Super Eagles’ Absence from International Friendlies Roll Call

Again I have just been demoralized by Nigerian Football Association’s ineptitude and lackadaisical attitude to duty.

I woke up this morning and tuned the TV to SKY news and on the sport news segment, I saw the Ghanaian National Team scoring an equalizer in a friendly game against Australia. The game ended 1-1.

I don’t usually get so sad when I watch a European team .But when fellow Africans are making such progress, I breakdown not because I detaste their progress but because my own team with all its acclaimed potentials is rotting away from inaction.

Ever since the Super Eagles got knocked out of the Last African nations Cup in Egypt, the team has not been involved in any serious test till date. Yet we keep living under the illusion of being highly rated by FIFA.

It is worthy to note that no team has ever exhibited this kind of approach and achieve anything.

Probably because we keep getting lucky to play teams whose respect for the Super Eagles wouldn’t let them take us down.

After the bitter lesson of Japan Korea 2002, we all thought everyone was going to get up and do what he/she was supposed to do. For where? We rather went on to employ the same approach and got knocked out by Angola for the only ticket for the world Cup and so we all watched the Mundial from the sidelines.

Who will talk to the NFA? What do we do to them? Do we all match to the glass house and live there with them? Naija people, I am at a lose here .Wetin we go do ? We can’t continue like this.
Maybe we will match to the Glass House and kneel down under the sun begging for friendlies for our darling team. It just might work. Please make a suggestion at the forum?
