Four Lessons from England, Nigeria Friendly

The England, Nigeria friendly played at the Wembley Stadium on Saturday could have gone either way.
England dominated the opening 45 minutes, with Gary Cahill and Harry Kane netting the goals, before an early second half strike from Alex Iwobi made it a harder task for the hosts.
But overall it was a fairly good performance from the Eagles with one more warm-up match against Czech Republic left before flying to Russia for the FIFA World Cup.
However there are fall-outs from the game  as the team continues with its World Cup build-up.
1)      Eagles were Shaky in the First half
The Super Eagles must work on their confidence before their World Cup Opener against Croatia. Their lack of confidence led to the two goals recorded in the first half.
2)      Rohr Must Start his Best Players
Eagles Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr may have read the match very well after the first half and he responded by making the right substitutions that fortified the team. After Rohr made his first four changes at the interval with Ebuehi, Omeruo, Ogu and Etebo substituted for Shehu, Balogun, Onazi and Obi, the Eagles played better. Ahead of the World Cup, Rohr must field his best 11.
3)     Uzoho Decent but Still Shaky
Though, Francis Uzoho put up an impressive performance , the 19-year-old should be blamed for England’s second goal by Harry Kane.
4)     Eagles Midfield Lacks Co-ordination
Our three man starting midfield at the World Cup should be Mikel, Ndidi and Etebo. Our midfield was non-existent. The trio of Mikel Obi. Joel Obi and Ogenyi Onazi were not communicating.
If the England midfield comprising kerion Dier and Jesse Lingard were winning the balls over Mikel, Onazi and Joel Obi how are we going to cope against Modric, Rakitic and Kovacic?
A player like John Ogu should come in for Onazi subsequently.

300 Level Class Page Dissolved As SHIM UCH Freshers Go On Break

It started in the early  hours of the day, around 7:36am when the previous day birthday celebrant (Ganiyu  Olamide) picture  on the group page was changed.  Lovers of the celebrants reacted and the whole  shenanigans  started on the last day of the semester. According  to a class member, he was expecting  to see messages  like farewell, journey mercy, love you, missing you already, my kiss kiss, my uncrushable candy and crush able strawberry but felt so sad reading messages  full of curses and abuses.  After so many appalling messages, one of the administrator removed everyone on the class page and shut it down.  What is the reaction of the class Governor, Deputy Governor, Class monitor, and other Elder statemen?????

Writing One Paper Is Not The Board Standard, so students should prepare for two papers per day -Pelumi Oyelami

Mr Oyelami when meeting with  the members of the  Press club, advised the students  to go and read for their examinations  and stop  being  lazy.

Students are here to read irrespective  of the arrangement  of the timetable, they should  go and read,  come to  the examination  centre and pass.

Writing two papers per day is a form  of training, writing  one paper is not the standard  with the board,so students should prepare  for two.

When the board releases their timetable, the school does not complain,  and the students  read their books, face the exam and they pass so why will they be forming  lazy in the school.  We will  maintain  the appropriate  standard  in this school.

Notwithstanding  steps has been  taking on the correction  of the examination  timetable of 200level students. It is with the Head of school to decide,i have done my part as the Academic  affair  Officer.
