What kinda biased analysis is this? I am not sure you watched that game..
Adeleye and James committed school boys errors and Adeleye was even lucky not to get a yellow card for his erronous tackle on messi..

FYI, before you spew another word, i am not a fan of messi.
just Nigerians being emotional, if the fouls were committed at the other end nobody will say undeserved penalty

Rohr Intensifies Search For New Number 10 For Super Eagles, Targets Russia Based Anjorin

The quest to have a playmaker for the senior national team of Nigeria has pushed coach of the team Gernot Rohr all the way to Russia to make quick checks on former Chelsea teen midfielder Faustino Anjorin.

Anjorin now plays in Russia for Lokomotiv Moscow after failing to stamp his authority in the first team of Chelsea since making his European debut in the Champions League against Russian side Krasnodar in 2020.

His first involvement with the first team of Chelsea came in 2019 when he played in the Carabao Cup against Grimsby Town. So highly rated is he that he has played for England at every junior level up to U19.

A senior team bow doesn’t look certain for the 19 year old instead it is Nigeria who are now keen on having him in their squad where a playmaker is badly needed as the Super Eagles shape up for the business end of the World Cup qualifiers.

He is eligible for Nigeria through his father who has taken a step further by introducing his son to some officials of the Nigerian team putting him on the radar of Rohr, who is keen on having more options in midfield.

It’s still very early to say he is having a good season in Russia but he has so far played in six games this season with four coming in the league and two in the Europa League, where he scored on his debut.



I don’t believe this jare, Rohr have never been eager to get a new number 10. When he was eager for a new keeper we saw how he went after Uzoho and okoye

Samson Siasia first eagles job was a rescue one after Austin Eguavoen failed and second eagles job too was also a rescue one after Sunday Oliseh lost control of the team.

Siasia was never appointed as substantial eagles coach but always call to save already sinking team.
errrm, the first one wasn’t exactly a sinking ship, eguavoen left at 2 games 3 points

Did he tell you he will not get a job? I am telling you Finidi George is bigger than Enyimba. Steve Cooper gets to coach Swansea, when a top grade coach like Finidi gets to coach Enyimba.

You think they can't get local jobs? They can do that. Enyimba is not where Finidi should be.

Finidi will definitely be a better tactician than Rhor but he gets to coach Enyimba, while Rhor coaches Super Eagles.

Does not change Amunike's impact.

None of the coaches were sabotaged like Amunike's team. Not even Siasia.

Do you know what it means to go to a world cup without kits?

Embassy had to buy clothes to wear. This was not just food.

They won the world cup and got only N20,000 each.

And the suffering continued in their U17.

You can pretend but Amunike deserves respect.
was so bad that Sia1 had to go beg his state Governor the late DSP alams who gave them 7mill, even that money the NFF still claimed he should give it to them. You can’t use poverty story to defend amunike because all our youth teams experienced it

Siasia would not deliver if dump on a swampy pitch because his game is strictly on expansive passing football. It is not magic. Even Guardiola will suffer. That is why when Barcelona was to play Real Madrid when Mourinho was manager, he told the grounds man not to cut the grass for two weeks and Barcelona lost.
story, the swampy pitch affected both teams

You are just writing story.

If you want insight I will give you.

I will use Van Gaal to explain. It is about values. Van Gaal coached AZ to 13th position in the season and the club sacked him. The fans, being tactically saavy protested and asked for his reinstatement.

The club bent to the fans call because the fans saw progress and reemployed Van Gaal. The next season, the magical happened Van Gaal won the league with AZ.

Preliminary results is not the thing but over time you can tell.

Gavi alone will tell you something. The youngest player to play for Spanish national team. A team that has boasted of youngsters like Pique, Fabregas, David Silva, Thiago Alcantara, Isco, Portillo, Xavi, Iniesta etc.

Yet this young boy is not just the youngest but is so brilliant for the team.

If you think, you will know that this man they call Koeman is special.

Not just to shout results. After this international break, I have made up my mind to take time and watch him closely.

My critique of Rohr is that after time, no pattern with the team. It won't happen under Amunike.
go to viewing center and tell this story to Barca fans while Bayern is knacking them 5 if them no go pursue you comot

Amunike was sabotaged all through. It is people that don't go into the details that will scream did not qualify. Amunike went through hell from U17 to U20. Being owed, no welfare for players etc.

He built the team for years on a passing football ground and then the NFF took them to a poor pitch during the rainy season to sabotage him.

