them? He saw them in training and saw that they cannot play together. So why not go for a more pragmatic defensive line-up and leave Libya with a draw or 1-0 lose.

This rubbish is on the coaches and on Nigerians as a whole. Who appointed a coach with no plan or manifesto? Come on....how long will Nigerians keep defending rubbish....

The coaching was poor and ill-prepared, so they quite rightly lost.
