Our main athletes like Okagbare, Amusan, Oduduru, are still in. The dopists are all inconsequential.

I haven't seen NFF's response. Balogun alluded to the fact that he was once punished for speaking plus Operanozie's treatment is well known
Their financial president or sth like that, responded.

Just pray they won't victimized balogun for speaking out.

It seems the money was made available to the NFF all this while they just own this guys for nothing. Wheneveri criticised this pinnick lead management i know what I am saying...i remembered how they frustrate amunike under 20 team and it goes affect their performance and that was how that great team fumbled

You can't be owning a coach his salary for months while you and the other executives get paid monthly.
The financial secretary was like "it's understandable for players to fume now and then, it's a COVID year, we are waiting for CBN". Long story short. NFF has no money. So sad. I suggest they go and beg oh.

Wow! shocked So South Africa didn't have massive problems during the apartheid era, according to u - which it also inherited in the democratic era? The non-white communities (80% of the population) were living heavenly lives with all the problems of today non-existent? Service delivery was equal for all and on the same standard as the white areas right? Electricity for all, water, no Bantu education, no police oppression and brutality of the black masses, no state sponsored attacks on vulnerable communities? I wonder who historicaly introduced the DOP system on the vineyards paying the labourers with just wine and making them and their future generations alcohol dependent, hmmmm?

With all that said I guess you're right man: whites are gods - they can never do no wrong. Blame it all on the blacks.
Then why are things not changing, post apartheid? You guys control the politics and military now. I never said whites are gods BTW. I just said generally, we are not making good decisions that move us forward.

Thats the truth on one side, the only reason why south Africa finds it easier to medal can be associated to their white population.

But on the contrary, how about black Americans who have from time immemorial broken boundaries winning medals in sports where white Americans can't dominate.

Can we get the stats on which race has won more medals for the USA is it the blacks or the whites. Then we can get a clearer understanding of whether it's a case of nature versus nature.

Say if blacks are assumed to be better at sports then why is the most populous black country struggling to win medals? We might be quick to point to maladministration and corruption as the bane of our inefficiency to adequately compete, thus, the latest example is the case where our track and field athletete are unsure whether they can even compete due to error bordering around simple covid testing and proper documentation. This can consequently affect their performance.

But I digress. The real question is have the blacks in America won more medals than the whites. And have the whites in south Africa won more medals than their black counterpart
I'm talking about Africans not blacks.

Men this olympics pa ro is going from bad to worse. Just read a World Athletics communique that 10 out of the 23 track and field athletes we took to Tokyo are ineligible to compete due to infractions surrounding non-compliance with out of competition testing. Athletes haven't been named yet but seriously praying it's not Ese Brume, Okagbare and Amusan embarassed
It can never be Okagbare. It won't even be Amusan.

U mean these guys? They've all won Olympic medals of all colours. Rio2016 (SA 10 medals cool / Nigeria 1 medal cry).

This is hilarious. So as a South African, you literally check out mentions of South Africa on Nairaland so you can reply? Cos I haven't seen you here before.

Anyways, I'm not interested a country penis measurement competition but what he implied is the truth. We Africans need to converge a conference to figure out where our problem is coming from.

South Africa's problems as a nation started when the Dutch settlers lost their grip over the country. Like, you guys literally stagnated. Crimes, drugs, police corruption e.t.c took over.

Same with Nigeria too. Our military leaders sat down and carefully dismantled the country post independence.

south Africa is the only African country that did not qualify to the knockout round of the Olympics. They finished last in a group that includes Japan, France and mexico. If we were the one in south Africa's group, does anyone think we might have performed better and even qualify for the knockout round?
South Africa don't give a damn about football. They prolly leading the whole Africa in number of medals.

had not read Leon stuff about the Nff, yet but it's understandable, I thought he said, they had not been paid bonuses since 2019, phew that two years ago,

And our basketball girls own are 2018, 3years ago, I don't know what's going on in nff lately as per bonus payment, honestly I dont
NFF does not have money. They don't generate money. The little they have, they spend it on very useless and foolish things. Its like they're yet to understand what is actually their responsibility. They'll use the little money they have to ship homebased players around the world then sit down waiting for a confused government to prepare stadiums for them and fund their outstanding bonuses.

The English FA generated about £10 million in profits last year (a COVID year), while our own NFF is heavily indebted to its own primary stakeholders. Any money that should be used be used to fly homebased players should be used to improve the league instead. With time the league itself will be become a cash cow.

