    This is the guy that was supposed to be invited and not bameyi. Those scouting our players for selection are either corrupt or inept

      Thumbs up sisterwoman Mercy. Nigeria is a joke. Too much corruption everywhere.

    • The name of the player alone will tell you they are just trying to balance the equation, knowing that Ahmed Musa is there to boost morale and not to play.
      As long as this balancing of equations continues in place of merit, we have a long way to go.
