1. TIME WASTING THROUGH VAR CONTROVERSIES
Since the inception of the VAR (Video assisting referee) it has been marred by many controversies. Especially time wasting. VAR has its advantages and disadvantages. Among the disadvantages are timewasting and heartaches arising from the overturning of decision. Just imagine a scenario whereby Alex Iwobi scores against Lionel Messi and his Argentine army and the whole of Nigeria goes wild in celebrations, only for the decision to be overruled 3 mins later and our Joy be cut short. I can imagine the reactions of Nigerians; Oloshi, awonolojoro… lol. Welllet’ss not forget decision can go in our favour also
2. PSYCHIC ANIMALS
Guys remember Paul the Octopus at the 2010 world cup in South Africa, well there is another Psychic animal and it’s a Pig. Well he has even predicted that Nigeria is gonna make the Semi-finals and the reactions of Nigerians have been funny. Some are even planning to kill it for being a false prophet. LOL you say?!
3. THE FASHION SHOW
With the rave that has been brought by the attention the new Super Eagle Jerseys has gained worldwide for its beauty, it will be no surprise that It will be a talking point for most of our stay in the world cup as it was during the first half in the recent friendly match against England when Nigeria was playing poorly; The commentator said, the only thing bright about Nigeria’s display today is their Jersey. Well let’s hope that will not be the case in Russia.
4. CAMP REBELS
I pray this doesn’t befall the super Eagles, but every tournament there are always players sent back home from various teams due to offences ranging from disrespect, oversized egos, disobedience to coach laid down rules like Abstinence from certain things.
5. OVERZEALOUS FANS
As much as we pray for the peace of every tourist in Russia, it’s important to note that there will still be some group of people that would allow things to get out of hand by violent means all in name of expressing their football emotions. May God protect all that travelled
