Published

on

Nigeria’s Super Eagles failed beat Sudan in the away game on October 11, 2014, Saturday. Stephen Keshi’s team is now rooted to the bottom  of Group A with 1 point. However, there are still some theoretical chances for  them to go to Morocco next year and defend their title at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

After three rounds of qualifying, Bafana Bafana are on top with 7 points, ahead of Congo and Sudan with 6 and 3 points respectively.

The match ‘in return’, Nigeria vs Sudan, is scheduled for October 15, 2014, Wednesday (17:00).

55` One of benefits for the Super Eagles may be their fitness level. But it’s currently +30 in Khartoum, so will it actually work?

The game is not going to be easy for Stephen Keshi and his boys. Below is the starting 11 for the game:

The Super Eagles failed to train on Friday evening because the stadium got flooded. Today was a dry day, but the condition of the field remains questionable.

The first Nigeria loss to Sudan was in 1963, when they fell 4-0 in a 1964 Nations Cup qualifier,  and then 2-1 in 1967. The last meeting was in a friendly in 2008 which Nigeria won 2-0.

Nigeria ran away 4-0 winners on their last visit to Sudan (July 2001) during a 2002 World Cup qualifier.

Come and enter government” – Desmond Elliot tells youth. (Video)

 

Nigerian lawmaker, Desmond Elliot has joined other Nigerian politicians in clamouring for regulation of social media.

The Lagos legislator and Nollywood actor, says Nigerian youths display rude behaviour on social media

 

In the video, the Actor-turned-Lawmaker called on the youth to get into Government if they are tired.

He said ;

Mr. Speaker, we need to adress certain things ;

The Nigerian Youth, The Social Media, The Social Influencers, All of these are making the narrative that we are seeing today, except we are joking with ourselves.

Social media is good but it has Negative impacts.

Let me thank you for condeming the killings and carnage that happened at Lekki. When i went through the comments i could not believe it Mr. Speaker, the curses, the abuses from children and i ask myslef, is this Nigeria ? What is going on?

Children cursing, people having the effontery to enter an Oba’s palace, hold the staff of office ? Culture is gone. Mr. Speaker, in the next 5 years, there will be no Nigeria if we don’t act now.

The youth is not only those who do the peaceful protest, but those who have looted and destroyed lives are also youths as well.

He also seized the opportunity to plead with Nigerian celebrities, social media influencers and motivational speakers to “tune down on the hate narrative.”

He said the youth have a constitutional means to change government and it is called the ‘PVC’.

He added ;

Go to the elections, if you are tired come and enter government. People are dying. The narrative must change.
