    Why so late bro?


    No Covid on you

    No league games played with Paderborn (compared with Ebuehi who understandably played a late game)

    …just thank God you’ve got a calm Eguavoen on the manager’s seat, cos you surely know what would have been coming to you with this lateness.

    It is well!

      Well, a little corrigendum here…. I have just noticed SC Paderborn actually played a game on Saturday though (not sure if he featured or not), but then still, his club should have known better (if they were actually the ones holding him).
      Error is highly regretted.

      All the same; all the best!

        The man hasn’t played for his club since Nov 28.
        An absolute disgrace that he is even on the squad and that he wasn’t replaced when the coach had a chance to.

    What was the reason for his absence why are there no report about it?We the super eagles fans deserves to know why Collins is just turning up

    • Mahmud Shuaib 5 months ago

      Good question.
      What irks me the more is why NFF/Eguavoen contrived to deny us better, eager, hungrier and ready players.

      Imagine no DESSERS, no AMOO and a retired IGHALO they were hell bent on foisting on us didnt show up eventually. Just like ONIGBESE NFF (apologies @POMPEI) didnt know CAF rules on player replacements, a very selfish (my personal opinion) IGHALO behaved as if he was ignorant of the contract he signed with AL SHABAB as regards representing SE. Why he allowed his personal interest cost us a space for any of DESSERS or AMOO is unpardonable!

      See an inferior COLLINS (yes, BASSEY is better on current form and club pedigree) is just arriving CAMEROON when BASSEY wpuld have hit SE camp since.

      Not fair at all.

        A complete disgrace that Nigeria should be held to ransom by an ‘out of shape’, bench-warming, poor German div 2 player, when a much better player in Bassey (Glasgow Rangers), who has been a starter for his club was overlooked.

        I mean, what kind of player will show up for a MAJOR competition barely 24 hrs to a major game? No reason for him to have remained on the team in place of much better and committed players.

        Please no apologies required. Go ahead and call them NFF ONIGBESE. That is there name, until we see change for the better.

    Don’t let anything distract you from the big game tomorrow. When you are focused, you are a very special footballer. Go for the win, Jamilu.

  • Maybe he has family issues or fitness issues cause he has no other excuse for being this late

  • Ako AMADI 5 months ago

    Collins will have to sit this one out!Sanusi is playing better

  • Jamilu didn’t take the SE and AFCON seriously at all, just as Ighalo. No wahala, the team handlers should take their nonchalant attitudes into consideration, by inviting players like Bassey, Dessers and Amaoo in the World cup qualifiers as their replacement.

  • Rumour has it that his club tried to strong arm him into signing a contract extension.
    They would not allow him to go if he didn’t extend his contract. He can decide to walk away for free as his contract expires in less than six months

  • JC what happened to you. Why did u take so long to report to camp. Well I guess you know that you wont play in the first game and if possible the who group games.
    I hope the new coach is seeing all this and taking notes.
    I have said this before, he isnt doing his chances in the team any good by coming to camp by this time.
    Alot of people feel he shouldn’t have been included in the team list but thats up for debate. I just hope he justifies his inclusion in the team.
