Nja players are fulls. Too much money spend into this so called Super Eagle and football in Nigeria. Spend money to support combat sports instead of football. I believe in one man medal. Instead of fourth footballers fighting for one Single medal. Nigeria Sports minister should develope Sports to all level in Nigeria. Please maintain the training facilities. National stadium suru-lere Lagos state. Thanks
Those Nigerian players needs to be flog man. Infact secondary school kids play better than them. Yobo should retire while the new face OGUDE is another AGBERO of the team. Super chicken going no where.
Lovely Dearest Burkina Faso.... Etallons ya but!!!!!!!!! You deserve it...
Welldone Super Eagles...A win could have been better but the draw is good.. The officiating is one sided and against Nigeria. I watched the match and i can honestly state that we played aginst 12 people on the field. CAF i hope you will review the tape...This is not good for our football development.
Nigeria is only playing based on past glory, the team has no patern, they just played any how, no team work, no direction, no strenght, and above all no technical in put from the coach. They just sat down as if something was tied to their waist. Keshi has no idea at all,not even looking fit for coaching job, too much apu.
wao!!! this is unbelievable , even Burkina Faso... playing draw whit our super eagles ?. please you guys need to keep it up , no matter what happened we still have hope I LOVE MY COUNTRY 9JA.
5 draws and 1 win/loss so far in the competition.
Nigerian defenders behaved like Barbers today. Very discouraging! :-(
the centre refree was a fraud,17 fouls aginst 16 fouls with 4 yellow cardsn and a red to the Nigeria side and no single card given to Burkinafaso!oh they all speak French like he does ,dubious man from Algeria!
Oh Nigeria, what a pity :-(
Onyeka Nsofor, what is there to be proud for in Nija?
Nigeria we hail thee. What a shame! Even Burkina faso! Better when they go out in the first round, and save the people from unnecessary High Blood Pressure.
Super Eagles should know that it is not over until it's over. The attitude of thinking you have won a match when the final whistle has not been blown should be checked and players should have full concentration till the end of the match. To many fans,this is a disappointing start but the players should try their best to redeem their image if they want to go far in this tournament. No team should be underated. Wishing Super Eagles good success in their subsequent matches.
playing old trafford fergie time lol
This is not encouraging why cant these boys hold unto the end seeing that they just have few seconds to end of this match
So far Nigeria are the only team who play with soem style and approach play. South Africa were disgrace as they can't even string two passes in front of home crowd. Relying on Physical strength has always been the beauty of ACN but some teams have gone too far with football going back to 19th century. I will wait and see how Ivory Coast play and how some North African giants play. But Egypt and Tunisia had spoiled my views with their cup winning displays in recent years.
One appalling match after another, don't watch this #$%$. How do players from the best teams in Europe come together in this awful tournament and look like pub teams?
