Ameobi admits Nigeria rode their luck Shola Ameobi admitted Nigeria rode their luck at times as they beat World Cup debutants Bosnia-Hercegovina 1-0 in a crucial Group F encounter on Saturday. Peter Odemwingie's first half strike handed Nigeria their first win at a World Cup finals since 1998. The goal came just seven minutes after Bosnia striker Edin Dzeko had a goal incorrectly disallowed for offside. Nigeria also survived a late scare in injury time. Dzeko scuffed a shot which Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama deflected onto the post and away to safety. Ameobi conceded Nigeria needed a bit of luck. "We probably rode our luck a bit but it was all about getting the three points and getting the job done," Ameobi told BBC Sport. "In football you need a bit of that [luck] but kudos to the lads, they fought hard for this victory because Bosnia kept coming at us. We never doubted our own ability. "Credit is due to the coaching staff and our fans too for their support after a difficult first game against Iran ...

Is that former Man City flop "Jo" coming on for Brazil??? What next, Shola Ameobi at the World Cu.oh!
Stephen Keshi has succeeded in bungling our chances of advancing to the second round by stubbornly refusing to take Ike Uche(who is clearly our best striker)to the World Cup and by also starting a terrible line-up keeping Osaze on the bench,and by making the worst substitution in the history of the World Cup,taking out Victor Moses and bringing on Shola Ameobi who has no business in our World Cup squad... It will take a "Miracle"to get past the first round as we now have to beat Bosnia and at worst draw against Argentina. But the truth is that when you draw against Iran in a group that includes Argentina, you don't need Nostradamus to tell you your days in Brazil are numbered!
Nija don suffer sef! Majority of the players in the Nigeria team are average players and bench warmers in their varrious clubs. Imagine Victor Moses, he left Chelsea for Liverpool on loan and could not give a good fight to common Raheem Sterling. He did not play any 90 min game last season Wao! Mikel Obi was voted Chelsea worst player last season and surprising many people tagged him as Nigeria best. He was relegated to the bench following Jose Mourinho's return to standford bridge. Many have asked what the *** he is still waiting for at Chelsea if really he values his football career. ooo! Shola Ameobi is another palava. Someone who refused to commit himself to Nigeria when he was needed instead opted for England who later dumped him, only for him to see same Nigeria as a root to taste International football at the highest level. What was his performance for Newcastle last season that makes him deserve merit to represent Nigeria? When we have Ikechuckwu Uche doing well for Villareal of Spain. Na wao! Wh ...

Eagles took us through a night of horor with a bitter meal for dinner. Enyiama was SUPER in goal as always. Ambrose Efe was overambitious. The central defence was stable. Onazi was a shadow of himself. MIKEL took responsibility but failed to do more than enough. What happened to Victor Moses? Ahmed Musa's ZERO football sense is a nightmire. Emeneke flopped like *** Shola Ameobi imposed his presence. OSAZE brought Class and SPARK into the game. The team should be built on OSAZE...He's skills and onfield maturity can be trusted.
Bloody ridiculous this is, no wonder Nigeria are struggling against a bunch of nobodies! They take Shola Ameobi to the World Cup and leave Taribo West, Sunday Oliseh, JayJay Okocha, Celestine Babayaro and Nwankwo kanu at home! Sort it out!
Shola Ameobi is not good enough to polish Nwankwo Kanu's boots. Or Daniel Amokachi's. Or Rachidi Yekini's. Or AN Other's.
Instead of watching Zlatan Ibrahimovic & Christian Eriksen, we've got to watch the likes of Shola Ameobi & an out of form Victor Moses.

