Terrible situation our football administrators got us in’
@preciousekeke: “If pesiero survives a sack letter after this dismal outing then the NFF should tell us what he has against them.”
@gagnatbiz: “We are not doing it again o. We want a better performance with a win at the end. Not all this draw and “let’s do it again”.
@Mvolgap: xUseless NFF do you shameful people need people to tell you to sack this coach and this goal keeper,not every player needs to invited into the national team just like the late Steven keishe said.”
@isibor266:”The entire team and coaching crew should be disbanded. This is a shame and waste of scarce resources.”
@yoboydonchichi: “You can never do anything again. Please, drop this slogan after another disgraceful result against Zimbabwe. With a failure like Jose Peseiro as coach, Nigeria can never achieve anything in football.”
