Open letter to Super Eagles of Nigeria

My fellow compatriots I salute you from the nation that houses the largest number of black people on the planet, we know you guys are not having any financial issues as Mikel obi confirmed it before you guys departed for Russia hence there's nothing you guys are lacking and your concentration should be intact.

We watched with sadness on Saturday as the team was humbled by the Croatians due to so many avoidable errors especially from the back line the reason for these mistakes is what we are yet to settle with

However the midfield was loose as was expected against the team with the best midfield in the group even though our best players played out of their fit positions, we saw Iwobi on the flanks when he could have been more productive in the midfield behind Ighalo, Mikel who played this role would have been better in front of the defenders as we know him to be.

Ighalo, you were floppy and wasteful and if you continue like this we will leave the competition without a goal from you.

Atebo, your own goal had an effect on the team but we understand it was a mistake that could have come from anybody.

Ekong, that your tackle na wa oh, na you bring that guy come Russia? You big pass that kin tin na...abeg try step up your game.

Gernot Rohr our great German tactician you deserve some accolades for putting together such a team that is able to cause a nightmare to any team, we lost our calculators ever since you took charge of the team and we don't wish to get new ones and we trust you can do the job.

180 million Nigerians are with you and we hope you guys will crush the islanders and the Argentines and qualify from the group.

From a patriotic Nigerian
For and unbehalf of supporters of the Super Eagles

I am Daniel Riwo
