  • If this guy continue this way I don’t think there would be space for balogun except he plays regularly.
    Our players are playing well because they know play well and surely they would be invited… No more pay to play.. But play to play.. No wonder we are moving up in FIFA ranking

    Honestly, Ajayi’s exclusion from the Afcon squad came as a huge surprise to me. I always thought he was going to be in there, especially because he can play multiple positions. Glad to see he is doing well. More grease to elbow, lad!
