    He spent half of the match flat on the ground -a bit embarrassing really, as his antics were having no effect on the ref

    Speaking of Ivan Toney, I know he didn't exactly cover himself in glory at NYS with his antics, but would he be worth a shout for us next season?
    Him and Duane Holmes were two of league 1's better players last season. We will need some pace and they have it.

    African football doesn't seem to have progressed too much in the last 20 years .

    Don't get me wrong they produce some outstanding individual footballers but fall short of producing great teams .

    To be totally honest and my opinion I was appalled by Nigeria's performance last night against Croatia .

    It's possibly one of the worst Croatian teams I've seen at a major tournament and yet Nigeria couldn't even put in a decent shift .

    No enthusiasm no energy , actually no nothing .

    Why spend two years qualifying and turn up like that in a game you are more than capable of getting something out of ? .

    FIFA want to expand the tournament to 48 teams , really !!!

    You know what in my honest opinion they need to cut it to 16 , 16 elite nations who actually grasp what this tournament is actually all about .

    Based on what I've seen the Saudi's and Nigeria plus many more have no right to be at the world cup .

    There are players in world football with more money in the bank than the whole of the african continet who will run their blood to water to win the games ultimate prize .

    If Africa doesn't get it then feck off because to be honest your participation just devalues the whole event .

    .
    Even if they lose the rest of their games, teams like Nigeria, Egypt and Iceland are the reason why I love The World Cup so much. I think your idea is daft to be honest. Are you American by any chance?

    16 is too few but 48 is too many, compromise on 32.

    Agreed itís great to see a wide variety of teams, but I think 32 is about right.

    I was going to say about Nigeria that it must be difficult having all their players play in a different continent and not together all that much. And they certainly donít have as good a infrastructure as most other countries that have won the world cup (only 8 have mind you). Donít forget that we have far fewer coaches in this country than they do in say Germany, and look at the difference there.

    But then again on the first point all the Saudis play in the same division and it didnít help them much...

    Nigeria have fielded some good World cup team in the past, plus they knocked out Cameroon from the qualifiers this time . Bit of a puzzle why they were so poor earlier in the week, but they may improve with a bit of team re-selection. They were poor in that recent friendly against England until half-time, but looked better second half. Not as good as the Nigeria teams of the 1990s though.
