Champions League LIVE: Chelsea 0 – 0 Porto. Olympiakos 0 – 0 Arsenal

Published

on

Chelsea and Arsenal have their faith in their hands when they face Porto and Olympiakos respectively. Lose and you drop to the Europa League like Manchester United.

Though Chelsea are top of their group with 10 points, they are level on points with Porto who they play and two ahead of Dynamo Kiev who play Maccabi Tel Aviv.

If Chelsea lose and Dynamo win, The Ukranian’s go through. Like it was yesterday with Man Utd, Wolfsburg and PSV any team could drop to the Europa League.

Arsenal are also in a plucky situation, they are third in their group behind Bayern Munich (already qualified) and Olympiakos.

Arsenal must better the 3 – 2 defeat they suffered to the Greek team in London on match day two or they drop to the Europa League ‘like Manchester United’.

Bayer Leverkusen – Barcelona

Roma – BATE Borisov

He wrote on his IG page :

This is one of the most difficult career decisions I have had to take. It’s been an amazing 5 years journey, but after due consultation and extensive discussion with my family, I have decided it’s time for me to retire from the National team.

It’s has been an eventful and most memorable opportunity to serve my country with pride, passion and to contribute my quota to the development of our football, the memories would stay with me for a long time and I’m immensely grateful. It is now time to concentrate on Club football and give the younger players chance to learn and grow.

I would love to thank the NFF, coach Gernot Rohr for believing in me against all odds,to my teammates for their professionalism and team spirit without you guys I wouldn’t have achieved so much with this team.

To NIGERIAN football fans all over the world,I SAY THANK YOU, you were always there to cheer us on and our 12th players every time we step into the pitch. I will be watching and cheering the SUPER EAGLES from this side. THANK YOU…..signing OUT.
