  • This guy just came to AFCON to cash out in expense of other player, one thing is to be patriotic and another is to be selfish, I like his dedication but this is not too good from him.

    Maybe he has been sent home from camp for being deceitful and selfish?

    Honestly I’m disenchanted with Awaziem attitude even though I’m a huge fan. He should have left the slot for Bassey or Akpoguma. I like the NFF to take disciplinary action against him to serve as a deterrent to other in case of next time.

    • The NFF disciplinary action must also extend to Ighalo who deceitfully wasted a spot for SE in the AFCON. It is unacceptable!

      He should have made his club stance known early enough, just like Dennis Watford did, for the NFF& Coaches to take cover.

        NFf can never do that cos they know they are the guilty party here. No club can ever stop a player from repping his country via any contract clause or whatever. NFf sold lies and u are buying it.
