    Guys read this article and see the quack reporting we get from complete Sports. Can’t someone read the articles first before publishing?,
    Three days later, the three-time African champions will take on same opponent in Douala, Cameroon.

    “Napoli of Italy forward Victor Osimhen and Leicester City’s Victor Osimhen breezed into the team’s camp on Tuesday afternoon to increase the number of players to 21.'”

    This is so embarrassing.

    We have capable replacements that we actually don’t realize we are missing 4 key players in Iwobi, Chukwueze, Etebo, and Ndidi and you still have the likes of Moffi, Onyekuru, and Ebuehi on standby. I don’t think any player that has dual nationality should think they are doing us a favor lol but we do need lookman.

     
    • Chima E Samuels 3 weeks ago

      Lookman must add more to his game, such as goals and assists else he will be like the old Liverpool Sterling.

       
      • @Chima E Samuels Lookman as he is now, is still better and will add more than some of the wingers on our roster. One in particular. I think you know who I am referring to

         
      • Chima E Samuels 3 weeks ago

        Musa is for political reasons, that is to tell you we are not 100% transparent in handling affairs. But we learn to live with this system and hope we get away with the false judgement even though we never had.

         
  • Lord AMO 3 weeks ago

    Nothing wrong with the first part. The game is in Douala due to conflicts in CAR

     
  • @Footballfanatic, stop this “we are doing you a favour” mentality by playing for SE like the crooks in NFF are using.

    THE Reason it is called dual nationality is because the boys have their heart in two nations. yes their blood is African/Nigerian but their life is European so is their Friends, social status and adopted culture. But does it mean that they don’t have the right to be confused and then make a u-turn on a decision??

    if there is anybody that should be blamed it is their parents for not instilling the pride of Africa in them, but then again can you blame them? the reason they left Naija back in those days was because living in a Jungle was better than living in Naija back then. Don’t you remember how Nepa was killing us back then not to mention the Military Regime. Most parents who took their families out of Naija in the 80’s 90’s and early 2000’s swore to never have anything to do with this country again.

    If anything NFF is the one reaching out to these players so they should do so with a bit humility because at the end of the day they will not be offering them better packages than what the other nations will offer i.e. England. I mean you can’t compare the English FA and the perks that come with playing for England with that of Naija NFF and Super Eagles. we are just lucky that we have talents.

    I feel we need another Amunike to hone our youth talents mostly from the Academies i.e. aspire, Diamond, Ultimate stickers aca and co, take them to the Youth tournaments (World Cups) so they can dominate be noticed by European Clubs and we can discover some more. Victor Osimhens, Kelechi Iheanacho, Samuel Chukwueze, Isaac Success Taiwo Awoniyi and the likes. I mean that makes more sense than relying on overseas based players and reaching out to them with arrogance because if you should recruit them don’t force them or put a gun to their that is why it is called Choice.

    Because the way Pinnick and Rohr are going about it and being arrogant to the likes of Saka and EZe then we will keep getting the left overs and not the Main Meals. So rather Focus on on our Academies and the Youth Tournaments then Overseas based players should not be our priority. Especially with Pinnicks Mentality and Arrogance when it comes to courting players who have a right of choice.

    Thank you.

      Yeah yeah yeah…..

       
    • There is nothing wrong with asking players to switch nationalities to play for Super Eagles. The times the France National teams have won the World Cup, how many pure French nationals were in the team. Even Zidane was Algerian. Not even now with the likes of Paul Pogba, Benjamin Mendy, Kimpembe and the rest. The things is, how best can we build a team to prosecute matches and win at the local and global stage.If it takes time to build a youth team, then it will also take time for them to mature to great players. In that vacuum, who do you rely on to win your matches???
      We have seen the local experiment fail several times, so Pinnick and Rohr are right to pick who they feel can play in our formation and work peacefully with his team mates.

       
      • Exactly my point and you have missed the whole point.

        Let me put it this way. You just embarrassingly said that the youth set up has failed us. You seem to forget our best players are from that set up. The players with some of the biggest reputation in world football is frm that set up that has failed us as you put it. I.e. Victor Osimhen, Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho should I go on, Samuel Chukwueze, Taiwo Awoniyi. @Ben please try and be reasonble with your reaponses.

        So I am not against bringing overseas based players if you know me on CSN iam one of the biggest suportters of it. But if we must do so we must Start bring only the best.

        How does one decide where to focus priority in this case @Ben correct me if I am wrong would it not be to do what i have just done, Draw a list and compare where we have discovered the best talent over the past say decade. Now if you draw up a comparison where would that be @Ben?

         
        • @Ugo,Ben was referring to home-based Eagles and not the age group teams.You and i both know that it will take a lot of work to transform the young players to the desired finished products.Ndidi improved greatly under Brendan Rodgers,Osimhen is improving under Spalletti,Iheanacho had to improve on some aspects of his game,Chukwueze is in Villarreal and is still being worked on e.t.c.Ronaldo is not as skillful as Messi,but through hard work and determination he is a force to be reckoned with.

           
  • Moses Simon is also in camp.okoye is the only last expected player.

     
  • In past 6 years

    Lets look at the ratio. Players from Youth Teams, Victor Osimhen, Samuel Chukwueze, Kelechi Iheanacho, Taiwo Awoniyi, Isaac Success (?) to name but a few.

    Dual Nationality : Alex Iwobi, Kevin Akpoguma, Tyron ebehi. To name but a few.

