2023 AFCONQ: Peseiro Unveils 23-Man Squad For Guinea-Bissau Double Header

2023 AFCONQ: Peseiro Unveils 23-Man Squad For Guinea-Bissau Double Header

Head Coach José Santos Peseiro has invited team captain Ahmed Musa, in-form forwards Victor Osimhen and Ademola Lookman as well as 20 other players to the Super Eagles’ camp, ahead of this month’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against the Djurtus of Guinea Bissau.

Nigeria and Guinea Bissau clash at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium, Abuja from 5pm on Friday, 24th March, and then make it a second date at the Estadio 24 de Setembro in Bissau on Monday, 27th March, also starting from 5pm.

Mega Millions Naija

Spain-based defender Kenneth Omeruo returns, as midfield enforcers Wilfred Ndidi and Frank Onyeka, and Portugal-based defender Bruno Onyemaechi gets an opportunity to vie for shirts against Semi Ajayi, Bright Osayi-Samuel, Kevin Akpoguma and Calvin Bassey.

Portugal-based left back Zaidu Sanusi is also back, and usual suspects Alex Iwobi, Joe Aribo, Kelechi Iheanacho, Samuel Chukwueze, Moses Simon, Terem Moffi and Paul Onuachu are also called.

Captain of the Nigeria U20 side that finished in third place at the recently-concluded Africa U20 Cup of Nations in Egypt, Daniel Bameyi is called alongside team goalkeeper Chijioke Aniagboso. In-form goalkeeper Victor Sochima, one of the reasons Rivers United FC have inched close to a CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final ticket, will contend for the number one shirt with Francis Uzoho.

Players are expected to start arriving at the team camp in Abuja on Sunday, 19th March. Table-toppers Nigeria are on maximum six points from their defeats of Sierra Leone and Sao Tome and Principe, with the Djurtus in second place on four points from their defeat of Sao Tome and Principe and draw with the Leone Stars.

Italy-based Osimhen, with 23 goals in 28 matches this season (including four goals that has helped his club reach the last eight of the UEFA Champions League for the first time ever), netted four when the Eagles slammed Sao Tome and Principe 10-0 in a record international scoreline in Agadir, Morocco nine months ago.

      Egunje Nation Shameless Country Full OF Evil Leaders!!!  I’m the most shocked of all so this is the list that took years to arrive. They were negotiating the highest bidder and you know Good players will never bribe their way!!! Shame dey catch me!!!!

    • Sportradio88.0 fm 2 weeks ago

      When guinea Bissau see the bench of eagles they will just be laughing..
      apart from those playing regularly.. the reserves players are already known .
      I can count 10 players here . So in case there is resistance from the opponent then the bench has no solution.
      I told paceiro any player coming for national duty shud be playing regularly in his club .we go start prayer again.

      • TALK UR OWN 2 weeks ago

        This have really shows that coach PASEIRO is only rely on NAME & EGO to invite players into Super eagle team.
        ** WHY S.OSIGWE, EBUEHI,ONYEDIKA, AL-HASSAN, CHUBA AKPOM(most inform supporting sticker after OSIMHEN) were not invited.

  • Judoo 2 weeks ago

    Shocking Ahmed Musa is making the cut when we have other better options anyways the coach knows best

  • Truetalk 2 weeks ago

    Joe aribo.omeruo.ajayi and Musa don’t have any business in dis team as far as football is concern

    • Chidiomimi 2 weeks ago

      What other options do we have? I am just asking

    • OSADEBAMWEN OMOLURU 2 weeks ago

      Seem like you haven’t been watching omeruo recently. Apart from playing in the 2nd Division, that guy has been awesome as the captain of his team. He was even the man of the match in his team last match which though they lost.

    • The list released to face Guinea Bissau next week is strong enough. It has a terrific and terrifying starting 11 with 5 players that can come in to form a solid substitute repertoire.

