  • WOW look at the players Victor Boniface is being paired with and the players he beat to this line up yet he is deemed not good enough for Super Eagles?.. NFF is a joke, such is life there will come a time when we would wish we had utilised the arsenal at our disposal. As for Orban he will accept a Togo call up if this injustice continues watch out

    But our SENIOR MEN IN GLASS HOUSE PREFER ONUACHU TO A EUROPA LEAGUE NO. 9

    NNF UNA WELL DONE OOO.

  • This is not NFF problem it is the problem of the coach, if he had invited them and insist on his list no one at the NFF will say no. Gernot Rhor had the same problem when he was here , he overlooked players like Awoniyi Moffi, Dennis, samuel Kalu Nietc and i for one believes he was the reason Alapasu was not groomed inspite of the fact the he remains the only goal keeper from Nigeria that have ever won the golden hand in any Fifa competition. The present coach is as bad as the former if not worse
