like the serbia game....?
it so much pains me...that we barely have midfieders that can barely pass well....connect the midfield with the attack....
Free yourself. It's just a game. Meanwhile was Onazi and Etebo that bad?

As usual, i wasn't expecting anything different on this thread.

Some will surely blame everything else for their loved players.

Some will even use others as yardstick to why theirs shouldn't be blamed.

Too many emotional and sentimental people on this thread of recent including known monikers..

Just too many.. but then, i ain't surprised though, some people just can't help it.

From "the pitch was bad" to "He's not used to the weather" bla bla bla. like those who did well on that same pitch were born on such pitch.

Let's continue with our sentimental/emotional biases o as long as it makes you people sleep at night.

We are having too many noise makers on this thread with fewer logical and rational analysts..

All i am saying, Bring back the true analysts!

Don't try to prove to be too smart by lieing through your teeth.

Ebuehi held the back of his thighs first before he got to ground and held his toes.

That's a sign of pain in the groin which is called hamstring injury.

If he didn't aggravate it and was walking well after the match then Glory be to God because I will be guttered if that injury resurfaced

But let it be known to you that my first paragraph wasn't a statement of fact rather that of fear and uncertainty.

Pls stop saying nonsense. You have been saying the wrong thing since and people have been trying to correct you yet you chose to be incorrigible. Do you even know what a hamstring injury is? Pls just stop and go to bed. You need to rest.

How will this change Russia now? How? Nwakali or Azubuike can make no difference now.

We are not going to Russia to win the world cup, are we? There's life after Russia, it's not enough for Pinick to say he has teams for 2022 and 2026 world cups. I'm obviously talking about Nwakali and Azubuike for reference purposes, this Russian world cup have come and gone as far as I'm concerned.

"Lying through my teeth" Haha.. I am telling you what i saw, it looked nothing like a hamstring injury.

There is a difference between a groin injury and Hamstring injury.

Your hamstring is no where near your groin.

Haha!! I knew that this comparison was coming! Comparing those two friendly games is silly to say the least.

First of all, the pitch today was so bad that it was simply impossible to play good football on such pitch. Secondly, the team (Super Eagles) was taking it easy. After what happened to Moses Simeon, nobody wants to get hurt on that bad pitch and miss the World Cup, especially playing against a team with nothing to lose (DR Congo). If you want to blame anyone then blame the NFF for wasting a good opportunity by organizing this friendly game in PH.

Here's what I said to them on twitter:

Yes, the quality of football they played inspired a lot for confidence. Bros, that team B bossed Athletico in midfield all night long. Had them chasing shadows for long periods. What they lacked was better coordination in defence, which doesn't come overnight anyway, it takes a long time to drill a defence into shape.

Most of those guys deserves to rub shoulders with the big boys, if Rohr was more open minded. One of the problems this team will have to overcome is complacency. Psychologically, Africans don't function well without competition. Alot of these players know their place is assured after the Argentina game, this have affected thier output. Very typical of Africans

Let us see Simy on a better pitch first.. I think, we will see more of a first team against England. Lokosa made a good account of himself but i doubt, he will be among the 23.

For sake of fairness, against England, I would want us to start Ighalo as the CF and at half time depending on how the game is going we feature Simy.

But if you ask me, I think this Simy looks more threatening than Ighalo.

As for Lokosa, he did very well even though he was played out of position. Even if he doesn't make Russia, he has done enough to merit future invitations to the national team.

Simon's injury has made the selection a bit easier for Rohr.

I have a sneaky feeling that the last forward spot will be a decision to take either Simmy or Lokosa. With the way the former rattled the Congolese defense, coupled with a decent outing against England on Saturday, 6’6” Simmy Nwankwo May just sneak into the final 23...

Super Eagles Fans Are All Saying The Same Thing About Simy After Sparkling Debut
Published: May 28, 2018
Super Eagles Fans Are All Saying The Same Thing About Simy After Sparkling Debut
Crotone striker Simeon Tochukwu Nwankwo showed his class with an impressive performance on his full debut for the Super Eagles and Nigeria fans have sent a message to manager Gernot Rohr that he must be on the plane to Russia.

