The performance of the Black Stars is not bad but judging from their output in the game against Morocco, a lot has to change because we cannot go very far in the competition with this.
In my view, the management of the senior national team has become too political. If you don't know the people at the top it is difficult to get included no matter how well you know how to play. I suggest the Black Stars come back and let's support Nigeria together.
One more mentioned:
The kind of show the Black Stars are putting up makes me think they will exit in the group stages because they do not look good enough to bring back the trophy this time.
