How did we not qualify? For the first time in my memory none of the Nigerian male and female teams are in the Olympics!! Disgusting. We can't throw stones at Zambia. Who knows? They probably thwacked us on the way there.

yes we can question the pathetic Zambian women team, they are rubbish mixed with trash. Nigeria not qualifying has nothing to do with this. CAF and their rubbish new format when it comes to qualifying for u17s, u20s, and female tourneys. the new Zonal qualification formats are rubbish.

What facilities are in place to prevent Zambia from being anything other than cannon fodder? No they’re not rubbish, they are the exact produce of the field that reared them.

Why cant CAF make the AWC the default qualifiers for the Olympics like it is for the World Cup??? Nigeria, Cameroon and even SA would put up a better show this.

Those foreheads from East and southern Africa want to send Africa back to the 1970s just so their useless teams play at the World Cup. :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse:

You mean we haven’t dominated the U17 World Cup like before?

Nothing ‘crazy’ or ‘unviable’ about that IMHO.
Then what should Brazil and Germany say at the senior level?
Or even Spain? :D

Not sure I get your response. I’m not talking about dominating, we haven’t even been able to make any tournaments it seems at youth level (U-13 to U-23). Just interesting…

2 issues. peakmilk isn't interested in developing the grassroot levels any more and CAF has a pathetic new format whereby the best teams do knock each other out. When you have Zambia playing Botswana to qualify, and the likes of Nigeria. ghana, CIV, Cameroon etc matching up against each other, then expect more of Kenya, eswathi etc repping the continent

They lost by 10 goals and scored 3. So they technically lost by 7 goals.
Nigeria lost by 7 unanswered goals to Ghana when Ohsee was in Seconday school (Umuahia DEB) .
Nobody asked how Nigeria qualified to play footie.

The "goalkeeping" (it does not deserve the name) in that match was absolutely shocking. I thought the Zambian GK committed an unforgivable error at this level, then a few minutes later the Dutch GK managed to equal her with an equally appalling error (and then compounded it by standing like a statue and not even bothering to run back to try and make up for the error - which the Zambian GK at least tried to do).

I echo the comments above and shudder to think how Nigeria did not qualify if Zambia represents the level of "opposition" in Africa.

Listen and listen very carefully. You can all go to hell.

How did we qualify? We qualified on merit.

It was obviously a learning curve for us but we will be back.

We are not about to be judged by unemployed youth from Houston.

Nonsense!
