Oh, come on. Europe shoud be winning more often. England should have won, but it seems that luck favored the Big N.

Nigerians finally scaled through but the match actually gave me a scare. It's a good testament of no one should be undermined in the game of football. I started watching the match believing that the English will be down and dusted i.e. the game will be a walk-over. It turned out to be the opposite. With this in mind, Nigerian players will have to be stronger to be able to beat France and other teams they will meet afterwards. I have a strong believe in this crop of players but IN FOOTBALL, IT'S NOT OVER UNTIL IT'S OVER!

"The only thing that worked for us was the goal, which was enough to go through. Our opponent played a defensive game and they were launching counter attacks. We caused problems for ourselves, and for the next game we must correct the mistakes that we made."
Nigeria coach John Obuh
