NFA back Berti? reports that Nigeria Football Association (NFA) despite Coach Berti Vogts poor outing thus far in the Nation's Cup has received kudos from the body.
I am of the opinion that this is the time for Nigerians to have their pound of flesh once the Super Eagles are flush out of the competition.
It is so sad that some Nigerians just for what they can get will deliberately ruin the only thing that brings out together. First they had to travel to England to beg Vogts to come coach the team. Else where the position is advertised and interested parties come to prove why they should be given the job. From day one, Vogts record has not been encouraging and yet NFA signed spurious contract that allowed the man to dictate how he does his thing and today we are seeing the result in Ghana.
Vogts Eagles have picked up just one point from their first two group games at the African Nations Cup and are on the brink of elimination, with their slim chances of progress resting on Ivory Coast beating Mali on Tuesday, and the Nigerians triumphing by at least two goals against Benin. We are now relying on mathematics to qualify. I want the Eagles out of that championship. It is not fair that other teams will put in their best and prepare for a competition while we use the fire brigade approach and expect to win the cup.
Somebody will sure taste the anger of Nigerians very soon because I think we have been too patient with these people without ideas.
