    So apparently,the team has just one day(Wednesday)of full house training wow!The reason the coach can’t invite many new players has to maintain a core..

    • Sam Ade 6 months ago

      Yes, I thought the same thing!

      Nigeria football is getting dead because of our bad leaders and corruption.

      I am saying all this from London, UK.

        Sometimes i wonder the kinds of human beings that come on this platform to come and ditch out nonsense. Did someone just buy you data and needed to waste it. So how is this the governments fault. Is it the government that is running the NFF. Last time we checked that would be considered interference. Is it the government that is selecting layers for the national team. Until you all be honest with yourselves and admit that we just have average players. Next time channel ur anger towards FIFA and Caf for this tight scheduling.

          My brother, do you want to tell me that bad leaders doesn’t affect our football.
          Secondly, man knows man affected our football as well???
          Yes or no?

    Only 10 players for a game on Thursday!

    They are lucky they are playing Lesotho, if they try this against South Africa, it will not be funny.

    I know many played on Sunday but this is Tuesday afternoon.. they should be in camp lastest this evening

    This is why it’s better to prosecute this type of games with players you’re familiar with. All the gaffer and his crew can do is to observe the fitness level of his supposed first 11 and get them ready for the game on Thursday. No time to waste time.

    Why can we train at least ten home based players from the country that we are over 200 millions humans being.

    God have a mercy on us in Nigeria, amen.

    Why can’t we train at least ten home based players properly from the country that we are over 200 millions humans being.

    God have a mercy on us in Nigeria, amen.
