Tahiti - Nigeria    (lost)

Coming to confederation’s cup, Nigeria in the qualifiers campaign for Brazil 2014 played a hard game against Kenya (5th   June) and will play the other against Namibia (12th   June). So, Nigeria will play Tahiti just 5 days later and we could have fatigue telling on the team.

Coach Stephen Keshi’s team comprises of 8 locals.

Mikel, Moses and Ambrose are stars of the Nigerian team. Mikel not fully fit but will be risked against Namibia.

Here’s the list of players that will form the Nigerian attack:

Joseph Akpala (SV Werder Bremen), Brown Ideye (Dynamo Kiev), Anthony Ujah (FC Cologne), Nnamdi Oduamadi (Varese), Gambo Mohammed (Kano Pillars), Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow)

To be honest, there is no real potent striker in this list and i realy can’t see Nigeria covering a +3 handicap. Ideye wastes chances, Musa inconsistent. Emmenike is the team’s best striker but still injured.

Besides, its the first match of the competition where both teams may want to keep it cool. Keshi is a tactical coach who would basically be interested in 3 points for an opener, not necessarily a goal rain!

Concerning the attack Joseph Akpala (Werder Bremen ; 21 matchs, 1 goal), Michael Babatunde (FC Kryvbas ; 11 matchs), Muhammad Gambo (Kano Pillars), Brown Ideye (Dynamo Kiev ; 28 matchs, goals), Ahmed Musa (CSKA Moscow ; 26 matchs, 11 goals), Nnamdi Oduamadi (Varese ; 16 matchs, 2 goals), Anthony Ujah (FC Cologne, 28 matchs, goals). Of course it is not Falcao or Cavani, but against total amators, I see a very easy win for Nigeria, even -3 is good IMO. Good Luck

Hi domac, can this pick be deleted, i mad a huge mistake... i`d thought Haiti - Nigeria. Please pardon me!
Domac 12-06-2013, 11:29
Not possible I`m afraid. the pick is like a placed bet and can`t be cancelled for a mistake of the punter.

okay then, i will write the right preview on what i think about "Tahiti` not `Haiti` vs Nigeria when i make up my mind - that should be after watching Nigeria today. Hopefully the preview can be edited, i remember its been done before. Thanks

Ideal preview: Tahiti qualified as winners in Oceania. They are a very weak team, the players lack height and almost all of them play at home. In their build up to the confederation’s cup, they got thumped 7-0 by Chile U20 team. 4 of the goals were from long ball square plays, 1 penalty and 1 free-kick. The last came through creative play into the 18 yard. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTqAIDyIcY0 In Nigeria’s last qualifier match against Namibia, it was one of those matches people tagged ‘must-win’ for Nigeria. Safe the high altitude though, Nigeria could only create one chance, and actually played just one shot on goal. The goal scored to level was a free-kick that should have been a easy catch for the keeper. Nigeria finished as AFCON winners with Mikel, V.Moses and Emenike been the distinguished players. V.Moses and Emenike were not called due to injury. All eyes will be on Mikel Obi who is nursing a minor injury, not fully fit and was risked against Namibia. Coach Keshi’s tactics is defensively minded. Since he took over the national team, Nigeria has never lost a competitive match; its either a win or draw, usually low-scoring. Only two notable matches had gone with a goal fest under him (6:1 vs Liberia and 4-1 vs Mali) with both matches not lacking the input of V.Moses. Tahiti is a very weak team, but this pick is largely about the current state of Nigeria who is currently struggling upfront and should be fatigued after two hard matches on travel. Main Pick: Under 3.75 goal(s) 1.9 @betvictor

OK, the wrong texts were removed earlier from the main first preview.
