Which European Team Can Eagles Beat? by ofurufu(m): 9:49am On Jul 02, 2008
Gone,surely,are the days when Super Eagles were feared not only in Africa but thruout the world. Then bookmakers will think twice before predicting Argentina as favourites pre-Nigeria-Argentina clash. Then Nigeria was reverredas being in the same class with countries like Argentina,Spain etc. Pre-match analysts will easily give 'the favourites' tag to Nigeria when they faced average European countries like Bulgaria,Greece. That was how highly rated the Eagles were then.

Suddenly,like a pack of cards,all the glory began to crumble. They totally lost reckoning in world football,and pitiably in Africa too. Countries like Angola,Gabon,Sierra Leone,Rwanda,Kenya,Niger,Lesotho and other hitherto minnows began to have gut to say they can beat Nigeria anytime they were grouped with Eagles in one qualifiers or the other.In recent time countries like Angola,Gabon,Lesotho,Sierra Leone,Uganda have either beaten the Eagles or drew with them or Eagles eking an uninspiring victory against them.

But today,with the Uche brothers marshalling the resurgence of Eagles,I believe these Eagles will fly again.
I believe the current Eagles can hold,if not beat, a country like France,England,Sweden etc. Pls Spain and Holland and even Italy are not included in my etc

God forbid bad thing. . .na 5-1 den go give us

WE can beat cyprus, iceland, armenia, estonia, albania, belarus, moldova, faroe island, Kazakhstan.

Re: Which European Team Can Eagles Beat? by cleankay: 10:55am On Jul 02, 2008
i believe this team can be very solid,they can be number one in africa again, though i think the team still lacks a solid striker.

Funny funny replies, I can't stop laughing
Re: Which European Team Can Eagles Beat? by princekay1(m): 11:45am On Jul 02, 2008
This new set of Eagles are wonderful. Getting 12 straight point is no child play, considering the pitches used, technical deficiency in the team and fire-bridgade preparation. It is obvious that Eagles can beat any team in the world if they continue this way.
Football is no more a mathematical game where you can predict the outcomes. If Rwanda can discipline Morroco and Senegal thrashing France, then Nigeria can conquer the world. I believe 2010 is our year of glory; Eagles will lift the World Cup in SA.
I can bet my life on it!
Re: Which European Team Can Eagles Beat? by tkb417(m): 12:32pm On Jul 02, 2008
Yes 12 points against Equitorial Guinea probably ranked 1,000th in the world
ok. when Angola comes, you shall see

bet ur life on it? na so u wan die?
abeggi, dont even stake ur life on the eagles winning a friendly tourney; world cup?
hehehehehehehe
joke of the millinieum.

Re: Which European Team Can Eagles Beat? by Akolawole(m): 1:17pm On Jul 02, 2008
We can conveniently beat Republic of Ireland, Scotland and Spain.

We might draw England.

And you would throw your life away rather cheaply too.
Senegal thrashed France? Do you know the meaning of the word "thrashed"? Or are your referring to another game other than the one which ended 1-0 in the 2002 world cup?

I agree with you though, that the super Eagles can beat any team in the world. "Can", being the operative word, refers to possibility.
Any team can beat any team under the right conditions.

My own take is this: among the teams that featured at the just-concluded Euro 2008, given their present playing levels, I would tip the super eagles to beat:
Likely
Switzerland
Austria
Poland
Romania
Maybe
France
Greece
Draw
Italy
Sweden
Would probably receive a thrashing from
Germany
Spain
Holland
Russia
Croatia
Turkey
Portugal
Czech republic

cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy cheesy, please, go post on the joke thread,they need you,it's really get dry there, come oh, are u serious betting wit your life, because even our 1982 team of that timeeeeee, i no sure say them fit beat latvia or cyprus,
infact its like whites are just superior to blacks, sometimes i feel say if all albinos go form one nation come world cup, they find their self in nigeria group, them go give us 4-0, simply because them white(i mean yellow) grin
Re: Which European Team Can Eagles Beat? by akinalabi(m): 10:43pm On Jul 02, 2008
I agree with Akola.

We can beat Spain. We've only met once in the past and we
hammered them.

So why not now?

Remember the likes of Raul and Luis Enrique were in their prime then
and the Nigerian players that hammered them were not the top players
in the world.

The likes of Amokachi (Turkey) Jay Jay (Turkey) Garba Lawal (God knows
where) Adepoju (I think second division in Spain) came out tops.

Anybody is beatable. wink

@Akinalabi

We are talking of the modern day Super Eagles with Modern day European teams

gone are those days you are talkinig about
Re: Which European Team Can Eagles Beat? by Akolawole(m): 2:17am On Jul 03, 2008
@Akin

dont mind them

They(Spain) were leading by 2 goals to 1. And we beat them by oliseh cracker.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=69Eu8HMrG94

I remember all the noiseof Arsenal Ladies, England female national team et al, we still beat them.
Re: Which European Team Can Eagles Beat? by dayokanu(m): 8:09am On Jul 03, 2008
Andorra and Latvia are not even sure.

@Akin

don't mind them

So Senegal would beat France, Cameroun would beat Argentina, Cameroun would beat Brazil because they had one fortunate win.

If you are saying anything is possible then Agege United can beat Spain. Its possible but what is the probability? less than 4%
Re: Which European Team Can Eagles Beat? by akinalabi(m): 8:13am On Jul 03, 2008
@ folahann,

There is nothing gone in those days. It can still happen
today. Our players are even more exposed to some extent.

I remember we used to have players without clubs starting
for the Eagles in the 90s.

We can beat Spain joo smiley

@ Akola,

What these guys fail to acknowledge is that Eagles will surely
raise their game when they get to the big stage.

People say we can only square up with the likes of Moldova
and Malta but I didnt see us shake against Austria 2 months
ago.

I'm not saying Austria is a powerhouse but what we can't deny
is the fact that they raised their game.

There are very few teams out there that will faze the likes of
Kanu, Yobo, Yakubu, Obi (I dont like that boy), Osaze etc.

We fit beat them joooo.
Re: Which European Team Can Eagles Beat? by iykedee: 8:56am On Jul 03, 2008
I think we can get a draw from an injury plagued latvia. Brazil, spain are no go areas cos 123-2 would be very embarassing!
Re: Which European Team Can Eagles Beat? by tkb417(m): 9:41am On Jul 03, 2008
@Akin Alabi
chei!!! wetin u dey talk
ok cos we are beating Equitorial Guinea, we can beat Spain?
do u want us to lose to Sierria Leone b4 u know these eagles cannot play?

let us beat Angola, CIV, Egypt, Ghana and Cameroon b4 we can start thinking of playing Spain.

nwaneri vs Torres
hehehehehe. na wao
lets leave patriotism aside, our eagles cannot play Russia not with that Asharvin boi
Re: Which European Team Can Eagles Beat? by khaikhai: 10:11am On Jul 03, 2008
no be 10 man Ghana take us do shakara for january??
