    So what’s in it Aisha, the owner of the cup that brought FIFA/CAF to Nigeria? Not even a number 28 jersey? FIFA/CAF/Buhari will soon rightly be accused of a snobbish and chauvinistic attitude. We don’t oppress women here, please.

      ThankGod they didn’t give him a green number 10 jersey. Keep the blue Jersey we don’t mind. As long as Iwobi’s number 10 SE jersey did not enter your hands.
