  • I am truly loving this player, oyedupe Payne. By mile, Nigeria’s best player so far and peradventure we get to the final, then sure to come back with an individual award. If the other players can become as quick as Payne and Alozie, Falcons will be almost impossible to beat. That is one aspect Falcons are letting themselves down; a bit laid back in approach.
