    Nice to see you back home…
    I wish you the very best of outings with the super eagles of Nigeria now and forever. Ameen.

    The team is gradually taking a fantastic shape going to the AFCON…
    Hope to see players like Ademola Lookman and ovie ejaria back home too in November. What the super eagles really need now is a ball-playing playmaker who is capable to retain ball possession for the team..

    As for scoring we don already get them aplenty. I want to special salute Steven Gerrard for helping Nigeria develop Bassey.

    Looking like Olise is going to pitch his tent with Algeria but for every player we lose there’s like 5 or more to be discovered with the abundance of talents we have in this generation so no worries. Algerian officials are reported to have promised him an automatic spot if they qualify for the WC.