The lanky forward was brilliant in his movement, showed signs he can pose danger in the opposition penalty area, and was unlucky not to score after hitting the post with a left-footed strike in the first half and came close with a brilliant header in the second stanza.

Simy finished last season as Nigeria's top scorer in Europe's top five leagues with seven goals for a struggling club.

Here are some of the reactions on Twitter from Super Eagles fans who are raving about his performance against the Leopards:

@Ebuka : ''Simy Nwankwo has had a good game today.''

@debolaadebanjo : ''Match to forget, not for Simy Nwankwo though.''

@TheOddSolace : ''To be honest, this match is a write-off in my eyes. Only thing meaningful out of it is that Simy has looked good in snatches.''

@jeremy_liit : ''Okay seen enough of Simy Nwankwo to know he has to go to Russia.''

@MFBANE301 : ''Simy should be on the plane to Russia, we don't have many true strikers.''

@oluwasanmiSolo1 : ''I think simy nwakwo will take moses Simon spot in the team.''

@adesurplux : ''This guy Simy should make the final 23, good player to deputy Ighalo #NGA''.

@TheSilentMafia_ : ''Simy Nwankwo is already in the Worldcup team.''

@ade1402 : ''Simy Nwankwo should make the pack to Russia. He has all the attributes of a striker.''

@riicojay13 : ''If mikel Agu makes it to world cup it is a clear indication he bribe his way in, Simy very decent if he get better supply must make the team in my opinion..Echejile has no business going too.''

@david_ezennunu4 : ''It's been really shallow from the midfield in this game but this new boy simy nwakwo that is the center forward for this game is really good, he should def be taken along to d world cup. More competition for ighalo''.

@OmotayoA : ''Simy Nwankwo has really positioned himself for the World Cup based on the performance today. Given time and better services from the middle, he promises to be another enterprising striker for Nigeria while also adding the physical presence upfront. Quite impressed with him.''

@Tautolo52179558 : ''Simy nwankwo should b in Russia.''

@NurudeenObalola : ''I think Simy should be on the plane to Russia...''.

@AYOMIDE_SUPER : ''Simy nwankwo must go to russia ooo i no wan know how @NGSuperEagles''.

@Biola_Carter : ''This Simy Nwankwo must go to Russia... But I need someone to tell me one special thing about that Etebor guy.''

@tcompton_Lion : ''Simy nwankwo is on that plane to Russia already

is only in Nairaland i see someone saying simmy is too soft for CF role, maybe una need bouncer for the role

Rohr said his only regret with the 30 man list is that people are talking more about the players not on the list than players on the list.

Now team B is the bride of Nigerian football.

If he carries A they will cry why not B. If he carries B they will say the man is corrupt.

I trust Nigerian fans and how they switch 180 degrees depending on the outcome of every game.

The pitch really messed the whole game up.

Pinnick and the entire NFF deserve 77 strokes of the cane each for taking our beloved team to that kind of injuries threatening pitch.

They are taking 180million Nigerians for granted. What was all that show of shame for?

You take a WC bound team to a potato farm to go and break their legs abi? And some fans are already quick to start condeming the team.

Those of us that have followed this team right from that game against Tanzania know the team very and what they can do.

One of the major positives of this game is Simy Nwankwo. That guy is so impossing and so daring. He was a major threat all night.

Let's see the boys against England.

Oga, why do you always make comments like these?

That's how the other time you magnified Cameroon so tey you became a Cameroonian fan at a point.
So because Nwakali and Azubuike are not in this team your own World Cup has come and gone.

Well, for me the World Cup party is just about to start. I have placed order for my jersey already. I have my collection of Green and White Super Eagles Survenoirs. I am placing them on my dash board like I always do during major competitions.

The World Cup party takes place only once in 4 years and I would not let one or two players that were not selected spoil my fun.

And by the way, DR Congo are no pushovers either. This is the same Congo team that played Egypt out of the park in Cairo and could've easily won that match, if they had taken their chances. And it took a dodgy injury time penalty for Egypt to beat them 2-1 in Cairo! So let's put this performance in perspectives as well ... they played against a good team.
