  • It is now a well known fact . To be on 1st eleven team member of the super eagles of Nigeria. A player must be playing regularly in his club in Europe.

  • Abraham on fire

  • Rohr should utilise Ajayi a midfielder, his expression is second to non there on that department.

  • Asoko Emmanuel 10 months ago

    @Presh,I share ur sentiment.But u see Ajayi can’t be a starter for SE either in defence or mid field region cos of the so much option ahead of him.But this competition is very healthy for the Eagles and will only bring the best out of the team.I look forward to a time our bench will be as good as the starting eleven.God bless Nigeria.

  • Ajayi is an utility player. The most worrying part of SE is Ekong. Recent matches have really exposed his low defensive IQ, low passing ability and poor positioning.

  • dat guy ekong ehh e need brain surgery.

    abeg nff should work on tomori and ejaria fast fast and 4get tammy and setup a friendly match between england and 9ja.

    ejaria CAM, TOMORI CB, uduokhai CB, lukman WF, To replace brain tired ekong,and simon, onuachu, esiti, and move omeruo up to CDM bcus of his tackling ability.