So how do we expect to win the World Cup when majority of our strikers and wingers have poor goal records?
If Nigeria was hoping to build some momentum heading toward the World Cup, it’s final two preparation matches before Brazil didn’t do much to send the African champion off in style. Just four days after settling for a 0-0 tie against Greece, Nigeria created few chances and showed little substance in dropping a 2-1 decision to the United States. Only a late Victor Moses penalty kick, which came after the U.S. had inserted several substitutes, helped keep the Super Eagles from riding to Brazil on a pair of goal-less games. Stephen Keshi mixed things up with his lineup against the Americans, no doubt in part because of the somewhat short turnaround time between the Greece match and USA match. Emmanuel Emineke was left on the bench, with Shola Ameobi handed a start, while Ahmed Musa sat out with an injury. The result was a performance that saw little in the way of creativity or offensive cohesion, and far to often devolved into repeated attempts by Moses to take an organized U.S. defense on by himself. Th ...
In the midst of all the gloom, a vital fact has snuck away unnoticed: the Super Eagles actually played quite well for the opening quarter of an hour. There was better ball retention in midfield, and this was a consequence of Keshi finally playing a proper 4-3-3. The inclusion of Ramon Azeez meant there was an extra pair of legs in midfield, and he rotated well with John Obi Mikel and Onazi. In possession, they were composed but as the half wore on they found it harder to play the ball forward due to the static Shola Ameobi. This led to a greater amount of turn-overs. Once the ball was lost, the problem of the system became apparent. There was a tremendous amount of looseness when the United States transitioned from defence to attack. In this regard, blame must be laid at the feet of both Keshi and Mikel. The former’s insistence on playing Onazi in the anchor role is puzzling and concedes space in front of the defence; the latter’s failure to marshal the midfield gives the lie to those who have trumpet ...
My dear Stephen Keshi! It is yet again that period when I am always compelled to write you a letter. This time, the importance of the letter cannot be over emphasized. This is because you and your lads, the Super Eagles, will be representing the country and in deed Africa at the World Cup in Brazil. You are already aware that the competition kicks off in about 3 days. As Nigerians, we are very much concerned and nervous. I will explain the reasons why we are scared to our bones at this time. Some of us believe that your choice of players that will represent the country was less than professional. Personally, I believe that some folks who eventually made your World Cup squad have no business being in that team. The inclusion of Joseph Yobo and Shola Ameobi has been seriously questioned by analysts. You forgave Osaze Odewingie and refused to extend such gesture to Ike Uche, a striker of known high quality. Who is a Shola Ameobi when Ike Uche is available? However, you are the boss and the buck stops at your ...
THOSE OF YOU THAT DIDN'T WATCH NIGERIA FRIENDLY AGAINST USA, HERE IS THE MATCH REPORT: African champions, Nigeria, will head into the Fifa World Cup in Brazil with a loss in their last warm-up match against the United States. The Super Eagles suffered a 1-2 loss to the Americans at the Everbank Field in Jacksonville, Florida early this morning. The Super Eagles had earlier posted unconvincing draws in their two previous pre-World Cup friendly matches, ending it 2-2 against Scotland penultimate Wednesday in London and goalless against Greece last Wednesday in Philadelphia, USA. Nigeria head coach, Stephen Keshi started with two changes from the game against Greece in his team’s defence with Joseph Yobo and Juwon Oshaniwa filling in for injured duo of Kenneth Omeruo and Elderson Echiejile, who has now been ruled out of the World Cup. The African champions created the first attacking threat when John Obi Mikel’s long ball over the top was picked up by Shola Ameobi, whose attempt to pass to Osaze Odemwing ...
Sunderland’s Jozy Altidore scored a brace in each half, as the USA beat Nigeria 2-1 in a friendly played in Jacksonville on Saturday night. Stephen Keshi started with Shola Ameobi upfront and Juwon Oshaniwa came in for the injured Echiejile at left-back. Although the Super Eagles started...
Super Eagles! I hope what I saw last night was a deliberate joke...like five-a-side we used to play at "Ogbo azu" play ground. When Will Victor Moses mature. Modern football, if you mesmerize opponents five times and lose the ball three times, you are a failure. Modern football, a quality player does not lose the ball more than three times in the entire match. Then Mikel! I just hope that you were trying to avoid injury else, next season you will be playing for Notts County. Yobo! Well we know why Keshi field you..1. to show Nigerians that your better days are over . 2. to help you reach that 100matches record in your career. Onazi, well done. Shola Ameobi, no be your fault, when dem no fit make single cross make you head, instead they are playing tiki taka wen dem never practice before. Oshaniwa, God go help ooo as Elderson Echiejile don dabaru our World Cup with injury. Osaze, you are the man, no get injury abeg. Emenike, father father. Keshi!!! I no fit teach you your job, but make I just take am say, ...
I hate to be pessimistic! I'm allergic to it but, going by the lackluster performances our national Senior football team - the Super Eagles, I begin to wonder the 'superlity' in these Eagles really. Granted they may have been adviced to tread carefully to avoid further injuries, but, is the United States team not going to the same mundial too? This performance is one of their worst ever. I am beginning to feel indifferent about the team really! Victor Moses has lost the sense of final ball, Mikel Obi is more confused than Nigeria itself, while Ogenyi Onazi's frailties was exposed in the absence of Kenneth Omeruoh, Joseph Yobo is a finished product, while Shola Ameobi has not justified his inclusion. And, if these are not up and doing, what becomes of Nigeria's chances in Brazil? I'm not regretting seeing the game sha! God help us
Naija may pay for the injury to Echiejile. Yobo and Oshaniwa are so useless. Plus, I still maintain that Sone Aluko, Ik Uche and Victor Olaitan would have contributed more than Michael Babatunde, Shola Ameobi and Ramon Azeez. I just hope Keshi manages to ensure that his selection delivers at the end of the day...if not am recommending Sunday Oliseh straight away.
What have Steven Keshi done yo this country by picking Efe Ambrose and Shola Ameobi so one talk to me please am going crazy.
Lille custodian Vincent Enyeama will be in between the pipes, just as he did in the last friendly against Greece, for the Super Eagles last warm-up game against United States in Florida this evening. Providing cover for him at defense are skipper Joseph Yobo, Godfrey Oboabona, Juwon Oshaniwa and Efe Ambrose. John Obi Mikel (Chelsea), Eddy Onazi (Lazio) and Ramon Azeez (Almeria) start in midfield while England based trio Peter Odemwingie, Shola Ameobi and Victor Moses will lead the front-line.

