  • Na waoooo
    What is the bases of inviting Anayo Iwuala?
    I don’t really know who is pushing for his invitation. I seriously don’t see him fitting into the SE. If the issue is to cap him, he’s been capped already and there are more professionals that are currently doing well.
    Enough of Iwuala’s IV

    You probably didn’t read the story well, this complete sports management need to replace this reporter as soon as today, the report says Iwuala is in the expanded list of the super eagles and COULD be invited for the qualifiers, it didn’t say he has been invited it says he may or may not be invited. That is if there are 30 or 35 players in the expanded list and the coach can only invite 24 players he may not be invited if there are better players in the pecking order. So just calm down!

    Wow! Mr. Nice I love your understanding of the article as my thought was exactly same as yours after reading @qasa the brave” comment.

    I don’t think he will be invited this time but just in the expanded list.

    Lol. Expanded list my foot!
    CSN and their biased reporting.
    If at all Iwula is in the list it will be for two reasons: for sake of the team’s chemistry and higher powers that be.
    Based strictly on merit Iwula won’t even make super eagles team B among the wingers chosen. You doubt me?
    Team A list will obviously contain players such as (in no hierarchy) – chukwueze, kalu, Musa and Simon
    Team B – onyekuru, ejuke, olayinka and Dennis/Marcus
    Funny isn’t it? Only God in heaven knows what else if meritocracy has cost Nigeria as a country.
    Iwula… CSN please don’t make me laugh
