    Kenneth or Awaziem are very good replacement.

  • We just need to win the match irrespective who’s fielded. Omeruo is good. But then, who is replacing Yusuf? Aribo, abi?

      God bless you, what will happen if God forbid ola sustain injury today? I want to beg, Awaziem should not be part of defense ooo, Paul should not also be part of the squad ooo. The heart attack way this current government Dey give us is enough oooo

    Why are people running away from Bruno, this is we’re ebuchi would have come in, but know we all prefer mediocrity. Many praised the coach for over looking ebuchi, now see it. Ola suppose to rest, along with Ajayi. I hear someone calling Awaziem, ok

    CSN, we’re almost 4hrs to the all important match. Important because we need to top the group. pls, send pictures from Yamoussoukro and Abidjan asap. Tnx.

  • A team is prone to injuries especially muscle injuries when the physical training is very intense and rigorous……it’s mostly common in black players because of the volume of muscles they possess…..The physicality of this super eagle’s team is somehow on a high side as compared to others I have seen of recent…. Knowing this then the coach should have taken his complete 27 man players to the tournament because as it stands we might run out of players if we go far in the tournament