      There are one or two eyebrow-raising names in there but in truth, this is a feature of any list that is released for any national team in any country for any assignments.

      For instance, those who would like to see the back of Ahmed Musa in the national team will have to wait that bit longer. The likes of Aribo, Onyeka, Omeruo, Onuachu, Ajayi, Ndidi and even Uzoho would (arguably) have been nowhere near this latest list had selection been left to a free and fair public vote of the fans.

      But there is nothing democratic about player invitations. Fans will have to make do with the choice of some faceless powerful stakeholders who weild significant influence in this area.

      The coach (Jose Peseiro) will vehemently reject any idea of interference in his choice of players to invite. If that is the case, then one has to respect his choices and leave it at that.

      My worry is in the goalkeeping department. It is glaringly underwhelming and has been so for a while now. The defence on paper looks solid enough but the midfield is wafer thin. Remove Iwobi from the mix and the midfield structure runs the risk of crumbling down to earth like a dilapidated edifice. The wings are well manned and the attacking department has sharp teeth or in the case of Osimhen, deadly fangs.

      Outside the midfield and goalkeeping departments, the set up looks solid enough.

      Should Peseiro persist with his favourite 4-4-2 constellation, then we have Uzoho barking out to Akpoguma and Bassey with Zaidu and Osayi-Samuel sandwiching the two.

      Ndidi and Iwobi should form the centre defenders flanked by Simon and Chukwueze on either side. A twist could see Peseiro experiment a partnership of Osimhen and Lookman up front in roles that represent a carbon copy of how they file out for their respective clubs in Italy – where they have ripped defences apart with reckless abandonment.

      There seems to be a plan for Onuachu in this set up. His height and hold up play – rather than his goals scoring prowess per se – could be his trump card to relevance.

      Aribo is highly favoured it would seem. So also is Frank Onyeka. Both have been flat, unimaginative, inconspicuous and uninfluential in Nigeria’s midfield in recent times. And, although this has also carried through to their club football, they continue to make an appearance in the Super Eagles.

      I wonder why Ola Aina was excluded. He has been a worthy servant and I thought he’s done enough to always be on the list if fit. Apart from him, the defence looks solid.

      What I will be looking out for is how Peseiro’s Super Eagles approach the matches. Will it be a continuation of quick turnaround passes from defence to attack or a slightly slower build up play.

      It’s great to look forward to the Super Eagles play again.

      • Chima E Samuels 2 weeks ago

        We are looking ahead of this match….. What if we are to play Solid teams is it this list that will prosecute the matches??? This is the same list that we have been repeating and failing with over and over again we no dey tire???

  • Ololo 2 weeks ago

    We have players doing so well in their clubs and they can’t be rewarded with an invitation.. that’s not fair.

    Akpom top scorer in the championship, tella doing so well I’m the championship scoring alot of hattricks, then orban.. it’s sad they were left out

  • MONKEY POST 2 weeks ago

    What da FUCK

    NO IGHALO???

  • Nonsense lists, leaving players who are on form for off form players,what are those u20 boys doing in super eagles instead of u 23 team,where is akpom and tella and what has unuachu done for Southampton since he move to epl.

    • Dennis 2 weeks ago

      Can’t understand what criteria used in selection of this list. Is it based on form or experience or man know man. Certain players are not supposed to still be invited.

  • Chima E Samuels 2 weeks ago

    Rotten list recycling shit over and over again Nigeria is a mad country…. Sorry I have to be honest!!!

  • Chima E Samuels 2 weeks ago

    So even if you’ll include u20 player why not Benjamin Fredrick instead of that Yum Yum player called Daniel that was shaky during the tournament as well. Fredrick is the player who was excellent in that defence. And for the other players in that list what this tells me is that Nigeria will still continue failing to Senegal and other serious North African teams. Our country is ruled by evil people and they disrespect we the followers… What kind of Nonsense list is this!!!!

