  • I just hope d libya game thought d coach a lesson. Against Sudan to get 4 goals might not be easy. D boys to put d ball in d net are busy in urope

    • Aauxtyne 2 years ago

      Some of those guys may join later. The game should be taken very seriously and not put us in the state of using our calculators.

  • One would have thought that the national football teams know who they want. Call up 23 and put 5 on standby. What is all this camp 35 and chop and change.

    We have played under 23 games already this year. Contact those players from the last game, if they are not available then contact one of the 5 on standby.

    Are we going to be camping 35 players for every single match the under 17, under 20 and under 23 match we play??

  • The matches are being held during the fifa international football window [2nd to 10th September, so there is no danger of clubs abroad withholding players

  • okponku 2 years ago

    hmmm this Sudan again?
