  • We know Mahrez. We know Slimani. We know Brahimi. Leicester, West Ham, Porto, Schalka04 etc. We know Musa Ahmed. We know kelechi Iheanacho. We know Alex Iwobi. We know Victor Moses. We know Efong. Leicester, Chelsea, Arsenal, ManCity, Olympiakos, Mantz. Already I have detected one silly and probably it was made deceive us. Just one goalkeeper? What if he is injured and could not continue? If they  are to play team like Italy or Germany, he will be targeted and injured. Nigerian do not have such hard stance as their strategy but it is worth considering. Its madness and a great risk taking just one goalkeeper. Mr Rohr take not. There is fear in Algeria becos of Ahmed Musa's fastness and speed. We are waiting.