    • Sunnyb 2 weeks ago

      My brother because North must be represented at all costs with minimum of three players.Nigeria is dream killer. U saw what Bosso did watch out  for Salisu lists is coming.

      • Chima E Samuels 2 weeks ago

        Salisu list came out long ago and it was real nonsense. 70% of the players are inactive and 13 players were overage. Nigeria is disgracing themselves because of the evil leadership and passed on to Gusau another Nama if you understand the meaning of Nama in Igbo language. I don’t like Nigeria as a country any more if you ask me!!!

  • Sunnyb 2 weeks ago

    Onyeaka, Aribo, Musa, Onauchu, these guys doesn’t merit this call for now. Olayinka, Orban, Boniface, Tella, are the new boys in block. Togo will invite Orban and these smelly NFF members will start the blame game. 

    • Emecco 2 weeks ago

      I don tire for forumites, !!! Out of these 23, 11 would start and probably 4 at most 5 would come in as subs, I haven’t seen any one apart from Chuba Akpom that could have been on the list that wasn’t called. Even if Akpom was invited, he would have been on the bench for Osimhen, even if Osimhen would be subbed off like for the last 5-10 mins, Moffi or Onuachu would come in and not Akpom , Players like Akpom would be tested first in friendlies before official games. Apart from Akpom, who else should have been on the list that wasn’t called??? Maybe Tyrone Ebuehi of Empoli but we have Bright Osayi- Samuel who was our best player In the only game he has played so far; The friendly against Portugal, so why must we drop him?? .To me, this list is just PERFECT for the double header with Guinea-Bissau. I am just looking forth to Bassey/Apkoguma Centre back paring.It looks like the best combo we could boast of for now.

      • Chima E Samuels 2 weeks ago

        It is in Nigeria that we recycle nonsense. You think England or Brazil will call out of form players and inform players with all this garbage you typed above. You’re really tailor made for Nigeria!!!

  • Dr Tee 2 weeks ago

    I guess Super Eagles have been turned into an experimental team. This is pure rubbish. Where is the place of excellence? Peseiro is just a figurehead

    • Emecco 2 weeks ago

      Bro, even if these 3 you mentioned were called, You know clearly that they would probably be on the bench for the entire 90 mins, This squad is Okay to decimate Guinea Bissau, home and away, you guys should remember that we trashed Sao Tome 10-0 in our last qualifiers with almost everyone currently on this list.

      • Chima E Samuels 2 weeks ago

        We should be looking beyond this African teams. We beat Sao Tome 10 and is that an achievement for you???? Why did this same scrap team not qualify for WC. It’s high time we start building teams and looking beyond judging ourselves with performance against average teams that don’t go far in serious tournaments. You think it is Sao Tome or Guinea B that we will face in future Semifinals of Tournaments. You want to force your mentality on people so that we will remain average as a nation….. When was the last time most of the invited defenders kicked ball at their second division teams??? Or the bench warming midfielders???? Shame no dey catch as you dey type your nonsense!!!

        • Emecco 2 weeks ago

          @ Chima E Samuel, This squad is for the double header against Guinea Bissau, and it’s good enough for it. You can rant as much as you like and it won’t change anything. When we are going for Afcon, we would select a squad of in form players at that time. Our Starting Back 4 consists of Osayi-Samuel (Fernabache), Calvin Bassey (Ajax), Kelvin Akpoguma(Hoffenheim), and Zaidi Sanusi (FC Porto), Which of these plays I’m division 2 ?? As you claimed??. Even Kenneth Omerruo and Semi Ajayi, our back up defenders have. Though. Currently in 2nd divisions are Super Regular in their clubs and have EPL and LA LIGA experience as well immense Super Eagles Caps, so what is your point really, so the likes of Ndidi, Iheanacho, Iwobi, Simon, Chukwueze, Osimhen, Lookman, Moffi, Aribo, Onyeka and even Red hot Osimhen have suddenly became so bad that they are not worthy of beating Guinea Bissau in an AFCON qualifiers

          • Chima E Samuels 2 weeks ago

            Why is England and Brazil not calling Vardy or Hulk because of experience. You eh so it is when we qualify that inform players will be invited to tournaments. You’re a fraud or weakling because you know that when tournament approaches we will be hearing another excuses of don’t introduce new players. Yeye dey smell!!! 

