Great to see Se back to our usual playing style, Garba Lawal wins the ball and passes 2 meters to Oga who finds Yak with a no look pass

Kai, football is definitely a young folks' game. See stomach everywhere.
I really miss the SE. Of old!!

Watching the game yesterday brought back good memories. Especially when Taribo West, Uche Okechukwu and Celestine Babayaro were all on the pitch together at some point during the game as a back 3. Also, Garba Lawal seemed to play every position yesterday. Same ol same ol I guess. It was lovely.


No joke. Seeing all those boys, and their trademark habits. Who can forget how Taribo raises his hands like a chicken so the referee doesn't call a foul.....Uche on his own playing a stabilizing role in defense...still telling West how to position himself and all. Rufai...looking the same, and from the looks of that first Chinese goal, he brought the good and the bad Rufai we had grown used to seeing. The Bull being The Bull...Cele trying to rove up and down as usual. Jay Jay couldn't let a game go by without his trademark step over, and no look passes.

Chei, reminds me of a time the SE were downright fun to watch.

The only players that didn't really look themselves were Aghahowa and maybe Emma Okocha.

Amo was a beast whenever he put on the GWG. I am sure he must have shed a tear or two putting that shirt on again..

Yeah...wouldn't be surprising. There are a few players I can remember that treated that green jersey as a call to war. Amo ranks high up there. He played out of his skin for Nigeria

What of the formation? 3-2-0, 2-1-2 or 2-2-1? :)

Rufai will have more work to do than he had against China. Considering the squad (and the unlikelihood of Oloye storming the camp), we may need to deploy Amokachi as the main central defender .... his ruthless tackling would intimidate the retired Brazilians (and he seems fitter than our defenders).

:lol: :lol:

Unlike the Chinese, I expect the Italians and the Brazilians to take goal-bound shots from far and wide. I saw the lone Italian goal vs. Brazil yesterday, and I was in awe....so we better close them down quick. Both us and the Chinese were trying extremely pass happy with goal scoring...I'd like us to try start taking shots from near midfield and testing the keeper's concentration too.

On Amo...though I don't like to criticize The Bull...he was clearly at fault for the 2nd Chinese goal. So, lets not make him central D abeg.

You are forgetting that Brazilians play futsal for fun. This is their bread and butter. Although, to be fair, we play "choosing" and yet, we still yeye. :lol:
