  • hypocrites everywhere! during Edo state election the campaign grounds recorded tens of thousands of supporters, and there was no social distancing. but now that its football, there should be no person in the stadium. i thought they said seven thousand fans should be allowed to watch, but they should maintain social distancing

      Nigerian players should learn how not to loose possession of the ball easily and carelessly… it’s so annoying and an eyesore, looking at how poorly some of the so called stars lose possession to opponents so cheaply that it affects everything about the game… our coaches should look at the quality of the players, looking at some of these simple quality before bringing them to feature for the national team…
