Nigeria: The Super Eagles may not qualify

Emmanuel discusses the Nigerian national soccer team, the Super Eagles: “Berti Vogts has finally brought some pride to many a Nigerian coach who has perpetually been looked down upon by the NFA. Ever since I grew up to know what football is, ever since I started watching the super Eagles on TV, this is the first time the Super Eagles may not get through the group stages.”

    Hi guys,

    We like it or not what is happening to the supper eagles of Nigeria is real, that is we have a wrong coach, who can even read a game well. i had for a long time hoped that Votz will perform, but with every match he is porving to Nigerians that he was good as a player and not a coach. NFA should own up to their mistake of hiring Votz. we can only pray and hope that MOTHER luck, smile on us . God bless Nigeria

    When the supper Eagles played with Uganda Cranes and in Abeokuta, i realised we have a problem with the Eagles. Uganda outplayed us and even equalised at the end which goal was cancelled.No wonder the eagles were beaten in kampala 2:1.

    We can have a new start if the NFA gets new and young talent.

    The so-called professionals can not take us anywere. Actaully our place in the tournament belongs to Uganda.
