Eniola has been talking rubbish about Cameroon on fox to please her employers so she could get paid. She is put on the show for window dressing obviously since she can’t take a stand

ALUKO'S COMMENTS VERY DISAPPOINTING


A few years ago, this lady was involved in a lawsuit claiming discriminatory treatment based on her race. As expected, she received wide support by posters on this site. So it is painful to see her stance in this Cameroon/England brouhaha. I don't know the young lady, I'm not an expert on the environment in which she operates or even if she's merely motivated to be quite honest.

But to hear her speak, claiming gratuitously that she's a big supporter of African women's soccer and totally embracing Neville's comments made me wonder about her. She suggested that young African girls watching the performance of the Cameroonian girls would be embarrassed failing to understand their embarrassment would come from the way the match was officiated.

And one of her worst statements was the one suggesting that Johnson, a Cameroon player who grew up in the US would be embarrassed by the conduct was one of the worst, unless she had evidence of this. It implied because she was raised in the US she would see things differently but those raised in Cameroon were too backward to understand this. If I wasn't viewing this on tv, I might have thought she was just another white commentator.

If the idea behind bringing here was to see things from a different perspective without being dishonest, it was a total failure. She thought her role was to be perfectly aligned with the others to avoid disunity. It was very disappointing.

exactly what I said after the farcical VAR penalty-retake decision in Nig vs France. We are seeing come to pass with Cameroun's women's team.

Definitely her erroneous projection on how Johnson who grew up in America would be embarrassed is nothing short of stepping over the boundary. I waiting for Johnson to come out and rebuke those statements in the strongest words possible

Rules Ke!!! Tell that to the dogs. America is a perfect example of where same rules applicable to all have been interpreted and applied unfairly to incarcerate minorities

I couldn’t believe my ears when she used “naive” to describe Nigeria’s team play against the German corner. Talk about playing into a stereotype.

...guys learn to just watch the match and ignore the commentary.
I never pay attention to American Fox sport personalities commentary on football, our football, because they talk about it like their own football.
When actual kicking stops and they break for halftime, that's my bathroom break too, errands and refreshments, or change channel to something else till football kicking is back.

Yeah, I hear you. But how does ignoring make it better? Let me state an example with racism. Most whites who are racist were not born when racism was in full blow, but because of what they were taught, it still exist.. If we don't Nick it in the butt, in centuries to come we will still be facing this.

To say i was disappointed in her comments is putting it lightly. There was the other Jamo pro analyst that did nothing but hype their squad while she was talking. She made absolutely sure to point out their achievements and the serious challenges\ battle they've faced to get to the WC and how certain bad calls by ref could set the tone of the game.

Its only when one of our own gets an opportunity to advocate for the African squad that she goes house negro on us. Tufiakwa... :arrow: :arrow: :arrow:

Ignore the fox commentary ( besides other biased punters) and after 90 minutes, use your imagination to evaluate if we have performed well enough to stay in this type of company, what we need to ask ourselves is how can we stress to the different African football bodies to improve the fortunes of African football, just the same way we as professionals excel in white collar jobs despite the bias and discrimination, we need to extend this to sports, the only way for us to gain respect is by coming into these tournaments are beating these highly fancied teams silly, the Nigerian 1994 super eagles proved to the world our football was world class at least and were ranked 5th in the world, also the 1996 Olympics football title as well, they respected Nigeria football!, when we beat Spain in the 1998 world, our respect was at an all time high!

when the NFF are trying to cheat the girls out of their allowances and what not, barricade themselves in the hotel, that in itself is a disgrace, how can these ladies give their 100% in such circumstances? they know for all their efforts, they might not even get paid

its sad and pathetic!

You would think that after all she's been through, she will have more sense. She's probably trying hard to get back into the good books of the British networks after they all ignored her for commentary and analysis duties during the WWC.

The Jamo Canadian analyst is the worst. I remember her complaining about Jamaica getting the bad calls vs Italy but when African teams get screwed she parrots Lalas talking points. Aluko on the other hand has been a dissapontment. I can see why she chose to play for England instead of Nigeria.

Rachel Yankee was more objective was even commending the Camerounian girls for finishing the game.

Even the head of women football in Africa was disgusted by their behaviour! It was just one strange game really, VAR Has messed up this tournament, Women Football in Africa has to improve or they will continue to go there to make up the numbers

I thought she and especially the Jamo Canadian have been cool to have on for diversity. Eniola seems unsure of herself though compared to the Jamo lady.
