    Boniface is far better than most other Super Eagles strikers.
    He will do well.

    Gift Orban is needed as well. Leave all the dead woods behind for now.

      Exactly” we need new faces in that line up, let’s see if we can get a lift in their performance.

  • Had it been the underperformed players like Inhanacho and others were left out of SE squad several times probably they would had stepped up their game but reversed was the case by corrupt NFF.

    Why didnt NFF get any team to play with the SE in a friendly game after the SAO TOME game just like other African teams are doing?

      That’s a sign of people who has lost direction/purpose, none of them has the interest of Nigeria’s growth in football at heart, all they think about is their personal interest. No positive impact. Imagine sacking Eguavoen to hire Peseiro now sacked Peseiro to engage Eguavoen again, what kind of decision is that? Are we moving forward or backwards. And Eguavoen on his own has not gone for any refresher course on coaching and they brought him back again same with those other ones ladan bosso and salisu Yusuf the keep on recycling failures.
