EAGLES STILL HIGH FLIERS
The prestigious African Cup of Nations is upon us. This is the 33rd edition of this biennal competition been hosted by Cameroon albeit belatedly– the last edition held in 2019 and Covid worries postponed the 2021 edition to this year. It has been a refreshingly surprising tournament for Nigerian team,called the Super Eagles, so far in the current stage– group stage. Nigeria surprised the world by trumping Egypt one nil. The context here is a Nigerian team that only just employed a caretaker coach in Augustine Eguavoen only few weeks before the competition, so his first competitive match was against Egypt. An Egypt coached by the respected former Madrid coach in Carlos Queiroz, and the team he has been building for years; this includes the English Premier League super star, Mohammed Salah and Arsenal's Mohammed Elneny. It was indeed a shock defeat for Egypt. Nigeria went ahead and spanked Sudan 3–1 in their next match to seal their qualification for the next round(round of 16). Today Nigeria plays their last group match against Guinea-Bissau. They have rightfully rested many of their starting eleven. Here is a list of the starting eleven: Uzoho Ebuehi Troost-Ekong Ajayi Collins Ndidi Nwakali Iheanacho Iwobi Sadiq Ejuke Observations: This squad above is not,so far away from the first team in terms of quality and should beat Guinea comfortably. Uzoho: He's the goalkeeper. With Guinea Bissau expected to throw the kitchen sink at the Super Eagles, it will be an excellent opportunity to see Uzoho’s net-minding credentials and benchmark it against that of Okoye, the usual goalkeeper. Ajayi: A centre back. Having lost his place to Akpoguma in the tail end of Rohr’s reign, Ajayi now has the chance to redeem himself with a convincing and compelling performance. Ebuehi: The right back. He needs to bring his Serie A and Super Eagles training sessions form to fore today to attempt to knock Excellent Aina into a cocked hat. He's expected to do well. Collins: The left back. With so much mystery shrouding his initial appearance in camp, nothing short of ‘A1’ deliveries and deft defending from him will satisfy Super Eagles fans. Nwakali: A midfielder. Finally, his much awaited start in Super Eagles colours (in a meaningful match) is here. He will have to replicate his 2018 performance against Atletico Madrid for many fans to treat him better than a grain of salt. So much is riding on Nwakali’s display today and he is such a player to deliver the goods when in his countries colours. Iwobi: Plays at right wing today. Having effectively lost his midfield slot to compatriot Aribo in this tournament, Iwobi will be keen to wrestle the right wing starting position off underwhelming Chukwueze. Sadiq Umar: The striker. It is last chance saloon for the Almeria man in this tournament. A tepid performance today may just see him gather dust on the Super Eagles benches for the remainder of the tournament (and perhaps adversely affect his long term Super Eagles status). Ejuke: The left winger. This is the position he is useful to eventhough he is right footed. Good to see him fielded there today. He is a dashing winger with so much skill. On the coach Eguavoen, eventhough it might seem a balsy move to introduce a whole 8 players in a historically significant potential record setting encounter for him as a Nigeria coach, this will nonetheless reveal whether there is strength in-depth in the Super Eagles. Cheers

One club Legends
Transfers are a huge part of modern football, but some players don't know what it's like to change teams. Here are the greatest one card players of all time. Francesco Totti. Known as the eighth king of Rome, Francesco Totti stayed loyal to his boyhood club throughout his 24 year career. The attacker made his debut for Roma in 1993 and putting on the shirt for the last time in 2017. In total, he ranked up 786 appearances and scored 307 goals for the Giallorossi. Totti only ever won one city title and he never got his hands on a European trophy. That was because of his commitment to Roma at his peak, Totti could have played for any club in the world, as a matter of fact, he almost joined Real Madrid in 2004 before deciding it'd be too painful to say goodbye to the club of his heart. No matter who plays for Roma in the future. There will never be another Francesco Totti. Ryan Giggs. The class of 92 Were one of the most talented youth teams in football history, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, David Beckham, Gary Neville, Phil Neville, and