    Akpoguma’s career is deteriorating! I remember when he had the chance to play in the Last Afcon but rejected it seeking assurance to start all games even without first coming for training..

    Ajayi accepted in his place and at a time his career was nothing to write home about but look at ajayi today and compare him with akpoguma..

    Humility is important in football..

    • Aptly captured. I love the way Ajayi kept his head down and has steadily grown and fine-tuned his game, metamorphosing into a rock-solid defender with aerial threats in set pieces. He knew how tough the competition was but developed the right attitude and grit to break in and slowly cement a starting 11 shirt in a quality-laden Super Eagles

      Humility pays.
