    I am suspecting that this guy might be one of those that told rohr he doesn’t want to play for us again after his sack,I remember that rohr said something about some players not wanting to play again.otherwise I don’t see why he wouldn’t make it to Afcon and not getting called up this rime.if it’s true,then we may have to think twice about pressuring players to switch nationality.thier commitment and patriotism is usually zero

    • FatherJP 2 years ago

      And how many times did ROHR feauture him?????


  • Now where are those who said Kevin Akpoguma has not been playing regularly for TSG 1899 Hoffenheim in the German Bundesliga? I have already said somewhere in this forum that Akpoguma should be called up immediately as a replacement for injured William Troost-Ekong for the game with Ghana. Even in-form Cyriel Dessers should be cap-tied in a competitive game for Nigeria. The free-scoring Feyernood striker is still eligible to play for Belgium.We should remember he only featured in a friendly game for Nigeria.The Ghana game would have been the ideal setting to secure Dessers and Glasgow Rangers left back,Calvin Bassey for the three-time African Champions. The more,they say,the merrier.That’s why I like the Brazilian Football Federation ,they will never miss this type of opportunity. What is wrong with us?

  • Nigeria football is unpredictable because of the politics by NFF. It’s been doing more harm than good

    Unfortunately he remains one of the country’s most consistent performer who never gets a look in by the people in charge. So sad.

    An AKPOGUMA who plays for a top 7 clubdide in a top 5 EUROPEAN LEAGUE and yet never gets considered meanwhile CYPRUS based defender is considered as well as DIVISION 2 players in SPAIN and England. Even a bench warmer in a DIVISION 2 clubside in SAUDI ARABIA gets a call up at the detriment of a regular in a top 5 EUROPEAN LEAGUE!

    Najeriya we hail thee.
    Sad that local coaches for whatever reasons will not fail to behave typical. Little wonder NFF either hands the rein to them or backwater coaches like GERNOT ROHR who they can also manipulate!

    Good luck SE

    Honestly it’s mind blogging why Akpoguma was not invited even as a replacement for injured Ekong

    This guy need to be given a chance to prove himself.

    Is like coach Egu didn’t like light skin players.

    This guy is far better than some of the current Eagle defenders right now.
