THE EAGLES COULDN’T SOAR AT WEMBLEY
On Saturday, 2nd June we saw the International friendly match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and their English counterparts in the prestigious Wembley stadium, London.
The game which was star studded featured some of the best players in the English premier league and Europe.
The Nigerian team, Captained by midfield maestro John Obi Mikel. The the English team was captained by Prolific striker Harry Kane.
The first half of the game was a show of might by the English side as they scored two goals by Garry Cahilland Harry Kane respectively. The Nigerian side however, had nothing to show in the first half besides their bright and beautiful Jerseys (inside joke).

In the second half, some tactical changes were made by the Nigerian Super Eagles coach –Gernt Rohr. That of course changed the course of the game as we saw a better attacking, ball possessing and formidable Nigerian side. Fortunately,they had only a goal scored by Alex Iwobi to show for their brilliant performance in the second half.
The game ended 2-1 in favour of the English side.
Nigerians are very well satisfied with the super eagles jersey and kit, but not satisfied with their game play at the moment. We look forward to a much more better performance from the super eagles in Russia.
What are your predictions for the world Cup? Do you think the Eagles will make it out of the Group Stage? How far do you think they can go?
