Cameroun lost by 4-2 to Egypt last night. I only watched the second half, and I must say Kamaru did not deserve to lose by that margin. They have a good team, and play aggresively and cohesively. The usual Kamaru style! I'm not ruling them out yet.

As for Nigeria, I'm not really surprised we lost. That squad isn't worth much.

This is sudan's first Nation cup in 36 years.
Their goalkeeper was good i heard.

Zambia is not a team to rule out too.

BKG ni dai i was disappointed with kamaru. Ni fa su na bawa cup din amman after yesterdays match ina ga zan canza sheka.
They kept playing long balls which couldn't just yield.The eyptians took advantage of the wide spacing and scored easily.Coach din kuma didn't make any effort to change the style of play....shi ma ga alama wani Onigbinde ne.....ko tashi baya yi ya yiwa yan wasan magana.


Nigeria dai dama ina supporting din ta ne don Gida ce amman team din does not look good.

So you watch football? Very interesting. I like it. I haven't watched the Zambia match. So Oliseh was the commentator?

Don't blame cameruon for the long balls. If you recall, Egypt did not actually put them under pressure. They just scored some fantastic goals from long-range efforts. I'm actuallu suprised some of those shots went in, especially the fourth goal, bcos Kameni is a very good 'keeper. After that Egypt closed shop and resort to counter-attacks. So Kamaru had no option but use long balls, after their efforts to breakdown the Egyp defense failed.

Hajia, as long as subjectivity is being used in team and crew selection, Nigeria would continue to disappoint. What most Nigerians fail to realise s that name alone does not play football. We're still living in our '90s glory.

Amira, how do you see the Guinea match? Not bad, huh? It was a very vital win for the, though at the end their captain was so so stupid to get himself sent-off. We will see how they're gonna cope without him in their final group match, cos he's the heart of team.

They keep playing one monotonous marshal music in an effort to cheer the team p. I say that is nonsense.

LOL  ;D ;D That's too easy an excuse for naija's poor performance. But know what? Wallahi ni ma I've been complaining about those supporters club. Tun da na san su shekara da shekaru irin busa daya suke yi. Too monotonuos for my liking.

ps - See how Cameroun came back strongly and drubbed Zambia. I like those guys.

Well naija just needs ivory coast to do well against mali and they also need to batter benin then maybe they'll get somewhere.

Yeah. Maaaaybe ;D But I doubt it. I think Mali would get the point they need against Cote d Voire to qualify. I can see Cote d Voire resting key players, seeing as they've already qualified, while Mali would give it thier all. Lets face it, Nigeria does not deserve to qualify. It is a poor team, playing poorly. This I expected even before the tournament kicks off.

Who has time to grief for naija, abeg make them clear way jare. Honestly I cant be bothered anymore, Go get urselves some midfielders, wait another term. Go Manucho, Go Manucho, Go red devil Manucho. See pesin wey dey score any any how. tsk tsk tsk.
I think Tunisia are doing well, Egypt, Angola and morroco too maybe. I look forward to seeing them get somewhere. Tunisia and Egypt, now thats something. Go Manucho, Go Manucho, Go red devil Manucho

I agree with u ibro. I dont know why we waste our breath over these nigerian footballers of ours.. no iota of patriotism in their blood and they dont know just how much they are hurting their own image first, before nigerias.

Hajiya Husnaa and BKG,

Ai Nigerian Super Eagles are like virus in our blood stream. Though I wholly agree with you Husnaa that most of them lack patriotism yet we or I, in particular, find it very hard to stop supporting them, wallahi. But this time around I promise that if they fail to come out of zone...inshaAllah.

Muhsin don't let someone force you from doing what your mind wants.

In my own case,i always say it out that i don't support Nigeria but yet when they are playing i expect a lot from them.
Lemme tell you,whenever Nigeria is playing i shiver ko ba sanyi ake ba saboda tension.
I cannot supress my love for my motherland....simple.
If they win i rejoice,if they fail i mourn and start supporting another team.

Finally Nigeria has qualified for the quarter finals of the nations cup.
They thrashed Benin 2-0 while cote d'ivorie thrashed Mali 3-0.
Nigeria's goals came from Mikel Obi and Yakubu Aiyegbeni (Yakubu's goal was supplied by Mikel)

Had Nigeria been ousted at the first stage CAF would have lost a lot of money in terms of TV broadcast revenue,so also will the sponsors,MTN.

Now Nigeria will face Ghana in the toughest match predicted in the Nations cup.
The statistics favour Nigeria over Ghana. Nigeria almost always beats Ghana in tournaments and draw with them in friendlies and qualifying matches.
Amma here is where the matsala is:Ghana is playing at home sannan kuma the crowd tirnout will not be very high with Ghana out of the tourney.....so CAF has a problem.

You sound as there is likely a problem, Gogannaka. Are you afraid or they (Ghana) would be favoured and win over Eagles? Am not precisely afriad of that because I know Nigeria has all that can stand to avoid such happening.

And lastly, I wish us more lucks and winnings in the next games. Allah ya bamu sa'a, amin.

Post by: Ibro2g on January 30, 2008, 12:02:28 PM
Patriotism aside, Do u guys honestly think we can beat Ghana now? Muhsin what is it that Nigeria has that is "what it takes". Professionally, Ghana has better defence and midfield than we do at the moment. The likes of essien and Muntari cannot be compared to olofinjana. We only have better strikers, and we all know they cant do much alone.

