We shall see how Siasia will utilize these returning players against the Germans. Flying Eagles can sink them with the right strategy and all the way to finals. European teams are usually not Nigeria problems. Agbonwaneten (Windsor, Canada)

you guys should take it really easy on siasia and the team bcos they really had a BAD START in the tournament,the loose two creative mid-fielder,two great strikers and a very good central defender(lukman haruna) but with all these guys coming back in the round of 16, the world should watch out for NIGERIA!!!
