  • Chaii… see this one face like someone that can score 100 goals in a match. I’m so scared.

  • Dr. Drey 9 months ago

    Bianu, why is the hoarding of SE lists becoming a norm these days….???

    Gone are the days when list of invitees were made know to the public weeks before games. Even provisional lists for tournaments get hoarded till the eve of the tournament when we just get suprised with the final 23 or 25 man list.

    And I just did a quick reflection on when this nonsense started lo and behold it’s been just under Austin Eguavoens headship of the Technical department of the NFF.

    No wonder the nff is hiding the team .so it is falcon they are coming to play against.. falcon wil beat Dem at least by one goal.

  • Expect Nwakali and other funny names.
    @Dr drey, don’t worry. The list will be out on the match day and if not, we’ll hear from the commentators.

  • We should be asking Ourselves why Sao Tome have released their list but Nigeria has not. Is that not sad?. So between the two who seems more serious?.

    At the moment, I can bet those big fat Alahaji’s and NFF Official. Are treating the list like thier personal toy. Debating on who should be axed and put on for their financial gains it is sad. Expect a list dominated with NPFL, despite all our crys to the contrary do they care?. No, afterall Super Eagles is thier personal toy for financial gains and they could care less of the strength of the squad or the 200 mil hearts attached to country and brand. If we like make we cry dem no send.

    Meanwhile Destiny Udogie has not been picked by Italy again a play. A player whom I have no doubt will jump at Super Eagles now in his Vulnerable state. People ask, “Why are our rivals currently better than us and pulling away further” well, a quick example for those who want to hear. BecUse when they are faced with the same situation they act professional and honestly. Ghana was faced with a similar situation with Inaki Williams And Tariq Lamptey they didn’t blink they moved swiftly look at the results..while Nigeria is in a better situation able to blend Udogie into the team with more games and qualifiers Compared to Williams albeit they play in different positions however Udogie, is more talented in his. Back to the topic at hand

    Nigeria on the other hand is debating how many mediocre players from a much weaker league than the teams Udogie and Williams play for should be included into the Super Eagles. Also parading a weak player who is waaay past his sell by date as Captain. Look at Ghana progress and look at Nigeria look at Senegal and look at Nigeria.. Nigeria is in Ultra regress mode caused by the people who were handed the power In thier promise to make us progress

    TO TOP IT OFF ALL THIS IN OUR GOLDEN GENERATION.

    I MEAN IMAGINE IF PINNICK RESPECTED SAKA AND ABRAHAMS WISH TO BE ALLOWED TIME TO THINK, INSTEAD OF BLURTING TO THE MEDIA A DAY AFTER THEY TOLD HIM THEY WISH TO THINK ABOUT IT,

    HE WENT AS FAR AS TO POST PICTURE ON SOCIAL MEDIA DECLARING THAT THE BOYS HAVE DECIDED. HE DID THE SAME WITH EZE ALERTERD MEDIA AND ENGLAND(Southgate) TO POUNCE MUCH SOONER ON THE PLAYERS.

    BACK TO UDOGIE IMAGINE ADDING HIM TO THE CURRENT SET WITH OSIMHEN, AWONIYI, ORBAN, BONIFACE, YUSUF AND THE REST OF THE USUSUAL SUSPECTS WHAT A TEAM WE WOULD HAVE HAD. BUT THE DIFFERENT OCCURED

    PS IMAGINE IF WISHES WERE TRUE SAKA WOULD HAVE BEEN HANDELED BETTER HIS MOM EVEN TOLD PINNICK AS SHE LATER REVEALED THAT PINNICK SHOULD GIVE HER SOMETIME, SHE WILL AND MUST CONVINCE SAKA TO PLAY FOR NIGERIA AS THAT HAS ALWAYS BEEN HER WISH. YET PINNICK WITH ARROGANCE BETRAYED HER LESS THAN A FEW DAYS LATER BY SPEAKING TO MEDIA.

    Not very professional atooool!!!

  • Where is the quality Internationals lines up to prepare and get team chemistry at least in pinnick days we played. Brazil, Argentina England,Poland. Ukraine, Ecuador, Mexico you name it.

    • All those friendlies finished all the pennies in the FAs account. No more friendlies, just gather few foreign and add locals na where we dey na.
      And for your info, udogie isn’t interested in playing for naija.
      We have Bameyi from yumyum 

  • @Sean that’s my point the atmosphere should be conducive enough for him to opt for Nigeria and Nigeria not to be scared to Court him. Why always settling for Left over which European teams don’t want. Shebi we dey always claim to be giant of Africa? .Oya na no be to kukuma show am?.. story. Na only mouth wey we get. Go and court Udogie with your chest out Giant of Africa claimers. Instead: na,Udogie is not interested to play for us!. MTCHEEEEW!!

    THE QUESTOION SHOULD BE WHY IS HE NOT INTERESTED WHY!!

  • And,those players are just as Nigerian as any other.

    As a nation, we are that valued, nothing but corruption, I won’t be surprised to see an uninspiring list of players from Eguavoen. Only one percent of us is not, but 99 % of us are.

    Salisu Yusuf, Eguavoen, and Finidi are the three of the NFF choices to choose from, but why all three? If at all NFF have to pick one from the three, I think Finidi should be the one kę. Not Eguavoen or Salisu Yusuf, who have stains in their hands. Simply put, corruption.

    NFF is playing a political game, and it may backfire against Sao tome, and this will give we the fans and government opportunities to chase away the current members of the NFF.

    NFF doesn’t understand one thing about football because they don’t have a better understanding of football.

    If you don’t plan ahead, then you prepare to fail, and I hope NFF knows this.

    I will be very happy if the likes of Eguavoen and the whole NFF members of the NFF can be desolve after the Sao Tome and set up a new members of ex players to be the new number of the Nigeria Football Federation.

    I am also expecting Amaju Pinnick to be arrested soon. He can’t just go scoutfree like that.

    We need to clean up our system in Nigeria first before we can move forward otherwise, Nigeria is going no where period. Hmmm. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

  • So Pajero is insisting on $70K and Gusau is drafting in Eguavoen again in the interim. First 2012, then 2022, and now 2023, how many opportunities is NFF going to give Eguavoen and Salisu as head coaches before we try another indigenous gaffer for a dead rubber game next Sunday?

    Why not draft in Amunike/Finidi for the Sao Tome game and then 3-4 probationary friendlies before the January Afcon and then make the final decision? I don’t think this Gusau will last 4 years on that seat. He has also quietly sacked Waldrum through the back door. Not raising dust cos he knows it’s an unpopular move. Same Eguavoen to scout a replacement. Na wa. No wonder Rufai was already declaring his interest for the goalkeeper’s coach job. Likely Eguavoen/Finidi/Salisu/Rufai

  • Ako Amadi 9 months ago

    After the shame that EPD ( Eguavoen, Pinnick & Dare) put Nigeria through we hear the NFF is appointing Eguavoen to manage the Super Eagles yet again!! This is the height of stupidity and cluelessness
