  • We want chukwueze in afcon not u20 world cup

    How come the lad who partnered Ozonwafor in the playoffs not listed?
    I think they both formed a good partnership.Forgot this lads name,he plays for Rosenborg in Norway.

      Igho ogbu….hasn’t featured in any first team game for Rosenburg since the tournament.

      • Paschal 4 weeks ago

        Awwwwww so sad to hear that. He is such a quick and smart defender. I personally think he did better than Ozornwafor in that tournament. Well we pray for his quick recovery into competitive football.

  • Benasure 4 weeks ago

    Igho ogbu may not have played too many games for his club side Rosenburg but guy is very good,Igho Ogbu is Far better center half to Valentine ozorwafor. Ozorwafor is just over rated

    • greenturf 4 weeks ago

      Yeah agreed,Igho Ogbu was a marshal at the back but Valentine took all the glory,though both were phenomenal.I still can’t believe he wasn’t listed.

  • Chairmanfemi 4 weeks ago

    Even Nazifi Yahaya is omitted! Also the BENETT’S(Jayden Benett who plays for Watford and his brother that plays for Leverkusen in Germany). This guys have agreed to play for Nigeria, Jayden even trained with the team in Abuja before the AFCON U-20 tournament and was then called up by his club. Na wa for this Aigbogun ooo. Anyway, I wish him all the best. Am particularly impressed with the addition of Manchester City’s Tom Dele-Bashiru. He’s a gem
