Mikel Obi Reacts To Nigeria 2 - 0 Loss To Croatia by goldcoinhub: 7:44am On Jun 17, 2018
Super Eagles captain Mikel Obi has reacted to the team’s 2-0 loss to Croatia in their Group D opening in World Cup 2018.

The Super Eagles skipper said he was baffled at the manner the team conceded two goals from set pieces.

An own goal from midfielder Oghenekaro Etebo and a penalty from Luka Modric condemned Nigeria to a 2-0 defeat at the Kaliningrad Stadium.

Mikel said:

“It’s difficult to explain. We talked about it and considering the fact that we trained on it.

“It’s four goals conceded now from set-piece. We have to keep going to try to improve on set pieces.”

Mikel was also quick to play down talk of his teammates’ inexperience against the star-studded Croatian side.

“I think the young guys did well but we just have to keep going and trying to get better,” he added.

A lot of Nigerians have however berated the Super Eagles over their performance at the World Cup. The match would make it the 3rd straight loss the team would have at any international match.

A forum user wrote that the match against Croatia was the worst match the Super Eagles had ever had at any World Cup

"The super eagles were terrible today against Croatia in their opening match at the Russia 2018 world cup. This is the worst game the super eagles have had in their world cup history.

All the players were terrible, the coach came with a rigid game plan that emasculated the team and locked in their advantage which was their youthful energy.

The super eagles looked pitiable against their opponent." He wrote.

Nigeria will face Iceland in their next game.

The only we reaction we need is that mikel should stop passing to the back or he should sit on the bench while iwobi who is more creative take his place, Moses should also stop falling like the wall of Jericho and step up to lead us out of the wilderness. Iheanacho should either take igalo's place or should made to support him.
I thought Ekong is one of the oyinbo wall, while is he hugging like someone who hasn't seen a white man before or he wants Nigerians not to Troost Ekong again.

As I watched the Argentina and Iceland match today and wondered why there were no black players in the Argentinean team when other South American teams had black or biracial players, I remembered a conversation I had last year. It was while I was on a cruise from Florida to the Grand Cayman Islands in the Caribbean. Between an Argentinean doctor and myself, who had walked up to me during lunch one day and struck up a conversation with me. There was no hiding the attraction. We had bonded much to the chagrin of her three Argentinean friends. On the deck of the ship that day, she kept going on about how she loves black men and looks forward to traveling so she can meet them. I asked her. "Don't you have black people in Argentina?" She said with a matter of fact candour. "No. Long time ago, after slavery, we killed them all." I was taken aback. She smiled. And continued. "Very bad. I am ashamed of my people. It was very systematic though. Very well thought out. First they forced most of the men to fight for Argentina against Paraguay. They knowingly sent them into battles that were poorly planned so that the Paraguay army will do for them what they couldn't themselves do. Kill the blacks. Most of them died there. The remaining of them they forced to live in this province were there was a plague. A disease that the government refused to curb so that it can also do for them what they couldn't do. Kill the blacks. The refused to set up hospitals, clinics, adequate shelter, food outlets, nothing. They created the best environment for the disease to thrive. It killed the rest of the men that had survived the war. The darker you are, the higher the chance they will send you to that place to live or to the war to die. The lighter skinned women they forced them to sleep with the white men, so that their children are biracial, then they forced the children when they grew older to sleep with white men, so that the blackness of the skin of the children became whiter and whiter until there was no longer any visibly black people seen. It was so bad that blacks fled to Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Brazil and even Paraquay where they were better treated even though not as well as they should be treated as human beings deserving full equality. Atleast those ones did not want to kill them and accepted to give them protection and a means of livelihood. As a matter of fact in Chile, there was a city called Arica where Black people were so accepted and respected that in the 1700s two black free man, one called Anzuréz were elected mayors. But the white colonial masters from Spain came six months later and nullified the elections, they were afraid of other cities giving black people too many rights. But the blacks who had found succour did not complain, they sent word for others to flee Argentina and come join them. Afterall what was cancelled elections compared to certain death?" Then she went silent as though trying to replay the magnitude of the crime in her mind again. Then she said it in a sombre tone in order to drive it home to me. "The ones the Argentineans did not kill through war or disease, and rape and impregnate, fled the country and ultimately we got rid of the blacks." I listened in rising sorrow. She continued academically. "So although they abolished slavery in 1815 in Argentina, it continued until 1853, after that the main preoccupation of the leaders was how to get rid of the black slaves and their descendants. Our president who ruled us from 1868 to 1874, Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, wrote in his diary in 1848, this was long before he became president and slavery ended that - 'In the United States… 4 million are black, and within 20 years will be 8 million…. What is to be done with such blacks, hated by the white race?' - It shows that he was already thinking of how to eliminate black people before he became President and when he became President, he succeeded." "Didn't the world say anything?" "No. They ignored it. I am sure most of them wanted to do the same thing but failed. At that time, they admired them. I remember when I will go to Brazil as a child, my father's friend will say in disgust as he looked at the black Brazilians - we should have had your guts and finished them off. All of them. Make Brazil white just like Argentina." "And the Europeans?" She laughed. "It is an open secret, just like King Leopold and his genocide in Congo. No one talks about it, but they know about it. Atleast the older ones do. The younger ones not so much. Why do you think all the Nazis ran to Argentina after World War 2?" I was silent. She continued. "Because it was the perfect place for the most evil racists in history to live." Then she looked out to the infinitely blue sea around the ship and sighed audibly before she continued. " Sadly, to some extent, it still is welcoming and accomodating of racial hatred. We took the Tango from the African slaves and made it our own. In Argentina, not one person will tell you the true history of that dance. They don't want to associate it with Africa. In fact if you ask them about black people in Argentina they will tell you that there has never been black people in Argentina. They teach them in schools. They rewrite the history. They make it all white. And as I said it is all underneath the surface. They never come out and say we hate black people. Argentina is only for whites or anything like that. They have just fixed the country to only be for white people." I looked at her friends, Argentineans like her, who were lounging on the chairs on the deck, clad in their tiny bikinis, drinking pina coladas and smiling. She followed my gaze and then turned to me. "Don't be fooled by all those smiles, scratch the surface and you will see that all they want is for you to disappear." Toronto.