So people like you can write he did not qualify.

Those who knows the impact of that man will not talk like this. That team played over 50 games, almost winning all and lost won. Leave Amunike is too much whether you like it or not.
Siasia saw the Devil with our youth teams but he always delivered. All those ones are excuses. No Nigerian team coach whether male or female have ever had it easy

How can you call Koeman a crap manager. Did you watch his Ajax team with Sneijder, Van Der Vaart, Zlatan and Steven Pienaar.

Having a difficult time is normal in football but that does not make a tactician crap.

Diego Simeone got River Plate relegated. Does that make him crap. Your tactical history is a testament.

How do you think Pedri and Gavi blew in the scene?

Do you know Koeman's history?
Deboer is the crap Koeman is average, I know all about Koeman and the only reason he got the Barca job is because ‘former player’ and the only reason he hasn’t been fired is because sapa hold Barca. No sensible big club will hire him, do you think it’s by coincidence his previous two clubs are Everton and Southampton where he was sacked after dreadful results ?

If there’s any local coach that deserves any form of praise it is Samson Siasia, he has done soooo much for our football. He showed us 2005 wasn’t a fluke by doing it again in 2008 and 2016. Amunike couldn’t even qualify us for the African U-20 tourney by losing to Sudan in Nigeria, how is that different from Rohr loosing to car?

Tell me how Rohr is tactically better when you guys are up and down screaming for a tactician to support Rohr.

In your statement, you literally said nothing, that is why you had to pay it with you want to hear word.

Very simple brief, Amunike played and trained under the La Masia tactical system. A coach with versed knowledge of the most superior tactical art in the game today.

Despite that, Amunike kept building his tactical knowledge with repeated courses.

There is a reason why FIFA made him one of the members of their technical committee for the growth of football.

Even Rohr knows he is not Amunike's mate tactics.
this man here trained at Lamasia, Deboer played for Barca Ajax and Holland, all 3 are proponents of total football but he’s a crap manager. A good coach have little to do with where he received his football education

With all the CV, Roohr lacks behind tactically and in knowledge of players and you know it.
we can only go back and forth on that, there’s no definite evidence to back up that claim. My own is when the NFF want to replace the German they should get the best and not get emotional by willingly giving the job to an ex international

I got your point and mind you i rate foreign coaches ahead of our own but talking shit of our own just damn too much here.

Iheanacho was dropped for poor goal scoring with national team and Onuachu was banging goals for national team then abi?

My man I will never dropped Iheanacho with suoerb goals ratio with eagles then for Onuachu and tell me what Onuachu played at afcon.

Why Rohr not gamble with Iheanacho.This was one of the decisions that make me zero my mind on Rohr.

Westerhof gambled with Amuneke against Zambia afcon 94 final and it paid off

Westerhof gamble with Rufai at Afcon 94

Bonfrere Jo gamble with Tijani against South Africa Afcon 2000 semis.

Bonfrere Jo took unfit Amuneke to Atlanta 96 cos he knew what he can do and what happened in the final he scored the winning goal.

i rate Iheanacho higly when it comes to goal conversion.Iheanacho will never missed those Osimehn chances against CAR in Yaounde.
Onuachu scored in a friendly against Egypt few weeks before the tournament plus his club form was decent it would have been unfair to drop him for Kelechi

even for NT Nacho’s form had seriously dipped , didn’t score in about a year. I bet you Westerhof would have dropped him quickly

Them Tony Harris people. Stories about how Gabriel Reuben made the 2014 WC squad are still fresh in my memory.

Ahead of a 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, erstwhile Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi named a squad featuring a few new faces. While most observers were pleased and eager to catch a glimpse of the likes of Kingsley Madu, William Troost-Ekong and Anderson Esiti (quite the mixed bag of debutants, considering what has come after), there was consternation over the inclusion of little-known 19-year-old forward Okechukwu Gabriel.

Now, the apoplexy was entirely justifiable, and on its heels suspicion quickly followed. Water FC is an academy run by CEO Nureni Makanjuola, a FIFA and NFF-licensed football intermediary who doubled as the agent of former international Michael Babatunde. It will be recalled that Babatunde, who is now unattached, was a surprise inclusion in the Super Eagles squad to the 2014 World Cup and emerged as a key player, starting two of Nigeria’s four matches in Brazil.

One out of these 5teams will miss out on the WC fiesta, to be upset by any of the following below
CIV/Cameroon

Mali/Uganda
Tanzania/Benin
