    Wahala dey bayi o! The news came at a time we can’t call a player to replace him. So now we have not 100% fit Ebuehi and on and off Shehu at the Right Back. Awaziem can’t be drafted cuz he’s the only Back up for The Center Backs that we have…Which way Nigeria? Abi make we beg Brazil to postpone this match

  • This is serious. I think Rohr will have to draft in Awaziem to manned the right wing back position.

    Ebuehi, jamilu Collins or abdulahi shehu can be drafted in to fill in for him. We’ve got back up I believe. No worries

    I think Collins is a better replacement. I watched him played a first class scheming with a very good left foot. That was cool.