Instead of waiting for the state government that most recently renovated a stadium, NFF can rent one stadium for four years at least, regrass it with FIFA standard synthetic and maintain it alone, to keep costs down, nobody should be using it for any other thing, I get very angry when I see football stadiums being used for crusades or political rallies.

If they don't have money, let them beg and solicit publicly, both at home and in the diaspora. Are they too proud to do that? In America, politicians beg and solicit funds, even Biden begged to sponsor his campaign. Nobody diverts state money for campaign. I'm sure there are many Nigerians that will donate something at least, if they can be financially transparent.

Not necessarily. Olympics is not as easy as it looks from TV, some countries are here celebrating first medal in 50-60 years. At least we haven't gotten to that point.

Also, we can't be comparing ourselves with countries like USA, China, GB, Canada, Australia, Germany e.t.c. These are very developed countries with so much talent, commitment and the money to train and motivate sports. They also benefit a lot from migration and brain drain. Nigeria still has a long journey to make.

I think both of you are right partly, cos it's still the duty of the government to provide training grants for them,

Blessing was vocal about it in the past before Delta state govt and her kit sponsor. Wede into it to provide training grant and sponsor her to those major meets
In terms of not providing kits, it can be blamed on the government. But in terms of Olympics preparation, it is majorly on the athlete.

Beyond that, some of our athletes should look beyond the government and seek sponsorships from third party. Nigeria for now, is hopelessly poor and corrupt. We cannot keep waiting for a government that will not deliver. We need concerned citizens to step up and show support. Leon Balogun said some stuff about NFF yesterday, very saddening. These things will not change easily so we need private sector involvement in terms of monetary support.

We fail to win a medal, government promise to start next Olympics preparation early, start training late for the Olympics, we fail to win medal again at the next Olympics, government again promise to start training early again. The cycle repeats itself again and again. Boya we should stop going if we can't win a decent amount of medal at the Olympics.
Stop saying what you don't know. Is it the government that prepares for Olympics or the players?

Many of those players have been preparing for a long time now. If you follow their social media accounts you'd know. People like Okagbare and others are professionals. They have a career and play round the year. Or do you think it is only at Olympics that they play all those games?

Assuming he's not shot on sight, after four months we would still be begging DSS to charge him to court. When that hurdle is crossed, producing him in the court they charged him to will be another prayer point for the next one year grin.

Since I was a boy and up until now that I am a man, i have never seen the Indian national team participate in any of the world cups.

As a football lover there is been a lot of stories surrounding the reason for which this is..

Some say it's because of the fetish activities the country did during matches with other countries therefore they were barred..

Pls sport lover come and shed light on this
You cannot continue believing childish lies. India has not qualified for world cup, same as Myanmar, Oman, Sri Lanka e.t.c. All those countries that have little football culture.

Though at some point in history, they were banned for playing without boots. But that was a very long time ago and had nothing to do with Nigeria. The ban has long ended, they just don't qualify

That referee looks familiar. The racism in women's soccer is obvious. They didn't even look at the foul.
I don't want to quickly put it down on racism. Because she pulled her leg back at some point to prevent injuries to the Zambian player. Nevertheless, considering how weak female soccer players knees are and their susceptibility to ACL and similar injuries, that foul should been used to set an example.

Lagos na still play nagrin. At the moment, Okagbare is nobody's mate. She's rated 5th in the world currently.

The gold na Frazer Pryce property. Then Asher Smith the USA girl too. On the world stage, Okagbare is still being underrated, but let's wait for it. Female track and field might surprise someone oh. If Okagbare can deliver that 10.63s again, she will hit gold definitely, but I doubt it. 10.7 will get her nothing less than silver.

FUTURE SUPER FALCON

Promising midfielder ASHLEY ANTONI AKPAN aka Ashanti is under the spotlight for A2Z today. Ashanti currently plays for Sunderland U18 in England after coming through the ranks at Chelsea.

The 17 year old is fast, dynamic and has the technical ability to operate either in midfield or at right back. Though her national allegiance is yet to be confirmed, she is however eligible to play for Nigeria �� , Poland �� and England ������� at National level.

With the recent influx of foreign based players to their country of origin, do you think Nigeria will be able to secure the addition of this youngster to the national team?
She's likely playing for Nigeria, unless England keeps a tight grip on her. She's been a proud Naija girl for sometime now.
