    God bless Enyeama for me…keep him in your arms. Let your angels cover him and keep him safe for Nigeria. Dont allow one hair on that lovely specimen be harmed. Let his oh so fine face be ever before you. Hold his hands in yours even as he attempts to catch every ball the Italians are throwing his way. No ball fashioned against him will prosper. They will miss their mark. One may come by his side, on top, by his right hand but none will enter into the secret place. In your secret place under the goal post will you hide him and cause no ball to enter. Amen

    BN your headlines are misleading for those of us at work not watching this.
    It should be: Nigeria vs Argentina Match (1-2) NOT Nigeria vs Argentina Match (2-1).

      Was about to start bragging to my co-workers now, thank goodness I checked first.

    Why is everyone praising Enyama when the two goals were scored by Musa? Adim so confused. Same thing with the last game….people were only praising enyama but none gave Osaze some props too.

      Everyone is praising Enyeama because he was the MVP of the game. If he had conceded all the goals he saved from Di Maria laasan. ..Our boys would be packing their bags to come home now.

      Cos it would have been a lot worse without Enyeama’s great saves….kudos to Musa and the rest of the team sha

    i am very impress with the Nigeria vs Argentina…
    Coach Kehsi made a silly mistake by not play Moses in the match…
    i wonder whether there is something there?

    since france 98. hopefully we do well. seems like someone made osaze angry, he didn’t play eel, there was tension. muss did well, as always. why is enyeama always smiling, dude was just too excited, quite funny and weird to see him very happy in tense situations

    I’m so proud! I swear, even if Iran had beaten Bosnia and we hadn’t moved on I’d have been proud. We brought it today!

    i have to say, this match seemed fixed, let’s hope nigeria does well and gets to the quarter finals for my doubts to go away. the game was a bit weird, but i’m happy we progressed.

      Girlllll, it felt like the ref was seriously favoring the Argentines!

    Proud of the team, they played well! People praise Enyeama because he saves us from humiliation. Even with Osazes goal, if we had conceded any goals, we would be out now.

    Last time I watched naija qualify to the knockout stage was back in 1998. We made it again, albeit the long wait. Great job by Musa, our amazing goalkeeper, and the rest of the Super eagles. Great job Keshi – please ditch the gum:)

    See how this world is so unfair, I wound take Musa’s goals anyday over Messi’s goals but the whole seem to be carried away by the so called Messi’s ‘MAGICAL’ goals.

      You do have to give it to Meesi, though. He’s kind of a legend on the goal scoring front (heir apparent indeed to Diego Maradona).

    I LOVE NIGERIA. Musa’s goal was more impressive than Messi’s. No free kick required. GO SUPER EAGLES.
