Re: Nigeria v KSA. Starting lineup and game thread

Saudi player who was credited for the equalizer is ironically of Nigerian origin. His last name Kanno is a reference to his origins in Kano, Nigeria.

Re: Morocco Appreciation

:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: Morocco have shown us that: 1. Sustained investment in logistics and infrastructure works. 2. A “ local ” coach can get the job done. But how many of these players actually started their carreer in Morocco? You should give some credits to the european countries where mos...

Re: Can Morocco maintain its success?

Morocco, imho , is the best African team ever at the WC but can they maintain their success by getting better and winning Afcon? After the WC they'll undoubtedly be the No 1 team in Africa by a long shot. They'll be a super team that's never seen before in Africa, a WC semifinalist. A elite team in...

Re: I am just going to be honest, I will support France over Morocco

Moroccans have multiple identities Arab, Amazigh, and of course African. Nothing wrong with that. Very few Moroccans I know deny that they are African. They are receiving a lot of support from the locals in Qatar because they identify as Arab as well, but I dont see anything wrong with that. It woul...

Re: Watch The Gambia Choke against Cameroon

How did Comoros choke? They were down one man for almost the entire 90 minutes and evenly matched Cameroon. This despite the fact you forced them to play without a keeper, based on invented quarantine rules. Now please let us enjoy a good quarterfinal, no "special" COVID tests for the Gamb...

Re: Guinea Gambia Thread

Where was this sense of urgency from Guinea before the goal? Maddening that teams treat a knockout stage game as if it’s a group stage tie.

Nice tempo so far. I tip Gambia to advance, they’re the Cinderella of this tournament. I'm supporting Gambia in this tournament, I always love an underdog story and that's why I supported Zambia in 2012 when they pulled the perfect Cinderella story by winning that tournament. Me too for the same re...

Re: Musa leaves Leicester camp and heads to Saudi Arabia

If anything, Gyan's form for Ghana *improved* after he moved to the UAE ( a much weaker league). A World Cup semifinalist and third place finisher (Belgium) had two starters who played in another weaker league than Saudi as well (Witsel and Carrasco). Check out the Chinese clubs results in the Asia...

Neymar is an attention whore. What is he crying for? I was expecting him to be jumping and smiling instead It is relief, they were minutes away from the worst start to a World Cup in Brazilian history. Losing in the QF/SF is one thing, but a group stage exit would diabolical. He clearly was relieve...
