i dont agree o my brotha, the boys that played yesterday played with a lot of determination, they gave a good acct of themselves, its just a pity that the coachin crew were too short sighted to notice that yak was tiring. the boys played well, lets not forget that we played against the hosts, and not just any host national side - ghana! abeg make we talk tru; dem try

when ghana got that red card, i thot (my opinion of course) that wld hav been the right time to make a few changes that will ensure that the ghanaians defend till they finally collapse.

i'll say kudos to every player on the pitch yesterday (both sides). but that berti vogts doesnt have the nescessary leadership qualities to take aany team to any major competition (still my opinion)

Quite un4tunate, i may not really blame the super eagle squard

It was just that luck was not in our side

Some other games in the past are not as fantastic as what we just seen in Ghana but EAGLE won victoriously while everybody started praising them.

Anyway, there must be good lesson learnt by both individuals NFA & Eagle players

Anago never played well in this tournament, I think they need more training.

nutin dey happen. the guys played very well but they lost. its so sad that the day they played very well they lost. why was the ref like that. the penalty was something else, so what if uche wasnt brought down, would he have overlooked yak being fell in the box? so many dubious calls. why did he give only mikel a yellow card? why did the other guy that retaliated did not get any booking? anyway, that african soccer for u.

we just didnt take our chances and we didnt make use of the one man advantage.

above all, the guy tried

@ banderas,

well, they've just made a wrong choice of bailing naija out becuz if we meet 'em another 10 times in this tourney, they will not record a single victory! They have enough 2 beat ghana but an eagles side who have found a touch of CONFIDENCE. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Thank God we defeated Benin but the game played yesterday was not impressive. I got irritated when Berti Vogts was lifted yesterday. Has he not done anything spectacular. I wonder whether he is scared of Yakubu. Pls somebody help me beg Vogts to keep Yakubu on the bench. He is not a creative striker. We need a striker who can dance with the ball into the opponents box. A striker who can frustrate defenders and cause penalty. Yakubu is a cheap opportunist who fluks his goals. I rerfuse to accept he plays differently in Everton. Check out his goals in his club, they are all the same. We need a fire-power attacker to defeat Ghana

Ruudie, it was a risk for C-i as well. If they played for a draw, Mali could snatch a win and then lead the group, leaving CI to play Ghana. And NOBODY wants to play Ghana.

The ivorians obviously do not read the scripts of all the legendary, infamous mafiosos & c-baronés of criminal folklore. . . . . . The most vital being "take out ur most dangerous opposition @ first opportunity, 4 they can come back & haunt u @ a later time. . . . . "

why the jubilation and why were the carrying vogts up? why did we have to depend on c.i.v to do us a favour. to me, c.i.v will win this tournament, 3 goals against mali aint no joke

yakubu is just a useless striker, osaze is just my man of the match, he was every where.

my fear is that if we play like this against ghana, we r just coming home for good

At this moment, we have C-I leading mali by 2-0, and Naija being 1-0 up. If these scores remain, we'll go through, though God knows we don't deserve it.

the fifa highest rated in the country has gone 180 minutes without scoring and not up to 15 shots on target.

it will be unfair 4 d eagles to qualify. we need only quality teams in the next round.

no team does well with the kind of midfielders we have. it doesing seems like 9jerian team. every thing about the midfield was wrong. are there no good players in that country anymore? moreover what is yakubu doing there? this is not premiership that he gets in between the whites, these are his fellow blacks and ready for the challenge. he need dietician. too fat for the game.

Medrick,

You are very right,

We need good attacker who can do it right, if not, all efforts can be fruitless

'FIRE-POWER ATTACK' that is the word

@ Issue,

I beg to differ.Obodo has been played out of position since he's been playing for Nigeria. Many coaches tend to believe he can play the role of a playmaker. At the last AFCON he was deployed to play on the right side of midfield.

Since he's been playing in the top flight of Italian football he has always been used a holding midfielder. He sure must be doing sumthing right in that position for Lazio to want to cough out close to 7MM $ this January for the signature of a player whos just returning to fitness.

He played in the holding role in our 3rd place match against Senegal at the last AFCON and he did very well. For me he's a better choice than Olofinjana and Etuhu plus he comes with UCL and top flight experience. I would have taken him to the AFCON even if he just returned to fitness for a week jo,

no o i disagree, the u-17 boys i've seen playing would hav taken responsibility and tackled the livin daylight out of that solomaon kalou guy. such negligence can only be the product of tired legs. olofinjana had no business being in that team except as a spokesman and thats because he went to skool.

i pray say we go see beta eagles today.

I feel strongly that our problem is Berti Vogts. He took Okonkwo (the guy that came in for Kanu) to the Nations cup not because he was fantastic with his club nor for the country (judging by the friendly matches he played) but because they share the same agent. For God sake what is an agent doing on the bench.

he lacks everything a coach needs to have, vision, match reading, good substitutions and good press briefing. Utaka did nothing on the field and he did not remove him until the 70th minute. The Ivorien coach saw that that his right wing back was having problem he substituted him immediately. But our own coach has players of good pedigree like Nsofor, IK Uche, Richard, Etuku and he brought in mediocres like okonkwo and Makinwa (what were they doing in Ghana sef).

I don't see us doing anything than equaling our 1982 distrastrous outing if he continues with his manhandling of the team.