Dis Mikel is d team problem. Iwobi d only creative playmaker was played out of position because of mikel.
In defensive midfield, both etebo and ndidi are better than him.
Let Gernot rohr bench dis guy, play Iwobi as our no 10 and flank him wit musa and moses.
With dis formation, we go beat iceland and Argentina.

As I watched the Argentina and Iceland match today and
wondered why there were no black players in the Argentinean
team when other South American teams had black or biracial
players, I remembered a conversation I had last year.
It was while I was on a cruise from Florida to the Grand
Cayman Islands in the Caribbean.
Between an Argentinean doctor and myself, who had walked
up to me during lunch one day and struck up a conversation
with me.
There was no hiding the attraction.
We had bonded much to the chagrin of her three Argentinean
friends.
On the deck of the ship that day, she kept going on about how
she loves black men and looks forward to traveling so she can
meet them.
I asked her.
"Don't you have black people in Argentina?"
She said with a matter of fact candour.
"No. Long time ago, after slavery, we killed them all."
I was taken aback.
She smiled.
And continued.
"Very bad. I am ashamed of my people. It was very systematic
though. Very well thought out. First they forced most of the
men to fight for Argentina against Paraguay. They knowingly
sent them into battles that were poorly planned so that the
Paraguay army will do for them what they couldn't themselves
do. Kill the blacks. Most of them died there. The remaining of
them they forced to live in this province were there was a
plague. A disease that the government refused to curb so that
it can also do for them what they couldn't do. Kill the blacks.
The refused to set up hospitals, clinics, adequate shelter, food
outlets, nothing. They created the best environment for the
disease to thrive. It killed the rest of the men that had
survived the war. The darker you are, the higher the chance
they will send you to that place to live or to the war to die. The
lighter skinned women they forced them to sleep with the
white men, so that their children are biracial, then they forced
the children when they grew older to sleep with white men, so
that the blackness of the skin of the children became whiter
and whiter until there was no longer any visibly black people
seen. It was so bad that blacks fled to Chile, Peru, Bolivia,
Brazil and even Paraquay where they were better treated even
though not as well as they should be treated as human beings
deserving full equality. Atleast those ones did not want to kill
them and accepted to give them protection and a means of
livelihood. As a matter of fact in Chile, there was a city called
Arica where Black people were so accepted and respected
that in the 1700s two black free man, one called Anzuréz were
elected mayors. But the white colonial masters from Spain
came six months later and nullified the elections, they were
afraid of other cities giving black people too many rights. But
the blacks who had found succour did not complain, they sent
word for others to flee Argentina and come join them. Afterall
what was cancelled elections compared to certain death?"
Then she went silent as though trying to replay the magnitude
of the crime in her mind again. Then she said it in a sombre
tone in order to drive it home to me.
"The ones the Argentineans did not kill through war or
disease, and rape and impregnate, fled the country and
ultimately we got rid of the blacks."
I listened in rising sorrow.
She continued academically.
"So although they abolished slavery in 1815 in Argentina, it
continued until 1853, after that the main preoccupation of the
leaders was how to get rid of the black slaves and their
descendants. Our president who ruled us from 1868 to 1874,
Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, wrote in his diary in 1848, this
was long before he became president and slavery ended that -
'In the United States… 4 million are black, and within 20 years
will be 8 million…. What is to be done with such blacks, hated
by the white race?' - It shows that he was already thinking of
how to eliminate black people before he became President
and when he became President, he succeeded."
"Didn't the world say anything?"
"No. They ignored it. I am sure most of them wanted to do the
same thing but failed. At that time, they admired them. I
remember when I will go to Brazil as a child, my father's friend
will say in disgust as he looked at the black Brazilians - we
should have had your guts and finished them off. All of them.
Make Brazil white just like Argentina."
"And the Europeans?"
She laughed.
"It is an open secret, just like King Leopold and his genocide
in Congo. No one talks about it, but they know about it.
Atleast the older ones do. The younger ones not so much.
Why do you think all the Nazis ran to Argentina after World
War 2?"
I was silent.
She continued.
"Because it was the perfect place for the most evil racists in
history to live."
Then she looked out to the infinitely blue sea around the ship
and sighed audibly before she continued.
" Sadly, to some extent, it still is welcoming and accomodating
of racial hatred. We took the Tango from the African slaves
and made it our own. In Argentina, not one person will tell you
the true history of that dance. They don't want to associate it
with Africa. In fact if you ask them about black people in
Argentina they will tell you that there has never been black
people in Argentina. They teach them in schools. They rewrite
the history. They make it all white. And as I said it is all
underneath the surface. They never come out and say we hate
black people. Argentina is only for whites or anything like that.
They have just fixed the country to only be for white people."
I looked at her friends, Argentineans like her, who were
lounging on the chairs on the deck, clad in their tiny bikinis,
drinking pina coladas and smiling.
She followed my gaze and then turned to me.
"Don't be fooled by all those smiles, scratch the surface and
you will see that all they want is for you to disappear."
Toronto.
Deep.
Assuming it's true
