SUPER EAGLES IN AMERICA - CE MEMBERS

Post by Ugbowo »

Despite everything, I am still a die hard SE fan. I, my friends and some of my soccer club members purchased tickets to the Dallas game today. About 20 total and we are trying to look forward to it. It helps that the Nigerian Texas Challenge Cup for amateur teams is in Dallas that same weekend so it's a perfect set up.


I spoke with Egbon Larry Ashagbe and he's a die hard as well. He plans to attend the games and is talking to the parents of some of our SE players to gauge interest.

It's always good to see CE Members.

Who dey show Dallas? Or is the NY/NJ game more convenient?

Since we had to cancel our trip to Qatar, man still has to watch the Super Eagles play! Insha allah, I will be in Dallas that day. Where is 1naija? I need a ride to Dallas from Houston in his Uber car. Hopefully , he isn't already booked?

God willing, I will be in the NJ game but not Dallas.

I might attend one of the games if they’re not using home-based players.

They will be using homebased.

I've seen one media already report an agreement for "A" teams.

We have 2 afcon qualifiers in June. You think they will go to America play 2 matches then fly back to play afcon qualifiers ?

Already lost interest.

Not so fast.

Players not involved in the ECL should be available. All leagues in Europe should be over. The concern will be assembling for first game v Mexico on May 30. Some will arrive late and participate only in the Ecuador game. Nevertheless it is likely that a far greater numer of players in the squad will be based in Europe. Note this will constitute the first games under a new manager and can influence players that the Manager shall use thereafter. Note the manager will have no other games before the two AFCON qualifiers that must take place before June 14.

If there’s a game in NJ (probably Metlife Stadium), I’ll definitely attend with my son. Who are we playing in NJ and when?

Just checked online, the friendly match (Nigeria Vs Ecuador) is on Thursday 2nd June 2022. Both teams will clash at the 25,000 –capacity Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey – home to Major League Soccer’s New York Red Bulls. Less than 25 miles from me, l’ll definitely make it. The match is currently not listed though.

It makes sense. In my view, the friendlies will be critical for each player given the fact that the games will be under the new technical crew.

Let me guess who the 2 starters are...

Awoniyi and Onyekuru? No offense to them, but let me know when real starters like Iwobi, Ndidi, Noble, Osimhen, and King Ekong indicate interest.

I don't think the friendly match between Nigeria and Ecuador on Thursday 2nd June 2022 is happening. A month before the match, tickets are not on sale online. Even the venue did not confirm the match. These NFF folks are something else :( :oops:.
