Which European Team Can Eagles Beat?

Gone,surely,are the days when Super Eagles were feared not only in Africa but thruout the world. Then bookmakers will think twice before predicting Argentina as favourites pre-Nigeria-Argentina clash. Then Nigeria was reverredas being in the same class with countries like Argentina,Spain etc. Pre-match analysts will easily give 'the favourites' tag to Nigeria when they faced average European countries like Bulgaria,Greece. That was how highly rated the Eagles were then.

Suddenly,like a pack of cards,all the glory began to crumble. They totally lost reckoning in world football,and pitiably in Africa too. Countries like Angola,Gabon,Sierra Leone,Rwanda,Kenya,Niger,Lesotho and other hitherto minnows began to have gut to say they can beat Nigeria anytime they were grouped with Eagles in one qualifiers or the other.In recent time countries like Angola,Gabon,Lesotho,Sierra Leone,Uganda have either beaten the Eagles or drew with them or Eagles eking an uninspiring victory against them.

But today,with the Uche brothers marshalling the resurgence of Eagles,I believe these Eagles will fly again.

I believe the current Eagles can hold,if not beat, a country like France,England,Sweden etc. Pls Spain and Holland and even Italy are not included in my etc

With adequate preparation and determination Eagles should hold its own against any European Power house.

Beating France recently is no fluke.

Drawing with Tunisia was a failure, what an irony.

The expectations and results of matches sometimes varies with people's desires.

The Tunisia result as hard earned it was achieved was not considered decent because the expectations was an outright victory.

Eagles please no fail us in September to win the home game against the Tunisians

i know that before the fifi confederation cup in south africa, no one would give it to egypt over italy and no one will dream of usa humbling the much talked about spain. the so called unable boys of eagles were able to beat france in a frendly recently maybe they are not europeans.

i hope with these few points of mine, i v been able to creat an impression that our eagles can beat any team on a good day.

Where were those idiotic English players when England could not qualify for USA 1994 and Euro 2008? Have you ever heard of Germany missing a major tournament?

See this for yourself. Japan korea world cup germany Finalist England Q-finals

2006 World cup Germany 3rd place England Q-Finals.

2008 Euro cup. Germany 2nd place England DNQ

Can you mention how many tournaments in the last 40 years where England surpassed Germany?

Bavaria's record is better than the whole of UK So don't even bother comparing England and Germany.

Nigeria at its lowest Ebb with onigbinde as coach, Opabunmi as striker, Okoronkwo, Sodje and Udeze as defenders, Obiorah as midfielder and Akwuegbu as striker. England just managed to force us to a draw.

Nigeria's best showing in a football game was probably at Wembley when jay Jay Okocha made those English players look like idiots. If not for pity we would have spelt RUMPESTILTSKIN on that night at Wembley.

Naija would beat England anyday

Any team can beat any team anyday, the big question is what is the possibility, remember that even 5% chance is still a probability.

Dis one wey people they call Eagles na Chickens.

They can narrowly win Estonia, Belarus, Moldova, Latvia and Cyprus country if:

(1) The referee is from Aba

(2) 1st Linesman is from Abaji

(3) 2nd Linesman is from Abakaliki

(4) The sitting Referee is from Abraka.

And, Niger-Delta militants becomes our Supporters Club.

When one big trouble lands on one head. Other small wahala go come dey make mess of am.

Dont think there is any european team for now that Eagles can beat not even our under 17.

But, i wish the slavery mentality of our players change and really put all to have a better future

not only for nigeria, but also for themselves. Torres still dedicated to Spain at 85 million pound offer,

Why are Eagles Celebrating this there 10 million to 15million mark. Are they confirming slavery?

And some people have been talking about patriotism? Are YOU patriotic? I doubt it because if you were you would support Nigeria no matter what happened, even if they lost 20-0 to Lesotho, you would still proudly wear your Nigerian jersey and go watch the Super Eagles! Bunch of hypocrites, that's what all of you are. How many of you have ever gone to the stadium to watch any National side play? Just look at the Premiership, for example, despite the fact that Derby County were losing almost every match people still went to the stadiums to watch them. That's called patriotism! And our National teams won't succeed until all you guys start caring a little bit more! How will the players play well if before the match everyone is already saying that they are too lazy or unpatriotic? Hah, did you even know that Yakubu was one of the players that used to admonish other players if they arrived at training 5 minutes late? He was always there on time and gave his best. Unfortunately, the Nigerian midfield is not the same as Everton's midfield and that is not Yakubu's fault. He normally hangs around upfront waiting for a killer pass from maybe Arteta before slotting in a goal. No such passing is available in Nigeria and this is because we don't have any central midfielders anymore. Olofinjana, Mikel, Ayila Yusuf are all defensive midfielders!

