I shake my head because there are many here who will not only disagree with what you have written but will actually accuse you of not loving your country.

Yeah I think so, but it's pointless criticizing Klinsmann's selection at this point. They made it out of a group with Portugal, Germany and Ghana when they were written out after the draw.

Last time I saw a player score with the same technique of Green, was Isaac Success.

And where is he?

Waiting until he goes thru the U-20, U-23, etc, becomes a grandpa, then he can come in run aimlessly like Uchebo, complete with dreads!

Football is a team game. One primadonna more or less would not have made much difference, especially someone who took a leave of absence from the national team.

They are proud of their team let them be, ah!

Go to Big Soccer Forum and see how disappointed they are.

Here Cellular is celebrating that we gave France a tough game!

I mean what kind of deep seated inferiority is that!

The difference is that everybody knows that Belgium has superior talent. All the USA could do was try their best to level the playing field against superior talent, and Howard was key to that. If Nigeria faced a superior opponent but gave everything and fought to the end, I would be satisfied with the team.


And what did Nigeria do yesterday? Was France not a clearly superior team than Nigeria?... I am just calling out Nigerians who always so quick to find faults with everything Nigerian and throwing out the baby with the bath waters but are suddenly very well measured and level headed in their assessment of this game...

Too many injuries. We just couldn't be at our best. A few missing pieces of the puzzle as well.

But...you better believe we'll be back in 2018...much stronger and better.

Mark it!

Cheers, Mate

every team is dealing with injuries
...that you can take to the bank. Injury to key player is a game changer.



Altidore would have made the difference. I absolutely believe it would have been him on the end of those chances that the likes of Cameron missed.

We'll be back. We'll still have the same strength, speed, and stamina. Just as much mental willpower. Only in 2018, we'll have even more talent.
Fine. The new Joe Montana's and Lebron James are taking up football. Real football!

Watch out world. There's a new sheriff in town...one you're already familiar with in other domains of life.

We'll be back!!!

:wink: :wink: :wink:

8-) 8-) 8-)

Cheers, Mate


That you can take to the bank. Meanwhile, some countries will still be struggling with the basics such as completing a pass, ball control, taking and defending corner-kicks, taking and defending free-kicks, etc

Kudos so USA.. the belgians were just the better side.. I like that U.S RB.. was caught out of position, but going forward, he was a threat.... this game showed the good and bad of bradley.. howard was on beast mode, but you can only try for so long. ..

As for Belgium, they will have to revisit what happened after green's goal.. just look lost defensively and just about hanging in there....
Solid world cup so far.. 6 of the 8 rd of 16 games went into 30 mins OT..

Exactly, Belgium were using Tim Howard for shooting practice in preparation for the match against Argentina. They had fifteen shots on target while the All powerful USA could only manage four. If that was Nigeria I would be embarrassed. The US tried, can't fault them for effort, but in the end the better team progressed.

I...am....WOUNNNNNDED!!!

WOUNDED!!!

:veryangry: :veryangry: :veryangry:

:sad: :sad: :sad:

All my teams are out: USA, Croatia, and Nigeria.

I don't know what to do with myself the rest of the WC. Everything is silent. My wife and kids and colleagues make sounds. But I hear nothing. A lot is going on around me. But I see nothing.

It's all a silent blur now. I look at joyous German, Argentine, German, and Belgian fans. Worst of all, I have to endure the odd Frenchman.

I am lost my brothers.

Truly I am wounded.

Cheers, Mate

Story ! Story !! Story !!! I am very sure that even if Nigeria came with the world cup with Marathon and long distance runners masquerading as football players and Belgium goes ahead to pepper our goal post all game long.. we will get a different tune from you all.....In fact, we will hear phrasing like this " Football is more than been able to run all game long and having endurance it is about been able to have the technical skills and creative skills to both defend and shoot".

dude, why are you getting worked up. I'm just reading the match reports in the papers and the narrative they're crafting does not match what I witnessed with my two eyes and that's all I'm saying. Where's does hatred and Nigerian media come in here
