Chief, a billion dollar business, and a source of immense national pride and happiness, is not "only a game." Perhaps it is to you, but if most Africans think like this, it explains why our football is where it is. Ask the French what they have invested into creating the infrastructure for winning two World Cups and one Euro in 20 years. Ask Mbappe to describe the prodigious physical, temporal and mental investments it takes to become the best in the world. I assure you, whatever you do for a living in your life, it would not come anywhere close. It is not "only a game" my friend.
Finish and klaar. Very well said oga :clap: :clap: :thumbs:

his game got the French confused, he would have got more free kicks in dangerous positions, Southgate should have taken off Foden who was ineffective today, Saka was the danger man today

But yesterday you told us not to hold it against paredes (or whoever that Argentine player). You told us that when you are IN THE GAME, its different and we should accept stupidity because apparently, the pressure is too much for players to make sensible choices. I am surprised that you are exclaiming at Coman. You dont think a black player also feels pressure?


What has skin color got to do with it?

My point is unchanged though- that IN GAME, players can and do make poor decisions.
Its a game of errors not play station...

Its sometimes too easy to criticize as fans.. that is my point.

We watched this very boring video, 500 times, of Sacchi doing defensive drills, using sticks and without the ball, with Maldini, Baresi and Albertini.

My assessment too.
When you are done assessing, go and cry into your pillow. :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:
It’s only a game and I am not English, so I could not care less. People hear are so happy about France winning. I bet you have not set foot on French soil as [even a visiting] African. That is why I would rather they lose. But if they win, i just take it as a game. I see you are euphoric about the French win. Perhaps you put money on th outcome. If so, congratulations.
I think you meant the opposite. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


P.s-- No one hear is happy that the racist French won. And believe it or not, there are many well-to-do people on Cybereagles, who have travelled to more locations than you can ever dream of.

The SOLE issue here is the English, who are deeply hated! It doesnt matter who their opponent was today, even if it was Pontius Pilate and 10 Romans. Every true Nigeria feels peace when the English is in pains in football. :taunt: :taunt: :rotf:
I agree! I got the phrasing of the idiom mixed up. Thank you for the correction.

My issue is not where people on Cybereagles travel to— I could care less about that :D . How you feel about England pales into insignificance compared to how I feel about France, not least because of what they are doing in [English speaking] Cameroon. But I get it, given this is a Nigerian forum.

Of course they will support England. Remember England is their 'colonial' master, so the Americans were supporting their Masters.

Mmm....he did so well that Mbappe got past him in the tip tap movement that eventually resulted in Tchoumeni's bulala.

:sneaky:
Don't mind Coachito. :biggrin: :taunt: Let us not forget the time in the second half when Mbappe said to Walker, "You think you got speed? You wanna see speed? Catch me if you can." Whereupon Mbappe pulled the afterburner switch and left Walker not just in his dust, but light years behind. :lol: He then diagonally crossed the ball to Dembele, who had a clear shot at goal, and shot wide. :mad:
I loved that moment when Mbappe challenged Walker to a race.

Also, at times England had 3 men waiting to look after Mbappe and help Walker.
But the English being the English keep saying Walker did excellent coz Mbappe didn't score :biggrin:

Here you have the French admitting that the referee favored France. They say there were at least 3 flagrant fouls on Saka that the ref ignored, including one just before France’s first goal, a penalty on Harry Kane which was not given, and that he was 5 meters away from the second penalty and did not even give it.

Finally, they say Southgste made a mistake to take out Saka, and did not make substitutions early enough, especially that of Rashford.

The ref was annoyingly ABEG, but Ingurland still had their opportunities to tie the game and fluffed them…

Uncle Smallpikin,

Every person wey fear God has to be an ABEG member. If you're not a member, you got to check whether you have a conscience to whether it has been seared.

To be fair to the ref, he was rather too blatant. At the meeting the night before the match, we told him not to be too overt, but what's a child of God supposed to do, hide his righteous indignation ?

Southgate almost undid his good work with his substitutions. What was Sterling doing on the field while in form Rashford was still on the bench? Raheem just rolled off his bed at home 2 days before and just been thru a 12 hrs flight. He could say he needed some freshness in midfield but did he really have to take off Saka?? He was immense. Then came Mount, one of those players that looks busy but does nada. Got the penalty but dats more credit to the defender.

Foden another head scratcher. Maybe those guys were tired but Henderson, Saka and Foden did very well and England seemed worse after they left. Rashford came in too late, a guy that hit form just before the WC. Still early but these decisions may have cost him a top job. He did well with the environment around the team and selection.
