    At least Uzoho is playing at old trafford today.  Just made a good fingertip save from a wicked shot from casemiro.  But quite similar to the goal conceeded against Algeria, he misjudged the flight of the ball

    • Lord AMO 2 years ago

      He is balling out today though.  Man of the match at this point with a series of fine saves

  • beejay 2 years ago

    Uzoho dey try oh …

  • Lord AMO 2 years ago

  • Ololo 2 years ago

    I’m surprised nobody is talking about that Boniface boy.. he is good! Very Good! This was the same way oshimen started, the Belgian league was where he developed his game before going to France.. I don’t see Boniface staying in Belgium for so long.. he is pure class and one for the future.. I pray he stays fit..

    We don dey talk am since. Boniface is a good striker. I was hoping Pese will invite him against Algeria, but he was understandably left out, as we have much talent in the striking department. But the way Boni has been playing lately, it will be hard for the SE handlers not to notice.

  • I think Boniface should take awoniyis place for the next friendly games. If we are playing against any lowly rated side, we can try him out. But I like what I see of him. He has a lot good attributes on the field and his game is impressive.

    Victor Boniface is a talented footballer.
    He will definitely come out with his best performance in any game.

  • Nantes is currently winless in its last seven matches (six losses and one draw).
