I know this may sound contrary to popular norm, however, I have observed that the Super Eagles play better when these two players are not available. Victor Moses plays very selfishly with purposeless dribbling that tend to slow our attack down. Ighalo, on the other hand, plays a more one dimensional attack that could easily be stiffled by a good defense. I propose we use lhenacho and Alex Iwobi as two point strikers in a false 9 position, adopting the 3,5,2 formation ( same strategy we used with Argentina). You may observe that we tend to confuse and disorganise other opponents a lot when we counter ( Argentina and second half England games come to mind). Mikel is needed in the attacking midfield position while Ogu and Ndidi are needed in the defensive midfield position. Ighalo and Victor Moses may come in as substitutes to change the game strategy later on. Definitely not as starters. This is just my musing. Tell me what you think.

We may not be the best, but it's you we all have. If Iranians and Arabians support their shitty teams, then who am I to abandon my own?

I know you guys will make us proud. Whether you win or not, I stand with you through all your matches

U are very correct.

I'm a very big fan of Moses, but in our last two matches I notice that moses is now playing a kind of "I'M THE ONLY SUPER STAR FOOTBALL" in the team. very selfish and uncommitted.

At times when all hope is lost against this team,they come out and make a point.

What I mean is this....

On the road to this world cup, they lost against England Czech Republic Athletico de Madrid making three losses........this match against Croatia will be the fourth grin grin grin

Expect nothing good apart from Fashion parade.
We have won everything about fashion in the tournament we even dance Shaku shaku dea.

U think say FOOTBALL na deliverance...??
SUCCESS comes with persistent training, tactics and commitment and love for your nation.
How many of those players LOVE NIGERIA....??
Some of those players lost their PARENTS and SIBLINGS during JOS riots and Fulani herdsmen/Farmers clashes .....

Some have not been paid....at all.
Don't be shocked to hear that our COACHING CREW is being owed....
Even your SPORTS MINISTER wishes them failure.

CROATIA needs just 2 serious players to beat NIGERIA....
.......a connection between Luka Modric and Mario Manduvic ...