    I think we should switch Priority. Youth Set up is were our gold mine is and that is where the Loyal players to our cause will be. Overseas based player scouting should still be in place but must NOT become the primary avenue for finding talent. our football will suffer if that becomes the case.

    With Overseas based players unless the prospect of playing for SE becomes More attractive we will keep getting the players who choose Nigeria because they couldn’t make the England or French teams for e.g..

    Solid squad. Good to see players arriving on time. Evidence that the players buy into Rohr’s commitment to secure qualification as early as possible. His modus operandi.
    The much touted Nwakali is nowhere to be found. The talented midfielder will get his chance soon, with hardwork and consistency.
    When he finally gets his chance, I see him making his mark in the squad as well.

     
  • pompei 3 weeks ago

    This CAR team is obviously not a match for the SE.
    However, complacency can be dangerous. Against CV, CAR put up a good performance and managed to get a draw. And though they lost to Liberia, they dominated that game and were very unfortunate not to have scored a couple of goals, which could have changed the outcome of the game.
    If we play like we are capable of playing, CAR can’t keep up with us. However, if we remove our foot from the gas pedal, and allow them to play and gain confidence, a very unlikely upset may occur! This is where we need to be cautious.
    As long as we remain focused and do away with complacency, this double header should yield the desired 6 points.

     
    • True talk. If this team has half the determination we saw in the 2013 winning team, they will qualify for the world cup, no matter who we’re drawn against.

    @Ugo Iwunze, I have been waiting for the past 3 days for you to apologize to the coach of the SE, for coming out to raise a false alarm that Rohr decided to tell us lies about Ndidi’s injury. You painted it like Ndidi and yourself had a dinner the day before, where the midfielder confided in you that he was hale and hearty and must have been left out of the squad for political reasons. Now that Rodgers himself has come out to confirm what our illustrious GR earlier said, I think you need to be humble enough to say sorry.

    Many SE fans on this forum, at times, talk so confidently about issues we know little or nothing about. Many of the players we have been clamouring for to be included in the team are better known to the coaches than they can ever be to us the fans. Let’s not act as if the entire coaching crew will be stupid enough to destroy the good work they have started, by exempting our best players from the team at this crucial moment.

    I know you don’t like Ahmed Musa. His name alone pisses you off like the smell of a rotten egg. Inasmuch as Musa has passed his prime, I believe his presence in the team is still needed at this point. The team capitulated immediately Musa and Balogun were subbed off against S/Leone in Benin. And as you may have seen, the coach uses him sparingly nowadays except the last match against Cape Verde he barely starts matches for Eagles. I know his time in the team will soon be over, but till then, I wish him and the entire team all the best

     
    • @muyiwa Don’t mind my good friend @Ugo. He should apologize so that we can read his comments on the forum with seriousness again. He goofed with that comments.

      I have said it that it’s the same issue in Nigeria today. We always rave about issues we have not confirmed.

      Remember the jbrin from Sudan story inaso Rock. It has died today.

      Even out journalists are lazy today. So we can pardon @ugo my friend.

      I have asked him to tone down his hatred for rohr and Musa. This will help him to avoid that giant error he made with the rohr and niddi issue. Anyway it’s a long time Ugo, hope all is well.

       
      • @Christian Ministries Nigeria bros all is well.

        @MuYiwa I apologised and was even the one who shared the link of Leicester Camp confirming Ndidi’s Injury.

        On the subject of Musa gentlemen I am only fighting for the benefit of our team before it is to late he cannot afford to be on the plane to the world cup

        Do you realise how high the level of the business end of World Cup is?. Did you Watch Man City Vs Liverpool that is the Level.

        Be true to yourself, Do you honestly think Musa can keep up with that Level?. Okay look at what happened in the knock out of 2014 when we made it and In Form Onazi playing for Lazio at the time got injured because, Keshi(God Rest his soul) took a weakend bench on basis we all know too wll about, who was called up Gabriel Ruben whom we all Know did not merit his place there at the time. What happened Level dropped France took control of the midfield. World cup is not Moi Moi teams are selecting only the best and if a player is not at his best he will be exposed as soon as round of 16 maybe even sooner. A word is enough for the wise. Musa will not keep up.

        We need that position for either Lookman or Denis. Even an Awoniyi just look at the calabre that can miss out.

        Thats why we stress the fact on MERIT!!!!

         
  • Mind you fingers crossed I hope Awoniyi makes a good showing in these upcoming fixtures. I think he will be a better option than Onuachu.

     
  • KING TUOYO 3 weeks ago

    I can only hope and pray Awoniyi is given the opportunity to play. My fear is of the Coach will be bold enough to start him in one of the matches so that we can see more of him.

    Paul Onuachu to me is not up to the level of Awoniyi even though he has turned the Belgian league to like a 5-aside mini tournament where he can’t stop scoring.

    We have seen enough of Onuachu and also knows what he can do on the Super Eagles jersey.

    Awoniyi is playing in top 5 league and also scoring regularly. Who knows, if he is given the opportunity, he might just become a regular invite to the Super Eagles where he can dislodge Mr. Paul Onuachu.

     
    • Footballfanatic 3 weeks ago

      The only way Onuachu can confirm his status would have been to move to atleast the French league and then perform. I give the man respect for scoring so many goals in Belgium but you need to test yourself as a proven goalscorer in a harder league.

       
  • I prayer Nigeria win this game. We don’t need a draw at all. We need to smashed them like 3-0 if possible guys.
