    With Ola Aina not coming due to injury, I wonder who are they going to call to replace him

    • Chairmanfemi 5 years ago

      @Olusegun, Coach Rohr is not calling any one up to replace him. He stated that They have capable back ups in the team already in Awaziem, Ebuehi and Shehu

    Where is that Clandestine called Dr Drey.
    I think finally his treachery has caught up with him.
    Good riddance to bad Doctor.

    Had the deadline fixed for friday,some players would still find reasons not to get there on time.It has been a norm,typically a Nigerian practice.

    I hope Okoye would be given game time. That is what friendlies are for. Don’t just invte them and relegate then to the bench.

    Please, we need options in goal.

    • Oakfield 5 years ago

      @bomboy, his time will come but not in this kind of high intesnsity match. He needs to learn from the bench and gradually make his way into the team.

      • Yeah, I agree. Maybe in a friendly against Benin or Cote D’ivoire. The next African opposition we take on in a friendly, actually.

  • But Uzoho got his chance against Argentina!…Czesny against Man United is also an example

  • matsho 5 years ago

    Abeg stop that joke. This is not a match for experiment. We can do that in our next match.

  • Oluyemi 5 years ago

    I look forward to this game. Watch out for Joe Aribo again.

  • If Senegal can force Selecao to 1:1 draw, Brazil will be beaten 3:0 by Super Eagles.
