Igbo people hates everybody and everybody hates Yoruba. We are not suppose to even attend the event sef , there is instability in our land! make Buhari withdraw them jare angry

Stop mixing it with Onitsha Codeine, l have told you that so many times!

Everybody cannot hate Yoruba, even if Igbos hate everybody.

The coach contributed to our downfall... How can u play mikel in number 10 role and shift iwobi to the wing... Thats trash

secondly the only friendly simy nwankwo played for Nigeria he used it to register more shots on target than Ighalo full Nigerian career..

Thirdly Moses that they won't even allow to take throwing for chelsea is the person responsible for corner kicks and freekick... smh

the only Moses we know that can cross.. Is the Moses in the bible.. At least he crossed something :/

Blame him for what?

When your midfield and attack is not doing their job well, the defense will suffer. And because of too much pressure defenders will be prone to mistakes because they are humans.

my brother u sabi watch ball walai !

coach has been making that error during friendlys I thought he was only trying them out,.how da fuvk do a coach play Mikel AM and etebo DM ..even as AM he his style was still DM taking passes home that we now launch attack from with long passes via defenders

the few times he lunch attack he will lose ball and will stay there pointing out for his team mates where to block

iwobi had to drop deep playing AM and LM instead of LW to cover Mikel ,his wing was exploited lunching switch cross severally to weak shehu RB and idow LB (again trying to play LM to cover iwobi).

if ndidi switch to LM or RM CM becomes open and crots kept on ramming at the defence, everybody is becomes disorganized and making childish error

the stupid coach would have removed Mikel in second half shift iwobi to AM then introduce musa on the wings,

later remove odion introduce kelechi ,then later a fresh DM to help ndidi moving etebo up and remove iwobi

I have been explaining about playing Mikel as AM on different thread and folks won't stop attacking me supprisingly the super sport pundits were shouting it after half time

the coach made terrible decisions

I blame myself for thinking they can surprise us o, if calamity cahill can score set piece in the England game, it shows Eagles cannot defend set pieces and instead of training to correct this, they kept on wearing stupid hats around Russian streets.

World cup is meant for men not boys like Mikel, ighalo, indidi, uwobi and others. I was not surprised because i know my country, i knew what they could do. We cant defeat or draw any country in our group. if possible we won't score a goal in the world cup before we go home. Nigeria is a disgrace.

Do you even know the difference between a CM and CAM
Mikel is a CM like Xavi and Pirlo i.e deep lying playmaker the true number 10
Iwobi is a CAM like Iniesta and David Silva, they act as the intermediary/interface between the midfield and attack
rightfully Iwobi should be playing Mikel's CURRENT (no8) position, being more of a CAM than Mikel.... but Mikel is actually a no10 don't get it confused.
Re: Nigeria Vs Croatia: World Cup - 0 - 2 On 16th June 2018 by phreakabit(m): 4:14pm On Jun 17, 2018
3-4-2-1
3-5-2
3-6-1
4-1-2-1-2 (shape shifting)
4-1-4-1
4-5-1


All available options to us, I don't know what formation we played yesterday.
There was no triangle passing or positioning, I just weak!
I am not a coach, but have read more than enough tactical analysis to know a poor formation when I see one.

With the AMAZING amount of fast players in the team we could actually even play Thomas Tuchel's crazy 3-1-2-4 formation and cause serious damage to conservative teams. We have all the requirements to play that formation effectively.

my brother u sabi watch ball walai !

coach has been making that error during friendlys I thought he was only trying them out,.how da fuvk do a coach play Mikel AM and etebo DM ..even as AM he his style was still DM taking passes home that we now launch attack from with long passes via defenders

the few times he lunch attack he will lose ball and will stay there pointing out for his team mates where to block

iwobi had to drop deep playing AM and LM instead of LW to cover Mikel ,his wing was exploited lunching switch cross severally to weak shehu RB and idow LB (again trying to play LM to cover iwobi).

if ndidi switch to LM or RM CM becomes open and crots kept on ramming at the defence, everybody is becomes disorganized and making childish error

the stupid coach would have removed Mikel in second half shift iwobi to AM then introduce musa on the wings,

later remove odion introduce kelechi ,then later a fresh DM to help ndidi moving etebo up and remove iwobi

I have been explaining about playing Mikel as AM on different thread and folks won't stop attacking me supprisingly the super sport pundits were shouting it after half time

the coach made terrible decisions
Yea my guy... Your observations are spot on. Right from those friendly matches, the errors were there. How could a coach play his attacking midfielders in defensive midfield and expect creativity in attack? Even Moses spent the entire first half covering Shehu at right back. We shouldn't have lost to a Croatian team that didn't play very much better than us. Wrong positioning killed us yesterday.
I don't know where they got that coach from. But now that the world cup is over for us, we need to start searching for a better coach.

you are spot on with all u av wrote but i felt d coach would av just told mikel to play dm nd put him behind etebo nd ndidi let dem do d chasing while mikel do d passing.
his first sub was a big error coz ighalo needed support up front i felt he wud av change either etebo or mikel for nachilo nd also change formation to d 5-3-2 that he uses against argentina nd england 2nd half d boyz played well with dat formation.
iyam not bothered about d def like dat i know it is still possible for us 2 qualify coz that Argentina team ni scare mi at alll
