    ok good let hope that Ighalo will not come so he will not disturb Osinhen playing time

  • Richie 3 years ago

    Ighalo arriving late….like a BOSS lolz

    Though it’s not healthy for team bonding…regardless of your experience with the squad, you should arrive camp same time others are arriving…afterall, rules are rules, and should be no respecter of persons..my two kobo!

    • Richie 3 years ago

      At the end of the day….We hope Rohr knows exactly what he’s doing!

    • Ighalo is not willing o. What rubbish naaa

    • Oakfield 3 years ago

      What about osimhen who’s yet to arrive like him???? He’s arriving like the boss too abi?

      • Richie 3 years ago

        lol…Ighalo is the focus-man here, isn’t he? Just like Asamoah Gyan, he makes yet another sensational return…or, should we say, ‘re–return’ (because he has retired twice) lol

        Osimhen can be slightly excused, as the current “fresh Starboy”

        • @Richie Only difference between Gyan and Ighalo is Gyan is prolific and carried Ghana to World Cup Quarter Final. Ighalo couldn’t do the same. Infact he missed a deciding sitter. Big difference Gyan is a Legend in Africa and Ighalo is Not! hard facts for Ighalo Lovers to swallow

          • Richie 3 years ago

            Hahahahahahahahahahahaha @Ugo Iwunze You’ve taken all of the words right out of my mouth!

  • Ezigbo boss!! he is lucky to be there, what did you expect when they undermine the entire super eagles and Fans by doing things in reverse and backward.

    Why must he respect them when deep down he knows he don’t deserve to be dere but they invite am, how he go respect dem again?.

    Yeye decisions breed yeye results/ atmosphere.na my own 2 kobo be that

    • Richie 3 years ago

      Well… we’ve both shared our four kobo then. LoL

      • maybe i should add my own two cents… in respective of who arrived early or late we shall need to win that match..play the very best 11 biko

  • Adeyemi 3 years ago

    Rohr is not serious. Inasmuch as I don’t like Rohr,I still want Nigeria to her games. I will be happy win or lose. Win, he proves us wrong. Lose, I will call for his head as he has nothing left to prove. Football is as good as your last’s game. Rohr has shown us his limit.
    For Ighalo, he was good especially when he was in Grenada and Watford. He’s a strong player. His holding of ball is probably one of the best in the team. However, I have never been a fan of his. He is very immobile His case will end like Onachu. You can’t play Ighalo without a solid midfield unless Aribo and Iwobi so there tricks in the middle. Nigerians are very fickle and will easily turn on Ighalo if decisions do not go our ways. He should have learnt from the past and not honour the invite.

    Regardless, I personally don’t think he’s needed at all. The moral of the players will be affected. How will Awóníyì, Terem, Desser feel right now about the decision? Even players who are friends with the aforementioned players?

    Whether young or old, we need a pattern. We might lack a creative midfielder but we have to change our setups based on the players will have. Our players are fast and mobile, tweak the team for that purpose. Have a backup formation for players like Onachu and Ighalo. Id not, don’t invite players you won’t use. Time will tell!!!

    @Richie, do you have to lie? Super Eagles players started arriving camp in Tangier, Morocco yesterday for their 2022 World Cup qualifier against Liberia. It means the camp is still thrown open possibly till Wednesday. I would rather request CSN to give us an update . It doesn’t matter if is Odion or his aburo, Iheanacho that is going to assist Osimhen for the matches. What we owe the boys at this time is good luck.

    • Richie 3 years ago

      Hmmmmmmmm, ok oo Kenneth…

      Let me follow you and chorus “Good luck” to them sha……though, on a good day, we should be easily thrashing these two teams in front of us, even with a “Team Z” sef lolz.. but then… here we are, on the march again (like MKO)

  • William d conqueror 3 years ago

    Anyways they are not gonna qualify. You heard it first here.

  • This game’s a win win. Neutral field and European standered at that.