With 90% of the people on this thread not having any faith in Nigeria, how are we gonna beat anybody? Don't you guys realise that the fans are the necessary 12th man on the pitch? Just look at our match against Equatorial Guinea. The stadium was half empty! Disgraceful!

What nonsense are you guys talking about? Saying Nigeria can't beat some European teams like Latvia? That's very funny to me. Do you honestly believe if the likes of Mourinho, Scolari, Arigones, Hiddink, et al were the Manager of Nigeria we couldn't beat any country? Please!! I don't have anything against Amodu but football is not a game of individuals anymore. It doesn't matter if you have the best players (Portugal, couldn't win Euro 2008 despite having Ronaldo!) in the world what matters is the tactics you employ. After all, in the just concluded Euro 2008, how many big names can you point at in the German team? Apart from Ballack and Lehman (the hopeless goalkeeper!) and maybe Podolski? Just look at Turkey! Nigeria has more well known players than Turkey. Tactics is very important. With good tactics and proper team selection Nigeria can thrash anyone. Just look at our upcoming players, Lukman Haruna, Victor Anichebe, Macaulay Chrisantus, Rabiu Ibrahim (the next Jay Jay Okocha!), King Osanga, Mikel, Taiwo and the Uche brothers.

All of you on this thread obviously know nothing about football!

Sincerely,I believe no European team can embarrassingly defeat the Eagles. Forget about their performance in recent games. If not for Uche last-minute penalty loss,Nigeria could have had a historic victory over highly rated Mexico(America). Switzerland lost to Eagles on their home soil. Austria,having fully prepared for Euro, drew with Eagles on their home soil. Yes,Australia beat us.

Our players are also world class. Martins,Mikel,Yak,Uche,Taye Taiwo,Kanu,Yobo would easily make 23 man list of any European country, including France,Spain,Germany and Italy, and England and some of them can even make the first-11 in these countries.

Yes,heaven will not fall if Taiwo faces Torres or Martins/Yakubu faces Canavaro. They have faced them many times in their club assignments. Recall what Uche did to Canavarro in the La Liga two seasons ago. Recall how Uche ran ring around reigning World FOTY, Canavarro two seasons ago. Recall how Yak,then at Boro,embarrassed the highly rated Terry,3 seasons ago. So our players are up to the task on a good day.

Taiwo faced Torres in last year CL, and even scored. Henry,Anelka,Torres, etc are not new to Yobo.

So anyday,I believe Eagles' chance against any of these top European countries is 50-50.It can swing to any side.

The Super Chickens sorry Super Eagles can no defeat any team @ Euro 2008 cause those Eagles boyz are not good let us accept that fact let's not be sentimental.

If that Spanish team meets Nigeria the match would end 7-0 in their favour cause you can not compare the team of 1998- 2008 its a long distance they are bunch of unpatrotic guys.

Or is it because they managed to beat Equitorial Guinea, Sierra Leone, south Africa, Look at the scoreline you'll only know a ghood team by the number of goals scored against a weak team if the Nigerian was good we should have trash the likes of South Africa, Sierra Loene, Equitorial Guines. not managing to beat them it should not be that way.

The way forward the Eagles should show more committment and for the GUY WHO WANTS TO COMMIT SUICIDE" I beg you don't cause you are on a suicide mission if you want to BET WITH YOUR LIFE. I cannot even bet a KOBO on the Eagles that hey would beat Angola talkless of Spain or Germany.

On our best day, we can beat FAROE ISLANDS on their worst day. Mind you, the country has a population of just 48,000. 7 of their national team members are part-time footballers and they don't have enough man on reserve bench and during training they cant get up to 22 players to play 11 vs 11!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Andorra and Latvia are not even sure.

So Senegal would beat France, Cameroun would beat Argentina, Cameroun would beat Brazil because they had one fortunate win.

If you are saying anything is possible then Agege United can beat Spain. Its possible but what is the probability? less than 4%
