Not to burst your bubble but the game ended 5 nil several hours ago.

No, it isn't. More than half of today's starters were at the AYC...
Coach Paul has made the most changes where the AYC team needed it - in attack.

The US will NOT get the amount of possession they got today against Nigeria...

Impressive through ball for the 2nd goal. Iniesta would be proud of that ball.

You mean for the 3d goal?
The 2d goal was off a cutback.

ahidjo2,

Surprised. Was it not evident on the left, at the very least? In any case, watch and observe on Monday against the USA.

Talking a lot of smack. The USA is going to be tough opposition for Nigeria. They are welll capable of winning. Ditto for the Ukraine

I didn't see any Nigerian player with pace today. None

My thoughts on the game:

1. We dominated possession for long stretches of the game but often times play broke down in the final third. Looked like we lacked a player that could make the final through ball.It wasn't clear to me whether Effiong or Michael was playing the AM role and neither look like a natural AM.

2. Utin and Dele Bashiru were the most impressive to me. Utin overlapped and confidently beat his marker multiple times and assisted on 2 of the goals. He was also rarely beaten or caught out of position. Dele-Bashiru was confident going forward, broke up plays and finished nicely for his goal.

3. We gave Qatar a little too much space on occasion. Better teams like the US and Ukraine could punish us if we give them that much space.

4. Players like Utin, Tijani, Oremade, Offia, and Effiong look older than 20. That being said, it's hard to determine age just on looks. Akor is big but looks young.

5. Tijani our CF was underwhelming and looked a little clumsy when he had the ball. Akor was a little better. We will need a CF that can either hold up the ball or take on players against better teams.

6. Most importantly we won and took our chances. Let's see if we continue to improve as the tournament progresses.

Just 1 game


Emir,

Perhaps it is just one game for you. Ikuowen, more than any other player on this team, has been watched over and over. He was at WAFU with Eagles B, he was at the CHAN with Eagles B, he has been with Enyimba, he has been called up by Rohr. Thus, I do to know where you come up with just one game.

Didn't he also play against Atletico Madrid?

Interesting that no one addressed the fact that our boys were caught napping few times right after our corner kicks. I vividly remember one where the Qatari's had four players versus one defender but couldn't convert their chance. I do not think we can get away with those kind of errors against a team like the US or Ukraine.

Mistakes happen at youth competitions. The US also made several mistakes or were caught napping @Ekorian. It was a good first game for Nigeria. I am still waiting to see teams like France. New Zealand, Colombia and Nigeria are the top 3 teams I have seen so far.

Not just in youth competitions but in all football games. Football is a game of errors. No major sport accounts for as much error as football does.

Gotti,

I do not expect them to get "the amount of possession they got today." Instead, what I have stated above is that the USA will "give Nigeria problems with ball possession." I believe those two statements are different.

I have been impressed with the officiating in this tournament. It seems the introduction of VAR has forced refs to up their game and tamper their inherent bias which they used to have before.

This Ukraine team are very dangerous in the air. Its always been a big part of their game.
Good header and goal. Qatar need to throw caution into the wind now.