I do hope we beat them but we must not write off Ghana like this is a walk through, our history with them counts for nothing at the moment, afterall they went to the world cup which we couldn't qualify, now thy've won all three matches and we needed a favour from a rival to qualify. Ghana are no pushovers and we can only hope and pray not talk in thier face. Hope and Pray

And Gogannaka you are right, home turf, fans, CAF, Money....there is too much at stake. I wont be suprised if they are favoured against us.

May safety and peace be with u

So the Supper Eagles had managed to qualify through the back door. ;D Or rather Cote d Voire "qualified" them!  Amma dai Mali sakarkaru ne. Sun bani kunya. Personally I don't give a hoot about the Eagles. I hope Ghana send them out. Last time I cared about them was 1992. A lokacin ne nake karkarwar sanyi in Najeriya na wasa kamar goga ;D Yanzu ba ruwa na. However I do support the age-group national teams  - U-17, U-21, U-23 - sosai sosai.

Why is it sad? It is to be expected. Now, Ghana is not that fantastic or solid, but they went on and beat nigeria with ten men, after the red card!  It goes to show how useless that nigerian team is.
Title: Re: African nations cup (Nigerian Squad)
Post by: Muhsin on February 04, 2008, 12:47:21 PM
Following Bakan~Gizo's words, I now wholly believe with one of my friends's calculation about that game between Super Eagles and Black Stars. He (BKG) was flatly announcing :ten men...!!!" Hmm...thats what they wanna hear Nigerian saying, am teeling you, big bro.

That friend of mine gathered a certain data as; really Africans are under-developed. I asked why? He answered; instead of whats use in in Europe and other world as "home advantage" thats given to host country of a competition, we use another term as "home winning", instead. And no Nigerian would be listen to if he/she complains about that because we were given penelty and one of their player was sent out.

Eventually or rather really, if you take a close look at how the game was played, you could understand that what that guy said is on track. We were denied many throw-ins, corners, fouls and so on, which these ravagely affected our players and be afraid of making any good move to play freely.

But any way, thats how any game is; their must be a winner and a loser. So we're the losers yesterday. No problem. But I won't blame our players. They absolutely played a very good and nice game. Keep it up Eagles. Some day, I hope and pray, you'll fly back with even World Cup!

Post by: gogannaka on February 04, 2008, 01:23:34 PM
A friend of mine when i told him it was a shame having to loose a game when your opponent was 1 man down.
He said that its a lie, the referee played for Ghana,just that he didn't wear their jersey  ;D

ya dan mana fasha gaskiya...that last minute free kick we got,i saw a penalty here.

I would advise glo to fire Bertie right away.
The NFA should form a Nigerian team whose main task will be to play for the country.
Yadda kowa zai tafi office da safe su ma haka za su tafi training da safe.
Sannan kuma they won't be allowed to play for any club, their club will only be super eagles and they will be paid good salary and allowances.
Pay rise will be strictly on performance.
That way they won't go to any tournament and be eager to return to their various clubs in europe thus playing foolishly.

Title: Re: African nations cup (Nigerian Squad)
Post by: bakangizo on February 05, 2008, 03:14:36 PM
Yeah, the usual Nigerian/African excuse: the ref didn't favour us. C'mon, get on with it ;D It was a weak team Nigeria sent out there. The ref did not, repeat did not, unduly favour Ghana. So he gives them those little throw-ins and fouls. You guys forgot that at the end of the day, the BIG decisions of the day went to Nigeria. He gave us a penalty (after refusing to award Ghana one, when Shittu fell and handled the ball in the box), and gave them a red card! I know for a fact if the reverse was the case, and Ghana was awarded a penalty and Nigeria given a red card, Nigerians would say the ref was partial, irrespecive of the correctness of the decision. Let me also add that if Ghana had lost, the ghanians would've said the ref favoured Nigeria bcos of the pen and red card.

Post by: lionger on February 13, 2008, 02:35:06 PM
I had personally hoped for an Ivory Coast triumph. Egypt, though, was easily the best football team in this ANC, and this was obvious from day one. Anything short of an Egypt victory (or at least that of the Ivory Coast), would have been a travesty for the neutral football fan.

As for Nigeria, we were rubbish, and predictably so. Before the ANC I felt that Nigeria's regression in midfield talent, coupled with the usual shoddy preparation for the tourney, would not bode well for an ANC victory. Hence I wasn't surprised to witness the most inane and toothless Nigerian ANC display  in my experience. Though we were quite solid defensively (bar the right flank, from which Nigeria leaked all three ANC goals), our lack of midfleld creativity and atrocious incohesion in the final third was excruciating to watch. Let this be a lesson to us FC (foreign coach) enthusiasts! Dave McEwan's prophecy of doom came true after all.

Egypt's display shows the supremacy of the effective team over big names from Europe, as well as the benefits of a strong local league. We Nigerians will have to accelerate our learning curve, for we are in danger of slipping into football oblivion. We were the worst team in the last eight, and Mali arguably played better football than we did. If such trends continue then there is little guarantee of our presence at the 2010 World Cup. Not that I'd be shedding tears in that eventuality...

Gogan, yes its good to be back oh. It's been a long time, but I popped in now and then to see how things were going. From the looks of things not much has changed. As for Nigeria's football team, 'super chickens' is even too good for them. I've got better chickens in my freezer  ;D. Maybe Super Fowls or something like that..
