    Best performace of the eagles for a while now..I was impressed though a lot of work still needs to be done defensively and they also
    need to be consistent and focus when leading there opponent cuz a very good team will punish you for that.

    On a normal day, Super Eagles usually put us in a tight corner/angle to the extent that we have to bring out a calculator to do permutation. I can’t even remember the last time we are in the driver’s seat like this. Keep it up Eagles!

    Magic of a foreign coach! Local coaches are not technically gifted. We struggled in the world cup against Iran! They use it rehabilitate players. How could Shola Ameobi, ochebo make world cup?
