Don’t Take South Africa For Granted, Fans Caution Super Eagles by agwom(m): 3:44pm On Jul 09
Soccer fans in Kaduna on Tuesday tasked Super Eagles to do everything possible to win their next match with South Africa and qualify for semi finals. The soccer fans, who spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), said the Super Eagles should approach the match with determination and play as a team.

Isaiah Benjamin, Chairman, Sports Writers’ Association of Nigeria, Kaduna chapter, said although expectations were high, however, with a good play, the Eagles would be victorious. “South Africa is certainly not a team that can be taken for granted. The Super Eagles must put in more efforts to scale through to semi finals. “Indeed, the games are getting tougher, but with determination and team play, I see them emerging victorious,” Benjamin said.

A Sports Analyst, Vincent Akinbami , expressed optimism that with team work, there would be a good outcome. “What was lacking in the team before was team work and team spirit, but so far, I will say they have been adjusting. “With the Egyptian fans behind us and the new spirit in the team, I see them scaling through. “Iwobi is beginning to know the responsibility bestowed upon him; the attackers too are building confidence. I see them beating South Africa and getting better with every match till the cup is won,” Akinbami said. Another Sports Analyst, Jide Bodunde, said the Super Eagles needed extra efforts to win the match.

“On paper, you expect the Super Eagles to win, but football has gone beyond that. “Super Eagles had not defeated South Africa in the last five meetings. South Africa have had one win and finished the remaining four in draws. “I believe the Super Eagles will beat South Africa but it won’t come easy. A country that eliminated the host country (Egypt) and pre-tournament’s favourite in the presence of over 60,000 fans should be taken seriously.

“They have players like Tacey Taw who loves scoring against Nigeria and Lorch who scored the goal against Egypt as their key men. They should therefore be closely watched,” he said. Bodunde expressed happiness with Odion Ighalo for rediscovering his scoring form which, he said, was good for the Super Eagles. According to him, Alex Iwobi is also one key player for the Super Eagles. “My biggest worry is our defence line. They were shaky against Cameroon, thereby exposing the goalkeeper, a situation that made him to concede two easy goals.

“My prediction is 2-1 in favour of the Super Eagles,” the sport analyst said. A Football Fan, Abdulmalik Yusuf, said with determination, Super Eagles would win the match. “We are winning the match in spite of having a confused coach who, up till now, does not know his first 11. “The players should be determined and the outcome will be good,” he said. Yusuf said Nigerians were ready to support the team with prayers but appealed to the Federal Government to give them necessary encouragements to boost their morale. (NAN)

Whether Nigeria wins or not, just a little value is added to our lives. Aside the excitement and fun, what else?

*Focusing on more important things*

Yeah, I know I am stupid to some people... I do not give a damn wink

If they like let them take South Africa for granted Nigerians will be waiting for them back home.

This same South Africa came to Warri to embarrassed the Super Eagle so if their brain do not tell them it's pay back time then they should be ready to be embarrass by Nigerian fans.
