He's a back up to Mahrez, won't play more than 20 minutes.Nigeria fan here.
Seeing as this is now a regional matchup (North Africa vs West Africa) I really hope for reasonable match officiating. Don't want to put on my tin foil hat here.
While we possess probably the most balanced midfield in the competition, we do have a defence prone to brainfarts and a 'keeper' who is in essence a goal post prop.
I really hope Musa and Ighalo bring their A game to the pitch and we'd look to hit them on rapid counterattacks as they have pretty aerially dominant center backs.
Adam Ounas is a handful though. Need to keep him under close watch.
TBF with Tunisia you never know. They're usually lucky as hell so anything can happen. Senegal is favorites, but I won't say it's a sure win.He's a back up to Mahrez, won't play more than 20 minutes.
The officiating has been good. There's no reason it shouldn't continue. Var is working Okay i guess. there were some misses but that's normal.
I think that you have an advantage over them. having played one day before and arguably against an easy opponent + them playing 30 more minutes in their game.
The Senegal - Tunisia game is more straightforward. It'll be a Senegal win for sure.
Well, it's knock-out games, so I agree that you never know. Senegal are heavy favorite though.TBF with Tunisia you never know. They're usually lucky as hell so anything can happen. Senegal is favorites, but I won't say it's a sure win.
Does the AFCON have yellow-card suspensions for finals? If not, then I can't explain his approach with much other than to keep the game's competitiveness and intensity up. Even then, it's not like yellows can dampen the match's intensity.The ref is very suspect, he doesn't wanna book either teams
