Nigerian Squad A Disgrace — Jay-Jay Okocha

"All of us back home in Nigeria knew that this group of players would not get anywhere from the start. Their preparations were nothing to write home about while the Swede manager was brought into the fold too late. The performance of the Eagles in South Africa is disgraceful and not acceptable. I feel very sad that the majority of Nigerians are here watching the Eagles in this terrible condition,” Jay Jay Okocha

All hail Vincent Enyeama

Please all hail our national goal keeper, Vincent Enyeama. How many 'goals' did he stop today? We would have been so embarrassed if not for him.

Meanwhile I hear Spanish giants Espanyol have joined the chase for him. That is after West Ham's Avram Grant showed interest.

A reliable source was quoted by the UK Sun as saying: "Enyeama was absolutely superb against Argentina and he'd be a brilliant buy. "So Avram Grant is using his Israeli connections to clinch a deal as soon as the World Cup ends."

Amen for him. He deserves it!

In focus: Super Eagles Sani Kaita

Did you all see what this fool guy did in our match with Greece? He more or less cost us this match.

He got a red card for violently kicking out at Vasilas Torosidis in the 33rd minute and it's by far one of the silliest fouls/tackles I've ever seen in my life. Totally uncalled for and such behaviour should not be tolerated.

This is what he did...

With Nigeria up 1-0 after an early goal, Kaita and Torosidis came together in an awkward clash as they both chased down a wayward ball and Torosidis collected it for a throw in. Torosidis made like he was going to shove the ball at Kaita, who almost reflexively kicked out at the Greek defender, grazing his leg with his foot. Well, Torosidis made the most of it and went to the ground with dramatic flair to be sure the referee saw what happened. He did and Kaita was sent off. 

Have a look at the nonsense he did here

Perez Hilton could go to jail...

Blogger Perez Hilton is in serious trouble. He's currently facing widespread outrage, and possibly legal trouble, for posting an apparently explicit paparazzi shot of Miley Cyrus taken when the singer was climbing out of a car.

Hilton, 32, posted the offending photo yesterday Monday June 15 on his twitter page. He has since removed it. But since it exposed Cyrus, 17 – a minor – he could potentially face child-pornography charges.

Jeffrey Douglas, a Los Angeles criminal defense attorney specializing in child pornography cases said that it was "suicidal" for Hilton to distribute the image. "We're not talking about a misdemeanor," he said. "You don't have to know what the definition of the law is; all you have to do is knowingly distribute the photograph."

Perez responded via a video posted on his blog “Do you think Miley is that stupid to be out in public without panties? Do you think I’m stupid enough to post a photo of Miley if she’s not wearing any underwear down there? Sure I like to be controversial, but I don’t want to go to jail. The reason I linked to that photo is because I thought she was exiting this car in a very un-ladylike fashion.” he said
If convicted he could face up to 15 years in jail
