    NFF yeye technical department no see this boy? At a time like this when we need good midfielders?

      Don’t mind them. This Gusau led NFF will go down as the most inept group to take over football administration in Nigeria. Just take a look at this good player in a position where our 6 is no longer strong. Ndidi is a shadow of himself and can not cover the pitch anymore, this guy can come in to solve the problem. When I mention NFF , it also includes the clueless technical committee.

      I understand that they are looking at a Belgian coach who left his job coaching an African side. I hope they are not referring to Tom saintfiet because it will be truly tragic.

    Facts, we should stop wasting our time on those clueless buffoons, These guys  never  built any successful business, so they lacked the managerial and organization skills. Cap most of these young hungry players now, after all the Europeans are doing the same thing. Must we wait and  continue to loose all these guys the way Rohr lost EZE.

      Nooooo, don’t lie on Rohr about Eze blame the useless NFF president back then who took pictures with him and then posted it online and claimed he will play for Nigeria when the boy had not made up his mind. These bastards especially this Gusau will ruin our football if care is not taken. He refuses to start early preparations for tournaments or qualifiers for our national teams….Ghana’s female team will be playing Japan soon in preparation for the Olympics…….Nigeria has no plan in sight at all.

        Bro, this isn’t the first time this nonsense has happened. Gusau and his crew have a track record for this kind of unpreparedness. Our Super Falcons went to the last World Cup without a single friendly match apart from those played months before. And since they did relatively well, it probably makes the NFF think it’s okay to prepare for international competitions without proper warm-up games. That’s the kind of NFF we’ve got in this country.

        And now, Japan is playing Ghana because they are in our group. But who are we going to play to prepare for Japan? Only God knows. It’s like they think our players are superheroes who can just show up and magically perform without any preparation. Classic NFF.
