We need to stop patting ourselves on the back and move on.

Sudan will be very tough and Guinea Bissau even harder. Now is not the time to rest on our laurels. Coach Egu already posted his celebration on IG. I would hope he too is not getting carried away.
Us? fans? or you mean the players? Because whatever we (fans) do. Whether we move on or we refuse to move on and continue to twerk from now till 2066, it will have ZERO EFFECT ON HOW THE TEAM PERFORMS! ZERO! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I Often wonder why people do not like fans to enjoy anything, when it has ABSOLUTELY NO EFFECT on the team's performance. So, we should move on? when are we to enjoy our team? Are we supposed to continue to postpone excitement and happiness?
oboy the thing weak me oo, I wonder where ugbowo want us wey dey siddon in front of laptop dey post to move to? chei // we are fans, and all we can do is run our mouths on the internet.. the players and coaches are professionals

Come on. This match was dominant from start to finish, other than perhaps the last 10 minutes.

I have not seen us dominate an opponent of this quality for a long time. We manhandled them. Finishing and final decisions need to improve though.

On to the next match.
45 mins we hardly put a foot wrong and completely dominated. In the second half we gave up possession too easily with harried clearances and invited pressure. Egypt's formation and personnel changes threated us for a minute but not so much. The second half was not as crisp as the first. Great victory regardless but we need to shut it down and move on.

We didn't come to afcon just to beat Egypt.


The 2hf was expected as we would not be expected to keep the same intensity, but could've and should've managed the game more efficiently.

Lots of opportunities with better control to have severely punished Egypt...
A second goal would have killed them off and may have led to a third or fourth.

But the first half was job well done albeit helped by a cagey clueless at times, Egyptian team.
Ugbowo

It was not that Egypt was clueless. The reality is that they were outfoxed. In my view,. after watching Nigeria, Egypt did have a good plan but were definitely surprised. I believe with Salah's pace centrally against two central defenders that are challenged by pace, Egypt had a plan and it required getting the ball to Salah to run against the slow-footed central defenders. IT DID NOT WORK. It didn't work simply because not only did Nigerian attackers harass Egypt's back four preventing them from launching balls for Salah to run onto but also cut off the passing lanes by challenging every ball in the middle. Bottomline, Egypt had a plan but they were outfoxed.
I am actually in agreement with you. Their cluelessness was as a result of their one track plan not working. We maintained a lot of discipline and timed our pressing and counter pressing to perfection at times in the first half. But Egypt also gave us so much respect off the ball. I was actually in shock in how much time our centerbacks were given and how much space Kelechi was getting in receiving the ball and turning to run at goal. They backed off us in the first half no doubt. I think Queiroz showed us too much respect and we punished them.

Be that as it may, Sudan will be a different cup of tea. Beating Egypt does not guarantee three points against them. The technical crew should not rest as if the biggest challenge is over. It is just starting.

They had a plan alright. But I thought it was very elementary, one dimensional and yes, Nigeria did not let it work. And I agree, showed us too much respect...

The key thing for me was the trigger for the press and the discipline of the CMs, cus that's what Egypt was waiting for to spring Salah. Then the counterpress meant that opportunity for an Egyptian counter was very limited...

Form is temporary; Class is Permanent!
Liverpool, European Champions 2005.

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini. We used to think before then that if the other players are better, you have to lose. After that we learned anything is possible – you can beat better teams by using tactics." Jurgen Klopp

Sudan will be very tough and Guinea Bissau even harder. Now is not the time to rest on our laurels. Coach Egu already posted his celebration on IG. I would hope he too is not getting carried away.
Abeg relax... We as fans are in high spirits over a well earned victory because WE ARE FANS and its what we do. That doesn't mean we over the moon about anything just yet, I believe the players and coaching staffs are professionals and know enough that the battle is far from been won as they gear up for the next challenge
Sorry, it's coming from my coaching mind set. I've seen over celebrations derail teams. We need to act like this is business as usual.

KPOM.. borrowing from Kobe's lines.. the job is not finished yet.. I would like to remind naija fans about how carried away we were with our success during the group stage of the 1998 WC that we began to look beyond our next round opponents Denmark.. The Danes whopped us 4-1 and that was the end of our WC dreams.

I agree with the bolded, but it wasn't the entire 2nd half. More like the last 15 minutes.
Mr. Glass-Half-Empty, abeg enjoy the sweet victory ojare😃😃😃❗️

We gave up more possession in the second half because Okoye for some reason opted to blasting the ball out into the field each time, he didn’t do that in the first half.

We're not the players or the coaching staff. We're fans. Some people here are still celebrating beating Bulgaria in 94. My kids sing "Bebeto just day cry, when Nigeria beat Brazil" and they weren't even born until a decade later.

Its a wild world out there with lots to weigh people down. Let them dance and celebrate something joyful, especially, to your point, as it might not even last.
