By 2dramasports.com
Published June 15, 2009

On the left corner, the Eagles of Carthage Tunisia, winners of the 2004 African Nation Cup, and current group leader in group B African World Cup qualification group with six points. Tunisia started round 2 of the World Cup qualification with a bang, beating Kenya and Mozambique respectively.

The Eagles of Carthage Tunisia will have home field advantage as Tunisian football supporters will not miss the chance to support their national team on its World Cup quest against Nigeria. Tunisian football club fans, well known for their heavy support for the Tunisian local football league, will play a role in the intimidation of the Super Eagles.

2dramasports notes on Tunisia Football Team
[1] Great attacking potential
[2] Defense is often suspect 
[3] Striker, Issam Jemma, will not be available due to injury
[4] Lassaad Nouioua is also not available due to injury
[5] Amine Chermitti will be returning from injury 

On the right corner, The Super Eagles of Nigeria, two time, African Nations Cup winners (1980,1994), and second place winner with 4 points in group B of the African World Cup qualification. Watching Super Eagles Football is like a roller coast ride. The game has its high and low points. The Super Eagles began sluggish in the round 2 qualification with a draw against Mozambique, but picked up momentum by sound trashing of Kenya.

Beating Kenya still left fans with doubts despite the score line. The Kenyans missed two goal chances against Nigeria that should not be missed. On the other hand, the Nigerian midfield has its problem losing possession of the ball. One can only imagine what would have happened if the game was played against the likes of Tunisia.

In a match against Tunisia, Nigeria faces a tough opponent that can punish the mistakes of Nigeria within midfield and defense lapses. Coach Amodu would need to bring back Yobo and Shittu back into the Super Eagles back four. Amodu needs to address the midfield crisis with experienced midfields like Wilson Oruma and Christain Obodo; this is where experienced has priority over youth. Players like Kanu would be needed as a super sub to help-out the eagles in the second half of the match.

2dramasports notes on Nigerian Football Team
[1] Great attacking forwards in Ike Uche & Osaze Odemwingie
[2] Midfield still remain a major problem that needs to be fixed
[3] What lineup will Amodu bring out versus Tunisia?

On June 20, 2009 only one eagle will remain standing after the smoke clears. Will it be The Eagles of Carthage Tunisia or The Super Eagles of Nigeria?
