Congrats to both Nigeria and Senegal.
Both games were played at medium to low pace, but the opening matches are almost always like that.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but Nigeria played with a diamond midfield today didn't they ? that's what I thought anyway. With Obodo on the left, Odemwingie on the right and Yusuf Atanda the holding midfielder. Oruma as the playmaker.
Anyway, Nigeria's backline didn't look too secure IMO. Also, the team has to work on creating chances as the opportunities Nigeria had today were all from shots or defensive blunders.
Martins and Agahowa barely received any support or service.
As for Senegal, they had it easy. One way traffic throughout. Henri Camara was class
Funny that Senegal opened the scoring via a counter attack, when they were dominating the entire match.
Zimbabwe are truly doomed in this group. If they get one point it would be great for them.
Senegal vs. Ghana should be pretty interesting.
