Don't mind them. Because we beat North Korea, the hype ha started.

We can't beat France. In fact we will be lucky to finish that match ith a draw. Our chances of drawing that match is 0.87%.

A good number of that french team play for good teams and they don't waste chances at goal. However, in my heart, I really want the girls to prove me wrong but I won't be surprised if they don't sad

The core of that French team won Champions league 4 times in a row with Lyon

Women's football is straight forward, we better than you we beat you

Mhen, Korea was obviously the better team. Too many defensive errors on our part.

Hmm. No more minnows....


This AFCON go sweet.


Actually bro there are minnows in Africa football. The problem is that some of these big boys on the continent with some big name players(Senegal CIV, et al) don't always play as a team.. Maybe it has to do with arrogance on the part of the players or poor coaching....

Egypt have never really boost of having the best squad in Africa(as per big name players) but they are the most successful..

I'm not expecting the likes of Madagascar, Burundi Namibia,etc to produce much upset at the AFCON .they will just be tough to beat...

So you think that this is a well coached team? Listen, winning covers up a lot of things but if you can look beyond the win you'd realize that this team still can't do the basics. They leave a lot of spaces once they re not with the ball. Their off the ball movement is close to zero …. all eyes on d ball without watching the opponent free runners, no shape, can't pass, can't shoot, can't defend, and often don't know where their markers are.

Considering that we've been participating in the WWC for the past 20 years or so; one would expect to see some improvements. Was I expecting too much


O pari



The team play is so poor.

Tanzania may be tough to beat too. The best black footballer in Belgium (Ebony Award) this past season was won by ther striker, Samatta.

They didn't have any chances to take. It could easily have been 5 if we had taken ours. We had the better chances.

I don't know how some of these guys watch football.
Netherlands vs Portugal. Who played, who won!
One guy said they can't pass, how did Oshoala scored.

France should please beat Norway so they can qualify with a game to spare and so rest key players when they play against Nigeria grin

Even if they play their third reserve eleven, we will still get a heavy hammering.

The Falcons team I saw today was woeful. They didn't deserve to win at all.

I'm very patriotic but even in my wildest fantasies I cannot see us scraping a win over that French team. Heck, if we get away with less than 3 goals that day we should consider ourselves lucky.

Omo, see squad

When you have a squad without fabinho, Marcelo and where ederson cannot make first team. A squad that benches William at Chelsea, then you just know they must be getting some things right with their football. I hop Naija can try to emulate them and get there someday.

If they are tough to beat then it's already an upset. Morocco went on to lose that game to Gambia yesterday.

The Koreans where better than the falcons yesterday both in possession, techniques, chances created, passes, even FIFA ranking. But what happened?
Am not saying we will beat France o. We will even be lucky to get a draw but don't say women football is straight forward. Japan women vs Argentina should always be a high scoring win for the Japanese, but what happened? Australia will always trounce Italy, what happened? Even Canada laboured to beat Cameroun 1-0.

I agree with you on this. In fact, that's what Tite (Brazil coach) will most likely do because fact is Willian is not like he used to be and Neres is an upcoming star on good form.

We have also come a long way; I mean the Super Eagles. Rohr has been doing a hood job so far bar the WC misadventure. I don't think there has ever been a time like this when majority of our players were linked to top clubs in Europe. But we can do better sha.

I really hope for an excellent outing in AFCON. It will boost the profile of our players too