Gee! Breaking News: Ejike Uzoenyi back in the Super Eagles squad for the World Cup. Out goes Elderson Echiejile due to injury and in comes the petite, nifty Ejike Uzoenyi. Echiejile will be indescribably crestfallen at missing out to injury while Uzoenyi who cried after been axed initially from the team will be ecstatic at his recall. If Fate has smiled on you in life, Nothing, I repeat, Nothing can impede you from reaching the top. My Heart goes out to Elderson at this setback, we would have preferred if Babatunde or Ameobi copped this injury. I will keep a close Eye on Shola Ameobi tonight in the friendly against the US to see if he changes my perception of him. Soar Ejike Uzoenyi. You are made for the TOP
Fifa Confirms Super Eagles Numbers For World Cup Fifa has confirmed that the squad lists for this year’s World Cup have officially been documented and shirt numbers have also been confirmed for the 32 teams that qualified for this year’s event. Participating nations had earlier submitted provisional lists of players they intend to take to the tourney and Nigeria, alongside other Nations, were able to beat the June 2 deadline set by the football ruling body. The Super Eagles’ final 23 have now been allocated their jersey number that they would wear at the tournament that starts in less than a week’s time. John Mikel Obi will retain his number 10 on his jersey as he looks to be the creative force in midfield for Nigeria as Vincent Enyeama will wear the number 1 jersey. Shola Ameobi will wear the last squad number (23) while Joseph Yobo, who just returned to the team, will wear his usual number 2 on his shirt. Reserve goalkeepers Austin Ejide and Chigozie Agbim will wear numbers 16 and 21 respectivel ...