    • Dennis 2 weeks ago

      @jimmyball please shut up. You and omo9ja said any coach can achieve success with the super eagles squad. Emphasis being on the word, “any” except rohr. The way you lay your bed is how you lie on it



  • Lol! It wasn’t long that that someone was celebrating Musa’s departure forever and BOOM! This happened.
    So, upon all those visits to England and Italy, this is all we got?
    And this man really want to win Nations Cup? Well… there’s nothing God cannot do. I read somewhere that Salisu rejected Orban saying he doesn’t know him but NFF wanted to force Orban on him. A National team coach doesn’t know player that ordinarily we fans know. Lol. Town Hall is different o from Balablu! Hehehe!5

  • Omo9ja 2 weeks ago

    Corruption and Nigeria are like blood and water. Nigerians want the best, but they run away from the truth. Musa and Omeruo again?

    If care is not taken, Nigeria as a country may not get it right.

    How can we be the best with this kind of attitude, NFF?

    Why can’t NFF select the players based on current form? Can’t you emulate Senegal’s achievement, NFF?

    Senegal won the Afcon trophy and also won under 20. Don’t you like that NFF?

    If Senegal were Nigeria, I don’t think they would have achieved those two accomplishments.

    NFF always hired a coach they can control. Definitely,NFF selected this team.

    This is why I don’t worry myself too much about Nigeria football anymore.

    Nobody can challenge those in power to make changes. Is that a country?

    Even the majority of Nigerians don’t want their country to progress because they benefit from that. Hmmm. I am deeply sorry for my beloved country, called Nigeria. Something is fishy about the list.

    Oh well, it’s may take longer than expected, but I still believe that we will get it right one day.

    Those behind this corrupt system will rust in jail while Nigeria will be a better country for us all. It is a matter of time, though, but we will get there one day by God’s grace. all I can say is Goodluck luck to Super Eagles. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Dennis 2 weeks ago

      @omo9ja please shut up. You said any coach can achieve success with the super eagles squad except rohr. I don’t you you clamoring for olayinka, umar, Dennis, nwakali, Awoniyi etc and all the players you clamored for

    I am loving all your comments here. Keep it coming.

  • Chima E Samuels 2 weeks ago

    At this point a sensible national team that is complaining of Midfield and defence in Nigeria shoe will be working with this information. Tella of Burnley can play as attacking midfielder and score goals too, Destiny udogie of Udinese is a very solid midfielder that drives a lot , Chukwuemeka of Chelsea is another solid option, Olise of Crystal Palace and Ebere of Crystal Palace should be tried again if they’ll switch allegiance. If not let us go for Tella, Alhassan, Nwobodo mixed with Onyedika of Brugge to compete with Ariball, Ndidi and Etebo for a midfield spot. In defence I believe Okoli and Orban’s team mate Jordan Torunarigba will be a good addition to my defence since NFF has sent Anthony Izuchukwu to Oblivion. Let us also nurture Benjamin Fredrick , Daga and Aniagboso from the U20 team. Nigeria has no excuse to be suffering in football today. We have talents and no excuses makes sense for me!!! This was my take earlier today before they release this maggot list!!!

