Nigeria Vs Ghana: Can We Beat The Host Country?

The fact that they are the host country is just another reason why they will be hard to beat. But primarily, the Ghanaian team now has the confidence that Nigeria is a team they can beat judging by recent results from games played by the two teams.

I resolve to a 1-0 loss to the Ghanaians.

am still amazed as to why people are not saying anything about the level of play of most of our players.dont you think that if a Maurinho were to be the coach of Nigeria with Taiye Taiwo on the left full back position and misfit Nwaneri as the right full back and a bunck of 23 players without a playmaker,what would have happened?i am not totally absolving vogts of the blames,but dont you think the present crop of players we have can only give out what they have in terms of their creativity and skills(talent).i mean you cant compare Eguaveon's or Ben Iroha's or Celestine Babayaro's creativity with either Taiwo's or Nwaneri's.Although one or two of them have been outstanding(Shittu & Osaze).my beleif is that first,we need a trainer/coach/technical adviser or whatever they call they call them to help us discover real talents that can wear our national colours and until then we can start talking of commitment and tactical approach to matches.That lies the present strenght of Cote d'ivoire. I seriously beleive we cant have that kind of team to represent us in 2010,because it is usually a long process.remember it took Westerhoff 4 years to acheive that.so Nigerians should never think a fire brigade approach will bring out the desired result lset we willalways rely on mother luck every time.

WORTHY MENTION TO SHITTU ABEG. . . THE BOY TRY.

AND I THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO BE A LIABILITY

ASSUMING OSAZE HAD PASSED THAT BALL TO HIM ONE TIME RATHER THAN GO FOR THE RED CARD

IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN DIFFERENT.

Exactly! That was the first thing I said too when I saw the highlights.  The other guy was wide open all by himself.

In my opinion, Eagles stepped up their game against Ghana. I think they played well. In football anything can happen, particularly in a close tie between old rivals. It is not the first time a 10 man team is beating 11 players side. We should not also forget that the black stars of Ghana is a world cup team that has been together for sometime, same with CIV. Supereagles is building, and the experience from the tournament should serve as a foundation to build a solid eagles.

The super eagles that went to USA 94 was built over 5yrs by clemence westerhof. I do not see anything wrong with Berti Vogts. He is trying to build a new team. He re-invited Ejide, brought in Etuhu, Omorogbe, Uche, Nsofo(from Siasia U-23). Before settling for these players, he tested many others such that he had little time to blend the new players with the old ones as well as getting the entire team to play to a pattern.

The next step is for Nigerian to scount for natural wingers and more of young players to complement this team. Many friendly matches should be played to better blend the players. If Nigeria had defeated Ghana, the team's performance would have again be improved in the Semis.  

Football is like that. Don't forget that France did not score a goal in Korea/Japan 2002.

Yobo doesnt play like a Centerback and Nwaneri was a fishling in the deep blue sea.it was obvious,The ghana coach was even 2slow to make that change.I saw Nwaneri was lost from the 3rd minute when he was carded for nervousness.

I dint feel hurt in our performancecos we were bound to go out sometime,because from the beginning i knew we dint have good players,I was just hoping we could do the team work thing like EgyptIts only CIV that can beat them,i wont miss that semi-final.

Its jus painful that we have the worst coach in the tournament,I hope 2 understand more on the contract d illitrate NFA has with him.

NFA is d main problem,most of the other white coaches in africa have good african experience but 9ja go different na fool them go employ because of the bribe he will give them.

As for me i have arsenal 2 go back to,my mind was half in Ghana2008,except that i love watching Egypt.

the guys were not as hungry for victory as the Ghanians. Nwaneri as a flop, watch the dramatist draman perform drama right in front of him till the ball entered.

what a shame. I think they should leave the team intact. they need to readjust the defence .

That is what i call patriotism on the part of The Ghanian players. I mean your team is one goal down, u guys equalise, then your main center-back and captain of the team is sent off. Still you manage to beat a team that has more numbers than you on the pitch. at a point i thot it was our team that was one man down. That is what being a hero of your country is all about. Whaqt was obinna looking at while draman stood waiting for support before the second goal? Our team needs to be disbanded and re-shuffled. May the soul of Yemi Tella rest in peace, i'm very sure he would have sat up and groomed those U-17 kids to finesse. Such appalling players we have.

Its a just results I have said earlier on this forum that we (this team) are not 'hungry for victory' hence this outcome but I would suggest Nigeria to allow the boys (& coach) to remain together in order to concentrate on the upcoming world cup campaign because any change in this team might lead to lack of understanding among the team and we all know there's little time for proper preparations! So better luck next time guys!

How can you cheer nonsense? I have never seen such a tactical misnomer in my entire life; one man up and then defending a draw awaiting a penalty. Claude Le Roy is sure a better coach and the Ghanaians and indeed other African countries are ready to go the extra mile.

I think the Super Eagles biggest problem is the supporters club. They get too emotionally attached to the match and fail to cheer the team. Look at the match against Benin. Their supporters kept on cheering despite the fact that they were never going to make it to the next round and the Super Eagles were trashing them 2-nil.

