      Leave story o, that was back in the days! Football these days is not where the players play it’s about teams playing as a unit! Man for man Dey are no match for us but if they play as a unit again us, we would be worst hit than what we xperiencd with Sierra Leone!.. until then let’s keep our heads low and humble cuz no small teams again in football especially in Africa.. our group is still very open

  • They ve guys that are playing raw football. It not going to be easy . Eagles are playing the jollof rice football. U cant compare raw rice with jollof rice .u can perform the experiment at home. Put jollof rice in a pot and put raw rice in another pot. Switch on the light at the same time in gas cooker. Let see the one that will soft fast. The one in pot one will quickly . While the pot 2. Will tale long time to get tired.
    By the time u have consume pot 1. Pot 2 will begin to get sweeter.
    Meaning. Same like sierria Leone gain will play out.unless.
