    Cheering news…. NANTES plays in a TOP 5 League

    He deserves CALL UPS subsequently if he gets games time there

    We don’t want EFL CHAMPIONSHIP players, SPANISH SEGUNDA, TURKEY, GREECE, CYPRUS and Scottish players etc.

    Even BELGIUM based players shouldn’t be invited unless in positions we are not PROPERLY covered like DEFENSIVE AND CENTRAL MIDFIELD where I believe we need the likes of ONYEDIKA and ALHASSAN

    If you believe you are GOOD ENOUGH for SE, get a TOP 5 LEAGUE Clubside to strut your stuff

    Good news for Super Eagles that many SE players will transfer for good clubs in this season 2023-2024 , see Adrabioyo wiil transfer to Monaco, Iheancho wiil transfer to Everton, Bassey transfered to Fulham, the big one is for Samu Chukwueze to AC Milan, finally Awaziem to Nantes ; so these SE players transitions will benefit them and so SE team, SE can be formidable and incredible team in Africa and the World.

    • Adarabioyo isn’t a part of the Super Eagles.

      • Likely to be part of SE,because he just gott his Nigeria Passport today.

        • I hope so. Most of them get their Nigerian passport because they want to visit and render some form of support to their country of origin. Bukayo Saka,Karim Adeyemi, Antetokunpo all visited recently but are representing other countries.

    But top five league players can’t win sierra Leon or guinea Bissau convincingly;my point is not your clubs but want you can offer to the super eagles,if you like play for real Madrid as far as you have nothing to offer you’re not welcome irrespective of your clubs that’s the way it should be

    • Is it possible to play for Real Madrid and still have nothing to offer? You think a player will be playing for a big club without offering any thing?

        Very beautiful question….LMAOo.

        I guess people just wake up one day, pack their boots and go and start training at Real Madrid….LMAooo

    • Dr. Drey 10 months ago

      Cant you see Sierra leone and Guinea Bissau with 3 point lead on top of our AFCON qualifying group with a game to spare…..?

      Even Argentina lost to Saudi Arabia….it does not take away the overall quality and potentials of Argentina..

  • NFF should encourage or lure Adarabioyo and Tonuriga in Gent to play for Nigeria, so that there could be a bit sanity in SE defence unlike we are witnessing at present.