    • respect is reciprocal 2 weeks ago

      This list shows Peseiro is not fully in charge of Super Eagles . these players being mentioned by Chima are not fully interested in playing for Nigeria except Tella that has committed his future to Nigeria. Tell should be in this team , the guy plays like Daniel Amokachi . Anyway 

  • My own candid opinion about Peseiro the coach of Nigeria is that he is not sincere with himself and he is yet to understand the mind of Nigerian. This is because I can’t understand the reason why players like Chuba Akpom and Tella are not in this team and a player from Yum Yum fc and Ahmed Musa are called. I pray the coach succeed but if this trend continue his results will be worse than that of Eguavon who failed to qualify Nigeria for 2022 World Cup. I am no cursing him but let him be sincere with the players he invites into National team. This list is full of flaws. To me, these are not the best players we can present. No wonder, it took a long time before it could be released 8 days before the match. I keep my fingers cross and look forward to the match but not confident of good results from the two legged matches. Even at the U23 level, Yusuff is been forced by the Nff to call the Gent player Orbat to the team. Read Owngoal.com.ng. of today 16th March,2023. This will reveal to you how far things has degenerated in Nigeria when it comes to selection of players. According to Owngoal, the coach is refecting the directive of Nff to call the player saying until they watch him. That is the list of players are always been delayed in Nigeria when their opponent would have released their list. Just for manipulation simple. What a shame. I pray it will not take long before we repent if not the success we long to achieve will remain a dream it will be difficult to achieve what Senegal is achieving now in Africa. God bless Nigeria

  • Papafem 2 weeks ago

    Players who are dormant in their club and are replaceable shouldn’t be called to the team. NFF should have a standard policy of players’ invitation into the Super Eagles.

    For how long are we going to endure this nonsense? Musa has no business in this team anymore. And on current form, players like Onuachu and to some extent, Aribo, should be dropped. They should have encouraged players like Akpom and Orban, even with a standby team status. We keep on repeating the same mistakes but look forward to a better result.

    With the failure to qualify for the WC, and our poor outing at AFCON and friendly matches, we should start thinking of rebuilding the national team. That can only come with the injection of new blood with a solid programme to knock them into a winning unit.

    It seems to me that Peseiro is another pawn in the hands of these NFF eggheads. We need a coach who can’t he easily manipulated or twisted. This isn’t funny anymore. These flying Eagles players should be tested in friendly matches first or sent to the u23 camp. Not throwing them into the deep straight off.

  • So Ahmed Musa is in the list again. Hahahahahahahahahahah!!!!! NIGERIA IS A JOKE!!!

  • Greenturf 2 weeks ago

    When i mentioned the use of tip-ex just like it was used in the last presidential election this was what i mean’t.
    The original list released by Peseiro was handed to the technical committee headed by Eguavoen by the head coach of the super eagles a routine process.
    A few names was tip-exed after a long scrutiny and debate,i think this is a standard proceedure now in Nigeria.I doubt Musa was on the original list.A couple other players may have been removed and replaced with some of the players on the roster who shouldn’t on current form.
    However,the list is just over 90% okay because we don’t need many changes in this encounter.It’s a game the coach wants to work with players he knew since took over reign as the head coach of the super eagles.
    Time is never a friend of any coach in the FIFA windows where you have very little time to train prior to games.I believe Peseiro invited those who understands his philosophy to make the assignment easier,should they qualify by winning both games a few names will have a chance to stake a claim in the team.I’m sure these players have been communicated to this regards by the head coach.
    Meanwhile,i think Bamayi was picked because Salisu may have demanded for Frederick and possibly Ogwuche,Ogbelu,Jude Sunday,Nwosu GK and Muhammadu Ibeji to boost the Olympic team as they prepare to face Guinea in a crunch match for the Olympic final playoffs early next year.

    When you have a technical director that is a moron…..It will have a moronic effect on a coach that is a string puppet like Peseiro. The last few months they lied to us the Peseiro was in talks with this and that and they also took a while to release the list only for them to give us this. Wtf
    Atleast 4 players have no business in this team.

    Yum yum fc

    If anyone deserved a call up from the U20 it should’ve been Benjamin Frederick who was our stand out defender in that tournament and what is Peseiro doing about our midfield? As far as I’m concerned this is still Gernit Rohr’s team and this man Peseiro is a clueless scam yet to invite any player of his own thinking except for Bright Osayi.

