DEFENCE: okonkwo's at the left full back performance is commendable, he has performed aboved expectation, however ade, looks somehow rusty in the right full back

MID FIELD: the defensive midfield has been rock solid with kaita, however the offensive is the main problem of the dream team. Also okonkwo operating from the right flank is rather too slugish and i feel thats the reasons why the right full is rather weak, odemwingie could fit into that role

ATTACK:peering anichebe and ogbuke could wreck any defence b'cos they're both quick and sharp at turning and they got pace

This is obviously not Nigeria's strongest under-23 team. Almost all other countries, especially Argentina,Brazil,Holland and CIV went to this tournament with their strongest team.
Our fullest team should have contained Uche,Mikel,and Taiwo. So their chance of winning Gold is slim, to me.

That said, the team has not performed too badly.Recall few people gave them chance of qualifying from that group pre-tournament, but even the tournament favourite,Holland, settled for the second place behind our boys. They were especially fantastic against USA and Japan and not bad against the highly rated Dutch.

We have too many attackers and no strong midfield. The defence has not been bad either. And GK Vanzekin needs to be careful.

Activities have really been more at the wings than any other department.

But one thing I'm confident about is that our attack-force can score against any team,even Argentina and Brazil. Ogbuke scored a wonderful goal against Argentina in 2005. Anichebe, Nsofor,Osaze are other players that can score at the biggest level.

well, i believe siasia boys have done well so far and they can improve, but, the positions that worries me are the right back and the offensive midfield. from my own perspective Adefemi (jersey no 13) is one of the biggest errors that is yet to be seen; he is shaky and most times indecisive. imagine him tackling a player like Lionel Messi, Ronaldinho,
I hope they improve
However Vanzekin needs to be called to order shocked shocked
