    I want Red-Hot Onuachu to keep scoring goals to show Oga Rohr that he can nit manage the team.

    Let him bring in Osimeh, the hope of the team to come and score more goals for Nigeria.

    He, Oga Rohr brought in Dessers and he didn’t use him well. Nwakali should be on the list not on standby.

    Maja should be on that list. Those that deserves to be on that list wasn’t but Akpeyi that has nothing left to offer Nigeria made the list. Continue Oga Rohr. Time will tell. God bless Nigeria!!!

      Mr man…shut up and go and protest. Go and quit your job and protest. SE must boycott qualifiers and be banned for 4 years, but you that loves Nigerian masses more than everybody else cannot quit your own job, yet you open your big mouth to come and talk about the same SE. Hypocrite. Easier said than done. Even to quit CSN for one day hard you….LMAO, but SE should boycott matches and be banned for 4 years……LMAO
      Tell Onuachu to keep scoring penalties ehn, while Dessers and others keep scoring with their feet from open play. He will retire from the SE as a standby list regular eventually…LMAO

        @Dr.Drey is penalty not part of goals? That’s what Iheanacho could not score against Tunisia mind you!

        • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

          Penalty is part of goals, but everyday is not Christmas. Even the penalty sef, its not every time you will score it, just like iheanacho. He has been the SE penalty taker and has been tucking them in, even in LCFC, he is regarded as one of the best PK takers but as everyday nor be christmas, he lost the last one. So tell your ‘wait and get’ striker to continue depending on penalties ehn. Na dia other strikers go meet am pass am….LMAO. Teams in Belgium are already decoding his game. Eupen made sure he never got any crosses to head last night…..so he should continue depending of crosses and penalties only……LMAO. You see despite all his ‘goals’ in belgium, na only standby list e fit make…even the last time he didnt even make standby….it was condition that made him get an invite…LMAO

        Dr Drey, na wa for this pipo sha! Ahn ahn! SE players should jump down from Empire State building, SE players should go on hunger strike, SE players should sacrifice years of hard work and put their hard earned careers in jeopardy! Yet, these same guys are not willing to miss their dinner tonight in solidarity with the protest. For where! It is easy to sit on their couch and ask SE players to make big sacrifices for Nigeria, when they are not ready to lift even one finger for Nigeria!

    • OmoEsan 2 years ago

      Omo Naija, I greet you sir.

      Since you know better than Oga Rohr why didn’t you apply for the position when NFF was searching for an affordable coach all over the world?

      Scouting job was also available, you did not apply and you will now come and start recommending players online.

      NFF chairmanship position was available, you didn’t challenge Oga Pinick and Chief Giwa, now you’re coming here to disturb our life.

      You will do well to respect yourself and leave the gaffer to do his job.
      Agbalagba ni ti ara yin ooo!

      • Dr. Drey 2 years ago

        Hahahaha…..that one na agabya. Agba ti o kin ronu. Agba elenu gbongbon…LMAO.

  • 3 Goals in 8 games without regular playing tym?..Don’t worry Dessers, your tym will surely comes.


  • Obidee 2 years ago

    Mr poster it was 3:0 Genk vs Eupen not 4:0 as u posted here. Onuachu assist Dessers to scored the second goal and Bongonda netted the third goal

    what about Anthony Nwakaeme? nobody is talking about him. I know it is rohr’s job to invite and manage the players, but personally speaking I would have gone for Anthony ahead of Dennis. but I can also understand rohr future plans in using younger players so that we can have a coherent and perfect team that plays with harmony. Rohr wants to build ahead of 2022 a team playing to their strength, that’s probably why he haven’t invited simy again. probably the same reason why Anthony has been ignored. it is painful to build a team around a player then the next thing you hear is that the player has retire. meaning you have to start the construction all over again! but I still prefer Anthony to musa and Dennis combined!
    keeping this in mind, someone should please help me tell nff to go for Michael olise since eze (as explained by the media) don’t necessarily think SE is good enough for him
    Super Eagles all the best!

  • daniel 2 years ago

    pls why Our coaches ignore Junior Ajayi who is complete striker from junior teams? that guy is a beast, his beta then some strikers in national team, is it because he play in Eygtsian league? am not a jonalist but i know Ajayi junior suppose be in super eagles.

  • Kingston 2 years ago

    who would you have benched for junior Ajayi? remember also that football league matters a lot. a player that scores 30 goals Nigeria football professional league is not at the same level with a player that scores 10 in the premier league, and with a long distance.

  • Sebi u also suggested Anthony Nwakwaeme and Simy now u re asking who Junior Ajayi will bench. Since all of you are good in mentioning players up and down without thinking how such a player will be useful to the team. Continue you una go mention names tire…

  • D-Cardinal 2 years ago

    Allow the coach to do his job if he fails,criticize him.working in Nigeria is not easy,there are many things going behind the scene that we can’t see,yet the coach is trying as much to stick to his guns..Before you criticize,ask yourself if you can do better than what he is doing or has done? If yes Then you shouldn’t be in CSN platform burning your data and time..Before throwing more shades at this coach cast your mind how SE faired under former coaches… This man gets alot of backlashes from the fans,yet he has remained grounded and calm.. The best thing we can do is to give him the necessary support and encouragement, if he fails it is left for NFF to decide his fate….

    • GLORY 2 years ago

      A big thumbs up @ D-cardinal. God bless. Sometimes, I just wonder who do nigerians this thing. We can never ever enter next gear with this attitude. So I ain’t surprised, that while countries like Malaysia, India, even obscure African countries are matching on, nigeria still dey go 1 step forward, multiple steps backward. Everyone thinking the problem is our leaders but I n I will tell who cares to listen, that leaders are children of the system ( THE PEOPLE’S WAY OF DOING THINGS). Change that way of thinking first, then everything, including good governance will fall into place. ITS AUTHOMATIC. MAY JEHOVAH GOD HELP US.

  • Onuachu should apply to our national dailies for a change of name. From Paul Onuachu to Penalty Onuachu.
    To be honest, Onuachu can’t do well in the Super Eagles as presently constituted. The type of striker Super Eagles need at this point of our evolution, is a striker who is very good in hold up play, has great ball control, dribbling skills and good in passing, amongst others.
    However, if we must invite P. Onuachu…..then, he would have to be on the bench until whenever penalty comes our way….. he would be brought in to take the penalty and go back straight to the bench…. lol
