    We all know the US/Ghana fight is a non-starter. The US will need a basket to pack all the goals Ghana will dump in their net.

    But is the Nigerian team worth talking about? Are they strong?

    The US did have a German coach. The second goal was well executed. It was textbook and the execution was perfect. I know Germany will leave the group but the second place is dicey. Cote d'Ivoire, on the other hand, Drogba is king!

    ...well, I was going to watch the Nigeria/Iran game. I swear to God I was settling down to watch it,.....then I saw the naija player with the pink shoes on green socks. I walked away from the TV set at that point. Pink shoes??!!! on green color socks?????!!!!! abi na purple shoes sef. Who is advising these guys on color coordination? I feel terribly ashamed.

    what Nigeria probably needs is a home grown national team?
    trying to coordinate all these egos in a short amount of time and getting them to play together is a herculean task.
    i'm pretty sure there are guys in Nigeria right now who can play and dribble circles around this "national" team.


    meanwhile, is anyone going to talk about Cameroon?

    This has been said for decades. Until something is foreign, we do not respect it in Naija.
    Why? Haven't they embarrassed themselves enough?

    True, they played better... never seen a Nigerian team look so weak, hopefully it's a one-off thing.

    For a team that's yet to concede a goal, I'd say we're still in good shape. The tactics of falling down so easily and wasting time during the Bosnia match was pathetic though. Wednesday match with Argentina should be a cracker, and from what Argies have shown so far, I think Super Eagles have what it takes to compete against them.
