    I’m just optimistic, against all odds, that the Super Eagles will make us proud. Honestly, I don’t know where that optimism and belief are coming from

      We are all optimistic but let whatever performance the Super Eagles are able to grind be a reason to retain that PE teacher calling himself a coach

      I don’t mean to rain on your parade buy do so cautiously. That manager is clueless.

    The provisional squad lists for the Africa Cup of Nations were released last week, and most of the top countries had few players from their local leagues the quality of local football in Africa is very low, and including home,based players is a risk no country wants to take.
