Hi everyone, on today’s episode : Rohr names his squad with Iheanacho out, Defending Champions whooped at home, Spurs make it through for the first time, Los Angeles Lakers might just miss the playoffs for the 6th season in a roll.
In the Nigerian Professional Football League there hasn’t been any fantastic or mouth watering news so far. Remember that there are two groups in the league this season. MFM United are currently Top of group A with Eyimba FC and Sunshine stars as 2nd and 3rd respectively.
Ifeanyi Uba FC are top of group B with 18 points while El-Kanemi Warriors and Akwa United follow as 2nd and 3rd with 18pts and 16pts respectively.
Rohr names his Squad
Gerot Rohr has listed his super eagles squad for the final match of the Afcon qualifies against seychelles on 22nd of March at the Stephen Keshi stadium in Asaba.
Big names such as Mikel Obi(although he took an excuse saying he wants to focus on his new club), Victor Moses and kelechi Iheanacho have been omitted from the squad. This has raised eyebrows as most fans were expecting a much different line up with new faces as Nigeria have already qualified for the competition.
Madrid Whooped at Home as Ajax qualify
Ajax stunned the defending champions of the continent after winning 4-1(5-3) at the Santiago Bernabeu. This loss ended their 1000 days as kings of the continent.
This loss definitely means Solari will not be at the club next season as Madrid are currently 12 points off leaders Barca. I have been wondering if Ramos fowl that made him miss this match was intentional.
Spurs are in the last 8 of champions League
Spurs finished off what they began in the first leg after Harry Kane’s goal in the second leg of their match. Kane’s goal made it a 4-0 score on aggregate and this will be the first time they will be qualifying since their first attempt since 2010/2011 season .
In the English premier League they are having a difficult time as there lost their 3rd straight match to a Southampton side that are fighting to avoid relegation.
Manchester United pulled the biggest come back yet.
Manchester United who had lost the first leg of the champions League match to PSG at home pulled the greatest come back yet as they won 3-1 in Paris to qualify for the next stage.
They did this in grand style using what can be called as their 3rd team as majority of their first team players injured. Neymar who is currently unavailable due to injuries had a major blast at the referee reflecting his disgust as his side lost at this stage yet again.
In the NBA
Los Angeles Lakers might just miss the playoffs again
LeBron James has not had the wonderful season we all felt he would at the Lakers as they currently lie 11th in the Western Conference. Their loss against the LA Clippers on monday put a big question mark on their playoffs hopes.
On the other hand, the Rockets have been in fantastic shape as they have turned around their campaign to become one of the hot teams once again. If you can remember, they started really bad and were 14th on the standings but have since made a turn around as they are currently 3rd.
The Bucks are also having an awesome season as they are still top of the Eastern conference while the Warriors top the Western Conference.
Till I come your way next time .