But with our supporters, its always different. We saw it against Cote D'Ivoire after the first goal. Then against Mali, when it looked like we won't go past the group stages. I mean, they are supposed to keep the spirit alive like their predecessors did in Atlanta.

Nobody should be sacked. Everytime our players get accustomed to a new coach and he looses the next thing is everybody calling for his head. Have we never stopped to think of what the different coaches and different tactics and coaching style is doing to our players.

The Super Eagles performance was not so bad, just unlucky in finding the back of the net. If we admit, for a moment, we all thought the Super Eagles would win, and that's because they tried their best under the circumstances.

Speaking of yesterdays match, I am lost for words. One red card, one penalty, and yet. Ghana one man down and look at how the team played.

I still insist that Vogts Wagen should be sacked.

Congrats super eagles, They played their best match so far in the tournament against Ghana in the First half and Frist 10min of the second half.

That match was lost on technicality. The Ghanaian coach was fantastic. Look at what he did, his team goes one man down, he immediately makes some really good changes, and our boys just could not keep up. Draman & kingston was all it took to turn the ghanain team around.

The good thing is that we now know that we do not have a team. Alot of these boys should and would be dropped. New talents have also been found, and some of them still need some fine tuning.

We really need to find strikers. Boys that can shoot and not miss. Taye, Yobo, Danny boi and Nwaneri Played well in defense, Nsofor, Uche and Osaze played well on the wings. the rest should be flogged and relieved of their jerseys.

One naija. Dry bones shall rise again, but not this year.

I honestly do not know why we are being so hard on these guys, in all the comments i read only 1 or 2 peps gave any form of encouragement to the eagles. This match against ghana was 1 of our better performances if not the best so far in this tournament.

We lost our concentration in defense twice and the ghananians took full advantage on both occasions, and we missed the chances

we created.

I dont feel we shud sack vogts cos will just be startin all ova again.

There was som steady improvement under Vogts

1st game- loss 2nd game- draw 3rd-win 4th-very narrow loss

He also discovered som very good players in SHITTU, UCHE and EJIDE.

So PLS give vogts time and so he can build a formidable team.

Besides that REF was kinda PROghana(afterthought).

IVORY COAST ALL THE WAY.

wow I have no words for your ignorance. You are one of those faceless and nameless people on the internet who's power is in their keyboard. All you've been doing is talk smack and rubbish.

It was just a game, no need for name calling or such infantile behavior that you are exhibiting. Nigeria lost to a better team. The coaching was terrible and the defense was nothing to write home about. I mean that second goal,

But ya back to you Sweet tea, just stop being immature and silly with your comments. Except ofcourse you are a little pre-adolescent boy.

I dont have your time so dont expect another response. I'm not even going to read this thread anymore so there.

This is not a matter of local vs foreign coach. It is the matter of A COACH. Nobody gives a damn where the coach comes from as far as u are competent. Ghana, Ivory coast et al are all tutored by foreigners. Even the English hired a foreign coach. That Berti Vogts failed does not translate to a judgement on all foreign coaches. After all the best spell we had in football was engineered by a foreigner.

The NFA , just like other parastatals in Naija, is a colossal failure. Sani Lulu should pack his bag and go home , of course with Berti. I dont know much about coachiong but I thot the logical thing to do when u are in a knock out stage and playin g against io men is to make the extra man count. I personally thot he should have brought in an extra attacker with instructions to help out in the midfield.

Save for Obodo, Oruma, Ayila and Odiah who were absent due to obvious reasons, that's the best team Nigeria coulda emerged with.

All the departments were duly represented, unfortunately, we have overrated individuals who cannot play together as a team, who cannot fire from outside the 18 yard, who shoot at goal like they're poor in bed. . .

and above all, a retired coach receiving his pension, courtesy of Glo who felt they could do us a favour by hiring him.

Since 2000, few will argue that Nigeria's nation's cup performance has always been below par, just a strip of luck here and there and some individual plays. You hardly see 6 to 9 tip taps resulting in goals, no way.

Remember the team that went down 1-0 to Germany in Germany, remember the team that went down 1-0 to England @ Wembley? Above all, remember the team that lost to Italy in the USA - that is the team called the SUPER EAGLES.

Someday, the chickens will grow into fowls, then the fowls and with some genetal mutation, into eaglets and eagles, maybe next year, maybe next decade, maybe next life, but until then,

Home sweet home.

Its time we look at the real issues , is the NFA made up of competent people ? NO , did Nigeria really need a foreign coach ? NO , where lies the hunger and patriotism of all the characters that run our football i.e. officials (scramble over estacodes) and players (playing on conditions of pre-determined match bonuses) see ya

Clearly the worst eagles team in Naija history. Mind you it is the same set of players that couldn't qualify us for the world cup.

The team only has one player throughout the tournament, DANNY SHITTU!

To all Chelsea fans, Mikel is not a world class player.