  • Footballfanatic 2 weeks ago

    The fool want to win the next Afcon and they think Senegal, Algeria,South Africa, Cameroon and Morocco will be playing around….Looking at the squads for the teams I mentioned, I can see that they’ve gone on an aggressive search for their players in the best clubs and players born overseas…..Senegal is currently in talks with an AC Milan player who is half German and half Senegalese and are strengthening their team and not relaxing depsite being probably the best in Africa right now…..Same thing for Morocco raiding France and Belgium for foreign born players of morrocan origin….Same for Cameroon but we are here inviting mediocre players from mediocre clubs. Tell my why an onyedik that played champions league football hasn’t been invited? I do understand Ola Ain can’t make it due to card accumulation in our last 2 games but why would yum yum fc get a nod eel ahead of Ebuehi who plays in Serie A? Sometimes I feel like just renouncing my Nigerian citizenship cuz ever facet of the Nigerian society is corrupt.

    • @football fantastic God will bless you. We have clueless nff, Coach and technical department, I thought Gusau has come to make a real change but I am beginning to have other thoughts with this bad list of players. As you have mentioned five players are not supposed to be in the list. I am beginning to doubt the ability of Gusauto give Nigerian the desire results.

  • Please you people should calm down, after this two matches then pessiro will invite Orban Boniface Akpom Tella okereke success and so on make them come score hundred goals,I remembered back then when Iwobi was arsenal benchwomer but Nigeria invited him and he delivered, to be in bench doesn’t mean that you’re not good enough, pattern differs for instance there’s one certain Nigeria guy that plays for sheriff don’t be surprised that the guy will be more useful than those that scorerers in Belgium and co, it all about integrating in the national team not all about scoring hundred goals in your club side

    Ahmed Musa have zero business in that list,he has zero contribution to his club in turkey ,not scored for over a year,well I wasn’t expecting an exciting list considering our corrupt value system.what are the under 20 looking for in a super eagles list when they aren’t exceptional players?indidi haven’t been playing regularly for sometimes now no thanks to injury he definitely have no business now,frank onyeka have not been consistent with brenford he has no placement for now,yum yum fc guy needs no further explanation,maybe am not updated haven’t heard any expliot of him,joe aribo is a great player but not having consistent timing should work against him on that list ,well laslas I hail every body behind this list una wel done o

    You people like to complain too much. Ahmed Musa is a world cup legend. His name strikes fear to Nigeria’s opponents. Daniel Bamiyi plays like Trentham Alexandra Arnold. Aribo has been performing wonders in Southampton’s U-23 team. Frank Onyeka is a world class centre midfielder. The only invitation I question is Ademola Lookman. Anayo Iwuala is a more physical winger for African football. Iwuala is a better option than Lookman.

      You sound daft…..In 2023 Musa strikes fear in opponents. This must be a joke. He has only played 7 minutes in his mid table club’s last 10 games in Turkey. So Musa is one of the best wingers we currently have?

        Leave story, Senior Man. The 7 minutes Musa played in 10 games in Turkey this season were hell for the defenders. That is why they call him Musa the Monster. Musa has paid his dues. When Guinea Bissau defenders saw his name on this sheet, some of them became depressed.

    Please forumites… Someone should inform me whenever @Dr.Drey has registered his comments on the inclusion of Non-playing captain Ahmed Musa in the recent roaster and also the inclusion of a Yum yum FC player in the Super Eagles upcoming international games.

