    lolzz….A big big sorry to Mauritania. They got beaten by Over-age players claiming to be U-20. To my Flying Eagles, let make it a Record-8th time in 2019

  • Wow! These boys are so lucky, becuse they have a good coach. I am so happy.

    left for super eagle. although the progress of supereagle lies in hand of nff if they can get rid of genot rohr, then we are to win the afcon.

  • Under 20 indeed! we keep doing the same thing over n over gain. some of these players have played 3 to 4 season in NPFL and they are still under 20. Nigeria problem is critical and institutional. Have you seen future Eagles (under 15) matches? only two of those ones can genuinely claim under 15. 80% of those future eagles players are the one that opts to play this under 20 qualifiers
