Tottenham
Last season was a rude realization for Tottenham Hotspur that their way of playing – so sophisticated and successful in England – did not count for quite as much in Europe. That was the story of one point from four games against Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen, as they looked everything that in England they are not: simplistic, predictable, too easy for...

The date 10 April 1994 remains the most significant day in the football rivalry between Nigeria and Zambia. It was the day Nigeria with all its stars and might crushed the hopes of a small nation with a big heart. A small man had carried that nation on his shoulders; significantly, as a figure of the hope that rose from a...
Super Eagles
The Nigeria Football Federation has officially announced the 23 Super Eagles players summoned for next Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Zambia in Uyo. And one name in the fairly unchanged squad list is Plateau United’s goaltender, Dele Ajiboye. The premier league champion seems to be enjoying the confidence that his NPFL counterpart, Ikechukwu Ezenwa has brought the Super Eagles technical...
Gernot Rohr/Super eagles
A23-man list with 5 on standby for Nigeria’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Cameroon was released earlier today and the only major talking point in there was Gernot Rohr’s sticking to his winning team.

Ghana, Nigeria, WAFU Nations Cup 2017, Black Stars, Home Eagles
On the day when it mattered most, one team showed they wanted the honors of the WAFU Nations Cup more and so went out and got it. Ghana poked holes in the Nigerian team, plucking the feathers off the Eagles as the result showed but also, if Salisu Yusuf had a game plan for that final, it did not work. Every...
Eagles, WAFU Nations Cup
When Americans use the expression, ‘Fall apart like a $2 suitcase’, they refer to situations where either a good argument, or someone who they expect to stand strong, disintegrates under the slightest of pressure. The home based Eagles fit well into that parameter following their 4-1 disintegration at Cape Coast in the Final of the 2017 WAFU Cup Final. But...
Nigeria
No one is suggesting we turn a blind eye to a talent who is capable and WILLING to contribute to the development or performance of the Nigeria national team. No one is against luring or convincing a player or athlete to represent the country. But in doing this "needful" we must expect the player to also show commitment, determination, hunger, desire...
West African Football Union (WAFU)
At the end of the two week battle in Ghana, between 8 teams in the West African Football Union, there is a $100,000 prize money dangling and like a Sherry Mango ripe for the plucking. Unlike any other time, two of the regions most successful teams; Ghana and Nigeria, will vie for the honor of being crowned best in West...
  TUNIS (FIBA AfroBasket 2017) - A win over FIBA AfroBasket 2017 hosts Tunisia on Saturday at Salle Omnisports de Rades, and Nigeria would win their second straight continental championship. Nevertheless, Nigeria's title aspirations will require a lot more than being the Afrobasket tournament's highest scorer team. Alex Nwora's team face a number of adversities, including a partisan crowd that is expected...
2017 AfroBasket, FIBA, The Lions, D'Tigers
If Ivory Coast and Cameroon were tough, playing five-time Champions Senegal could be the game that decides the 2017 AfroBasket winner - like it did in 2015. Senegal aren't just another competitor, they have been one of the most consistent teams on the continent in the last decade and along with holders Nigeria are a strong favorite in Tunis. The Lions...