At what point does having Shola Ameobi & Uche Nwofor in the squad become preferable to having Ikechukwu Uche? No sense.
Newcastle United are weighing up an £8m swoop for Leeds United hotshot Ross McCormack. The Magpies are desperate to add to their strikeforce this summer, and have targeted McCormack as potential option. The 27-year-old finished last season as the Championship’s leading scorer with 29 goals after the best campaign of his career. But he is keen to try his hand in the Premier League, and is understood to have told Leeds that he wants to leave after being unhappy with the Yorkshire club’s treatment of former manager Brian McDermott, who was sacked last month. West Ham United, Celtic and Leicester have been linked with the Scotland international, who is under contract until 2017. Newcastle boss Alan Pardew wants to keep a British feel to his squad’s recruitment this summer, and has been linked with moves for English internationals Jonjo Shelvey, Andros Townsend and Micah Richards. But it is in attack that United’s need is most pressing, with Loic Remy, Luuk de Jong and Shola Ameobi not returning to th ...
Keshi drops Obi and Igiebor as he names his 23-man World Cup squad their third World Cup are goalkeepers Vincent Enyeama and Austin Ejide. Nigeria's most well-known player Mikel Obi, will only be attending his first finals after the Eagles narrowly missed qualifying for Germany 2006 and he was omitted from South Africa 2010 due to injury. Elderson Echiejile and Osaze Odemwingie, who were also in South Africa four years ago, make the cut again. Other big names in the squad include 2013 Africa Cup of Nations top scorer, Emmanuel Emenike, Victor Moses and Shola Ameobi.

The Super Eagles list is a good one though but I'm disappointed that Ejike Uzoenyi didnt make the list. My take is that Azubuike Egwuekwe, Ahmed Musa and Shola Ameobi has no business in that team while Uzoenyi and Igiebor deserve to be in the party.
Reuben Gabriel!!! I sincerely don't understand what the guy is doing in Super Eagles squad, He was sacked in Kilmarnock Russia, rejected in Russian lower division club, Tottenham found nothing in him, presently in Belgian league bt hasn't played a game. Dropping Nosa Igiebor, Sunday Mba, Joel Obi for him means something is wrong somewhere. Modern football is worn in midfield n yet we have only 5 midfielders n 7 attackers. Let's see how many goals our attackers will score especially, Shola Ameobi n babatunde. I wish them Good luck n wonderful outing.
“Forwards: Emmanuel Emenike, Shola Ameobi, Nnamdi Oduamadi, Victor Moses, Uche Nwofor, Osaze; where did u get your list from!!

Coach Stephen Keshi has released his 23 man selection for the World Cup kicking off in nine days time and some of the names on his roster really leaves me and most football pundits deflated and stunned. Please, who are the Godfathers of Shola Ameobi, Michael Babatunde and Reuben Gabriel? For crying out loud, Michael Babatunde cannot even trap a Ball! Kai! The Guy was tried out at the Confederations Cup last year and was a colossal disaster and was forgotten completely for one year only for Keshi to sneak him back in when we thought Babatunde had been confined to the bins of history. Then Shola Ameobi, is that one a Striker? a striker who has only scored 33 Goals in the past 7 years should be working as a banker in one of our Banks back home. Let me break it down for us so we can understand, he has an average of about 5 to 6 goals a year yet Keshi thinks him good enough for Brazil. Even the English legendary defender John Terry has a better Goals ratio. Haba Keshi! Na wa O! What is it with you and Shola? A ...
Keshi is out of His mind. Shola Ameobi, Babatunde Michael and Michael Uchebo in the squad. The squad is a joke!

The Super Eagles played out a pulsating 2-2 draw with the Tartan Army of Scotland at Craven Cottage in London on Wednesday night in preparation for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil next month Coach Stephen Keshi started out with an experimental side as Joseph Yobo came back into the fold to partner Azubuike Egwuekwe at the heart of the defence. Shola Ameobi and Michael Uchebo led the front line supported by Ejike Uzoenyi and Michael Babatunde from the flanks. Joel Obi and Gabriel Reuben had the responsibility of keeping the midfield tight in what clearly was Keshi giving fringe players a chance to impress him and seek a seat on the plane to Brazil. Here, Supersport.com outlines the lessons learnt from the 2-2 draw with the Scots as the team continues to prepare for the football showpiece event that will kick off next month in Brazil. Right-back is still an issue: Keshi started out with Ebenezer Kunle Odunlami at the right-back position against the Scots and it was quite evident to see the Sunshine Stars defen ...

