    Hope Emmanuel Dennis came in with Troost-Ekong too? Or CS omitted his name in their report? Or he’s coming in soon after?

  • Please SE players and Coaching Crew must be business minded in camp. This is no holiday or leisure outing but a period for a very serious national assignment. It’s the world cup ticket or nothing.

    It’s a time for players to work more on themselves to improve and equally try to understand the strength of their teammates so as to bond well on the field of play with the help of their Coaches.

    It’s a time to master and tighten those new skills and techniques of scoring goals, long passes, headers, tackles, interceptions, set pieces, penalties, defending/shielding, diving (GK) and saving balls.

    It’s a time to equally study the opponent’s weaknesses and adequately utilize those holes to win big!!!

    Finally, if you feel the need to relax (excessive social media and interviews and partying) and enjoy the FIFA break with friends and family, kindly excuse yourself from the team now for a more serious player to replace you. (I come in Peace)!

    Good luck SE! Cheers!

    Wow, Ajayi, Ekong and Balogun in camp. Our center backs are taking this playoffs very seriously.
    Onyeka is in there. Hopefully, Yusuf and Bonke come in as well. I heard Eguavoen is really keen on Yusuf. The Kante-esque midfielder is highly rated by OUR OWN.
    Players not yet in camp when the team travels should head directly to Ghana. By tomorrow evening, EVERYBODY should be in the Kumasi camp.
    Hopefully, they will have 2 days (23rd and 24th) to train at Mama Yara before match day.

    Just can’t wait to see the lads wearing the green-white-green jersey. Good luck lads.

  • I don’t always like Super Eagles vs Black Stars match, it mostly turns out to be a difficult game for the Eagles. I pray that SE give their best to book their tickets. They should not allow Ndidi’s absence to be felt. Soar Super Eagles, soar!
