    I think we should exercise patients on this Orban.

    Orban this, Orban that, if I may ask, where is “EJUKE” today? That guy called Ejuke has potential, and he showed commitment and dedication, but today, nobody is talking about Ejuke anymore. He Ejuke hasn’t fulfilled his mission in the Super Eagles yet. There’s nothing wrong if Oga Paseiro can manage both Ejuke and Orban.

    We still have so many abundant talented players who have to join this team.

    Oga Paseiro has no excuses to perform extremely well at Afcon Ivory Coast.

    Nwakali is needed in this Super Eagles, likewise Dessers, Nwabali, and Osagwe. The gaffer has to create compensation in the Super Eagles if he has to stay longer with the team.

    No more wasting space in the Super Eagles. Every player invited by the gaffer has to show commitments. Let’s leave Orban so that he can fully grow because he has to be fully mature before the next World Cup. The same thing applies to Ejuke, too.

    Ejaria is also another player who has rare skills, among others. But I don’t know his where about these days. Our reserve has to be strong like our first eleven. That is my point here kę.

    Against Sao tome, I want to see Oga Paseiro approach. His tactics and early substitutions, and he can read games to make changes. If he can do all that, then he should be ready for Afcon. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!