Nicky Barton all went on to become first team regulars at Manchester United. Giggs was the first one to make his debut than the last one to retire. The Welshman played 963 games for United in a remarkable career. He started out as a speedy tricky winger and later became a thoughtful proving midfielder. Giggs could have left the club in the early 2000s. Juventus and Inter Milan both wanted him but in the end, he decided to stay united by the time he retired in 2014 Giggs had won 13 Premier League titles with one club, it's hard to see anyone ever beating that record. Paolo Maldini At the start of his career Paolo Maldini was mainly known as being the son of Cesare Maldini, a former AC Milan defender and Italy international. Maldini senior played over 400 times for Milan, he was overtaken by his extraordinary son. Between 1985 and 2009 Paolo featured in 902 games for the club. Maldini was a model of consistency throughout his career whether playing at left back right back or centre back, he barely put a foot wrong during his 24 seasons in the first team Maldini won seven Seria A titles and five champions leagues at the San Siro. He never came close to leaving Milan and currently works as the club's technical director. Franco Baresi. One of the greatest center banks the world has ever seen and Franco Baresi also spent his entire career at AC Milan he played alongside Paolo Maldini for a while. Opposition strikers certainly didn't enjoy coming up against the Rosaneri of that era. Baresi first appearance for Milan came in 1978, He was still going strong almost two decades later, before finally hanging up his boobs in 1997. By that time, he'd won virtually everything that was to win at club level, including six Seria A titles and three champions leagues. Tony Adams. Known as Mr. Arsenal by gunners fans, Tony Adams played for the club in three different decades. The centre back joined the youth team in 1980 and made his senior debut three years later aged just 17. By the time he was 21, Adams was a regular starter and the club captain. The Defender won his first league title in the most dramatic of circumstances in 1989, as Arsenal beat Liverpool 2-0 on the final day, Adams won four championships during his career, including 2 under Arsene Wenger, in '98 and 2002. It's difficult to imagine Adams wearing a shirt other than Arsenal's but he could have joined man united in the mid 90s. "Alex Ferguson came in for me, but I wouldn't leave" he said Carlos Puyol Sometimes Puyol looked a little out of place in Pep Guardiola's team of tiki-taka titans but without the rugged defenders passion, grit and determination, Barcelona wouldn't have been as successful as they were. Puyol is an undisputed Barcelona legend, but he almost left the club before he even made his debut. Malaga had an offer for him accepted in 1998 but puyol rejected the move after a former teammate at youth level was promoted to the first team, that teammate was Xavi Hernandez. Puyol played almost 600 games for Barca, he was a six times La Liga champion than a three time Champions League winner, unlike Xavi, Iniesta and Lionel Messi, didn't join another club later in his career. When his contract expired in 2014, the Barcelona Captain simply walked off into the sunset. Jamie Carragher. Jamie Carragher was actually an Everton fan as a kid. He even wore an Everton kit to his Liverpool trial, his loyalties lie in the red half of the city these days though, that's very natural considering he spent his entire 17 year career at Anfield where he won almost everything apart from the Premier League. The top tackling defender played 737 times for Liverpool. He was often overshadowed by Steven Gerrard, another local lad who inspired the club to glory on a regular basis. Now, Gerrard might be the bigger club legend, but his short spell at LA Galaxy means he can't be considered as a one club man. When it comes to those, Jamie Carragher is Liverpool's Number One Paul Scholes. When they were in Manchester United's youth team, Gary Neville thought Paul Scholes would never make it. He was small, so slight. He didn't have great energy. He had no strength. He had asthma, he couldn't really run very far. He wasn't quick, he'd never beat you for pace. Over 700 appearances and 20 major trophies later, it's fair to say Scholes proved Neville wrong. The midfielder spent his entire career at Old Trafford even came out of retirement in 2012 to help the club out. Even at the age of 38, Scholes was still one of the best players at the club.
