Who coached this team?

A totally disjointed performance the whole game. Just kick and follow with no pattern.

Ghanaian teams both male and female may be mediocre when playing other teams but whenever they meet Nigeria, they come out guns blazing making you wonder if this is the same team that struggled with weaker teams. I won't be surprised if the match we have with them will bring out same scoreline

That is because we seems not to take them serious, the match was ours to win. But there was no fans from our side. We press them but decide not to score and the capitalize on the little space we gave them to score. Though a game must always go two ways but we really f**ced up yesterday.

The game was disjointed and the girls disorganized.
The referee didn't even help issues!
Out of my busy schedules, I dedicated 2 hours of my time to watched the game and have to go back into my study at 12:30 AM after the extra time of the encounter.
It was just a bad day for the girls.

You no take Ghana serious? Big lie! Always deceiving yourselves to feel good.
Nigeria ALWAYS takes Ghana very serious! Go read what Finidi George said about the friendly we are about to play today against Ghana.
Ghana has had the better record of beating Nigeria since pre-independence years, hence it has been the ambition y and determination of Nigerian football teams to always beat Ghana as a revenge. Nigeria is always very serious against Ghana, but there is some psychological fear and nervousness when the Super Eagles meet the Black Stars.
Ghana has NEVER been a team for Nigeria to take lightly or unserious during clashes. Even friendly matches are hotly contested by both teams! It is only in female football that Nigeria has clear better record against Ghana, but everybody is catching up nowadays. South Africa now has probably the strongest senior women football team in Africa now.

I never watched a more incompetent Nigerian team, ever. How they got to the final must be a mystery.
