We played welll today, but the fact is that the team is still evolving. We have not won any game convincingly. Even the players will agree. Fans should be allowed to be honest even when they support and celebrate with the team. Of course the insults are threats are not acceptable.

Before that Madagascar game, we had scored 2 goals in 2 games.

After that Madagascar game, we have scored 5 goals in 2 games.
Yes, losses matter, but it matters more the lessons you learn from them.

Against Iceland, Musa and Kelechi played centrally in a 3-5-2, Ighalo came off the bench.

Look at the goals Musa scored at the world cup, he was direct, 1st goal against Iceland in the box, his anticipation, the cool finishing, the ones against Argentina, running direct at defences, why is he wasted on the wings? That pace will get us free kicks, penalties, look at his acceleration, leaves defenders for dead, dont think we use him well

And you refuse to acknowledge where he ran from. Why do you folks like to massage the truth. The goals you mentioned where did he cut in from? If I remember Ighalo was the number 9 in the Iceland game and against Argentina we had a certain Ogna na chance as the striker, so he played also from the same position, wings. That you put a striker on the wings does not mean he is a winger... Is Sallah a winger, is Thierry Henry a winger? You won't even call Chukwueze a winger. We played 3 attackers.

I agree that this team is very much a work in progress. We are very far from our ceiling.
But the buttom line is that the FA, technical advisors and coaching staff have done a fabulous job of building a very solid foundation and core team for us to build on.

Keep this team and coach together, and in 2 years, we should be considered a favorite for the quarter finals or semis at the next world cup.

Ain't that sumtn? :?


I feel Madagascar will be knocked out by Tunisia, who will also knock out Senegal. Tunisia will make the final.

I am reasonably confident we can beat either Algeria or Civ.


I am calling it now. Nigeria vs Tunisia in the final.

The final will be between two teams that were at the 2018 worldcup. No two ways about it!

U have Onyekuru, Kalu, Moses, Oshimen on the bench change something....


This. Notwithstanding squeezing out today’s win, Rohr took a step back today. He was 10/10 for his management of the Cameroon game though. Here’s to hoping for consistent improvement from Rohr.

I said my preferred line up... haba...

As noted, we all know the line up will be

Musa****** Iwobi**** Etebo*****Simom

Aina*****Ekong ******Omerou***** Awaziem


*********** Akpeyi**********************

QED

There is no need to be posting preferred lineup. This is not fantasy football. Lets focus and be realistic. Lets discuss how Chief coach Rohr will line awon boys up tomorrow.


Robby which one... you don dey tense already. The boys will step it up tomorrow. We just have to be prepared for a battle.. The Bafana have improved but if we are up for it, we will shade it 2-1


Robby I no talk am :thumbs: :thumb:

I thought Musa ran the south African player ragged and cant understand why he was subbed

Yes he did a great job on the guy, but it became frustrating watching him do all the work and no end product. I was almost losing my mind watching him get to vantage position only to cross to no one... In essence he was doing nothing, the ball was ending in a less dangerous area from a dangerous position.

A coach has to do something to stop the madness, before everyone lose their minds from expectations that was never there. Haba almost tore all my hair out. He did well, but his final decisions were poor.



How about not starting Musa on the wings..


Don't get too caught up on positions. Look at the role too. He does play close to Ighalo sometimes...

His delivery is far too inconsistent. BUT...

There is also not enough effort on the other side of the ball to get up there for his delivery...



They need to work together in training. Ighalo can't seem to read what Musa will do. Ighalo should actually be in box 6 when Musa hits box 18. Brown Ideye was good at that. Check Ideye'sgoal against Mali in AFCON 2013 semi-final.


How about ighalo take off once he sees Musa turn on the afterburners rather than scratching his nyash 18 yds from the goal post. Others should feel free to support the play. The fact that you aren’t a striker doesn’t mean you can’t get in the box to support the wing play.

Ighalo is so slow in getting into the box to connect those dangerous passes and crosses the likes of Samu and Musa were providing for him... I don't what it is with this anticipation, or maybe he's wary of been caught in offside positions? there was a good pass Chukwueze gave him across the face of goal, if Ighalo had kept up the pace enough, he would have connected that pass for an easy goal as the SA goal keeper was well beaten... he needs to improve more in that area.

Musa is most effective playing central but Rohr is sold on his experience hence why he accommodates him playing on the wings. He simply needs to start him on the bench and rotate him with Ighalo..

Rohr is yet to perfect the fluidity of our transition play in the final third. However, he sets up his team in a particular way and knows the player Who can best interpret it.

It was a comfortable win though even if not convincing enough.

I'm not sure this was a game suited to Ighalo's strengths.
Ighalo is a bruiser so don't expect that from him. He's much more effective against physical defenders. Musa and Chukwueze are at too fast for him when playing on the break.

This is why I felt Rohr screwed up not trying out Onyekuru and/or Osimhen against Madagascar. Musa playing up the middle with Onyekuru wide left and them switching intermittently might be a better option when pace is required. Also, one of Etebo and Ndidi (possibly the former cos he's faster) should support our fast break plays along with Iwobi.

That's the counter attacking half sets that the team should work on.

I think Ighalo should play alongside a support striker to profit off his hold up play as knockdowns (the way Siasia then later Amokachi successfully played beside Yekini). This means either of Musa or Chukwueze should give way for Osimhen, or Onyekuru. My pick would be Musa cos his runs aren't converting to legit goal scoring opportunities anyways. And with Collins playing at LB, I feel we can risk pulling Musa without losing much offensively or defensively. Same cannot be said of the right side. Awaziem provides nothing offensively so removing Sumu could be counterproductive.

I would've suggested Etebo but the double pivot seems to work well for us shielding our shaky goalie, and I believe it's the reason for our did defence all tourney.
