Off the ground, studs showing. That's a red card

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

This is how you beat minnows. No small teams in Africa my nyash ..

The great Barry Switzer used to have the great Sooners beat weaker opponents by 50 - 60 points. One time, a reporter asked him why he ran up the scores on weaker team. He responded that those small teams expect OU to beat them and that they would be disappointed if they didn't get beaten as such. :rotf: :rotf: :rotf:

I think Cameroon are favorites to win this tournament, the only threats they will face will be Algeria, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, and Senegal

Scoreline is good for Cameroon but their defense is too shaky.

Didn't Algeria beat us 5 - 1in 1990?

Ethiopia remind me of South Africa in their style of play. Nice passing patterns but a severe lack of killer instinct

Well, i guess this no minnows mantra was premature. Ethopias defending was atrocious.

but let us hype Moses Simon who cannot complete a single key pass all game.

Ejuke as well needs to smarten the eff up.

That was efficient attacking. And let me no hear "na Ethiopia" because we had all the chances to do the same to Egypt but failed.

Yes they are, and that is why they are still in the world cup, while a superior (talent wise) CIV will be watching with that fraud of a coach.

Honestly I will say now, it is Cameroon who I want to avoid in world cup qualifying. They actually look pretty good and are a much more complete and solid team than Egypt or Ghana.

This team actually looks better than the one that won the AFCON in 2017. They are very well drilled and their attack looks coordinated. They can accurately CROSS THE BALL.

So can Aina, but Rohr prefer Shehu or Collins. Disgrace.

The Quality has been very high so far by all teams. No truly disappointing games or performances.
All those dissing the AFCON so far as boring dont know football. The first round of games, most teams showed significant defensive awareness tactical organization. Its continuing into the 2nd rounds. The goals will follow.

Really enjoying this AFCON.


Seriously?
Na I was clearly over excited. I should have waited for the 2nd half.
What a horrible, naïve defensive performance from Ethiopia. Its like the forgot football had 2 halves.
Good job from our plantain brothers to take care of business.

I wonder whether the quality pitches is a contributing factor.

No. We will go to the same NFL feeder teams they get their players from to get our players. Their days of beating up young students with NFL players are gone.
