    Aribo the Roman emperor is one of those players that will always force you out to comment on Nigeria football irrespective of the depressing decision making by so called administrators/ex internationals. WHAT A PLAYER IS THE BOY ARIBO? AT SUCH YOUNG AGE ,NO FRAUD, HE IS DEFINITELY NOT GOING TO BE AT RANGERS NEXT SEASON. JUST NEED A TOP TEAM, TO RANK AMONST WORLD BEST IN HIS POSITION. SOUTHGATE MUST BE BITING HARD HIS FINGERS, ON HOW HE MISSED OUT THIS ONE.
    Heaven bless Aribaaaaa ARIBO and all deserving Super Eagles players. LOLZZZZ ZA ZA ZA ZA
