Sad Day for Nigerian Football!

Mikel & Essien

It was a sad day for Nigerian Football yesterday as the ‘not-too-Super Eagles’ were blown out of the sky by the Black Stars of Ghana in a friendly match at Griffin Park, Brentford in London . The match ended with a 4-1 scoreline, goals came from Laryea Kingson, Sulley Muntari, Junior Agogo and substitute Asamoah Frimpong while Taiye Taiwo scored a consolatory penalty.

It was a lacklustre performance from the Eagles to say the least and the Black Stars were absolutely outstanding. The Eagles back four of Yobo, Abbey George, Obodo & Taiwo were easily breached. The midfield was nowhere although there were a few flashes of brilliance from John Mikel Obi. The attack was blunt and the few runs of Utaka were not well utilized. In short, we do not have a team!

Where do we go from here? Berti Vogts certainly has his work cut out for him.

  1. My ghanaian neighbour actually called me to find out if I was watching the match and to rub the score in. All I could say was that Liverpool FC won the Champions Cup in the last minutes of the match in Turkey some years ago when all had given up hope and that the Eagles could achieve the same feat. Alas it wasnt meant to be and I ate my words.

  2. I feel you, Calabar gal. I actually thought along the lines o a miracle but more like the “Miracle of Damman” but alas…it wasn’t to be our lucky day.
