    Who says we don’t have options in every department of the game? Good you are here, our safest hands, Okoye. We are proud of you all. You’re in do us proud. Contest every ball with your opponents, attack and defend on numbers but avoid hard tackles that could cause fouls/infringements against you. Be decent but show force. At this stage, Gold is best. Good luck!

    Nations cup starts on the 9th, 2nd of January (one week to start)13 players in camp comprising 3 goalkeepers and we want to do well..FIFA regulation says 2 weeks before the players should be released and apart from English premier, every other major league went to break.Example Aribo (Scotland).Even ighalo in lowly Saudi league is not yet in camp and we want to do well by winning ..

        Craze even knows differences between laligas, that means he’s a football crooner.

        • Lolz! I thought na only me see am, mad people can’t barely hide anger. Guys, Okoye don show, time to psych SE is now.

    • We are really behind schedule in our preparation. Any player that does not report to camp today should forget about being in the first eleven, no matter who the player is. I do not understand the reason the players that are not in playing in the EPL are not in camp at the moment.

    Let me tell Nigerian soccer fans what is Iwobi problem, He needs to be benched in Nigeria so that better players like Nwakali and Aribo will take his place, then after that time, his eyes go clear. His problem is the first team that he enjoys whenever he comes back home. He’s overrated even when we know that the two aforementioned players are better than him. After AFCON If God helps Nigeria, get Oliseh, Madueke, Ejaria, Eze and Chukwuemeka of Aston Villa where do you think Iwobi will play. He won’t even make the squad. He’s the reason Nigeria is looking for creativity up till now. You can’t play for Everton, how can you play for a world Class National team in the class of Chelsea, Manchester United or Real Madrid like Nigeria’s Super Eagles. Let’s call a spade a spade and encourage the lad Iwobi to buckle up or else. Your guess is as good as mine.

      His uncle, JJ might be the reason he has always been favored ahead of better midfielders.
