    Nigeria should not accept such thing, bcos they want to infect our players with covid-19.

    That’s great. We’d rather face and beat them with their full squad. We don’t want any excuse.

  • Hope they won’t infest our players with Covid

    They will be on the bench and will not able to start,that khadsri thier captain is the only player that can give u headache because he is full of running, He has played against us in 2019 and 2020 but he didn’t do much

      Which headache? Even if all of them recover from COVID, they are no match for Nigeria.My only concern is that they don’t spread the COVID to our guys.
