    Akpeyi should man the goal post. He is used to the rough and rugged antics of African players.

    • Please Akpeyi should stay far away from our goal post I beg you in the name of God…..He is the worst goal keeper I have seen Manning the post for Nigeria since baruwa…..No reflexes,no height,no composure,no footwork,…..I think Kingsley Micheal should be given a chance in midfield in this world cup qualifiers……he has come of age and developed physically too…..he should be given a run even if it’s few minutes let us see what he can bring to the table……he is also commanding a first team shirt at his seriaA club bologna this Season so he won’t be out of place Among the elites

  • Before Nko!! no suprise there. when some people on this forum don’t think there is levels to this game.

    I am sure Ndidi controlled the Midfield too.

    Then again Alooy Agu is a tribal biggot according to some people too.
    Well done Akpeyi and Uzoho

    No disrespect to liberia,but i expect the SE to win this one with relative ease, this crop of players should be to hot for the lone stars to handle and please the tecnical team do ensure the new invitees do get at least cameos esp Kingsley Michael,he really is a gem.

    Beware of our Blue Sharks of Cape Verde, we are more dangerous than you might think.
