how many games nigeria played and won in the past years?. we dont perform very well. america played and win many games including their world cup qualifiers
Re: Fifa Rankings by nicetohave(m): 5:07am On Dec 10, 2005
and who even told you the US team cant beat the super eagles when the super eagles cant beat the angolans that the USA are going to whip silly at the mundial...look dont say that again, the thought of it alone make my head hurt.
Re: Fifa Rankings by vichel(m): 6:26pm On Dec 12, 2005
I don't mean to touch any bad spots wink But look at it this way the new super eagles team is unbelievable, i can tell for a fact that they can take on anybody from the Top 10. Let me ask u a question, How many matches has england played? and how many have they won? Didn't they just get their ass whooped by northern ireland. They have not won any major trophies since 1966 but they are rated very high. We have bad management, but there is no denying the fact that we have a world class team that can beat any country in the world. Pls on physical level and talent the Us team is no way compared to the Super Eagles
Re: Fifa Rankings by nicetohave(m): 6:41pm On Dec 12, 2005
And they cant beat Angola? remember that singular last minute goal in kano sent us out of the world cup race ever before the last macth was played...i knew we were out. It is sad believe me...we have a good but unreliable team! that is what constitute rankings...consistency...i dont know what are fifa's criteria but i know our super eagles deserve the spot they occupy presently...did i hear someone say Romania 3 vs Nigeria 0 ?

1. look, if we play USA now, we'll lose.

2. the FIFA rankings don't make sense, the USA is rated higher than Italy. explain that.

c0dec...its really not about the match results now...because a football match can swing either way...its the consistency and the knack for taking the chances that comes your way that counts...we flaundered big time...thats the key thing...italy hasnt been spectacular either...remember USA topped the concacaf group...and has been in good form.

well, italy also topped their group five points clear of the 2nd placed norway. in recent friendlies against the dutch and germans, the italians won. that's consistent enough for me.

noted...lets see what Germany 2006 will bring...but for the super eagles, they need more character

Man u guys, Nigeria's position on the FIFA ranking is correct bcus they consider points played in every match (friendly n competition) so u can't really blame them. Nigerians really have to sit down and trace were the problem is coming from. Trust me it is suppose to be first place Brazil then second place Nigeria, bcus we are the second largest country to export players abroad, after brazil who happen to be the first and we are one of the most skillful countries. Another thing about Nigeria is that, our Nigerian players play for money while other countries play for the passion of the game, TRUST ME IT REALLY COUNTS.
Nice to be part of this site mates. The names Adonis, the next best thing. FOR REAL O.see ya.
