    “Invite homebase Invite homebase” now small invitation for SE e don japa enter Tunisia….Qoute me anywhere, those ex-internationals noise makers have ulterior motives with the whole home based bs….

      Would you rather he remains a homebase in a poor funded league with substandard infrastructures?
      A move to a top Tunisian club a league listed as some of the best in Africa is good for the young fellas development as well Nigeria

        @ Greenturf, the point @ Jones is emphasizing is SE must never be used as platform for marketing players. It’s absolutely wrong, otherwise if not stopped, every selfish agent will turn our dear national team into fighting arena. Senior national team is where the best of the best come to represent to project the face of a country’s football, which can ultimately attracts bounty investment in country’s football. Now to Iwuala, in as much as he going to Esperance is better than playing in the local league, he may have just lost or make it really difficult to represent Nigeria at any level. The Chan is only for HOMEBASED players, which I suggest CAF should change to accommodate country’s Africa based players as well. Can’t see him being invited to the main stream SE atleast not presently. With the program lined up for the HOMEBASED players, I would have advised he tarry a lil while until after next year Chan before going foreign but anyway it’s his choice n he wears the shoe n know where it pinches.

    Congratulations Anayo.
    Please who is the next on line for the super eagles to advertise.
    I am not against good move for any player but what I find funny is the non challant attitude of our football elite to the team’s chemistry. Anayo that they all praise and wanted to be part of Nigerian team now does not have a slot anymore, he would from now onwards be referred to as foreign player and then it becomes imperative for the coach to damage the team chemistry by getting another home based, not minding the consequence.
    If Anayo will continue with the team, then no problem but if he will be push aside for another have baked talent, all in the name of local content, then we need to check our brains.
