      Well said Brodaman. Awaziem the lion heart is a king among defenders. I and I will not be deceived by the international media who always praise average Western players. Therein lies their useless hypocrisy. Who is John Stones, who is Harry Maguire when you have the rock of Gallipoli that is Awaziem. It is not a joke that he became a mainstay at Boavista to the point of them splashing mega bucks to keep him in. Therein lies their belief in Awaziem. Rather than some of our players wasting away in the overhyped, overmarketed and overrated English Premer League, they should follow Awaziem to Portugal and shine like the blessed boys from Babylon. I and I never rates the British whereupon a whole 4 nations (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland) have not won a tea cup in over 50 years. At least Portugal won the European Championship recently. Iwobi, get out of there. See what Awaziem is doing in Portugal. Jah Bless Awaziem, Jah Bless Iwobi and Jah blessings to all deserving Super Eagles players.
