OKOYE!!!!

This is the first game for Nigeria I have seen him look very confident. In his previous games, I used to get the JB-less Kongi syndrome ...shake .. any time the opponents were around our 18. But I did not shake once in this game because of the confidence he displayed.

Coaching matters..

With this, the goalkeeper peking order is..

1. Okoye
2. Akpeyi
3. Noble / Uzoho


BTW, how is Carl Ikeme? We should never forget him!!!

Okoye was on FaceTime with his girl in that game, but he's definitely growing as a player and leader, commanded his box very well

Sorry, I forgot it's mickie D's breakfast hour!

We'll chat on Sunday, but know you can't make up decades of JB-lessness in one week.

Carl Ikeme must be drafted to the Technical Team. I believe he will want to help Nigeria in which ever way he can.

He was nervous but that's understandable. His kicking was bad and a sure sign of nerves is when you jump or dive for a ball that is clearly going wide. Hopefully he is over hslis jitters.

I was most impressed by Aina.
End to end, full of running.
He’s so much better than a few years ago.
He’ll score in this tournament

He did get off FaceTime in time to make that huge save against Salah late in the game

Jumping or diving for the ball going wide was for the camera and of course a move to gain confidence on his part. I thought Okoye did well