    On this forum, long ago, we have been innundated with the statutes that we only look for players in top 5 leagues as meriting invites to Super Eagles. How the likes of Eguaveon sit together with the white Donkey Peseiro to invite inactive players beats me. Please @Dr.Drey share your thoughts wity us on recent Super Eagles doings…

  • It is because they knew, Nigerians will vehemently oppose this list that is why the nff deliberately delayed the team list to 8 days before the match to achieve their aim. We pray we play well and win but I am less convince over the two legged matches. Gussau Nigerians are not happy with this list at all. I pray you will not end your tenure without any gold medal like the case of Pinnick administration. A stitch in time saves nine. Please take charge as president and save our football development

  • You have osimhen, Iwobi, Ndidi, Moffi,Osayi Samuel, Lookman and yet you want coach to invite Neymar Messi and Mpape for guinea Bissau match, even if the coach invite Neymar Jr and Messi you people will still ask why they didn’t invite this or that tire for you people

    • We are talking about players with current form not players like Ahmed Musa and Onuachu who yet to get regular playing time especially in the mid-field. Let their be equity in selection period

  • Footballfanatic 2 weeks ago

    Lorient received invitation for Innocent Bonke but his name mysteriously disappeared from the list released….Mind you only confirmed players on the list receive invitation through their clubs except the player is injured after the club received the invitation which does not apply to Bonke. It is now obvious we have people who tamper with the list at the glass house and we football fans should start a petition to get Eguvoen out before he destroys our football.

  • Half fit Ndidi is better than Bonke who can’t even create or even mark ball, removing his name is a welcome development period

  • If Bonke like make him play 100 matches he can’t add anything to super eagles midfield,I don’t think that you fans are watching football ,you people should watch those players style of play before disturbing us to invite him or invite that,

    • Footballfanatic 2 weeks ago

      Nobody is talking about who is better but the fact that they can erase what the coach penned down is the problem….A fool like you doesn’t see the bigger picture or this act affecting future invitations who might deserve a place in the national team.

        Ebuehi just scored for empoli in seria A yet a yum yum player was invited ahead of him.. very unfair.. ebuehi is not new to this team so the case of not wanting fresh leg due to limited training time cannot be applied to ebuehi… Why was he omitted since ola aino is suspended for the games… We have just one right back , the yum yum player makes it two right backs but I really do not understand why a serial A starter is ignored in such a game.. they should better send that yum yum boy to the u 23 and do the right thing

        • Emmanuel Dennis scored too invite him

          • Ololo 2 weeks ago

            Dennis case is different.. we have too many options in his position and it is not the same with ebuehi.. aino is suspended, and we have just Samuel to replace him.. playing in the seria A is not an easy feat.. even Samuel doesn’t start games in his Turkish club

      • You’re very stupid for not understanding my point “idiot”

  • Guys, let’s educate ourselves a little:-
    1.Ahmed Musa should be in the team because he’s the captain for now until a new leader is chosen. The team needs someone experienced to lead and act as an intermediary between them and the officials (NFF).
    2.Mr Peseiro is just a figurehead when it comes to team selection and this was well stated in his contract. This is the reason NFF can’t get a good coach because non of the highly rated coaches in the world will agree to it and they will never accept any sharing formula as per their salary.
    3.NFF like 9ja as a country is covered in corruption. Every list is doctored to accommodate everybody’s bribery agency. Having the u20 guys in the team is an example.
    4.Every serious countries starts building a winning team from qualifiers but only 9ja starts building a team 2 weeks before a tournament and expects to do well. Someone commented earlier that the list is just for Guinea Bissau and that when Afcon starts we will invite our best; that’s a failure recipe my guy.
    5.Any serious minded person should just sit and watch the comedy called 9ja and NFF because everything in 9ja is opposite of reality.
    6.Quick addition, has anyone noticed that African countries always have the youngest teams in any age group male or female tournaments? The truth is lack of sincerity and ignorance. I was surprised to see 16 and 17 year olds in an African u20 competition and they will still go to the World Cup with almost the same age later this year. The rules states that the players must be not be above 20 on the day of the “FIRST MATCH OF QUALIFYING”. So you can actually be 21 or 22 when the actual World cup is being played but the mumu Africans that are corrupted with cheating still drags this players age down by as much as 8 to 10 years to play in the competition. I no fit laff my people.
