“Waste of time. You play Uganda and can’t win? So much for Super Eagles.” RIP, Tosyn Bucknor responded.

“I like a team who has a game plan and stick to it! Ugandans did that. Super eagles atimes appear like a team with individual players only showcasing personal talent and skill.” Temi Oyedepo Super Eagle fan said.
