So far, Nigeria has not recorded a single goal in the MTN Africa Cup of Nations (Ghana 2008) football tournament and is about to witness an early exit unless of course they are able to beat Benin and beat them with a wide goal margin. To proceed, Cote d’Ivoire must at least draw with Mali.
This match decides, to some extent, whether Nigeria stays or is knocked-out of this competition. So far, Nigerians have understandably not been satisfied with the poor performance of the Super Eagles.
After 45 mins of play, Nigeria 0 – Benin 0. What a poor performance by the Super Eagles.
After full time, Nigeria managed to qualified for the Quater Finals of the tournament after beating Benin 2 – 0 and Cote d’Ivoire beat Mali 3 -0. Nigeria now faces Ghana coming Sunday.
What are your thoughts?
I think a radical rethink needs to take place. The only reason we were able to score those 2 goals against Benin was they didn’t come at us like Ghana undoubtedly will in front of their home crowds.
I can’t remember the last time I saw such a negative Nigerian team. Kanu looked more animated on the bench than our coach did. 2 goals in three matches is unlike Naija.
Wicked post, great to read something interesting 🙂
