    Only time they ever met Nigeria won 0-1.

    I can see Nigeria pulling a shocker off after an inspiring loss to Argentina.

    We should let them play ball and kill them on the counter.
    Parking the bus won't really work vs france which doesn't thrive on possession, which is why i'm really optimistic for once

    @Jesse they are: they skipped one training session already and might skip another. But although i have literally zero info i bet each of the bonuses controversies for african countries is due to corrupt federations a lot more than the player's greed. I mean I lost count of how many controversies ghana, cameroon and nigeria have been through already.

    I heard Nigeria's players are complaining about bonuses again. They seem to self-destruct in a classically African fashion. I'd back France to win this: they have an obvious surplus of quality and they are more focused, it appears.

    All nt's pay their players. Honour is a rare thing in football. The problem with the african nations seems lack of organization, maybe corruption. So it gets out of hand and this happens.

    Am hoping for an upset. Don't think it's too unlikely either. Musa and Enyeama to be their best players.

    Sakho is out apparently. Guy's a red card waiting to happen. SO maybe it's a good thing he doesn't play against Nigeria.