Judging from tonight's performance, if I see Shola Ameobi near the Nigerian Flight to Brazil, Eziokwum, I will flog him out of that plane. Joel Obi too is still match rusty and shouldnt go to Brazil, Michael Babatunde is not a Super Eagles material and Odunlami I suppose has been ruled out by injury. That is 4 out of the 30 man provisonal list, Keshi should then remove 3 more and we have our final 23 for World Cup.

Shola Ameobi has left Newcastle United after 14 years of service, 397 appearances and 79 goals Shola Ameobi
END OF THE DISCUSSION: Ameobi leaves Newcastle after 14 years Shola Ameobi will bring an end to 14 years of playing at Newcastle this summer after he was not offered a new contract. Loan pair Loic Remy and Luuk de Jong will also return to their respective parent clubs Queens Park Rangers and Borussia Monchengladbach. It means the Toon Army are left with only one recognised senior striker, Papiss Cisse, who is out with a knee injury and could miss the start of next season. Ameobi came through the ranks on Tyneside before making his debut in September 2000. However, he struggled to ever hold down a regular spot at St James' Park, making 397 appearances and scoring 79 goals in total. Seven of those came against Sunderland in Tyne-Wear derby fixtures while the 32-year-old also famously scored in the Champions League against Barcelona at the Camp Nou in December 2002. Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew said: "I have to make a special mention of Shola Ameobi, who has been an incredible servant to Newcastle Un ...

Really hope Shola Ameobi retains his links with Newcastle United and eventually, if he want it, gets offered some sort of role with the club in a ambassadorial or back-room capacity. I don't know of any player at any club with stronger ties to the club they've played for.

Alan Pardew admitted that he was bruised by the orchestrated protest against him and the Newcastle United regime amid the victory against Cardiff City on Saturday – but promised that he and his side will improve next season. A planned walk-out by supporters took place on the 60 and 69-minute mark of Saturday’s 3-0 win over the Bluebirds, a victory that relegated Cardiff to the Championship and ended Newcastle’s losing run, which had threatened to stretch into a seventh game before goals from Shola Ameobi, Loic Remy and Steven Taylor got a much-needed victory in the final home game of the campaign. Before the walk-outs, there were several banners unfurled protesting against Pardew and owner Mike Ashley, while chants against the regime rang out for much of the first half. Pardew accepted that the run of results before Saturday was a let-down for the supporters, and promised to face the problems within the club head-on in the summer. “Over the last six games we’ve not been as competitive, anywhere ...

Dear Stephen Keshi, Compliment of the season. Recently, Manchester United kicked out their manager David Moyes for failing to deliver. However, you have delivered already but many Nigerians are expecting a wow in Brazil. There is every possibility that a disgrace will turn most persons against you demanding your marching order just as Moyes. After both critical look and reasoning, we your fans and Super Eagles' have decided to pre-informed you that life in Brazil would be knotty with the inclusion of Brown Ideye, Obafemi Martins, Shola Ameobi and Victor Anichebe to the squad. However, a repented Osaze Odemwingie could spice up your team to Brazil. We wish you take this advice serious while picking your men. Goodluck but no Sambo 'cos Samba boys may think otherwise. Yours Fans Naija die-hard supporters Invinvible Super Eagles carry go!
Well done Newcastle United.. Our worst run for 27 years!!! Let's keep this up and continue to be raped by everyone that plays us.. One goal in 6 games that's awesome along with losing our last 6 games in a row.. Oh we have a FIFA BALLON D'OR team here.. Mike Ashley deserves a knighthood at what's going on at our club, that's the root of our problem, all he has achieved for us recently is financial stability which I know has been extremely tough however everything else he's tried to do he's failed at.. And one more thing I hope Hatem Ben Arfa & David Santon leave us because they're too good to be at Newcastle right now. Remy go back to QPR, Cisse you should consider a career change because your pissing me off constantly even when your on the bench.. Shola Ameobi for the love of god please retire or open a chip shop!!!
