    And this one too claims to be injured after seeing a 90th minute red card wonders will not end no be your fault.

    Harry Kane had an injury during the match against Manchester United but, he played the whole of 90 mins…

  • @Chima bro, abeg free that guy as his dedication to the cause to me is never in question.during last WC qualifiers even this AFCONQs too he’s been ever present except when not invited. But where did his commitment and loyalty take him as regards 2018 WC? He was discarded for an Akpeyi who was a waste of spot(as i prefer to register 2 GKs for tournaments)& a very inconsistent Idowu as rewards for his patriotism of choosing Nigeria over England as@ the time he was skipper of England’s U-21s Lions coach by now England’s boss Gareth Southgate

    Hope Aina can now be recalled if he is injury free to play for Nigeria at Asaba this weekend. He wasn’t faking it.

    @Cuteprince, you are right.
    In addition, Echiejele was taken to the world cup 2018 to compensate for missing the 2012 edition. God will reward those mediocres at helms of SE managwment.
