There are serious indications that a deep-rooted animosity has cropped up in the camp of the Super Eagles in Brazil, threatening its prospects in the ongoing World Cup tournament in Brazil. The animosity is believed to be eating deep into the unity of the team and tearing the team into three different groups.
It is believed that one of the groups is made up of players that are loyal to captain Joseph Yobo who want him to make a record 100 appearance for the Super Eagles, while the second group is said to be loyal to one of the assistant coaches that is said to be very influential in the camp, the loyalist are players he influenced their selection. This group is alleged to be very angry with Turkey based Emmanuel Emenike because they felt he has suddenly grown wings, proud and arrogant and in exchange he won’t be feed with passes.
Soccer pundits fear that if this division is not quickly resolved before the Eagle play their next match against Bosnia & Herzegovina then Nigeria should be ready to go back home with a bag full of goals.
It was gathered also that the Stoke City striker, Peter Osaze Odemwingie has been left alone in a pathetic situation to sulk coach Stephen Keshi’s recent out burst on him that he didn’t play to instruction in the match against Iran.
Pundits penciled teamwork as one of the topmost important ingredient of a successful team, noting that the African Champions now appears to lack, which a signal for over 170 million Nigerians to forget about Brazil 2014 in a haste. [myad]
